Just a quick update because things are pretty wild around here....

Mollie made it home from camp on Saturday.  She had a great time- even better than last year!  We really appreciate all of the donations of time and money that make this camp possible.  I am amazed at how well it is put together and how much all the kids look forward to it and enjoy their week at camp.

I also enrolled Mollie in the Christmas in July program through The Blanket Fairy.  A wonderful volunteer "adopted" our family and sent a surprise package of goodies, including handmade tutus and hairbows for the girls.  They loved all the goodies and played with them all afternoon yesterday.

The focus for this week is the move- the packers are coming tomorrow!  I am getting more frenzied by the minute.  The kids want to play games and do projects and I simply can't do that while getting ready for the movers.  If I give them specific tasks (take all the magnets off the fridge and put them in this box), they are very good at doing it.  But a lot of the work is simply organizing.  Right now they are watching The Sound of Music, so I better take advantage of the relative quiet!


  1. Good Luck! You'll have to let me know if you end up liking the company you go with or not, i'm in the middle of trying to decide on a company for the big move. Don't forget to send the new address!

  2. Sarah,
    I don't mean to minimize this and I'm sure it is beyond crazy, but this move is "nickel and dime" compared to what you and the family have been through in the last two years. I wish you all peace and serenity in a mad and stormy sea.
    Mollie, I'm happy that you had a great time at camp. You MUST share some stories with me!
    I hope that you ALL enjoy your new venue.
    See you in Tahoe!
    Love you all.
