normally a title would go here

Several of you have emailed asking if we have a dog yet. No, not yet. We're praying still and talking and it will happen...probably within the next month.

And about those placemats I'm going to make. I still want to make them, but haven't found the right fabric yet. I've been to Walmart and Hobby Lobby, but they didn't have what I was looking for. I've polled some friends, and they've all said I need to make a trip to Jo-Ann's. Unfortunately, I have to drive 35 minutes north or east and I haven't found time to make that happen...so therefore the placemat project is on hold. I promise to show you the finished project when I get them finished!

Yesterday afternoon, Sarah and I made an apple crisp and it was delicious. We had it for dessert last night and there is NONE left. I don't normally make dessert, so I can't even begin to tell you how excited my children were! Sarah did great and she's trying to figure out what to make next. I don't know if you can tell from the picture of the apples, but they're super small. It took me 30 minutes to cut 5 cups of apples...and I didn't even peel them! It was tedious, but worth every minute of time it took!

Our weekend is looking pretty uneventful. I'm thankful since it's the last one before school starts. We need to do some shopping (tennis shoes, clothes, etc) and I'm hoping to head to Denver...because the mall is close to Jo-Ann's! I still have the crafty urge and I really think I need to act on it before it passes me by permanently!

I need to answer some questions on my blog too, but for now...
No, I'm not going to homeschool. Yet. Mike picked up paperwork today to register them in the public schools.
Our house hasn't sold yet (pray pray).
The moving van pulls out Wednesday!
More details to come...
Do your apples smell wonderful? I think the smell is my favorite thing about them.

Mmmm...homemade apple pie. Yum! You have ripe apples already? Wow! The apple picking season will start around here I think in October, maybe late September. That's always fun!

I'm going to pretend this has e-mail power and answer your question here! I grew up with an Air Force dad. My mom's family is all from there and my dad's family summered there. So after my dad retired, they moved back. They live sort of close to the Academy. He ran for the election (2006) against Lamborn. You mighta saw the signs, "Rayburn for Congress." :)

I hope you find the right fabric for your place mats. Too bad you have to drive so far for JoAnn's. I can't wait to see the finished product.
