Vacation=Work Time?

I am on vacation in Florida this week and am LOVING it! My hubby had to work and happily sent my girls and I off for 10 days in Florida with my family. He was so excited to be able to organize the garage, work on the yard, catch up on paperwork, etc. without me having him come up to help with the girls every little bit! Don't get me wrong, he misses us, but he really can't accomplish anything when we are all home at once! The girls are running everywhere and are in to EVERYTHING!!!! And of course they take off in different directions to try to do such fabulous things as feeding the dogs shoes, climbing the steps, ripping up every bit of paper they can find, and so on!

For my part, I am in heaven with all the help! My entire family is constantly helping with the girls and there really isn't much for me to do! I can actually sit on the couch!!!!! (usually my girls get really mad if I am not a human jungle gym on the floor with them) If the girls run off to get into something someone grabs them on the way and redirects them. AND my aunt baby proofed the whole condo!!! I might just stay...hee hee! On top of that, the girls are so tired from the pool and all the playing outside that they go to bed at 8 and I don't hear a peep out of them until 730 the next morning.

So with all the wonderful help I actually have energy. You would think I would be sitting around all day at the pool or napping, but no! I am actually working like crazy on my to do list while I have baby wranglers. On a normal day I end up so tired at the end of the day that the last thing I want to do is turn on the computer! So this is such a treat to have energy to be able to stay up and get things done! Katie has also been working away so here is what we have accomplished so far this summer: (more is almost ready!!!)
All About Me Board and More
Beginning of Year Fun
Back to School Common Core Math Centers
Back to School Survival Kit
Awards and Certificates

You can find all of these in our TPT store!

I haven't spend the WHOLE time working! Here is a little bit of what we have been up to!

We also have been hanging out at the pool but for some crazy reason my little 14 month old darlings won't hold still for a picture when they can be running around the pool and trying to jump in the deep end!!!
This is the best they would let me do!

I'm off to actually read a book for a little while before I go to bed!  Oh, the little things!!!!!
