We are getting ready to head west in the morning. I have been doing laundry and packing all day. At this point, if we don’t have it, we don’t need it.

We are going to BC, and will be back in about a week and a half. I doubt if I’ll have a chance to post while we are gone. Here are a few notes from our family for you to think about while we are away:

1. Carter wants to know: do you HAVE to kiss when you get married?

2. Tyson and Colton both passed their Hunter Safety courses, with flying colours. The instructor told Lyndon that she enjoyed the boys, and appreciated their interest and attention during the course. When you homeschool, you don’t get to hear a lot of positive things about your kids, so THANKS Tracey.

3. Lyndon and I have decided to apply to become foster parents. We met with a social worker earlier in the week, and have started the application process. This is something we have talked about doing for a while, but we wanted to wait till our children were a little older, and now they are.

4. Both of our mama cats are pregnant. Perhaps there will be kittens when we return.

5. The boys had their pictures taken yesterday, by Tami Foss from fossfotography. I nagged them all day, and made them change their clothes and brush their hair until they were, quite frankly, a little grumpy. I was worried that they would be unwilling and uncooperative when Tami was here, but they rose to the occassion and posed like pros. I can’t wait to see the pics.

Okay, break over. Time to finish packing and get the kids in bed. See you in a couple of weeks.
