Just Breathe

In 6 1/2 hours Spring Break will officially begin and we can all take a deep breath.  It's been a busy week, all fun, but busy.

The fun started on Sunday afternoon when Sharon and kids came down to go see Annie Jr at JJ.  The show was amazing, JJ has some talented kiddos.
The little girl who played Annie was perfect, Cooper gave  her a flower after the show.

Baseball started up Monday night. We had practices Monday and Tuesday, Tuesday we were there until 8.  Our coach said we would have practices every night.!  Luckily it's been cancelled for the past two nights.  My child will last about a week if I make him go every single night, he's 7, not 12.  

I was scheduled to run with Laura on Wednesday morning, she ended up having to work and since my mother in law was coming to watch Cameron I took advantage.  I did 9.3 miles by myself.  So glad I pushed myself, that is long a time to be alone with just your thoughts.
I worked a class party that afternoon at school, picked Cooper up, then rushed back home to get ready for The Lion King!
It was just as amazing as it was 8 years ago.  I would have loved to have taken Cooper but it's just so long, maybe next time... he could be 15 by then.  Crazy!

Cameron had his preschool Easter party on Thursday morning.  He was in it to win it on the egg hunt.

They colored, did crafts, colored eggs, and played games,  The usual stuff.

No Easter party is complete without a visit from the Easter Bunny.

After the party it was off to JJ for the 1st grade performance.
Let me preface this by saying that when I'm 80 years old I'm not going to remember what Cooper's 1st grade performance was like.  That being said, I couldn't see him at all.  Which is why I have no pictures.  It's not because if where I sat, it was where he was.  They used choral risers, each level had 2 rows, he was directly behind kids a head taller than he.  Couldn't even see the top of his head.  Looking at pictures on Facebook from other parents, couldn't see him on those either. He was little upset after the program saying that he could only see the heads in front of him and not the audience.  Like I said, is it a big deal, not really.  Just frustrating.  It would have just been nice to at least see him a little bit. But it's life and it happens.

I am ready for these next two weeks off, we have zero plans for the entire break.  We will just take it day by day.

I agree with you are the way they had the kids standing was horrible. They should have been facing us instead of the other classes. I had to go up close to get some good pictures before it started. Have a good Spring Break!!
