Next week cannot get here soon enough. My husband has to take 5 days off before his contract renews. Sadly we do not get to choose his days they are automatically the last 5 of his contract. We did not even realize it was coming so soon. Needless to say we are VERY excited! He has not had more than 2 days off at a time in over a year. He has not had a single Saturday off and almost every week has worked 6 days. Yes, we are thankful for the job but it gets very lonely never having him with me at events, taking the kids everywhere by yourself and since his only day off is Sunday, we NEVER have an entire day to spend at home. We have no real plans for the week. He has some projects to do around the house, I plan on snagging some majorly needed naps, we are going on a date and leaving, gulp, all four kids with my mom and sister (our heroes) and we definitely plan on creating some special family moments with the kiddos. Meanwhile....here are a few pictures for your enjoyment!
