Moose Biscuits

I usually make "fish biscuits" out my zucchini cookies, but my fish cookie cutter is packed so Mom had a moose cookie cutter so this is what my kids came home from school to!

First Day of School

Adam's first day of 1st grade was Thursday. I can't believe how early we started this year! I was totally shocked by it as I really thought I'd have more time to decide where to send him, based on where we bought a house (which we haven't yet).  So I just guessed and he's at Machetanz.  Hopefully, I won't be moving him halfway through the year, but if I do, I do!


As you can see from the pictures, we got here almost two weeks ago. We are still house hunting and settling in, but Ray started his new job on Monday and Adam started first grade on Thursday (it started that early, crazy huh?).  So we've been nuts, but I'll update if we find a house!

Packing Up

Hauling out boxes

Our loading crew...we had lots of good help!

The boys spent the last night on the air mattress!

Just a little trash...we donated what we could, took what we just seems moving makes trash....the desks (as expected) got picked up by someone as did most of the furniture we put on the curb

Doing work...nowhere else to sit!

Yard Sale

We did a major yard sale - most kids stuff and furniture before we left. We moved quite a lot of stuff! We ended up with two car loads to Goodwill and one to Catholic Charities (kids' stuff)

Grandpa helping out....

The yard sale queens!

So we got the baby stuff out to sell....they had to drive of course...just a little big, aren't they?
