I was sick for a few days. Thankfully it was just headaches and body aches, not the flu. Praise the Lord. And the kids didn't seem to get it, though Kevin had it as well. We were both very tired.
I took the week off from school and thought I'd get a lot done. Which didn't happen. Being sick didn't help. Caring for Rosy Posy was, as usual, fairly exhausting because she's a high energy girl.
However, we did get a few things done. I specifically wanted to START working on clothing needs for the summer and sure enough, I started.
I managed to heroically cull some of our DVD's and books. That doesn't come easily, but I got rid of at least 75 books and maybe 6 videos?
Rose makes me chuckle. She has all these toys she adores so she has now found them a plastic tub so she can haul them ALL around.
And here is her 'submarine'. Please observe the crack so she has air. We are careful.
Tuesday was WARM. Like 70 degrees. We spent hours and hours outside, which was good.
Naomi's college courses are going well. She is a hard worker and organized.
Lydia is also doing well in her freshman English class. It has helped a lot that Lydia has her license. My weeks are much easier now that I don't have to drive her to class. Of course I pray for her and Naomi, that God will keep them safe.
We have made the fairly momentous decision to try and sell our 'big van'. It is a 15 passenger that has served us well, but now that we have 4 drivers, one of whom is full time in college, we are using it all of once every 3 months. We almost always take two cars to church as different people go to Sunday school and service.
Given that we are paying insurance on it, and it is worth a fair amount (still) we've decided it is time to pass it on. For our occasional trips to Michigan, we'll either have to take 2 cars or leave two someones behind; but again, with both Naomi and Lydia being full time in college next year, that's not unrealistic.
Or we can take two cars.
Of course, we have to sell it. What kind of crazy needs a 15 passenger van???
