Our schedules still pretty much follow the school calendar since Matt is still in school and we both substitute teach for the school district and my piano students have days off when they don’t have school. So we still get spring break. :)
We didn’t go on a fancy vacation but we had lots of fun anyway. We went to Cheyenne just to get a couple things and it was a very productive trip. Dean was crying in the car and Brennen said, “Cool it, Dean!” Compassionate… But then he and I sang Dean songs and it was better.
On Friday we went to the temple. We hadn’t been for a long time, it’s so much harder to go when you have kids! But I know we’re blessed to have a temple only about 2 hours away. So we just took the boys with us and took turns going in to the temple. It was a really good, spiritual day, even outside with the boys. Brennen started singing made up songs about how he loves the temple and then he sang the real “I Love to See the Temple” song. It was so cute! They loved the fountain. They were SO good in the car even though it took like 3 hours to get back because of traffic. We JUST missed the huge storm which was good!
On Saturday my parents and brother Kasey came and we celebrated Dean’s birthday a few days early (we’ll probably do another little “party” on his real birthday on Wednesday). It was really nice to see them. We went to the dinosaur museum here on campus then had cake and ice cream. Later that night we went out to eat and spent time playing and talking.
It was a nice little break and now we’re back to the grind! Matt goes back to class this week and is subbing today. I’ll start my full-time long-term sub assignment as soon as the jr. high choir teacher has her baby (any day now).
