Anyway, spring break started last Friday and runs through the end of this week. Ironically, Evan's spring break was last week, so they only overlapped by one day. We looked into going camping, but nothing is open this early in the season.
So here's our spring break line-up. Keep in mind that we are poor, so some of these activities may seem pathetic, but we haven't spent any money on entertainment since we moved here, so the kids are excited about it:
--Friday: Evan took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese (spent $2o in tokens)
--Monday: dentist appt for Mea, McDonalds Happy Meals and playing at the playplace (<$10)
--Tuesday: story time at the library, Kohl Children's Museum ($10 per kid)
--Wednesday: bowling ($5 per kid, unlimited games for 2 hours, moms free), family swim at the gym (free)
--Thursday: Butterfly museum (friend can get us in for free), Lincoln Park Zoo (free!)
--Friday: Lego store browsing (strong emphasis on the browsing part), playing at the treehouse in the mall (free)
Sometime this week, if Spencer keeps treating Waimea like he does his friends (that's our new measure of his behavior towards her), we'll let him have his friend from school come over (we've had a ban on friends over for a few weeks now. We're such horrible parents, I know).
Wish me luck. I think I need it.
