I know you were wondering.
We had a really wonderful time with Troy's family in Utah.
We survived the 40 hour drive home.
I have done nothing but clean, go to doctor's appointments and shop for school since we got home.
I hope after the kids get back in school I can actually sit down.
For the record, in the last week we have had five kids visit the dentist (one more to go -- next week), 2 kids visits the pediatrician for shots and physcials (four more to go -- 1 next week), fours kids visit the orthodontist (2 more visits in the next two weeks as Emma gets her braces on), and we also have the audiologist next week and the eye doctor.
That's what I get for leaving home for seven weeks.
We have also cleaned, cleaned, and cleaned some more. And sadly are not quite done.
The storage room has been organized. The garage has been cleaned. And I have started some home improvement projects.
Photos of the rest of our summer as well as before and afters of the home projects are forthcoming.
Don't give up on me yet. : )
