Heading home...

This is the morning of the last night on the road, and I'm getting into home mode. We are soo soo excited to be heading home, but now it is time to think about all of the cleaning up, taking down of Christmas and unpacking that awaits us...ugh! Sitting in the hotel this morning I've attempted to "clean up" my blog, but for some reason my new picture won't take up the whole space (and I can't seem to get another picture in the blank space). At least I got rid of the Christmas decor.

This kids are watching junky TV (cartoon network) and for now I'm letting them.

Mike is at his trade show (in this same hotel).

We've done pretty well with schoolwork on this trip. Jonathan and Madi have a history test today on the Mongols (Gengis Kahn and Kublai Kahn). Everyone has done math most days, and Jake's done Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening and Snowflake Bentley for FIAR. We've not gotten too far with our science curriculums, but did see how ice cream and beer are made and spent some time at the Air and Space Museum yesterday (and might go back there today).

I really thought I'd have more responses to my bra color post.

I really need to stop worrying about/ wanting comments.

If I were a different person I'd remove the comments option, but I'm not so I won't.

Jake will have his first baskbetball game on Saturday.

GREASE rehersal started yesterday, the kids will be at Theatre on Friday...all three will be in GREASE!!

We have a lot of doctor's appointments coming up when we get home. Madi has a potential thyroid issue, Mike has a potential kidney issue, Jake will begin seeing the orthodontist...please pray for a good outcome for all of these.

I'm starting a Faith study next Tuesday and I'm really looking forward to it.

I still haven't been able to get any pictures off my phone. I'm just assuming it'll work on our home computer. I wish I could've gotten that done sooner, I can't believe I don't even have Christmas pictures on here yet.

Time to start cracking the whip...right after some starbuck's scones for breakfast (but seriously this is NOT a vacation!!)

Good to hear from you!
I think junky tv in a hotel room at the end of a three week vaca is totally fine. I'm impressed you have kept up with school so well. I don't think I could have done that. I have a hard enough time getting things done at home like I want to.
As far as comments--I hardly get any anymore either. I think the instant gratification of facebook comments and the time taken away from blogs is part of the reason for the sparse comments. I am always surprised to find how many people read my blog regularly despite so few comments.
Grease rehearsal was a lot of fun for the kids yesterday--there are a LOT of new kids.

You're cracking me up with your "this is NOT a vacation" comments. But, I believe you. :)

I'm looking forward to Tuesday as well, except for I have to do the first presentation and I am quite nervous.
Safe travels.

We can't wait for you to get home either! Junky tv is always ok when you are on the road! As long as it is not porn! :)

We will be praying about all the upcoming dr. visits. We have a couple ourselves, including Sara to the orthodontist as well. We should carpool! :)

Hurry back, and that long with kids is seriously NOT a vacation! I am bad about commenting. I think it is because I have so little time I just read and go ;(

Most of December I have stayed off my blog so no one got read.

See you soon!
