This is the week we've been waiting for....

So for some reason the family that is in our future home has decided to move. They were supposed to be moving out this weekend, then the house will be cleaned Wednesday, so we can start moving in Thursday. Jordon has the day off Friday so we will try to get it all done then, at least have it all moved to the house. Then the unpacking can begin.
I have also found some kids to babysit. Next week I will have 3 extra kids, besides my own. The girl is 5, almost 6, then the boys are 3 and 18 months. The boys I will just have every other week because they are with their mom on the other weeks. I will have the daughter each week though. She has a great time playing with Ashley and I'm sure Sam will have a great time with the 3 year old so we should have a great time.
School is going good for all the kids. Sam loves his preschool and hates days that he doesn't get to go. Here are some pictures of the bird "mests" that he made at school this last week.

Because of the 20 minutes a night that the kids are supposed to read we have been reading lots of books. We even had to borrow some from Sarah because we go through them so quick. It usually only takes us less than a week to read through one.
I have also been busy this week making some hair bows for Ashley since she now wears some every day for school. It's been a fun project for me and it has made her extra excited about wearing them so it's even better.
Jordon has been busy working both his jobs. They have even made him a shift lead at Triumph (the residential home) so he is in charge of everybody there. The boys love him there and think he is totally cool. Most days aren't too bad, but the last few days have been a little rough with some of the boys causing problems. We sure do appreciate him though and all he does for us.
Parent teacher conferences are this week for the older 2 kids. Hopefully we will only have good reports from their teachers, but we will see.

Glad to hear you'll be moving in! I like Sammy's mests! Very nicely constructed! :)
