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.

It's sad that C is going to be gone so long... I love the pics of the kiddos. It's great that T is loving school! I hope his enthusiasm keeps up through High School. You have no idea how hard it is to get my 15yr son to get up in the morning for school, LOL!
