Life is stuff

LOTS OF STUFF! We've had our first week with no school - and it's been busy (not to mention whiny and bratty too!) Does anyone know what happens when 8 kids are given a chore to clean out a room? Well, I know what happens now! It's not a good idea.

I don't know when or how or especially why we've collected the 'stuff' that we have in boxes and totes and piles. It's got to go. I've been to Goodwill already with a van load and there will be more by the end of the week. It's actually a pretty good feeling to get rid of things that we don't use or need!

Tim and the boys have also been working on putting up the crown molding in the addition. It's absolutely beautiful! It just totally finishes the room and makes it look awesome! I will post pictures of it soon.

Tim downloaded the pictures from the camera for me - I added another picture of her accident to the post below.

Lots of Life this week!

My sister Erin and her husband Matt had their first child - a girl - last weekend! She is absolutely beautiful and her name is incredible - Alida Marie. Our Granny Pennings' name reversed! Granny would be so proud! I'm sure she is looking down at Baby Alida and smiling (and knitting, most likely - I can't imagine Granny Pennings without knitting!)

There's some graduating going on today and tomorrow - Dallin graduates from Elementary School today and Tyler graduates from Middle School tomorrow. That means I'll have 3 in high school (and early morning seminary!), 2 in middle school and 1 in elementary school next year. Thank goodness Kirsten is still at home with me! What would I do with all that kidless time during the day??
