I should be packing but...

Well I woke up this morning and realized two weeks from today we are packing up the truck. So, I packed 4 boxes before 8 am. I was inspired, I was cranking, there was no stopping me. Then I took my husband to work, with plans to grab some packaging tape at the px and continue the packing. Well, while at the px I realized all clearance clothing was additional 40% off. How could I pass that up? So I stayed a little longer than expected. So, now I am back home, I got some great clothing for like 2-3 bucks each. And I need to get back to packing. My motivation has gone down somewhat since this morning. Not only did I spend "packing time" shopping, but I bought more stuff to pack. So this afternoon I will be making up for lost time.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Well, we have been very busy lately. WE were all four sick for about a week. The boys started preschool last week, and then my sister and her family came in town for the weekend.

Jacob is growing like a weed. He was excited to start preschool. Every time I pick him up I ask his teachers how he did, and they get this tiring look on thier face and tell me "He never stops". I 'm thinking, no, he doesn't! That's why I'm always tired! He loves o climb on EVERYTHING. He loves to run, play ball, play outside and explore bugs and whatever else he can find He is a busy toddler. He definately has no fear. When he gets sent to time out he tells me "Mom, just so you know, I'm not going to time out, and I'm not kidding!" It drives me crazy, but I am trying to be very patient. He is going to teach me patience. I love him so much!

Jonathan is growing so much as well. He loves preschool. He loves to read, watch movies, play games, and go to the playground. He is almst four, I can't believe it. He chose to have a pokemon party this year, so we are going to have it before we move, since we will be on the road on his birthday. He is learning how to read and doing very well. We are teaching him how to sound out letters. I love him so much!

Lately the big thing at our house is games! We have been playing candyland and chutes and ladders quite frequently.

Joe and I have been busy. I have been trying to get some packing done. We had our pre-inspection yesterday, and minus a few things, our house is good to go. I have to repaint, or pay for the walls I painted, but I knew that was coming. We have all our hotels booked and our truck booked for our move. I am excited, but I am also going to miss it here also. So things are moving along.
