What else have I been doing besides counting tea bags? Not too much the past couple of days. The boys are finished with school~ yeah! The last bit of our personal belongings were packed up and shipped out on Friday. Nate had his Boy Scout Court of Honor on Saturday evening. It was very nice with many boys being recognized for all their hard work. Nate earned 6 merit badges himself. That brings him up to 14 total. Way to go Nate!
Scott left on Sunday morning for a conference in Orlando. While he is there he will be taking a day to fly up to DC to look at base housing on Bolling AFB. He will also be meeting with a realtor and hopefully looking at a few houses. What a whirlwind side trip for Scott. He will make it home on Saturday evening ~ his birthday!
Today the boys gave up some of their "summer" vacation time and they volunteered at the local animal shelter. Nate needed some community service hours for another merit badge he is working on so we headed out after breakfast in our grungy clothes and got to work. Actually, the boys did all the work and Lilymei and I looked at the puppies and kittens. Lily LOVED it! Unfortunately I didn't bring the camera....no pictures this time!
I'll leave with a few photos from the last couple of weeks, mind you the last 2 photos were taken before the house was packed up...the house is so empty now.
Lily eating a pooh shaped cookie. We had to borrow the neighbor's rolling pin to roll out the cookie dough...ours was gone already.
