Spring Break arrived and just like everyone else our break did not turn out like we had planned. The girls and I were supposed to take a soccer trip to Italy while the boys were going to stay home and have a "dude week" going to sport games, Six Flags, zip-lining, etc. The ten day Italy trip had been planned for over a year-and-a-half so we were really looking forward to it. The girls were going to train and play some friendlies against local teams and of course sight seeing was on the schedule too. The trip has been postponed until December 2020 (leaving on the 25th) so we still get to go, which is nice, but it stinks we have to wait longer. Now that the trip is postponed we may be able to work out having the boys go with us too. Side note: I am still waiting to hear if I will get a refund for my flights or if they will give me a voucher. I can't seem to get solid info, but it look like I might be getting a travel voucher.
Spring break week was spent at home "sheltering in place", but we ended up having a really fun week together. I may be in the minority, but I am LOVING having Bryan and the kids home all the time. I am definitely not the home school mom type, but I can get on board with the digital learning for sure although having the week off for spring break was really nice. The one thing I am missing hard core is watching the kids play soccer and hanging with all my soccer friends. I miss all of it!
Over Spring Break Staycation we played several rounds of Frisbee Golf. What is Frisbee Golf? It's just like golf, but with a Frisbee instead of a ball. Each game we played 9 holes and everyone took turns picking the start and finish of each "hole". I bought this game for Santa on a whim for like $7.00 and it has turned out to be the best purchase! Super fun game.

The basket is the "hole".
Guess which kid was happy about taking a sibling photo?!
Up and over the car was the best option!
We kept a running tab of the winner. First game winner was Bryan.
Everyone is holding up their placement.
When you are "sheltering in place" there is nothing but family time on the menu. Each morning we did a family stretch. We went on walks. We watched movies. We ate every meal together. I cooked a lot. We worked out. We played games. We were lazy. We annoyed each other. We went on bike rides. We had some home improvements done (this gets its own post). We played darts. And the kids still had virtual soccer workouts, which they did in the front yard or the basement.
The tail end of spring break we celebrated Easter. It was really odd knowing we wouldn't get to spent Easter with our family. On Saturday of Easter weekend we had amazing weather so we decided to make a few strawberry cakes for the family since we wouldn't be with them on Sunday. We drove around and dropped off cakes while keeping our distance from everyone. I only remembered to take photos of the kids with Honey and Papa.
On Easter morning the kids enjoyed their baskets and we also enjoyed church online. I spent most of the day in the kitchen preparing our Easter feast. We grilled salmon and had 5 different sides. I let everyone pick what side they wanted and of course nobody picked the same item. The rain started right about the time Bryan heated up the grill for the salmon. Go figure! Easter wasn't our usual, but we ended up having a really lovely day together.
