It's Been Quiet...

If you follow this blog, you have noticed that it's been a bit quiet for the last couple of months.  Trying to come up with things to write about has been challenging.  Probably because I have not had the urge to actually sit down and write.  With that said, here is an update of what we have been doing:

The kids ended their 2016/2017 year in April and have had the last couple of months off.  They are aching to start the 2017/2018 year.  This will happen the first week of July. If we were to start public school, we would have a 9th and 7th grader this year. 

The construction of our house is coming along and it looks like we will be moving in by the end of September of this year!  It has been a long 9 years of building and we are all excited to see it completed.  The kids have helped a little bit with painting their bedrooms and with the wiring.  We still need to do a few more things (heat, plumbing, paint the other rooms, carpeting and other flooring) before the official moving in...or I should say moving up.

Work is rather quiet right now.  A lot of down time during the summer months, which is a welcome reprieve from all the deadlines that need to be met between September and May.

 That's about it with the updates...I'm sure I've left a few things out, but that would be for another post.
