It's Almost May

I have returned from a trip to North Dakota. While I was there, I met my new nephew, Caeden. I know it is not possible to tell you on this blog how much I adore him. His lil' face and his lil' hands and all that is lil' about him are so sweet. He is six weeks old and I am counting the days until I am able to see him again.

While I was in ND, I had several family tell me that they noticed that I have not been updating the blog. It's true. April was a crazy month for me. Excuses, right? My trip to North Dakota came at the perfect time for me. It was right after parent-teacher conferences and a bunch of other stuff that is too boring to mention. However, I hope to be back to normal blogging schedule.

I have 24 days left of kindergarten. It doesn't matter that I love my job and enjoy every day, I still count the days because I can't help but look forward to the summer. Most people already know this, but we are spending two months in Iowa this summer. Tim is working on a research project and I will be...well...well...I have no idea, but I know it will be relaxing.

Not-So-Big Plans

Tim and I have decided on a "staycation" for our spring break. It is the first spring break that we haven't hosted visitors to our home. Although we always welcome guests, I am looking forward to ten days filled with sleeping in, lazy mornings, day trips and relaxation.

Spring break is on the list of perks for my job. I love the break and usually feel rejuvenated to tackle all that the rest of the year has to offer in kindergarten. And because I am a simple girl, I have a simple list of things to accomplish during my ten day hiatis from kindergarten.

  1. Buy an ice cream maker for my Kitchenaid mixer.
  2. Make ice cream with my new attachment to the Kitchenaid mixer.
  3. Buy a new tv stand for the new tv that Tim bought for us.
  4. Cook a nice dinner at least three times.
  5. Start to clean up our yard. It is in need of some spring cleaning.
Well, that is about it. If I can get all of that accomplished this week, it will be time well spent.
