I sure haven't blogged in a while. Well, we'll just call it busy-with-summer and get back to things now that the next season has started... The middle school across the street from us is busy again. I can see the buses full of kids arriving from my kitchen window in the morning.

We just got back from a nearly month long vacation in Oregon. The kids and I visited my family while Abe stayed home to work. Boy! Did we miss him!! It was a wonderful visit and I'm so glad the kids got to know their Aunt, Uncle, and Cousin as well as spend some extended time with Grandma and Grandpa.

We've only been home a few days, but I guess we're back to normal. Monday is Washing day and I'm changing the beds and unpacking and putting away the last of our stuff from our trip. I went with the intention of shopping for some clothes I needed for the winter and the next size for the kids. I went with about a bag and a half full and I came back with 3 bags packed to bursting!! I think I got some pretty useful stuff. Some was hand me downs, some was second hand from a consignment store I LOVE. I wish I lived closer, but it's probably a good thing we don't! :) I bought the Little People School Bus full of people there for only $5. I also found a nice dollhouse, but it was a little too big to bring back, so it stayed at the store.

So, on to Washing and writing a menu plan for the week.

Next week we're starting our Homeschool preschool! I think it will be great fun. Theona is very into school stuff and Jecoa is pretty interested in whatever his big sister is doing, so I'm expecting excitement over the whole thing! Our school year schedule is probably going to seem very busy at first, but I still hope to blog. I'm gonna put it on our schedule. We'll see how that works.

Love in Christ to All!!
