Spring Break.....

One week of freedom
as school is now done.
It’s time for us all
to have lots of fun!

We head to the beach
in just a few days
to enjoy surf and sun
while we play, play, play, play!

But today we are home
so what do we do?
Oh, trust me, my days
are much like a zoo.

Dad is off serving
the U. S. of A.
I’m on my own
to survive this long day.

As the sun starts to dawn,
I hear four little feet.
We’re hungry, Mom.
Please can we eat?

Add Alex to the mix
as soccer is calling.
A game must be played
with lots of footballing.

Pass him off to a friend
who goes in my place.
Too hard to keep little ones
contained in one space.

Instead, to the high school
we surely did go
to watch Catlan pitch….
What a great show!

One hundred ten pitches
and seven innings end
the game in the win column
with cheers from the girlfriend!

To the Golden Arches we go
since hunger did call.
Eat your food in the car, girls
and don’t let it fall!!

Soon Alex arrives
at our meeting place
Got out of the car
with a smile on his face

A win for his team
first place, they are now.
What was his lunch?
I’m sure you’ll say wow.

Iced coffee and three donuts
Were all the boy had
‘til he ate the girls french fries...
His lunch sure was bad!

Home again, home again
jiggity jog.
Time for some errands.
No time to blog.

As dinner approaches
hungry cries reign.
Please stop, I cry loudly
or I’ll go insane!

The beach is beckoning.
Can’t tell it no!
The weather’s not ideal.
But we will still go.

Stay tuned for pictures
of our time in the sun
Sand, waves, and cousins…
It sure will be fun!

I'm not sure I'll be able to talk to you any longer since you're going to the BEACH while I'm expecting SNOW tomorrow.
