I have 3 kids and 2 of them are in school. When I was young Spring Break ment sleeping in and running around outside. Now it seems like road trips and Disney Land. Well that is what I thought but I don't think its as true.
Here are some ideas we are thinking of this week:
Movie Theater - It offers discounted admissions on Tuesday to everyone, Thursday for students and one of the insurance agencies American Family has a special movie for $3 or free with their discount page.
Grout Museum - $1 to each one to get it in or a discount of $60 for a year membership which is ASTC reciprocating program of 350 museums in 20 countries. We have gone to Shed Aquarium and Field Museum in Chicago with that and the COSI in Ohio.
Projects - Our neighbor gave us a dresser and we are going to convert it to a shelf for the girls for their bedding and towels.
Books - we enjoy reading and Anna is the co captain of the Battle of the Books so there are a few she needs to finish before the end of the week.
Homework - Anna has Math and Lilly gets to work on her Journal which consists of glued in stuff and glitter maybe. Also practicing her letters.

I got miffed that I didn't get the door to close but yes I did finish it. Ever work so hard on something and then just kind of give up in the last step?
Turns out it doesn't matter the door doesn't close perfectly.
It won't, too many Legos in there along with dreams, friends and neighborhoods.
The bottom doors close fine. They hide Lilly's treasured jewelry she got from Aunt Fran and our Cousins Betsy and Kathy.

Ryan's company was sold in October and he maybe laid off.
This isn't a normal pack your box and leave thing.
The new company can't really evaluate him until January 1st.
They can make a decision around February 1st and if he is laid off it starts April first.
When we lived in Pennsylvania; that layoff he was told Valentines day his last day was in April.
In Detroit's layoff was a "here is your box, put your life in it."
This layoff gives closure if we knew he was not to work there, but we have no idea, life is in the air and it may not even be a layoff just a change of company.
What we do know is that God has given us peace. Crazy, un-understandable peace. We are not selling off everything except the kids. We are at peace, I can't describe it. I should be packing and worrying. But here I am knowing that God has this, He got us though India and though a broken leg.
There will be pain and confusion but really, I have no control. I had no control. I trust someone who knows it all; versus me who thinks life should fit in a box.
Think out of the box and your mind will be blown away.

You can see below the cut almost all the way though. This is where I tell you don't touch the shank. IT IS HOT. You will melt your fingerprint. I know.
