The number one rule to survive Spring Break is to start out at a nice slow pace.
4:30- School Carnival Begins
5:00- Son's musical
5:20- Mom sits in at Son's classroom booth/Dad waits in long line for younger son to ride a pony
6:00- Mom realizes that person who is suppose to take over her spot at carnival is not there, hurries to find teacher and apologize that she must leave to hurry daughter off to her dance recital.
6:15- Mom hurries and fix daughter's hair which must be worn in two low pony-tails, for dance recital. / Daughter throws a fit that someone is brushing her hair. All while driving to the school where recital is being held.
6:30- Arrive at school. Rush from parking lot to school multi-purpose room. Although early, still not early enough for good seats. However, the very last row does allow for children to stand on chairs in order to see the stage.
7:00- Performance begins
7:15- Older daughter dances wonderfully, younger daughter discovers boots worn by older daughter to protect her ballet shoes. Performs her own little dance.
7:20- Younger daughter steals doll prop used for one of the performances, sneaks out to playground with new found treasure.
7:25 Costume change, daisies put in the pony-tails that caused such a problem earlier.
8:00- Performance over, family packed in car, family debate on ordering pizza or stopping at Fry's for TV dinners (it is spring break after all, you've got to live it up).
8:15- Dad returns to car with grocery bags. Lack of milk swaying the vote in favor of Fry's over Pizza Hut.
8:25- Dad and older son leave to go help out one of Dad's home teaching families.
8:35- Kids eat TV dinners on a picnic blanket in front of TV watching the 1st season of The Cosby Show.
9:15- Mom and Dad eat, carry sleeping kids off to bed, so glad it's Spring Break!
