Spring Break on Business...

This is what you do if DadE is going to Michigan on business...MomE gets her spontaneous groove on and we all tag along.
It was *cold*...so we spent a lot of time in the pool and hot tub.
We met up with some work friends' family in the area for playtime...ate out a lot (a real treat for us)...slept on fresh sheets each night (yes, this is a thrill for MomE!)...watched lots of cartoons...charmed the hotel staff with hand drawn thank yous...
I have to say that the Holland, Michigan area is one of the most family friendly areas I have ever visited. Just wish it had been warm enough to brave the beach...but alas, it still has ice on most of it.

Making it Monday...

My Mom pointed out something to me that I'd never noticed before. I just thought my kids were driving me crazy by always wanting me to entertain them and craft with them...but she said that it was because I was such a creative Mom to begin with;  I'd sort of created my own monster. Hilarious!
But somehow...that helped me have a better attitude about them bugging me this week that they're on Spring Break. Although I need to set limits on how much I entertain them...and encourage them to use their own imaginations...I also can delight and enjoy crafting with them. God has given me two delightful gifts.
