Life Lately...Again...

We are plugging along and drowning at the same time over here.  We are pushing through daily life and all the fun extra end-of-the-year events.  BUT we are missing Daddy big time and counting the days until we make the big move and put our family back together.

In other news, Bubba, in his 4-year-old mind, thinks we will always live separately and, depending on the moment (whether he's in trouble or not!), switches his wish as to living with Mommy or Daddy!  It will be a rude awakening come July when he no longer has that imaginary option!!!

Last week Bruiser and Sassy were in a local program called "Chance to Dance".  It's a year long dance program in the schools where the students learn and choreograph their own dances and then put on a big performance at a downtown theater.  They did amazing (in spite of Bruiser having a tough time during rehearsals!).  I'll post videos on a separate post since they are on my issues!

The very next day was Bubba's last day of preschool in Rhode Island.  It was a big year with lots of growth for him.  He went two half days a week and learned all about how school works...and loved every second of it!!  We're not sure what next year will bring - the local preschool is full and, while he qualifies for district preschool for speech, OT and academics, I'm not sure how I feel about that school location being 20 miles away!  Welcome to the country!!!  So I'm weighing my options and thinking about what I want to do.  Right now I'm leaning towards home-school preschool and driving to get his services.  We shall see :)

The next day Daddy came home for the weekend!  It was rainy and chilly but we were all smiles picking him up :)

We ate out a bit (because Mommy refuses to do those things on her own!) and when all the kids have to go to the bathroom, Mommy enjoys a few minutes alone with a very yummy drink!

We spent some time sofa shopping and ultimately went back to our first choice - IKEA!  And luckily I made it there with the help of a good friend to make the purchase on the final day of the Friends and Family sale that saved us 15%!  Now we just have to wait until we move to unpack it :)

There were fire pits, grilling out, trampoline disassembling (moving prep!), and lots of quality time :)

Monday we headed to a very rainy Memorial Day parade with friends and then took Daddy back to the airport...again...

This time hop of my Sassy was six years ago...such a sweet little face!

Then, as of today, I got my act together and we have a countdown!!!!!  37 more days until we head out...and it can't com soon enough :).  Bubba and I spent today buying bins for the things the movers won't take - bedding for the first few days, perishables, etc.  Daddy's in the process of meeting our new pediatrician, arranging for the installation of hardwood floors in the bedrooms of the new house, and settling into his new job.  

Our house that has been home for the past 10 years sold so quickly, has past inspection, and has been purchased by the relocation company (who will sell it to the buyer).  It has not been easy but all the trials are being rewarded now!  

So that is life as of day to day but anticipating big changes and exciting adventures!
