Field Day

Today was Field Day at Clover Pass Christian School. Both Jaden and Adam tried really hard and did very well. We enjoyed beautiful weather, and a great BBQ lunch afterward.

So packing and chaos has begun in our house! We are finally all relatively healthy after about a month of various illnesses, so I am seriously getting down to business. On Monday I sat down and came up with a plan, writing down goals for each week between now and when we leave. This week, the goal was the kids rooms, and the attic, both big jobs. I am happy to report that so far this week I have packed 20 boxes/totes, have 8 bags for the goodwill, and burned 3 garbage bags of junk! Even though our house looks like the back room at the Salvation Army I am making headway, but still have lots to do :)

Best Friends

All of you with more than one child can testify to the fact that siblings fight. Sometimes they scream and yell at each other, sometimes it sounds like they are killing each other, but there are times that it is very evident that they completely love each other and are the best of friends. I like to catch those moments!!

Leaving Ketchikan

Even though we have not sold our house yet, we have made one decision that will get this whole moving process rolling. The kids and I (helen)are booked to leave town on June 2nd. Jasen and I have talked long and hard about different senarios and what would be the best for us, and decided to at least let the boys finish the school year.

The amazing thing about the whole situation is that we were able to find 6 mileage tickets on the same flight to Florida. Not only that, but we were able to purchase them for only 10,000 miles each. I was only able to find one day that this deal was available, and it was the Monday after the last day of school. So, I have about 8 weeks to pack up a be ready to go. It is bitter sweet, but it will be good to finally starting taking steps toward the future.

My Mom & Dad will be coming up around the 25th of May. Dad is going to drive our van down to Florida for us which is where we will be until the house sells, and we can relocate to Tennessee. My Mom is going to fly with us, and Jasen is going to stay and work until the house sells.
