Nothing new

Not a whole lot is going on around here. We are just gearing up for C to leave in a few weeks. He is trying to get some stuff taken care of around the house before then. He is finishing up the garage and is going to restain the deck. He is on leave this week to work on that stuff and we are going to SC for a friends wedding this Saturday. We are leaving mid week to visit with his sister and kids because that's the only time they will get to see him before he leaves.
T is still loving Kindergarten. I had my first parent/teacher conference last week. He is doing well, according to his teacher. He is doing well with his letters and even learning some words, which is making a big difference in his eagerness to learn. He can actually see/understand what we mean about needing to know his letters to read.
K is just growing like a weed. She is still just scooting around, but she started pulling up/climbing on me this weekend so I'm sure she will be doing more of that soon. I'm so not ready for that yet. I guess it will happen anyway. lol
I've been working on Christmas cards lately. I am thinking about doing an album for Christmas (pre-made pages) and/or an album like this one. I'll have to go back and take a look at how she put it together. Since C is leaving before Christmas I decided that I would stay home with the kids. Mostly because its just too much effort to drag 2 kids, all their junk, as well as Christmas presents for them and for(and from) family all by myself. I also think that keeping things as routine as possible will help, especially in the beginning.
That's about all for now. Here's a couple of pics of the kids playing outside a few days ago.

I have been a little slack on getting my camera out the last few months, which is not a good thing since I have an 8 month old who is constantly moving/learning/discovering and has a ton of fabulous photo opps every day. I have seen this flyer on a couple of different blogs lately so I think I am going to try it out. Maybe it will get me motivated.

A site to share...

Sell Used Books Online - Quick Cash, Free Shipping, Free Quotes!

I read about this site in a magazine that I subscribe to and I checked out the site. It seems pretty straightforward. I am going to dig through some of my old books to see if they will take any of them. For anyone who may have college kids/friends/etc, this could be the way to get rid of the unwanted textbooks.
