Catching up

     A lot has been going on here. The middle boys spent a week in Oregon at Camp Baldwin. They loved it. TJ  rode horses. He is now infatuated with them. They said there were lots of deer and chipmunks, and NO raccoons!
    My little FK should be leaving by next week. Next time I take a "short term" placement, I am going to put it in writing when the child needs to move by. My husband and I knew what we were getting into when we signed up, I am frustrated when things are not communicated correctly. We have another child that is slated to move in. He was our first placement. We said we wouldn't take him back, but sometimes Heavenly Father has other plans. We are planning on taking a week to ourselves to get things organized before school begins.
     Tomorrow Hubby is going to take the paperwork I have and enroll the younger two boys. Next week I need to call the high school and get things going to get them enrolled. I like that even though they will be in another school district ( we live on the border) the schools are closer, and get higher test scores.
    Hubby has his housing and everything lined up for school ( sigh of relief). The housing is the most stressful. He will be renting from the same gentleman as last year. Its close to the school, and he can walk everyday. He finally has a job here though. He is hoping that they will let him transfer or hold his spot until he returns. He will be home around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and then not until April.
    My oldest will be  senior this year. Where has the time gone? It doesn't feel like its been almost 18 years. He and my husband will both be graduating college about the same time ( how funny is that) and son#2 will be graduating a few months after.
    My three new hens are doing well. They are still kind of skittish, but are slowly warming up. One laid an egg today. It is small and white- close to the size of a golf ball. I cant believe its August already. I am not ready for summer to be over yet. We will be going to wildwaves in a few weeks. The kids are excited to  go. It will be fun. I have to work tomorrow, so I need to hit the rack .
