The snow has melted, the windows are open, the sun coming through the windows shining in on our faces. I’m so happy. As I was driving M to school this morning, we got to see such a beautiful sun rise. It was neat getting to talk to M about this.
With the sun finally returning here in the good ole high country, it has me thinking about Spring Break. I don’t believe we will go out of state this year, but we are planning a StayCation. We are fortunate to live in a resort area, with so many opportunities that we are going to take advantage of. Also, we will go on multiple picnics, do bbq’s with family and friends, explore the hiking trails and even get in a canoe or two.
We love to be outdoors and appreciate our surroundings. I want to make it a fun week for the girls and a week they will think that we actually did go on vacation. So I have been busy planning and trying to make sure we do the right budgeting and find the right bargains.
With all the planning I have started doing for Spring Break, I have made a decision for Summer Break as well… to have every Friday as Field Trip Friday. Each Friday, we will do a special trip such as a museum, gem mining, a new park, etc and the following Monday we will do a scrapbook page of our trip. By the end of the summer the girls will have a scrapbook for Summer 09 that they can cherish for years.
What are you and your little ones doing for Spring Break? Share your ideas below and let’s kiss Winter good bye for 09!
Sometimes a stay at home vacation is the best kind. We really enjoyed that kind of vacation last summer. 🙂
Field trip friday sounds like a great idea!
