It has been a crazy couple of days. Blogger went down for nearly 48 hours and a partial post that I had written and saved disappeared into the abyss. Very frustrating. Due to busy schedules I was unable to rewrite the post over the weekend.
Kids have finished their end of year testing. I use the CAT test from Seton. Although we school year round I do test the kids to get a feel for how we are doing in May. I use the summer to work on any weakness that come up with the testing.
My parents are arriving from the states in one week and we are very excited. I have been cleaning and sorting the house all weekend. The kids and I spent 2 hours sorting thru the toy room. We have a huge pile of toys to sell and/or donate. It was a challenge getting the kids to part with some toys like the fisher price little people toys. The kids really wanted to hang on to these but after much negotiation we have weeded out at least half of them.
I have also sorted and attempted to organize the school room. Unfortunately we don't have any storage pace so there is still too many books on the floor. But hopefully I have them in piles of like materials so I will be able to find resources more easily. Until we get a bigger house there is only so much I can do with this space.
Next on my list of things to do is sort thru my clothing and the children's clothing and try to organize drawer space. I hope to get this done this week.
This weekend my daughter had her bridging ceremony in Girl Scouts. She has moved up to the Junior level.
While there I was approach and asked to consider being the leader for her troop next year. I have been the assisted leader 2 years in a row for her troop. There was no junior troop this year because no one volunteered to lead the troop so unless someone else volunteers I will be trying to fit that into my already pack schedule.
Due to my parents arriving and visiting, my posts may be a bit sporadic over the next month but we have 2 amazing trips planned, one I have already mentioned, Normandy but the other one is a surprise:).
Please join Tracy, Lynda and I over at the NOBH
