Wow…’s been a while since I’ve posted.

I guess I should give you all an update.

I’ll break this down into categories….

Health: Dad is still sick. He’s down his all time low weight and getting over a cold. He’s on a new therapy of SBO, soil based organisms. So far it doesn’t seem to be hurting him.

Farm trip: We went on another farm trip. Yay! We like going there. : ) The boys threw tires over the grain storage areas. Phew.

They sure got dirty doing that. The girls had to be content with not throwing big wet and smelly tires and worked in the farm stand. They rearranged the tables, plants, and weeded.

Our fall trip: We’re working on making our house ready for us to leave it. This includes a BIG pantry clean out and frig emptying. We’re eating lots of freezer food, too. My goal before we leave is to totally reorganize the label the kitchen items in the bus. I’m discovering the real key to being organized is very simple. Everything has a place and you put things BACK in their place. The problems come when nothing has a designated space and no one puts things back because there is no space. I’m hoping labels will help me.

Other things that have been going on include studio work. We have a cd which we will be listening to the whole trip and hopefully find all the little problems spots that need tweeking before making the master. We are really behind on the graphics but we have a picture we want to work with at least. We might have settled on a title. I hope we have. It’s kinda of related to our first album name, Honey in the Rock, and it a direct quote from a song in out current repertoire for anyone who cares to guess.

Oh and...for anyone who wants to know....the best level to set the volume level on your portable audio device is 75db. 55db is too low and you WILL be laughed at when you complain you can’t hear the music when someone talks or a car drives by. : P

We had to leave our chicken with our friends. : ’( It’s kinda sad but it’s only for 6 weeks and she’s in good hands. A few minutes after we left her I saw a fruit fly and I thought Henrietta-Drumstick (like the name? :D It’s either one, depending on who you ask. : P ) would enjoy it. *sniff* I had to remind myself she was gone....for now. We are suppose to pick her up again when we get home. :)

Our little bug eater....she eats them right off the front the bus, dried up and everything!

The guys can get her to lay on her back.

Mom can make her go to sleep real quick. :-)

Quality time goodbye time....*sniff*

Last but not least, thank you all for your prayers. I’ll try to post one more time before we head out to Philadelphia, the first stop on our trip, on Thursday.
