last week's recap

i can't believe it's thursday and i'm just now getting around to recapping last week...
last week included: the last week of school, 6 homemade teacher gifts, laney's double-ear infection, luke getting the crud, we found out we're moving to birmingham, birthday parties, new parent orientation at sam's new school, a dentist appointment, ron giving notice, and more...

yep, you heard right. we're moving to birmingham at the end of the summer. i know i said we were planning on being in this house 15 years. but i also said there were only two things that could pull us away from this house: family and/or ron's job. well, both factors were involved in deciding to make the move. we desperately want to be closer to family and ron had a new job opportunity come his way. so the house is on the market. if we don't sell by the middle of august, we'll be temporarily moving in with b and pops so the kids can start school.

now on to a few pictures.
these are the dish towels i made for the kids' teachers

here's luke after 15 minutes outside at our lemonade stand. we planned on giving away lemonade for free, but ended up making $2. people just don't want to take something for free anymore. hey, show me a free lemonade stand and i'll show up without any money just for you...

laney discovered the tupperware cabinet.

moments after this picture she discovered how to fall out of the tupperware cabinet face first and get a bruise on her forehead.

sam and luke wanted a cast on their leg. so i used their ba (blankies) and gave them something to cry about. just kidding. i just gave them a fake cast. ☺

so there's our week in a nutshell. it was a big week. now we've moved on to the first week of summer and the days are long. i am not complaining, just learning how to embrace the next few months of quiet days.

Wow, you're moving to Birmingham! It's a wonderful thing being closer to family- which is the very same reason we left Atlanta 2 years ago to come here. Good Luck and I'll miss running into you =)
