Whew! What a whirlwind. I know I am very behind on the blog, but it's been hard to catch a breath. In early June, we attended Jack's Kindergarten music concert, which was very cute. Jack seemed to know about half the words and hand gestures. He likes the music, but he's not much of a performer.
And before the second:
I started my new job on July 3...So far, it's been pretty boring, with just me and the custodian in the building. It's paperwork and reading this month. I can't wait until the teachers and students come back in the fall and things get interesting. In the meantime, we've got our house on the market and have started looking for new houses.
This past weekend, we took a break and went camping at Kalaloch in the Olympic National Park. It's a beautiful area, and we could have spend far more than the weekend there. We'll have to go back again. We had the dog with us, which meant the National Park trails were off limits, although luckily the beaches were still open to us. Next time, we may have to leave the dog home so we can explore more, but she had a great time this time. The coast was teaming with sea otters out in the waves, but really, really hard to get a picture. We also saw whales spouting water, but they wouldn't surface for a good picture either.
While all of this has been going on, we've also been attending karate twice a week for Jack. He earned his white belt so far...Sam has been coming too. Not sure if the boys will continue, but they've been enjoying it for now.
Hard to believe it's July 10 already. Lots more busy-ness to come this summer, much of it not very much fun! It's packing time.
