I have 2 followers :) :)

Well we are finally biting the bullet and putting our house on the market. The Realtor is coming Monday to tell us what she thinks needs to change to get it to sell. There are some things we know and some projects that we just will not get finished before Monday but we are getting there. For those of you who live here we are hoping to sell and rent in either Myrna Manor or The Zoo. Pretty much we have always planned on sending the kids to Bessie Ellison and we do not want to worry about them revoking transfers so we are just going to make sure we are in the district. It's pretty much the area of town we will look at in a year or two to buy a house in anyway.

My brain has been slightly obsessed with putting Lilly in dance/tumbling lately. I absolutely loved it as a child and she dances around the house all the time. I am having a really hard time trying to decide where I want to put her. I do know she is starting at Studio Psalms because no one else is taking new students right now since its pretty much recital time. That's fine though...the price is right and it will give her a little introduction before she goes somewhere that will have a recital. I have been trying to find something for Brett also but I am running into a similar problem. I am going to have to wait until summer class schedule's come out. There is supposed to be a dinosaur program at the college and we are looking into that or some kind of art. He is my budding artist!

Jeff is switching jobs next school year. We haven't really said to much about this because I do not think his students know but none of them are on here so I think this is ok. He will be leaving Benton and going to Central. I am really excited for him to have some of his friends there. I think it will be good for him to have some "man time". Speaking of switching schools...we are switching Brett's preschool for next year. We love UCP but need a preschool time that is in the morning so that he will learn to wake up. He will be going to St. Paul Lutheran next school year. It will work out great because Lilly will be able to do Acorn School there on Wednesdays and I will not have to drive all over town.

Anyway...that's all the fun going on in our lives :)

I have been trying really hard to write down all the stuff I add to the trash or garage sale box....I know some of it seems like "wow, really she wrote that down" but I decided I need to take what I can get and I'm not writing down ever piece of paper i throw away so this works :)

    we LOVE bessie ellison! we are renting a duplex in the district now and hoping to buy a house in the zoo or stonecrest soon! don't know how soon you are wanting to move, but there is a duplex right down from us for rent :)

    i am looking forward to elliot being old enough to take dance. i am obsessed with her going to the dance art center for some reason. they just seem very classy. i do NOT like a lot of the costumes the girls from darcees wear!

    that is cool that jeff will be at central...that is where my brother teaches!

    oh, and i LOVE that you are getting rid of 2010 things! i should really do that, too :)

  2. ok im sorry i am just getting this comment. would you mind telling me a little about your duplex or where it is? we are planning on renting for a bit after ours sells or if it sells..
