This month we celebrated the 4th of July with a family get together with Jeff's brother and their famliy at their home and and evening fireworks watched from our front yard. The fireworks weren't as fun as sometimes, but we enjoyed spending time together. The weekend of the 4th Jeff and I tackled a few projects around the house and got Quinn moved upstairs to the boys room before putting up some decor in the nursery and moving Kade into the crib. Colt (our night owl) still sleeps in the living room or master bedroom, but I hope to transition him to the nursery soon.
Then Katy and Kaomi went to VBS at our church, followed by a busy week cleaning the bedrooms. Kent got to take a trip to New Mexico with Grammy and Jeff's sister and brother-in-law. Then Katy and Kaomi attended Kid's Praise Camp at our church for a week and participated in three productions of "The Kingdom Connection" and they really enjoyed it.
I've also worked on cleaning my closet and bathroom this month trying to tackle some much neglected cleaning before we start back to school. I worked on some school plans and have redone our schedule to include most of the kids in several of the classes we have this year. We'll see how combining grades works for us, but just looking at our tentative schedule is providing a sense of relief for this teacher/mom who was having trouble trying to fit in "everything" for three different levels. We have plans to start back to school on August 8th, so this next week we will be trying to put any final details on getting ready for school and I am going to work on cleaning my sewing room/guest room.
