Time for a break!

Nothing like the feeling of knowing you have no school responsibilities for the next week! I made it. It is Spring Break, finally!
For the next week I have a few things on my agenda, HAVING FUN and  making memories with my family. Time to play and enjoy each other.
We are heading to the magical world of Disney!
I am giddy about this trip.
My husband has never been and I am looking forward to experiencing the magic with  him. He really has no idea how awesome it is; I know that he will love it.
We are surprising our 3 sons with this trip. They were disappointed we were not heading to the beach, usually we go to Hilton Head with their grandparents. They have no idea how fabulous this trip is going to be. They are all at the age that they can appreciate it.
I have not been since 1985, so I am really looking forward to reliving the excitement.
We have warned/promised the kids that we plan to play and embarrass them. It is time to let loose and celebrate this wonderful life we have. We are lucky to be able to do this and I plan to have tons of fun.
Our sons think we are going to Ohio. We cannot wait to see/hear their reactions when they realize we are going to Florida.
My oldest is a worrier/anxious and he would have flooded us with a million detail questions. He would have worked himself up in to a mess, so we decided to save the details for when we were actually there. It is bugging him that I would not tell him anything beyond the letter of where we are headed. When I told him "O" he guessed Ohio since his Dad once lived there. I knew O was a safe letter, if I said D he would have guessed it. (Several times he has expressed the desire to go to Disney instead, it will be wonderful when he realizes his wish came true.) So we went with Ohio and let others in on the surprise. Everyone keeps telling him how awesome "Ohio" is.
So if you don't hear from me for the next week, you will understand why. I hope you have a great weekend and your week goes smoothly!
Happy days!
