Regan decided to finally spend some of her money. She is my saver, but she liked the luau stuff at the dollar store...so she still didn't spend much :)
The kids received a special treat in the mail this week....tons of postcards from Tennessee! They loved looking at the pictures and reading the messages from all their friends back in Knoxville. Benjamin just knew all of the stadium/football ones were for him, but they split them as equally as possible.
This is Lillian, Lauren's favorite teacher at church. I wanted to get a picture of them together. If she doesn't have Lauren, Lauren will find her and back herself up into her lap.
After church on Sunday, some of our friends had a going away picnic for us at the park. The kids got to play on the playground, sprinkler park, get faces painted (Regan a butterfly, Benjamin was Batman, and Katherine a pink cat), and they went to the petting zoo. Needless to say, they were tired and ready for bed by the time we got home.
Benjamin got to hold a bunny from the petting zoo. His face just lit up. He has been asking for a pet for at least a year now. A bunny is now on his "that would work" list, but what he really wants is a dog. He even has finally convinced his sisters that it is a good idea...(that's really saying something if you know Regan...she has never been a real dog fan). Maybe one day.
So, as you can guess from the title, we have been packing our bags once again. We leave this Wednesday!!! We are very excited. We will do our best to update the blog as soon as possible, but it may take us a week or two to get an apartment and internet hooked up. Please remember the kids during the long flight and adjusting to a new time zone. We'll see you on the other side of the date line!
