Update - Am I Crazy?

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Everyone deserves some time to just play. 

My new job is going great, I am in the process of learning new accounting software (I know - I'm a nerd), and learning a new industry.  This job is now taking me out of the office once in a while;  I am leaning how to conduct a Lead Paint and Pre-Shipment Inspections for items being shipped over seas. I've learned and lot and have a lot to learn.  I am really enjoying the challenge.

Well, it's official, the date has been set and the church as been reserved - Big K is getting married on January 1, 2011.  They were hoping to get married before summer and with him being in the service and family out of state that teaches finding a date was getting hard and they were getting very discouraged.  Last weekend we took a family trip to Oceans of Fun (it's a water park) and during one of our conversation with Big K and N we suggestion the Christmas holiday.  So here we are - 6 month out, no more time to doddle.  I think she's picking out and ordering her dress today.

I received a call from a friend on Monday, they are hosting a foreign exchange student this year and told me about a girl hadn't been placed yet and time was running out for her.  After reading her profile they thought about our family and asked if we would consider it, I said sure, send me the profile.  I thought no harm in reading it and chances are it won't go anywhere.  Four days later we have prayed-talked-prayed some more-cleaned out our office/stash it all room and have met with the coordinator. Our new addition to the family should arrive the middle of August.  I'll share more information as I get it.

Little K gets her senior pictures taken this week.  I can't believe she is going to be a senior and will be graduating.  Little K is a senior model this year for Captured Memories.  Here is one of her model pictures:

Now with all of that said - maybe I am a little crazy but it sure won't be boring around here for the next 11 months.  The question is - once everyone leaves next year what will B & I do with ourselves?

Have a great weekend.
