In a brief break from the deluge of rain that we've had all weekend, the kids took about two dozen balls out to the trampoline and got some "fresh air and exercise". Traig wasn't invited to the club because he has better than perfect vision, so therefore does not wear glasses. No, not really - of course he was invited, but sadly, the poor guy has had the stomach bug with all its nasty side effects today. Something tells me his spring break will be extended for all the wrong reasons tomorrow.
We've had a good time with all of the kids - we took them to Papa's Pizza yesterday and settled in for a while. John and I took our computers and set ourselves up next to a tv to watch if Butler and Arizona would advance to the Final Four (Yeah for Butler, bummer for Arizona), while the kids had a heyday in the indoor play area. Eventually Lisa joined us, in an attempt to keep her kids entertained in this long spring break in which she's a "tax widow" - having an accountant as her hubby.
We also spent a little bit of time at Lenscrafters yesterday, picking out Mikayla's new spectacles - as well as a new pair for Brayden (as he's still wearing his original pair given to him in first grade). Between John and the retail manager, Kyle, pressuring me with a total hard sell, I ended up purchasing some pretty fancy prescription sunglasses as well. The bad news is that they won't be ready for a couple of weeks, but the good news is they probably won't be necessary until at least that time anyway. Although, I'd hardly call that good news!
My kiddos actually have Monday off as well (I love how our district gives us that extra day after the two long vacations...it makes the transition so much easier). Mikayla and I have an appointment at Bello for a pedicure - thanks to "LivingSocial" we got one of our pedicures for free and the other one for 60% off. It was one of her Christmas presents that we are finally cashing in.
