Michael took the week off to be home with the kids during Spring Break. We didn't go anywhere, but we spent some great family time together! We are usually together all the time but this past week was nice because we didn't have to be anywhere! We stayed up late, slept in, ate out, ran errands, played Wii, and just enjoyed our days. I love when Michael is off because that means I'm off....he made breakfast (french toast, pancakes, crepes), he took us out to eat, and cleaned up the kitchen after cooking. I have to brag....he is a keeper!
We signed Brett and Sean up to play indoor soccer too! Sean was ready, but I had to bribe Brett with a Webkinz. They will play on the same team (U5/U6) this season. I can't wait to see them play! Just watching them in the backyard has been fun. We bought new shoes, shin guards and soccer balls for them. They put on Brandon's old jersey's and shorts everyday!
Kaila took on a few pet sitting jobs over Spring Break. I was very impressed with her. She had to get up every morning to let dogs out at 7 AM (she did this all on her own even when we didn't go to bed until 2 AM.)
Brandon got a break from soccer so he enjoyed running around the neighborhood with his friends or sleeping over at friends when he knew we didn't have anything exciting planned.
Brett has been asking Michael to go fishing for a year now. I'm not sure why he wanted to but we finally dug out fishing rods from Gramps' attic and took all of them. We didn't catch any fish, but they all had fun casting and reeling. I enjoyed sitting and watching. The weather was beautiful that day!
