I'm Still Here...

It's been a while since I have posted anything new. We've been staying busy and I haven't had much time to use the computer. I'd post some pictures but Bob has my camera tonight - something about a big jet coming into work tonight...

Jozie is pretty excited to get her cast off next week. She is counting the days! LOL I am counting the days as well - I'm tired of bathing her and putting her clothes on for her! :)

Luke got his bike replaced by Grandpa Byron. :) It was a camping bike that they got for $3 at a garage sale we went to back in May. They had several girl bikes but this was the first boy bike. It is exactly like Luke's old bike except with a couple of the pads still on it. He's really glad to not have to ride his sisters pink bike anymore! :) Thanks Grandpa! :)

Bob has been working a lot of extra hours lately. Which is good but on the down side it means that our rent will go up next month - we live in income based housing...grrr...I know I shouldn't complain but we don't know how much that increase will be. Isn't there some kind of law that says you are supposed to have a 30 day notice?

Me, I've been knitting a lot lately again. I know someone who is having a baby soon so I've been trying out several new projects for the occasion! ;) It's hard to type and knit at the same time! :)

I'm starting a unit study on South Dakota next week with the kids using this book. Hopefully they won't complain too much - I'm going to try and ease them into school this year and it incorporates almost everything except for math so I will just have them practice their times tables along with it. I have the unit studies for both MI and IN as well so if this one goes well we will be using both of those next. They are pretty simple books but the Unit Studies sort of use them as stepping stones for more information.

I will try and remember to post pictures when Bob gives me my camera back! Until then you will just have to make due with my words! :)

Well its about time we see some words;) Glad to see things are going well and are busy. Boy, that stinks that your rent will go much for having extra money! Today we did a tiny bit of 'school'...I need to figure out when I'm going to start this year. It will have to be earlier than I normally start with a baby on the way! Oh, and you haven't mastered typing and knitting at the same time??? What is wrong with you? Just kidding!!! BTW, I am not addicted to facebook and found so many of our old friends.
