Wow! It's been a week since I've posted anything; I guess we've been busy with my parents here and trying to get the last of the boxes unpacked. We still have quite a few to work on, but the house looks much better than it did when we started. My hope is that we can be unpacked enough by next Monday to dive back into school full-time...I think we will be, but we have some work to do between now and then.
The kids have kept up pretty well with their English, Math, and Handwriting the whole time. They have also spent LOTS of time doing art projects and have spent a little time blogging. As a matter of fact, Logan is writing a story, so you all should check out his blog (see the link on my sidebar) to read it. He's just beginning, so you'll need to check back for the rest of the story...day by day, probably. Of course, they've enjoyed their time with Nana and PawPaw, just playing and talking and spending time playing with Jessie (my parents' dog).
We've been able to meet a couple of the neighbors and everyone has been very kind. A lady and her daughter brought over a grape pie yesterday to welcome us to the neighborhood...they were very nice, and the pie is delicious! The daughter, Emily, is a teenager and is available to babysit occasionally. They only live 2 doors down, so that would work great for us. We'll have to have her come over soon to see how she gets along with the kids.
Well, I'll try to get back soon. I have to get back to unpacking boxes and organizing the basement (school room). Take care!
