We leave for vacation in just four days.
Four days before we embark on the first leg of a long road trip with three kids. I am mostly excited but I would be lying if I didn’t say I have some trepidation about it, too.
My two oldest kids will be a piece of cake. I will load them up with snacks and and portable DVD player and they will be good to go. Lane, however, may be another story. He does fine in the car for errands but he has never been confined to his car seat for more than two hours at a time. Our first stop will be in Baton Rouge which is eight hours away from our house.(Pray for me!!) We will be staying the night at my best friends house and then driving the additional four hours to the beach that next day.
Even if Lane is a monster baby in the car, I just know it will be totally worth it when we reach our destination. Five glorious days at the beach. I am SO ready!
I will definitely be sharing our little beach vacation once we get back but until then, I thought it might be fun to throw in some recent photos of my life in the mix!
First day of school vs last day of school picture. They are moving on up in the world. Official 5th and 2nd graders are living in this house. Notice my daughter dressed head to toe in Justice clothing for both pictures. I won’t be sad when that clothing phase ends…..
Me trying to be cute with a baby and a laundry basket in the background. I’m not so sure I nailed it. Ha!! Y’all, I am no fashionista but sometimes I try to look cute. All I know is that it felt good to be in something other than workout clothes or pajamas that day. Life of a work at home mom!
This girl had her guitar recital last week. She nailed her solo and I was quite the proud, beaming mom
ma! I really hope it has encouraged her to “like” playing guitar again. Probably not though, especially since she just asked me, ” Do I haaaave to go guitar tomorrow?” Sigh.
I’m pretty darn proud of this boy, too! On the last week of school his teacher gave out Lifeskill awards to the first grade class. Liam received the “Leadership” award because according to his teacher, if Liam does it or says it, everyone else will do it or say it, too. This is when I crossed my fingers that his leadership skills are being used for GOOD.
