I decided to take March Break off this year. With three children and only two adults to take care of them, Derek and I have to split the time off. Given that I had just returned to work in October, he took Christmas off. I saved the vacation time for March Break.
I had some plans but we all know how plans go... mine at least. By the end of day one I was pretty much overwhelmed by it all. The weather was miserable and cold so we spent a lot of time inside.
I planned to do a photo documentation of the week but only got through the first day, and even then not entirely.
But, for what it's worth, this was how our Day 1 went:
First things first, dishes. Always dishes. No matter how many times we run the dishwasher the evening before, there always seems to be a load first thing in the morning, too. As much as I lament to amount of space all the plastic dishes take up in our cabinets, I will miss it and can't deny that it makes for a pretty load of wash.
Ingrid and Elodie took turns playing doctor to a very patient patient, Danica (who looks like a doll in the picture below.)
I decided shopping with three small children would be a good idea. I am often wrong.

Off we go!
We shopped. For rain gear, ccokies and other stuff.
And then people got tired, cranky, hungry and generally onerous so we had to go home.
