One of the things I enjoy most about our school district is the calendar year. They have what they call “modified year-round” school. The kids still get a summer break, but it’s shorter than most & they get extra time off in the Fall and Spring. It is amazing for us in AZ, because the times you want to be out and about are not in the summer!
The other huge bonus is that extra times means that we can travel and enjoy without having to fit it all in a week…
This year, we are doing something more than normal, too! Rather than go through it all, I will try to blog as we go (key word= try).
Anyhow, we started our trip yesterday and it was a full day of travel. We literally were on the go the whole day… We left the house @ 6:45 in the morning and got the kids in bed @ 1:00 this morning—thankfully there is a time difference in there. It was a long day. But, we have good travelers and it gets easier each year.
Today, the kids slept in and we just ran out to the store to pick up food…
And then we hit the pool.
Right now we are waiting on the family… We are in FL, so we get to spend time with Nana, Papa & most of the cousins & they will get to see most of their Aunts & Uncles, too!
We will be quite the crew!
