Spring Break 2009

Spring break was finally here.

It is not spring in Iowa any more, LOL, we are supposed to get 4-6 inches of snow on Saturday.
The kids and I have had a blast on spring break.

Monday we cleaned the house and got our activities planned for the week.

Tuesday we went to the Grout Imaginariam Museum in Waterloo, Iowa. It was so much fun. The kids had a blast. I got video and pictures of it.




We then went to Kalona on Wednesday morning. They saw the Amish. We went to the cheese factory and tried some cheese. We then went on to Williamsburg. We went to the Wasserban Hotel and spent the afternoon and night playing in the huge pool and water slides. The kids loved every minute of it. We had a huge supper at the hotel. The kids ate free, that was really nice. We then went swimming some more. We came back to the room and collapsed. Then we went to breakfast in the morning and swam till 10:45. Then we checked out of our room. We drove home and collapsed.




Courtney went with her Big sister to see a movie. She said it was good and they had fun.




Friday was friend day. Courtney went to Sidney's grandparent's house for the day to play. They colored eggs and went for walks. Caleb and Colton had a friend Nickolas over. They went to the movies. They said they had a great time. The boys spent the rest of the afternoon playing video games.

Well I have lots to write about :)

Well I have been munching on Girl Scout Cookies. UGGG there goes all the weight I have lost and the 9 miles I ran last week. My dad and mom both commented that I looked really good.

Tommy and Tyler came over again this weekend. We made a video and just hung out for a while.

We went to Carrie's surprise 30th birthday party. We had a good time.

I am going to try to add some pictures. I always say that and then it never gets done.

I think Courtney is starting to get migraines. I hope they are not as bad as mine. She had a headache tonight. She looked miserable. She didn't have a fever. So I don't know.

I was watching a TV show with Robin Gibbons on it. She was talking about domestic violence. It reminds me so much of my relationship with Dan. The things he said was the same thing that Dan said. It was terrible to see this. I feel for those women who are in those relationships. It is a terrible place to be in. I pray for those women. I pray that they have the strength to leave.

Caleb's Concert

Last night his concert lasted from 6:30 till 9 and then it took him 20 minutes to get the base out to the car. It is so much bigger than him. I helped him carry it out. Poor kid couldn't do it by himself.

Next weeks is spring break! Yea! We are going to go to Wasserban. It is a hotel with an indoor pool and water slides. The kids are looking forward to it. We are going to stop in Kalona. We will have lots of fun. I want to go take some pictures. I am charging batteries so I can take lots of pictures and videos.

Caleb's Concert

Another Concert

Well Caleb has an orchestra concert tonight. So we are off to another program. I have been to so many lately. We still have the Drama in April. I love watching them. It is just been crazy with all of the running.

I went to bed with a headache. I woke up with a headache. I had such a bad headache that I was dreaming that someone was pounding on my head. It was awful. I kept telling them to stop because I had a headache.

Caleb and Colton went to Peis for lunch with school. The loved it but they love Chinese food. They said it was fun. Little do they know Krista and I went there for lunch too. :)

I went to Goodwill today. I hunted around for some good finds but didn't really see anything I needed.

I kind of want a light rain jacket.

I took Annabell (mom's dog) for a 3 mile run yesterday. It was nice to have someone to go with. She wanted to keep chasing the geese and squirels.

Running

Well I have been putting in 2 to 3 miles every other day for the last few weeks. It has felt great to get outside to run. I took the kids to the park yesterday while I ran they played on the equipment. The park had a trail around it. The kids had a blast and I got some good exercise. I guess they did too. They were tired and passed out after supper.

Cleaning out

Today I spent the day cleaning out closets. I got rid of lots of the kids clothes. Things they have outgrown or started to outgrow and will not be able to wear next winter. I went through my closet too. I got rid of 2 garbage bags out of my closet.

We watched Fireproof tonight. That is a great movie. I really enjoyed it. I am going to get "The Dare to Love" books that go with it. I think I am going to send it to Harmand too.

We rented movies at the Redbox again. They have a free code every Monday and Wednesday.
