383 and counting

Our lives lately have been consumed with two things: pine wood derby cars and girl scout cookie selling.

We have 3 boys needing to make cars with dad in order to race this weekend. So its been taking up a lot of dhs' time, and it seems we are hardly having any time to do much of anything else.

Katarina and I have hit the streets, and been cookie selling. She has set her goal to 700 boxes. Yes you read right, 700. Why so high? Well its the elusive goal of a free week of camp when she hits 650. Shes hit once before and got to go to horse camp and fell in love with it. So she hopes to go again. Now that her sales totals are nearing 400, i have some hope that she just might make it. Its tough, selling the cookies themselves isnt really, who doesnt love girl scout cookies. But the sheer number of boxes to sell and people to hit. Anyone want cookies?

Off to start a new week here, i have many projects on the forefront. Mainly cleaning, some painting, and steam cleanign some carpets. Some old friends and their kids are comign this weekend and Im so looking forward to catching up with them. But id like the house in order :)

Thats all for now folks!
