Moving and a bicycle

This summer is going by in a flash!  We have been having a lot of fun, but have also been quite busy planning for our move.  It seems that we are getting closer to having everything settled - our move date into the house we are renting and a renter for our house.  I'll be happy when we are moved and settled in and life can go back to it's normal hectic way!

We've been packing up the house bit by bit and trying to get rid of items we won't use.  Surprisingly, we use most of the things we have in our house.  On the plus side that means that we have been doing a fairly good job of managing our "stuff" over the years, on the minus side it means that we are pretty much average when it comes to amount of "stuff" we have.  I always wanted to be one of those minimalist people but I guess that will have to wait - maybe I can achieve that when the girls are off to college, but I doubt I'll ever be able to live like that.  The really good thing is that we are no where close to the people I see on the tv series Hoarding:  Buried Alive!  Watching that show helps me put our possessions in perspective ;-)

I'm probably be offline until we are all settled in the new place next month.  I'm sure I'll have a great update on Emma's great bike riding skills :-)  She received her Freedom Concepts Discovery bicycle from The Variety Club last week!  We are BEYOND thrilled that Emma received this gift and hope to put a lot of mileage on it very soon.  Unfortunately, she can't ride it until we receive the spacers for the pedals (her feet are a bit too short to reach both pedals) that should come in about a week.  While we wait we are planning all the great places for a bike ride.  Can't wait to get it up and running.  Thanks so much Variety!!!!!!
