Moving Congratulations Outside

We're moving...

Can you tell?

We saved the vast majority of boxes we used when we moved last time, as well as collecting several more from a variety of Arby's stores in Salt Lake. I have also been snagging any empty box left abandoned at school for more than a few moments.

We packed the books last night. Conflicting emotions there...I'm excited to move, excited to be done with this less-than-thrilling time of life, excited to live in our new house...but we are leaving a lot of good things behind. I'll miss Logan. And I don't get to see my books for seven weeks. Sigh.

Anyway, we are up to sixteen boxes. Of books only. And that doesn't count the other bookcase and a half of books I still have at school, nor the random books I keep finding scattered around the house. (You also can't see the fourth bookcase that is in this room in either of the pictures.) By the way, if I loaned you a book that I've forgotten about, will you let me know and get it back to me before we move? Thanks!

Congratulations to me...

I passed the Praxis PLT. I took it on the same day as two of my friends...we all scored within four points of each other. I think that's fairly impressive when there are 200 points possible.

I guess, in the end, it was worth missing Michael and Amanda's reception. Even though I would much rather have gone there.


Hooray for spring. Hooray for no snow!

I happened to have my camera with me when I went to pick up the girls from day care sometime last week. They were playing outside, in the sunshine. I couldn't resist.

Apparently Jane is practicing to be a model. She may need to hire a hair stylist, however, if she ever hopes to make any mark on the modeling world.

Megan, on the other hand, just needs some hair.

Six more weeks of school.

Seven more weeks until I get to live in the same city as my husband again.

I think I still have Ella Minnow Pea. I'll check tonight...or this week. BTW, I'm watching MASH right now. I've never really watched it before.

You're getting so close! I can't believe you have that many books. WOW! Your girls are so cute. I love Jane's modeling picture.

We had sooo many books when we moved. The majority of them are still in the basement waiting to be sorted. It's a sickness we teachers have, I can't toss a completely destroyed book. We miss Logan, but life is much more relaxing these days. Good luck with the move!
