Our school district had to seriously be the last school in the entire U.S. to have spring break. It was the week after Easter!!! Every other mother I know had kids taking it in March or early April, not the END of April! I decided to start a tradition unbeknownst to my mother that this would be the first of many years the kids can go to my parent's house and spend spring break with the grandparents! I didn't know what I was going to do with them and this seemed to work out perfect! I drove 10 hours and can't even begin to describe the car ride. I can't even go there right now. As we headed from California into Oregon there was a blinding snow storm! Lola and Bryce were hysterical they were so excited! Me not so much! My windshield wipers were moving so fast that they broke! I stopped off after it had calmed down a bit, so I could calm my nerves! Here are some pics I took of them standing in the snow.
Lola was so proud to have us at open house. I met her friends and saw her desk. She took me around to the different stations they have in their classroom and then showed me around her school. It was amazing to see her so confident and in control of her surroundings. Her teacher, Mrs. Alvarado, is amazing. I just love her. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher.
Now the next step is for me to perform and for them to watch their own mother. How amazing. Stay tuned.... I'll let you know!

A few minutes go by and I come back in the kitchen and this is what I see. He has lifted the lid and started the washing machine!! He is literally about to fall in head first. I said "I told you to stop washing!" His reply "I want to wear my muscle shirt tomorrow!" I told him I would do it!
5 minutes later this is what I see as I round the corner. He has managed to get completely wedged between the washer and dryer. I almost left him there I was so tired of chasing him around! For the record I did help him and almost literally tied him to his bed! And... yes he did have a clean muscle shirt the next day!
