wow-to catch up

It seems my life is like that a lot lately. Lag behind and then have to hurry and catch up on everything. Some might say "you just had a baby." Some might say "you have 7 kids!" Some might say "you are just busy." But I say it is just because I am so tired of everything and have no drive to get anything done.

so quick update as best as I can.

We've finally started making changes in the house. We had moved Kaitlyn into my office (after I purged about 60 yards of fabric!!!) and then had decided to split the bonus room into 2 bedrooms. one for Bella and Lexie and one for Harrison with moving hannah in with Kaitlyn.

After talking about it and realizing that the girls would not get to play in their room as much with Harrison on the other size due to noise level, Kaitlyn decided it would be better to split the bonus room into a bedroom for her and then one for the other 3 girls..(the larger side) and to give Harrison the bedroom she was in. So we painted and got all his stuff moved up there and I am still working on decorating in there.

Now Kaitlyn cannot decide if she wants her own room or if she wants to share with Hannah. We have allowed he to make this decision on her own, so she is taking her time and weighing the good and bad about it. Once she decides , we will put up a faux wall and re-tape and texture and paint in there and then get them all moved. We may wait until June when the boys are gone to do that...it will be easier then.

Conner made it to districts in track. I am so very proud of him. I got to se him in his local meet a few weeks ago and he looked so good! He won his 100 meter dash heat. It was great. ... but I am so glad track is over right now! LOL
Yesterday, he came home and told us a girl asked him to go the end of the year dance with her!
It has started already. Pretty scary! LOL
Kaitlyn is ending her days at elementary school and will be going into middle school in August. She is pretty excited. She has been atttending a bunch of "girl parties" lately as all her friends are doing. the last was a hawaiian luau.

The rest of the kids are good. Harrison is growing and he needs to slow down. I want my baby back. He is sitting and trying to stand. I am about to box up all his 3-6 months shirts and am so sad. He still wears his 3-6 month pants though so I can hang on to those for a bit longer!

Shawn is busy with work. And I am just trying to decide if I want to start school this fall or next. I have a wonderful opportunity for full coverage of my tuition and books so I have to decide what program/school.

ITT has a great computer forensics program and the College of Idaho has a Crime in Society minor that I am trying to decide between. They each have their pro's and con's. If I choose ITT I could start earlier as it is an online program and I would not have to be away from the kids while they are young-and that is a very important consideration. Bella doesn't go to kindergarten until next year....so I keep going back and forth trying to decide.

Either way, I am very excited to have this chance.

I've still been knitting up a storm. Just no pictures to show right now.
