Darin’s been on Spring Break all week, and we’ve had a great time.
However, there aren’t many pictures to show for it. The camera went everywhere we did, but it forgot to come out of my purse, silly camera!
First we had BIG BOY DAY!
Luke said good bye to his binkies and got to have some big boy fun.
He played at the mall play place, visited Build-A-Bear (a new puppy joined the flanks in his bed) and Chuck E. Cheese’s (loves playing all the games even though he can’t do them all), got a drink with ice and a straw (such a big boy thing), played golf with his outside clubs in the backyard (favorite activity and yes he hits those balls quite far!), and made homemade pretzels (unfortunately they didn’t turn out right).
With all the fun, he missed his nap, and we were worried about bedtime. After we reminded him that he gave his binkies away, he went to bed just fine.
WHY didn’t we do this a year ago?!
P.S. He is also potty training and doing quite well. Especially considering we went somewhere everyday (he even went potty at TSU) !
I can’t believe how grownup he is getting.
We also went to quite a few consignment sales, and Luke finally owns his own LEGITIMATE (pulling the back massager around by the string when he was younger doesn’t really count) pull toy (he loves to play with any pull toy he sees, yet we never got him one) !
Well, I bet you thought this post was gonna be more about Darin and his time off from school and work, but in the end, it all comes back to the kids! We LOVED having him home, helping with everything, and playing without being distracted by the many things he “should be” doing. We are sad it is coming to an end, yet happy he is almost done with this semester and thus almost done with all that “classwork” stuff! We don’t yet know for sure about his internships approaching, but we are working on them and are looking forward to them!
