So, what have we been up to....
Well, this happened while we were on vacation. We sold it on Craiglist. We are sad it's gone, but the kids just rarely played with it anymore. It was time for it to be sanded and stained again and we didn't want to do that for something the kids go on about once a month. Hopefully, another family will get good use out of it and we are turning the area into an outdoor firepit! The kids all agreed they wanted that more than the swingset. So, I'm on Pinterest trying to find cheap ideas. It kind of makes me teary to think that they've outgrown it. I'm glad I wasn't here for the disassemble and haul away.
The kids did the annual patriotic singing and piano playing at the senior care home. I was so sad to here that Oval had died. She was there from our first visit, but died at 105.
The kids did another week of church camp. They are having a blast. It's daily from 9 to 3, so it gives them something to do and me a break.
School is starting in 3 weeks! I don't know how that happened so fast. I still have stacks of school papers from last year to go through. I'm not feeling on top of my game....yet.
David had his final interview and exam to become a U.S. citizen yesterday. He studied for the 10 question oral exam and was totally prepared. He knew all about Congress, our Senators and everything in between. And then they asked him questions like what ocean is on the west side of the U.S.? Really, challenge the guy some. There was only 1 question out of the 10 that he even had to think about. So, he's approved for citizenship and we will get a letter about his final swearing in ceremony. That'll be fun to go to.
And that's about it! I wish I had something exciting to report, but we are all doing great and I guess that's exciting enough. :)
