I can't believe it has been two weeks since I posted anything. There hasn't been anything going on here to report about, nothing exciting any way.

We have all been sick with colds. Kaitlyn came down with it first and was only sick for a day with a fever. She stayed home one day from school, but returned after one day of rest. She spent the day on the couch watching Scooby-Doo movies and napping. Dave came down with it next. He came home from work with a fever and spent the next day resting. He still has a stuffy nose, but returned to work after one day of rest. Pam came down with it on Saturday, the worse case so far. She has run a fever and spent several days sleeping off and on. The cold has settled in her chest and she now has a cough that will be with her for awhile, she sounds like she's been smoking a pack a day for the past twenty years. Wendy came down with the cold next and last, she is resting and seems to not have had a fever.

Kaitlyn has joined the Drama Club after school. She is so excited about being in a play. The play will be "Sleeping Beauty" and will be put on the first of April. She will find out in two weeks what part she will be playing. She has been such a drama queen the past couple of years so this will be good for her. Maybe it will be an outlet for all of her energy! She is so cute!!

We did receive our household goods two weeks ago!! We were so excited to finally have all of our things so that we won't be so bored. We were disappointed to see that some of our souveniours from Italy had been damaged, but most everthing else was intact. Wendy has been amazing by helping, doing most of the unpacking. It seemed like Christmas in September. We have been getting some things ready to ship back to the US. Wendy will be returning to the US and all of her things and Aimee's (since she won't be able to join us after her mission) will be shipped back to the US.

That was always my favorite part after a move was receiving our household goods! Sorry to hear your Italy stuff was damaged. Are they going to replace it graciously? Or will you have a fight on your hands?
Isn't it weird how life is changing? Aimee and Wendy are both going on their own now. Sam and Jake are going on their own way. (Both Jake and Aimee AFTER their missions of course) Life has a funny way of changing just when things get comfortable....
