Spring Fever

Tuesday, May 10, 2011


My girls have spring fever.  Badly.  So I decided to set a fun breakfast table, wake them up early, and serve warm oatmeal and fruit.  I always cook my girls a hot breakfast, but we are sometimes rushed in the morning, and they don't have time to finish eating.



I want them to get with the program and keep their eye on the prize.  It ain't quittin' time at Tara yet.  They still have a couple of more weeks left at school, and big sis has five AP exams.


Do you have Spring Fever?

Until next time...

    Dev's got all her ap exams this week as well- and once they are done til June 8th- absolutely nothing left to do in any of her classes except 1. Ah well, they make them go so they get funding. She will maybe have a chance to catch up on her sleep. LOL
