Spring Break and A Blogging Break

Good Morning!

This week the girls have spring break so I'll be taking a mini vacation from my blog to spend some time with them.  Later in the week we will be having an extended weekend at Grandma and Grandpa's cabin which I am very excited about.

While were gone this is one of the daily moments I'll be missing that I always find so adorable.

Every morning, Shelby will sit on this red chair in the kitchen and watch my youngest daughter and my niece walk across the street to their bus stop.

She'll sit there patiently waiting until the bus arrives, just to make sure the girls get on the bus ok.

In the afternoons, Shelby will once again take her spot on the chair to wait for the bus to arrive again.

Once spotted, this peaceful scene is replaced with the loud chaos of delighted yelps, puppy paws scrambling on linoleum in a mad dash for the front door, more yelping and jumping until finally . . . finally the front door opens and her girls are home.

It's replayed daily, and I'm sure I'll miss it terribly while I'm away.

Soon enough, spring break will be over and then Shelby and I can get make on schedule.

Talk to you next week.
