Passport is here

So his passport arrived yesterday. Yahoo!! He looks quite grown up, like a missionary.I was way stressed it wouldn't make it in time.We need it to apply for his visa. Logan also wrote his acceptance letter and got lots of shots yesterday. He was tough though and didn't cry. We've got 2 items on his shopping list checked off and about 6 on the BIG list.It's all coming along.
This amid preparing for home school. We've begun a clean sweep of the school room. This is quite frightening as I have boxes down both halls that have to be sorted. Today I have some friends coming over to plan out our school schedules. Can one person fit more in a day than I already do? I'm not sure it's possible. I'll let you know if I succeed or not.
We secured a location for our homeschool group (NorthStar) to hold a bi-monthly co-op. It's terrifically close to our home. I'll be teaching Ancient Egypt that will wind up with a field trip to the King Tut exhibit in December. I can remember seeing a Tut exhibit in New Orleans when I was about 10.I'm excited the boys will have the same opportunity but certain like everything else it will be boring to them. I've decided museums are like vegetables and piano practice, good for you. So they will just have to hold their nose and swallow if they want dessert!!
Posee spent the night. This means I woke up to sweet baby sounds. It's a great way to start the day. Emilee's kids are early risers like mine use to be. Now they've gone Olympic crazy with Howard and no one is in bed before midnight!!
So life goes on as we prepare our missionary. It's seeming more real now. I look at pictures of the boys and think. "it won't be too long before we're doing this again." That's what happens when you have a lot of boys.

Amen to Christi's thoughts on how you do it all. Do you ever take time for yourself?! I am so glad you're writing all this down as you explore this mission prep journey with Logan!
