Spring Break

It's spring break!  This break always seems to come seconds before my "breaking point".  Who knows what happens every February and March.  The whole universe seems to start unraveling.  I suppose it's something to do with the ending of a long winter, the really really annoying daylight savings time thingy, the basic cellular need for some daytime exposuse to the outdoor elements.  Whatever it is ... I felt like a teenager when the bell rang after my Healthy Homes training on Friday afternoon.   We've pretty much been outside ever since.
we are trying to build a patio thingy where the grass is permanently deceased due to the huge swimming pool we have set up from June - August.   Lucy has rediscovered her love of bugs and promptly got enough gathered in a sled to have a rousing game of "house" with the bugs being her children.  They amused her all day. Totally grossed me out.

upon hearing that Gabriel was coming for a visit Lucy oddly started creating conversation clusters out of the living and dining room furniture.  In case we needed to have meetings.

and he came back!  Gabriel is learning and growing. Was fun having him and his momma for a visit.

and now we're off for a couple days. Heading north.  Gonna spend time at a waterpark and meet up with Sherry, Harper, Hana and Masresha.  Very exciting times.
