But here is the post:
So much going on this summer, it's been hard to catch my breathe. With 2 very active girls and a big, energetic big brother, sometimes I need it to slow down a bit.
We have officially (closed) sold our Broad Ripple house and now our new house is almost done. In fact, we go today for the walk through and close next Friday. Wowzers!!! It seemed so long ago in May when we began this process, yet it also seems like it was just yesterday. I know we are all looking forward to the new, big, space, the parks, the trails, the yard, the garage!! But it's a little sad to leave the house I've been in for the last 14 years. And the convenience of walking wherever and dropping by and seeing friends in a split second. It's a new adventure, though, and it will be probably even better than I can imagine.
We told Luke's TBDC when his last day was and it was very sad for me. He loves Ms. Donna and I really like Ms. Stephanie the director. Plus our 'Good morning Ms. Melinda' wave is something he looks forward to. He has done so many great things and it's so fun to see him so eager to learn and please. We will miss them very much. But that said, we found a new school up by our offices that I feel he will love just as much. It will just be an adjustment, more for me than him, I'm sure. Kids are so resilient and we are lucky he is so happy and makes friends easily. The girls will continue to stay at Pam's until they are ready for bigger and better things. I think we might move them earlier than we did Luke. They, too, will thrive when the time is right.
Speaking of the girls, they are just so darn funny and silly. Silly sisters we call them. They love to help you put things away, give you the remote, give their graham cracker to their other sister, or help wherever they can. They must be going through a growth spurt because they are not sleeping as well as usual.
Luke equates the new house with a marble game. Basically Raya & Charlie and Max & Luke have the same marble games, and new houses, and he must assume he is getting one because we are getting a new house. So, I will have one for him in his room when it's ready! And he has helped me with his shower curtain and bathroom. Can't wait!
