What I should be doing...

is tackling this.

Yeah, that's the hall closet. I should be cleaning and packing it, but I'm not going to. I also have phone calls to make and laundry to do, but I'm not doing that either. My throat hurts (I hope from reading with and speaking loudly to large groups of children, and not the beginnings of some unfortunately timed illness) and I'm going to knit, watch TV, and read tonight.

why I haven't posted...

Things are crazy! Work is so busy and rewarding right now! I'm seeing so many kids every week, but it's a lot of loud reading and talking and well, performing and very tightly scheduled most days. I'm grateful Matt's home to take care of a lot of the cooking and cleaning and house selling/house buying stuff.

Speaking of house stuff, we have had an offer. It was really low and we've counteroffered and are waiting to see about that...

In the meantime we made a last minute decision to run to our new hometown on Friday evening to check out houses and then were back Saturday night for duties at church on Sunday. We are pretty sure about the house we'd like there, but we also saw the fabulous apartment we'll rent if the house does not sell before moving day.

I need a vacation. I owe emails and phone calls and will be working on that soon.

The lake

We went out on the lake yesterday. We figured we might as well give the old "mean green bean" (that's what we call our extremely rednecky johnboat) one more spin before we move. It was so fun! We put in at a different location that was nicer and less crowded than where we've started in the past.

We took some pictures with Matt's camera phone:
Isn't this lake beautiful? I can see why so many people have summer homes here.
Snapped this pic before we jumped in for some swimming.
