The bags are packed and we'll be heading up to see Sopes!! Not much of a "Spring Break" with the weather, but it works. The kids are so excited! Our youngest, Jayla, turns 7 tomorrow and will spend her birthday in her birth country. Kind of ironic, since she was singing patriotic American songs in her United States program at school yesterday. Sopes was getting a bit emotional this morning on the phone reminiscing about the kids. Yup, it does fly by - having the youngest turn 7 is crazy! I miss them all being babies, but will get my baby fix when we visit family in Syracuse later next week. My niece is 1 and I've only seen her a couple times. Wearing sweats, playing with kids, not leaving the house...HEAVEN!!
Paul will be staying back because of school and work. No worries, there's a crew of friends coming in to keep him company; and there's always the dog.
Myself, I'm most excited for sleep!! Last time I flew in my ass was snoring before room service came! Right now, that's romantic enough for me! It's hard when Sopes is gone because I have to be in "Mommy Mode" nonstop. Just knowing he's there puts my mind at ease. Props to Sopes!! He knew that I was completely stressed last week and delivered BIG! A crew from McCormick & Schmicks came to the house with a steak dinner along with sushi and desert. Not having to prepare a meal was amazing and the thought he put into it meant more than anything.
The kids have only seen one game this year, so that will be an adventure. Jake likes to watch the game and the girls just ask to go into the family room at the rink.
Life has been pretty hectic around here, but I will try to get Sopes to do a Friday blog tomorrow. There might be some crazy kids in the background, but life goes on...
