These last few days have been busy for us all. As you know we are at our base in Fort Worth right now. We have been here most of the summer enjoying the grand kids. Now as summer break is drawing to a close, it is anything but dull.
The 2 babies started back to the regular sitter today, while the 3 older ones will be trying to make the best of the last days before school starts in a couple of weeks. Karen will start tomorrow getting her first grade classroom back in order for 22 anxious first graders. I will try to help her as much as I can. I love going and decorating her bulletin boards. Friday, I am going to Arlington to Zachary's school to help sell school supplies. Then next week we will have the 3 older ones to do some special things with them prior to school starting on August 25.
Once next week is over, Mark and I along with another couple are going to Las Vegas for a few days. We found one of those great deals and decided to take advantage of the offer. We will fly out early on Sunday morning and return to Fort Worth late on Tuesday. Three days in Vegas is great and we are excited to go out to Hoover Dam and check out the progress of the construction of the new bridge. I will have plenty of pictures.
And, in the mist of all this going on, we continue to try to get as much stuff packed in the motor home as we can. When we return from Vegas, we will be making final plans for leaving to make our way to Memphis to take delivery of 53506. We are both so anxious. Today I have been doing some packing. It is amazing how much stuff we have collected in this 38' Dutch Star. I have tried to clean out as I have gone along, but not much has gone in the trash. Guess I think I still need all the stuff I packed. Maybe I will weed out a few things when I unpack. We will see.
I hope all of you are having a great week and for those traveling, we pray for you a safe journey.
