One more week of school, one more week of school

****Sing it with me now***One more week of school!!!! I don't know who's more excited, me or the kids!!!! I LOVE summer (bummer deal for a gal that lives in the Arctic)!!! And I love when my kiddos are home with me! Let the good times roll.....

K. started a new job yesterday...still at the North Slope on a 2 weeks on/2 weeks off schedule, but now it is day shift!!! Horray! The last year of him flopping from days to nights every 2 weeks has been hell! Not only is this a bit of a promotion but it is a HUGE quality of life improvement!!!

2 weeks from today is the Narnia Birthday bash!!! It's slowly coming together. So far I have the invites done, I have recieved the winter scene stuff, a life size cut out (picture the stand-up things they make to promote movies) of Aslan, a lampost, Narnia passports are on the way, a cake with a computer image of a movie scene on it, uhm.......I can't seem to remember what else. I need to find some Turkish delight or something similar, plates & cups & such, scavenger hunt stuff, & make the wardrobe (out of a fridge box). I'll keep you posted.......

Life is just so busy right now....the last week of school always is, picnic & parties & awards stuff & conferences. I need to try to fit some sleep in there somewhere!! :) And yes, that means life has been so busy I have been neglecting my blog & haven't been reading my bloggin buddies works as regularly.... for that I do apologize. Although I must admit, I did a bit of blog surfing last night & realized I have way too many blogs bookmarked. There a bunch I still love, but there are a few I frequented in the past that now I think "WTF?". Everyone has the right to say what they want on their own blogs, but there is some crap (stuff that is just over the top in a sexual nature, excessive liberal shit & so on) I just don't need to be bothered with, KWIM? I guess I have just reached a point in my life where I need to weed out the stuff that 'gets to me' & concentrate on the things that really matter. So I will be making some changes to my favorites...well...I guess I just got off on a tangent, eh? LOL

Anyway, have a great weekend & I'll leave you with this photo...Ijust took this from my livingroom window. When I am getting all bummed about living so far away from everthing & everybody, I look out my front window and all is well! (Sorry about the poor photo quality.....we are south facing & have a pretty decent glare going on)

Lata.....

What an awesome sight to have right outside your window! If that's not a daily reminder of how awesome God is - I don't know what would be. Glad all is well with you. Congrats on K's new job. I worked nights for awhile remember? They sucked big time! Do you think they would move the pipeline to Ohio? Just thought I would ask. Love you bunches! Can't wait to see you all!!!!!!

Wow your kids get out early!! We have two more weeks and I thought we were finished early!! Love the view out your window. Justin and I were just talking yesterday and he said, "maybe we should just move to alaksa" because we LOVED it when we took a trip up there. I think my parents might disown us though! They are mad we live seven hours away now!!
