Lazy Spring Break Schedule

We are on our lazy Spring Break schedule right now. Pajama's are worn until mid morning, leisurely showers are taken, breakfast involving eggs are made, and the noise level is much louder during the afternoon hours.

We are trying to balance this Spring Break with some large activities mixed in with lazy days around the house. Today is one of those lazy days. The boys woke up at their normal time and got me involved in their day quickly. Nudges to turn on the TV, make breakfast, and requests to play the iPad were given before my eyes were even cracked open. The warm covers beckoned me to stay but cold fingers pulled me from my cozy haven. The cat opened one eye in indignation as I slid my leg from under the sleeping bundle. Time to start the day.

As I groggily made my way down the stairs, I stopped to eavesdrop on the boys conversation. Transformer cars slid across the wood floor while balls rolled from one corner to the next. Orders were given by my oldest son and quickly ignored by my youngest. Squeals of delight were followed by plastic smashing against plastic. I continued my way down the steps and heard T tell J that he loved him and that they would be best friends forever. My heart just melted and I was again reminded of how blessed I am. Today is going to be a great lazy day!

  1. Oh, what memories. You are going to be so blessed by the blogging too! Wish I'd had done this when mine were young! The sounds of plastic smashing into plastic resonates and brings me back to my son's childhood! Thank you, thank you! Surely and purely blessed!

  3. You have such a gift with descriptive phrases! My favorites: before my eyes were even cracked open, warm covers beckoned, and my heart just melted. What a fun way to start a day!

  6. It's a very nice moment to savor, & record, which you did so well. I like that you leisurely moved your way through the early moment, taking your lazy day quite seriously by paying attention to every single sweet moment. Lovely!
