For Your Weekend


It’s Spring Break! My husband and I both get next week off because we teach college, and my kids will be off, too. We are in full vacation mode already! We’re looking forward to catching up on yard work and other “life stuff,” trying some new restaurants, and getting out for a day trip or two. Plus, the weather here is so nice right now that I want to spend all day, every day outside.

Happy weekend to you! Here are this week’s links for your weekend reading:

    LOL @if toddlers had Facebook. Very jealous of your week off next week. This weekend will be the calm before the storm next week. Not looking forward to it at all, but at least it’s the weekend 🙂

      Good luck next week! I had a crazy one myself last week and therefore really need a little time off 🙂

    I’d definitely love to take my daughter traveling for a year! My husband and I have talked about potentially doing this when our little one is in late elementary school, which is still a few years down the road. I think it would be such an incredible memory for all of us!

    • Jenna says:

      I agree, and I have thought the same thing. Because my husband and I are both English teachers, we can go to (some) other countries and teach English for a while, and we’ve thought about doing that in Brazil, Japan, and some other places. But now that my older son is in 3rd grade, I see how important his friends are to his happiness, and I can’t imagine taking him away from them for a year. We try to do as much traveling throughout the year as we can, but we’ll see as they get older if we can work out something more permanent!
