So Long Summer

It's so cliche to write, but I will anyway: where did summer go? I cannot believe this is Labor Day weekend! Today was the last day to enjoy summer flex hours at work so I took advantage of it and left at noon. Lots of weekend plans -- farm, working on the house and visiting Shawn's parents on Monday.

Uncle Doug, believe it or not, once this weekend is over our house should be ready for a for sale sign! I know you've long doubted that it would ever happen but dang it, it is! :)

One of my good friends is moving into a new house this weekend and she totally motivated me to get ours on the market. I have been looking at houses all summer and have a favorite list with about 40 on it so I am very confident that when someone buys ours we will have plenty of great options from which to choose.

Clearly I've been a blogging slacker this summer -- many reasons but one was technology caused. My trusty old laptop that I bought used from my former employer for $100 is crippling along and so slow that I can hardly stand to use it. But this week I had a brilliant idea to use my tablet with it's little keyboard to blog. It's working like a charm! So I am hoping to get back into a regular routine.

Here are some recent photos to catch you up on our comings and goings:

Last Weekend Was The Annual Buddy Walk To Raise Money For Gigi's playhouse. Here's Grandma Katy With A Few Of The Grandsons Who Attended. They Were dancing To the
 Gangnam Song... 

Halfway Through the Walk Theron Wiped Out In A Mudpuddle Causing Quite A Commotion As People Rushed To Her Aid. I Took Photos. ;)

I Don't Know If This Will Work, But Google+ Is Always Doing Funky Things With my Photos, Including Making little Gifs Like This Of Mazy's First Day Of 4th grade photo.
