June Update

Actually, it is probably more of a May and June update since I've been absent from here for so long!  

Life wasn't busy enough in May, so we decided to start our master closet reorganization.

After we got everything out of the closet, it looked like the entire closet threw up in our bedroom which eventually spilled out into the rest of the house.  (I will show you the "finished" product tomorrow.)

Of course that project led to cleaning out the entertainment center, the hall closet, the hutch/cabinet, and eventually the coat closet.  

The only closet I have left is the main bathroom closet, but that isn't really related to the original project.. and I'm tired of reorganizing closets!

At the same time we started the master closet project, we also bought some used kitchen cabinets from someone and have drawn out the plans to use those.  Some will be used in the garage and some in an unused corner in the kitchen. They, of course, are still sitting in the garage...

Brian left town for a conference the first of June, so that insane twitch of mine decided it was a good time to pull down the back fence.  In all honesty, though, I really was trying to take advantage of the beautifully mild weather we had that weekend. 

This project is still on going and probably will be for the rest of the summer.  When you only have 30 minutes here and there, projects get done very slowly!  Unfortunately, the beautifully mild weather has already left us and has been replaced with 90+ heat.

Let see...other things going on in the last 4 - 6 weeks...

Baseball, baseball, baseball

Sarah's first dance camp

Daniel participated in a week long mission trip

Matt turned 17 and got his permanent license

Friends moved away :-(

The dishwasher broke

Sarah had her first ever eye appointment (which went very well)

Matt's been narrowing down colleges to visit

Brian's mentor from England is in town for an extended conference

I've been planning trips to Nashville and Louisiana for later this summer

and, last but not surely not least, preparing for homeschooling in the fall

I know there has been some more things going on, but at the moment I'm too tired to remember it all!

I think I need a nap...

Living thru faith,
