These past few weeks have been insanely busy at our house!
First, I threw my first every garage sale – and made about $250! Not bad. I plan on having another soon. Trying my best to de-clutter as much as possible before we move. I did discover a few things though. It wasn’t work taking work off on Friday – I hardly had anyone show up and only made $20. Saturday was a killer though and there were people coming from the time I set up till we put everything away! And labeling every item with a price is a pain. Easier to put out signs with group prices (like books $1, DVDs $2, all baby clothes $.50, etc). Some items needed individual prices still but that was easier than labeling every single thing. I put out signs but I think my postings on FB got much more attention than the signs did. Our garage is currently taken up by tables and clothing hangers. It’ll be good to be done with it all but I haven’t signed off yet. Whatever we can’t sell is being donated so trying to sell as much as possible!
The day after my garage sale ended, hubby graduated. Seriously, I was trying to kill myself! Two day garage sale and then a grad party. Honestly, I’m not sure what I was thinking but it worked out. It was exciting to go and watch him accept his *empty* diploma (they mail it out to you later). Such a huge accomplishment for him! Couldn’t be more proud 🙂 and now its grad school prep time plus moving! Of course, he’s still wrapping his head around that fact that he is DONE with his undergrad. It’s surreal.
After that, Theo graduated from kindergarten. I cannot believe he’s going into 1st grade and will be 7 at the end of the summer! What happened to the adorable little toddler I had? It was a cute little ceremony. The kids all wore caps and gowns and got a little tassel to take home. They sang a few songs and then got a diploma and a new adventure Bible! Back in the classroom the teachers had gifts laid out for each kid – a little water pail with a shovel that had all kinds of goodies inside! I am truly going to miss this school and the wonderful teacher’s he has had. There were lots of hugs and tears as we left, everyone wishing us well in Texas. Also! Theo has lost 4 teeth! We had to pull 2 to make room for the adult teeth, poor kid had a rough time eating with no teeth on the bottom for a few days. I tried to get a picture of this but he always wraps his lips in so it doesn’t work so well. He’s now at his dad’s for the summer – 8 whole weeks away! I miss him already.
Adeline turned 10 months yesterday. She is sort of crawling, pulls herself up anywhere she can, and walks while holding on to things. I think she’ll be walking before her 1st birthday! She has 4 teeth – 2 on top and 2 on bottom. She loves to chew with them and to grab the spoon when we feed her. She is a little resistant to solids, still loving the purees. Trying to transition her to more table food but its a slow process. And she has a tiny stomach! She has thrown up a number of times from eating too much. Sigh. It’s a joy. But overall she is still a happy baby and we adore her. She says “dada” but no “mama” yet. Little stinker. Big talker. Very loud. I think she may out-talk her brother some day. Ha. That’ll be fun!
I have something every weekend on my summer calendar. It’s gonna be crazy! And we’re getting ready for a trip down to TX to house hunt in about 4 weeks. Not gonna lie, its a little stressful. But we still have lots of time to go so I’m trying not to worry too much. Hubby and I are really looking forward to our trip down. It’ll be exciting to find a place and to get a feel for the city. And Nana is watching the baby for us so we’ll be kid free for 4 whole days (2 of which will be spent in the car)!
Lots and lots going on and so much to do! It’s a busy summer!
