Things have been wild here; here's a quick look:
1. We're moving!
We found a darling rental house that is an extra 600 square feet + a huge backyard + $300 less per month + we're not sharing it with anyone (a first in many years). Done deal. Bonus... the yard has a mango tree, plumeria tree, key lime tree, lemon tree, and shares an avocado tree with the neighbors. We move on Saturday. Packing is underway.
2. Jackson is crawling!
This house comes at the PERFECT time since we have a very active crawler. We can let him loose on the wood floors and in the huge grassy yard without too much concern.
Two nights ago we were putting the kids to sleep; I set Jackson in his crib and Braj was reading to Acacia. I turned around for a minute and Jackson pulled himself up to standing in the crib (which was still at the baby height). Braj set his book down and said, "I'll get my tools." He lowered it right away, thanks babe!
3. Another summer trip!
We got to spend a few days in Orlando with my little bro and their awesome family along with my parents and grandparents. It was a doozy of a few days, even without Disney, but it was fun. All this travel is finally beginning to loosen me up with the kids. They have been very good travellers and I am so proud of how flexible they are.
4. WWDD? What Would Dave Do?
Still drinking the Dave Ramsey juice. Just finished paying off our student loan; it only took about 3 months. Gonna tackle the credit card next. We watched the documentary Maxed Out last night. There's one quick snip with some language, but I would recommend it if you want to get a glimpse into the credit card companies and collection agencies. Stay away from those guys!
I don't know how much blogging I'll be doing this week, but I'll try to at least get some before/after pics up.
