Spring Break

I'm having trouble with picture acquisition from Photos again, so I haven't blogged in a while. 

This week is Spring Break, and we're actually taking a break at the same time that the public schools are taking a break. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Places are crowded. Sometimes there's a special (like at the skating rink - $3 this Tuesday), but sometimes they cancel their normal specials (like at Laser Legend $5 Sunday Sunday becomes regular $8 because of spring break). And you would think the neighborhood would be hopping, but all the families are gone on vacation, so my kids are schlumping around the house trying to find things to do. Usually there's always someone knocking on the door. Anyway..... we're figuring out Spring Break. 

This was from several weeks ago when we went to the Witte Museum. I didn't realize the museums in town have free evenings at least monthly if not weekly. This museum had four floors of interactive Body Adventure displays. One of the most enjoyed displays had the kids sit on opposite ends of a table with wired head bands on their foreheads. The one with the most relaxed mind would move a ball toward the opposite person. Jonathan won that game most often. 

From the Star Wars brunch.

This was Monday of Spring Break. Elizabeth made a boat (her fourth) out of milk jugs this time. It floated very well, higher up out of the water. She does want to add another row of milk jugs to make it more stable and add sitting room. We went to Boerne City Lake to try this out and it was a huge hit. You can swim, rent paddle boards and such, there were lots of shade trees. It did cost $10 for parking and it's 45 minutes away, but I think it would be worth it if you planned to spend some time there. Have a picnic lunch or something. 

Tuesday we went skating with some neighbors (pictures were all blurry). Wednesday we had dentist appointments (no cavities this time! Hurray!). Today we went with another neighbor to get $1 pancakes from I HOP for St. Patricks Day (we all had to wear green, which meant pajamas for Harrison since his clothing is oddly remiss of the color green). The kids will need to come up with their own entertainment the rest of the week. Boredom can lead to projects. Let's see what they come up with.
