We found a place!

 After a long 2 weeks of hunting,
we finally found a place.  When Jason
flew out there to look, he peeked in
the windows of a similar house next door.
They are really nice townhouses that were
built in 2004.  The negatives?  It only
has 3 bedrooms and it has less than
1/2 of the square footage we have now.
One major plus was the 'large' fenced
yard for Scoop.  We have been so spoiled here
with our huge yard & pool.  Who knew that having
a dog would make house hunting that difficult???
OK, 1 1/2 weeks till moving day and I have
a lot of pretty nice stuff that I will have to start
donating or listing on Craigslist.  Wish me luck!

2 out of 3

 2 out of the 3 of our
kids got their school pictures
back this week.  Sydney is so
cute.  I love her smile and the
way she lights up a room.
Ty's teacher asked if he ever
stops smiling.  He is always happy
and so easy going.  I sure do love
these kids.  Summer took her
pictures weeks before they did,
but I guess High School pictures
take longer.  I'll share hers when
they arrive.

FYI- We have a move date.
November 5th.  We think we 
found a place to live and we
will know for sure by tomorrow.
We'll keep you posted.  :0)

Volleyball Awards & other news

Emily, Chelsea, Madi, & Sydney
Last night was the Volleyball Awards
ceremony.  I am so proud of Sydney and
the incredible athlete she is.  Way to go girls!

In other news, it looks like we are
moving to Montana.  Montana!  The
kids and I aren't thrilled about the move, 
but I'm sure all will be fine.  Wish us
luck and please understand my lack
of posts.  Time to pack up and move.
It looks like the move will happen the
first weekend in November...not much time.
I have to keep reminding myself that the
most important thing is that we will be
together as a family.  Hopefully Summer will
forgive us some day.  Sooner rather than later.

School picture day

 Emily, Chelsea, Sydney, & Madi
 Today is school picture day at Sydney
and Ty's school.  I volunteered to have 
before-school playground duty so the 
teachers could get their pictures taken.
It was fun seeing everyone dressed up and
ready to show their best smiles.
After the bell rang, I ran over to 
snap this quick picture of Ty with
my cell phone.  Obviously, it's not a 
good idea to take your sons picture
when he is lined up on the wall with his 
class.  He fought me on this one.
Goofy (but absolutely adorable) boy!

She can do it!

Summer finally did it.
Maybe not as high as Goose,
but that is still a HUMAN FLAG!
Way to go, Summer!!!
