Screen Free Week 2017

O.K.  Finally getting around to blogging about Screen Free Week.  Yay.
O.K.  So Screen Free Week this year was Monday, May 1- Sunday, May 7.  On Sunday, April 30, I was sick.  Blech.  Probably a 24-hour bug.  Not fun.  So first day of Screen Free Week on Monday, lots of resting/recovering and lots of book reading.  No movies.  Actually, Tuesday was also recovering.  Wednesday, I did pretty well.  I got out and got some things done, even going for a nice walk.  Then Wednesday night, Jr. was sick.  Sigh.  So, I was up all night taking care of him.  He was up a lot, too, but somehow, somehow, he had energy on Thursday.  My goodness.  I did not.  I was so exhausted that day.  Jr. stayed home from school but he was able to play with his brothers while I slept on the couch.  I am glad he was able to bounce back from that pretty well.  I didn't.  It was also good because Jr. was able to go to the school's annual Art Night and didn't have to miss it.  Walking to the school that evening did take a bit out of him (and I was still tired), so we only stayed for a little while.  Long enough to see the art projects each of our kids had on display and see Jeremy and his balloon hats he was making for people.  They kind of had an Inside Out theme going on, so Jeremy made hats based on the different emotions.  Simple and quick enough to get through a lot of people and they loved them.

Friday, Jr. was able to go to school.  Nobody was sick on Saturday and Sunday.  And that's what Screen Free Week was like this year.  Sick and resting and no movies or video games.
Actually, there were other things we did do during the week.  Here are some pictures:

Nichole brought home medals from their 6th grade Olympics.
Tuesday, May 2, was Baby Day.  We had pigs in a blanket, baby corn, baby dill pickles, baby carrots, lil' smokies in Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce, tater tots, and milk to drink.

We celebrated Cinco de Mayo on Friday with chimichangas, refried beans, spanish rice, and chips and salsa.

Jeremy and I both got to do some birding.  Jeremy saw killdeer with their little puffball chicks.  He also got better pictures of a skunk than I got last year.

There were other things we did, of course, but with what I was going through that week, if I don't have pictures, I don't remember.
