Hello everyone... just popping in to see hi. I will have a longer post soon.
I can't belive my last post was a month ago! Where has the time gone???
The last time I posted Mike and Ryan were going to Boy Scout Camp and I was holding the fort down with the other 4 kids. We actually spent that entire week deep cleaning our basement so our exchange student from Denmark could stay in the basement bedroom while he is here. I figured it would give him a little more privacy and "quiet" when he needs it.
We had 26 bags of "stuff" (clothes, toys, electronics, etc) for the Goodwill - that should tell you how hard we worked (and how messy it was)!! Wish I had taken a before picture but I didn't but I will post an after picture soon because I'm so happy that it's cleaned up and we can use it again. I was up at 5:00am every morning to start the cleaning and that's usually when I do my blogging - so that week I really got out of sync. And I honestly haven't stopped moving since!
The cleaning actually went on for 3 weeks (every day - all day) - we finished up the day he came. Tomorrow we take him to camp in Woodland Park, CO (about 3 hours from our house) and he will stay there for 1 week. Then we pick him up next Saturday. He will be here for 2 more nights, and then we take him to the airport. Everyday has been packed FULL of activities, etc... so when I get time I will post some photos. He has been an total joy to have and we are going to miss him when he leaves. My 2 oldest start school next week (one on Tuesday and the other on Thursday), and we are getting new carpet in our entire house (don't ask):) so I will try to get a post up on Sunday since I'm not sure how crazy things will get. Remember that I've homeschooled for the past 8 years so homework, driving to 2 different schools, etc.. will all be new for us!
I love you all and have tried to read posts as I've had a moment to get on the computer. Ready for more of a schedule now that school is starting and hoping to find a good time to blog each day. Thanks for your comments and for checking on me. Didn't mean to "disappear" - just didn't realize it had been so long..... time flys when you're having fun (and cleaning your basement) :)
I guess I should post that the last time I weighed in a few days ago my weight was 153.0 - up a little over my last official weigh-in so I am very excited to get back on track. We have been eating out alot since we have been on the move so much lately. I'll give you a full re-cap in my next post! Until then have a great day!!
