We're still here!

Sweet Pea and a new friend.

It has been a while since I posted. I have been so busy working through my to-do list. Honestly, I think I'm nesting. You know that crazy time prior to having a baby where you must complete every last undone project and clean everything in sight. Well, I haven't hit the cleaning phase yet, but I am in major project mode. Hopefully the cleaning will come prior to travel.

We have two new sets of bunk beds. We have sold off a few things that we didn't need on Craig's List. The proceeds of that bought three new twin mattresses for the new bunk beds. I am almost done with two, adorable, little girl quilts for Sweet Pea and her new little sister.(This project has taken the most time by far) And as I have been working at these projects I have also been cleaning out the garage and trying to prepare for a new home school year.

During the busyness I have been so blessed by my friends. I am so thankful for the help they offer. One friend met me at my house at 7am on a Saturday morning to drive with me to a warehouse store to buy mattresses. She was a member at this warehouse and I was not. That trip saved us $150. Wow!

Another friend who loves to sew came to my house with her machine and helped with the work on the quilts. She was faster than I was. So wonderful!

God just continues to bless and I am so grateful. We start school on Monday. That means our "summer" is over. That also means that it won't be long before our little ones are home. Doing school will keep us busy while we wait.

I know all about nesting! My house is a mess because of projects. Plan to deep clean next week, then finish packing before we leave! It feels great to get things checked off the list!! SJ
