Playing Catch-up

I can't believe it's been a month since my last post. And I was doing so well. Life just seems so busy lately even though I am home a lot more these days. And it's not for lack of blog ideas. Seriously, I think of stuff all day long to blog about, kind of like when you catch yourself thinking in Facebook status updates :P.

We started school a few weeks earlier than I'd originally anticipated at the girls request... which is fine by me. A two week head start definitely couldn't hurt us. This year we are doing all Rod & Staff except for our Princess Class (more about that later) and I really like it. We are doing EVERYTHING which may be adjusted over Christmas break. I think the hardest part is trying to figure out were the girls are. In several subjects I would like to skip ahead, past the stuff they already know but at the same time I'm afraid I'll pass over some key building block they'll need later. So for now everything is review. Which makes for easily bored girls but this will pass... I hope.

Without going into much detail yet Graham and I recently applied with a national missions organization and in the 'waiting to hear' stage... We both seem really drawn to Chicago and have excitedly been perusing tons of sites looking at housing and such... It really is a fantastic city. We'll see.

In other news: Graham has put together (with TONS of help from one amazing Sarah Cox) a Fall Men's Softball team. I think he spends 80% of his time thinking about and planning for this. It will be fun for the kids and I to cheer them on... Maybe I'll post schedule and score stuff here.

Bullet point recap for this past week:
* Silas and Izzie are under the weather - nothing too serious
* Didn't sell near as much as I'd like at JBF but I registered to consign at the Weatherford one so hopefully I can sell the rest.
* My Dad got promoted to Sgt. and will start in his new position next week. All part of the final plan to retirement and no one deserves it more than him!

That's all for now.
