Busy Week on The Backroad

Are you ready for your busy week? Busy weeks are all that are to be had around here, for sure. Ours began this morning when our whole family participated in a pancake fundraiser for the Community Theatre, followed by the usual list of chores necessary to keep us going all week.

This week we have work, school lessons, guitar lessons, Lego club, teaching, dentist appointments on two different days, and a doctor's appoint on another. Auditions for the upcoming production (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, I am directing and the kids are participating) are Saturday...which begins the busy-ness of rehearsal season.

But...I am not complaining. We are living the life. It's easy to become wrapped up in the must-do moments and overlook the fact that we are reveling in the best days of our lives. All I have to do is look at my daughter, who will be a teenager in one month. These are the moments that will sustain us and they are flying by...quickly.

So we make a point to build in time in our schedule for each other...
Breakfast before lessons
Family Dinner at 6pm
A walk in the dark
A visit to the humane society to play with the cats
and a few special activitiess here and there.

This week we will head to Cincinnati to the Museum Center Omnimax to see this...because who can say their life is complete until they've seen The Rocky Mountain Express on a five-story screen? (Well, we could actually RIDE the Rocky Mountain Express, but not this week.)

And we are looking forward to Easter here...because we all need a trip home now and then.

And I'm sure some of us will be dreaming of the Backroad Adventures we could take in one of these...because who doesn't have dreams of leaving it all behind sometimes?

What will you be doing this busy week? 
Whatever it's hoping we all make a little time for the Backroad!

Hello, I'm imagining that you are all set for Easter? I hope you have enjoyed the lead up of - not sure if you practiced any Lent? - but I hope that you are well, safe and happy. Take care, Love Katie xxx
