Many times over the past few weeks I have thought of witty blog entries or status updates, but I have had no time to write them. I don't really have the time now, but I am sitting down to exhale.

Our house is on the market and we should start showings in the next few days. We are so excited to sell and move onto more land and to a little less hustle and bustle. Getting the house cleaned up, emptied out and repaired everywhere has been keeping us very busy. This house has not ever been so neat and tidy since we have lived here.

We are also in the throes of the end of the school year: both ours and the kids. The kids definitely are having more fun with their parties and such and us with our state science exams. We finish the end of next week.

Our good friends who live in Virginia stayed with us last week and it was so fun to be all together again. My mother-in-law left yesterday and Jup leaves tomorrow for a very important family wedding in DR that I wish we could all go to. My parents come next weekend to celebrate Jove's 6th birthday.

Certainly the two biggest developments around here that are both a couple of months old at this point is that Miranda is potty trained and Jove is reading books on his own. After 6 years (with a month break) of changing diapers, I felt like uncorking champagne when Miranda became a big girl. Jove is a super-reader and we have started keeping track of all the books he reads independently (30 so far) and he says once he has read 100 he wants to have a cake to celebrate.
Yay for peeing and reading all by yourself!!

Congratulations!!! Those are so exciting feats. And I love Jove's idea of having cake to celebrate his 100th book read.

Good luck selling your house! I remember when we went to sell ours we finally did all the projects we'd been thinking about and the house finally looked awesome - and we didn't get to live there anymore. We learned our lesson and are doing more with the current place.
