About 2 months ago Justin informed me that he would be going to N. Carolina for a huge study convention at Duke to help him get ready for his boards. It was going to be a week long and in March. My heart sank as I asked him...when in March? Yep...it was the same week our kids had spring break, we were planning on doing something fun... SUCK! We were both miserable about it being that same week but that's why this blog is titled what it is...Life of a Resident Wife. Justin has been studying like crazy and super stressed about the whole thing so I knew going to this review would be good for him. So off he went and here we stayed. I tried hard to make it a fun week for the boys and we planned to do something every day. I think I succeeded when my boys told me it was the best week. We did not even do that much but I did try hard to actually play with my boys every day...not just have them watch TV while I do projects and clean. We all had lots of game time, movie nights, and eating out. I think I have finally mastered going out with all 4 boys by my self and not going crazy. Well...all except going to the grocery store. What is it about going to a grocery store with 4 kids that makes me want to put them in a box out side of the store and sell them like puppies?
Never the less...here are a few pics from our spring break week:
Ice cream at Sweet Frogs. Jace is showing his true love of ice cream well in this pic.
Was is it about little boys in whitey tighty's that just makes any one smile.
Ryland-all ready to go to church!
Me and Carter that the park.
Ross Perot Museum. Despite the insane crowd that was there, my boys did amazing! We love this place!
Half way through though Carter kept telling me he was cold. He had a horrid fever by the time we left the museum.
And I did manage to get one project done during spring break. Justin has been wanting me to build this bench to go on the end of our bed. I just need to finish painting the out side.
