The Spring season is upon us here. More people are emerging from their homes each day to enjoy the fresh air and get outside. Our boys had a week off from school recently for Spring Break. We kept this year’s plans again low key since we’re not all vaccinated yet.
As I’m wont to do, I made a list. I asked the boys what they wanted to do over break, and they helped me craft the to-dos. Thankfully, the kids are easy to please. They added activities like rollerblading, egging a few friends, and playing soccer. Whereas, I added to mulch the front yard and plant a garden.
Having an idea of what to do helped on those afternoons where the boys just wanted to play video games all day.
I’d say, “Hey, want to dye Easter eggs?” Boom! Video games were temporarily forgotten.
Of course, we deviated from the list too. We started the process of getting passports for the family and binged several of the Marvel movies. All in all, it was a quiet and relaxing week with the family that everyone enjoyed without the need to travel anywhere.
We spontaneously decided to fish one day.
As much as I liked it, I hope to be traveling for Spring Break next year.
