What I've been doing

Here is a link to our house listing. I'm not quite sure what to do with myself after the frantic activity of the last few weeks. If you think getting a house ready to sell is easy when you also have six children in your home, come over, I have some babysitting you might enjoy.

We are leaving next week and taking three days to get there. We promised the kids swimming time each night. Thirty years to the day I left Texas (with my family of course) we will be moving back. It seems everyone in the house has pretty mucg gotten past theregret and we are now all anxious to get going. I don't think that excitement will last through the whole 20 hr+ drive, but D. and I are keeping that reluctance to ourselves.

We are doing a moving sale this weekend and hopefully will sell enough to at least pay for dinner, if not a hotel room. I've never done a garage sale before, so hopefully it won't turn out too badly.

Our phone numbers will remain the same and we will send out an email shortly with our new address on it

Farewell to Summer

I will deal with the farewell to Moab later, when I know more details about exactly when, though right now we are looking to move to San Antonio on Oct. 6th. Which is in less than three weeks, which I don't want to think about now or I will panic a little bit more. So, on to the last activities of summer.
There was a back to school carnival which was enjoyed by all:

Today we also hiked to the Upheaval Dome in Canyonlands National Park. A very cool place, though it did make me nervous having all those kids up there. to find out more about how this impressive place was formed, look here.
And B's fourth birthday was today. Just by chance, Grandpa and Grandma Ward and cousins and aunts and uncles were here, so we had a good little party.

Now I suppose we have to accept that fall is upon us and buckle down to work, but summer was a lot of fun.
