Ahhhaaaa! Deep breath...

Today is my first official day of summer break.  I think I might just sit here and bask in that for a while.  Although I usually stay much busier when I'm not working, I enjoy it more because I'm operating on my clock.  There's something to say for that...we all love independence, right?  

A lot has happened since my last post...which I'm terribly ashamed that it has been so long since then.  We have moved in to our new (really, really old) house and are enjoying every minute of it. I think we're enjoying it too much.  We still have random boxes, with the most random assortment of things in them, lying around and we keep playing around in our yard and on our porch instead of finishing moving in.  I have been pretty good about purging needless stuff every year, however, we still manage to have a ridiculous amount of unnecessary things.  It was somewhat embarrassing to watch our friends move all of these ridiculous things.  Even though most things have been put in their place, I still can't put my hands on some stuff...like my perfume and our Cuckoo clock.  Hmmm, maybe they're in the same box?  Anyways, I'm sure I'll be posting more (now that I'm home for the summer - yay!) about the joys of being a homeowner and updating an 82 year old house.  

We also said our goodbyes to Chris and Lindy as they headed back to Nairobi, Kenya.  As always when they visit, I wished time had stood still.  They stayed with us, prepared meals with us, and entertained us with their stories and humor.  Levi really enjoyed entertaining his Uncle "Kssss" and Aunt "Indy."  It has been almost two weeks since they left and he still calls out their names.  I know where he is coming from, I miss them too.  Here's some pics they took while in town....

OH NO...the cuckoo clock...what a tragedy. I hope you find it...oh wait...I was getting it confused with the cat clock (the one with the shifty eyes) :-) I love them both...your house just wouldn't be the same without your crazy clocks.

YAY for being finished with school. Work is so much nicer when you are on your own (or Levi's own) time clock. I'm so excited for YOU!

Yay! I am so excited that I can now leave comments. Getting an invite for the Thompson's Blog forced me to face the "What is that old password?" mystery and now I am back in business. When I come up for our visit in a few weeks you much help me with my blog. I am tired of using aboutmybaby for Grayson's blog and I am thinking about making the switch back to blogger. See you soon!
