Happy Homemaker Monday! {8/19/2013)

What a summer!!!!  Things have be extremely busy and full of excitement around here.  We got back from camping at Turkey Run State Park last Tuesday.  We had a great time.  Although attempting to camp with five kids, two of which are still babies, makes for a long few days.  But it was so much fun!!!   School is starting on Tuesday August 20.  Lucas will be attending Queen of All Saints Catholic School.  He is really excited.  We got to meet his teacher last week, and she is really nice.  I think he is going to have a great time.  Lots of good things have been going on with the shop.  Lots of sales, lots of custom items made (making these is my favorite part) and I am VERY thankful for to all who have brought from my shop, and all the support I have received.  I love you all!! Now on to my what I hope to continue as my weekly update.  :)

The weather: It's going to be HOT this week!!!  But right now it is a pretty, slightly foggy, sunshiny morning.

On my to do list: Take kids pictures for their yearly pics and the twins 11 month photos. Work on the scrapbooks. Laundry, bills, take things back to stores.

What I am cooking: It's pancakes for breakfast today!

Looking around the house: Partially picked up, but needs a nice once-over.

Highlight of the past weekend: House hunting.  Even though most were not what we were looking for it was nice to get out and keep looking.

Looking forward to this week: School starting, Lucas is excited.  And Lucas's 6th birthday!
