Happy Weekend!

Slowly, but surely, life is getting back in shape.  

There's quite a bit to get done this weekend.  We're wrapping up our third annual Cousin Week today and tomorrow.  We're getting some curtains hung so the entire neighborhood doesn't know all our business.  Sometime before Tuesday, I need to get my homeschooling mother mode back from where I left it in May.  That includes getting the school room up and running.  And I should probably take my new curriculum out of the cellophane wrap.  And tomorrow, we have a baseball tournament.

Other than that, we'll just be relaxing and enjoying Labor Day weekend.

If you need some great weekend reading and inspiration, check out Ashley's blog, as she's currently in China with her family, and they are about to bring their newest member of the family home.  Go back and read from a couple days ago.  And get some kleenex before you do.

Also, if you want to read a pretty incredible birth story, read Sara's story here.  She dropped her oldest son off to college and went into labor that night!  It's a great story, and I'm so happy for her and this addition to their family.

I'm Still Here.

But with no new pictures to share.  I have lots and lots, but they're all on my lovely memory card.  

We are in the new house!  We moved in, unpacked a few boxes, and headed to Family Camp last week.  Being in our home is wonderful.  Camp was just what we needed.  And now we are home to our house full of boxes.  

We don't have wifi yet, so I'm sitting at Starbucks ordering home school curriculum.  It's fall already and I'm in complete denial about school starting.  Time seems to moving in ways I don't want it to these days.  Nathan turns four in about a month.  Can my youngest child be FOUR?  It feels like he should be no older than two.  

Hopefully, sometime in the near future, I will have the time and energy to blog again.  I miss it.  

Okay, just one picture in closing.
Something totally random like Graham vacuuming.  In his socks.  Listening to music.
Isn't this why we have children?  So we don't have to vacuum.
