Spring Break!

This is spring break at our house!!! Woohoo!!!

We are all excited about doing......

not a whole lot of anything!
~It will be some blessed downtime!

I'm looking forward to doing some deep cleaning and reorganizing which I don't have much time to do normally. I also need to catch up on some grading for my high school kiddo and spend some time planning out the rest of his school year.

Other than that we'll just be hanging out.

Except for one event which is one of our favorite things that we do every year...
Go strawberry picking! This post reminded me that 30 quarts is a little too much.
(But I had two extra pickers last year, since our nephews from CA spent spring break with us. And then one of them got an actual break : (
and that was a little bit too much excitement for this aunt.LOL)

I can't wait to have a fridge and freezer full of strawberries! It's so much fun. ~Next week I'll have to post some strawberry recipes and ask for your favorites.

We will also be playing lots of this!
Which is new at our house and a blast!!! (maybe I'll get some much needed dancing skillz!) : )

I love strawberries. I wish I could be there with all of you. Pick and eat some for our family while you are there. And enjoy your break

Enjoy your Spring Break, and try to catch up on some sleep! Today was the first day back to school from Spring Break. Everyone is dragging tonight. (My kids are in the public schools). Today was the first day they could wear shorts, and of course, I was asked. I gave a big "NO!" If it's cold enough to snow and wear winter clothes, they won't be wearing shorts. Of course I saw kids who did wear shorts today at the school, just because they could! Anyway, enjoy your break! Blessings! ~Sharon~

Huh? It's time for strawberry picking already? Well why didn't someone tell me? ;) Actually, it would be a bit early here for that. But the hanging out and doing nothing, now that I can do with you. ;)

I am always so glad when strawberry/cantaloupe season comes. I can tell when the prices are right that is time to start eating those for breakfast instead of grapefruit. Our breakfast has its seasons.

Have fun and I am looking forward to those recipes.
