My kids are on Spring Break this week, but they left us!

Caleb is in San Francisco this week with about 40 high school students and adult leaders partnering with First Baptist Church there on some mission projects.  They are serving at a local elementary school sprucing up the playground and doing some Spring Cleaning inside the school, visiting with homeless people in the area that the church ministers to, and generally just building relationships and serving in the community to share Jesus' love.

Emily is in Texas with another group of students and adults working at Mission Arlington for the week, spending their days in Vacation Bible School type settings at local apartment complexes and churches working with elementary age children during their Spring Break.

So.... Ray and I are on our own this week!  We're planning to do a few fun things later in the week, but for now he's working and I have big plans at home.  I desperately need to clean out every cabinet, closet, nook, and cranny!  I'm ready to be ruthless!  #hugegaragesalecoming Oh, and I need to finish up getting our taxes ready to send in.  Doesn't that sound like so. much. FUN????  #notreally

I've been drowning in "stuff" for a while that I need to stop and address, so I'm actually looking forward to these few days with some uninterrupted time to put my head down and just work.  So, this will be my only post for the week so I can put all of my time and efforts into one focused area.

On top of that, I also have a few projects to do this week in preparation for my Spring Home Tour that you'll get to see next week, so if someone could add a few more days to Spring Break, I'd appreciate it!  ;)
