It’s hard to believe that Christmas and New Year’s are over…I have had such a fun time staying at home with my family. I’ve been off of work since December 19th and my husband has been home since December 23rd. Tomorrow, we both go back to work and the kiddos go to the baby-sitter’s…back to our ( as normal as possible-see below) routines. It’s going to be hard since I’ve been with them for over two weeks. With that said, I’m sharing a few of our fun memories/activities from our holiday.
Building train tracks at Grammy and Grandaddy’s.
Playing outside with sticks.
Playing at the library and finding all sorts of new books to read.
More playing outside.
We’ve greatly enjoyed our time together and have loved not being on a specific routine. We were able to sleep in most days, play all morning in our jammies, and not be on a set schedule. How many more days until summer?! Ha!
On a more serious note, we will be facing some difficulties and changes to our child care routine. Our babysitter’s husband recently found out he has cancer and they left yesterday for five+ weeks at Duke for treatments. Typing this makes me break down and cry…our babysitter and her husband are like our children’s grandparents, and they love our kids as though they are their own grandchildren. We’re going to piece together babysitting with a lady who helps our current babysitter, and we have several back-up people who are able to watch our children as well. It’s going to be a difficult road, but I’m praying that we will all get through it and that he can beat cancer.
