March Break 2017 Re-Cap

March Break has come and gone and the kids have settled back into the school routine.  The week off went by quite quickly. Mr. K built a fort in our living room when he got home from school the Friday prior to the break.  He slept in it every night. We played many, many board games; read books and coloured pictures in it.

Mr. J wanted to go to a new bakery that was opened by one of his karate instructors, so we did that on the Monday after a trip to the library.  Tuesday we went for lunch with my mom, my brother and one of my nieces. Mr. J wanted to make a cake, so we did that when we got home. Wednesday was a lazy day at home. Lots of tv, youtube and board games.  Thursday we went to see Lego Batman at the movie theater. Mr. K wanted to make muffins, so we did that in the afternoon. Friday we went to Little Rays Reptile Zoo with a stop at Tim Hortons for lunch.

The kids each got to do something they wanted and we had a lot of fun together.  Of course, there were moments of rage between the two of them. There were a few times I regretted not signing them up for a camp, but we made it through unscathed.

March Break Is Just Around The Corner

Here in Ottawa, next week is March break for the local school boards.  I love spending time with my kids, and am fortunate enough that I am home to do it. However, they don't like spending time together, and that creates issues.

This year on March break, there isn't a lot of time for them to be separated - Mr. K has an appointment one afternoon, so Mr. J will spend it with my mom. Hubby told me last night he will be working ridiculously long days all week, which means I won't have him for a sanity break in the evenings :(

I am hoping to get to a movie with the kids (Mr. K really wanted to see Monster Trucks, but we didn't get there during it's run.....it's back in for next week), and maybe take them bowling.  Our local mall has something free running as well, so we may stop by there at some point.

What will you be doing to keep your kids busy over the break?

The Missing Keys

Tuesday morning, I was rushing to get the kids out the door and off to school. I was volunteering for the Shrove Tuesday pancake breakfast, and needed to be there before school started. The kids had their backpacks, coats and were ready to go. I grabbed my purse, coat and went to get my keys from my coat - but they weren't there. They weren't in my purse, I checked my pants pocket from the day before and came up empty. I rushed around for a few minutes, but then knew we were going to be late so grabbed my spare.
