We’ve completed three weeks of our new school year, and this was a break week. Scheduling a break this early was not what I had wanted to do, but my husbands work shut down for this week so he had to use a week of vacation up. The good news is that this coincided with Lindsey's 10th birthday and Labor Day, so we were able to get a little extra bang for our buck.
For the actual day of the birthday festivities, we went to a local waterpark for the day, followed by dinner out.
On Saturday we had a family get together with the grandparents, aunts, uncles and assorted babies. I attempted to make a Minion cake…it’s not the best of decorations, but it was AMAZINGLY good, my best ever.
Monday (Labor Day) we went camping. Everyone else was leaving the camp ground when we were checking in (this was my goal, and it worked). We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves! You can read all about it by clicking here. I’ll share a few teaser photos.
Thursday we went walk-about at a local wetlands area. Unfortunately we haven’t had a lot of rain the last month or so, so the wetlands were a bit dry. We’ll go back later in the fall and note the changes that follow the season.
I enrolled the girls in an IEW-Ancient History writing course, and that started today (Friday). Thankfully the husband was off work to take them, as I’ll be gone all day with family medical issues (extended family). I’m excited to hear about their first day!
That’s about it for the week. Our little stay-cation has been busy, and tiring. This will be out last big break until Christmas.
