Not what we expected.

This spring break totally did not turn out as we expected. You see, we were supposed to go back to Washington DC BUT at the very last minute we had to cancel. AWWwwwww. Yes we were disappointed but we will try again next year. (And maybe I will be in a bit better shape although that's what I thought this year too. Oh well.) Well, we had to do something! So it was decided to take any of the youth that wanted to go to Sonshine Mountain Retreat Center. It was so very relaxing and to my surprise, even the teens seemed to relax and put down their phones. There was volleyball, fishing, swimming in the freezing cold water (no not me), hot dog roasting, board games, movie watching, sleeping in and staying up late and most importantly worshiping Jesus.

My date for the night

Isaiah told me a couple of days ago that me and him were going to go on a "date". Ok I said. He said it would be just me and him, not Mama or Daddy, just us. And that we would get Lunchables. This he said with a lot of excitement. Lunchables. You just never know what gets a three-year old excited. Well, we went on our "date". We ate at McDonald's which is where he wanted to eat dinner. He met some friends there. Then he informed me that we should get a toy when we went to Wal-Mart to get the Lunchables. So off we go to do just that. After we get the toy and candy, Isaiah was not interested in the exciting Lunchables so.....we didn't get them. Then that little sweetie spent the night with us. I love having all my kiddos with me but I also love having them one on one.
