We are surviving Daddy being gone. I am actually surprised the kids are doing so well. Alexis is a bit snotty with me though telling me no a lot and being stubborn about doing things for me. So she has been loosing privileges for it and it seems to be helping. Megan is jabbering up a storm and is just cute. She says
hi dad
ses (Alexis)
hi and waves at everyone
one two (after I say it)
sit (to Rudy)

and probably a few others that my sleep deprived mind can't remember. She is getting all 4 of her 1 year molars right now, I guess in the long run all at once is quicker just not easier the poor little baby is not wanting to eat, but is hungry so she is nursing a lot.

Alexis is in swim lessons and is coming along well. On the first day she wouldn't float on her back without looking like a chuck of wood, it was funny to see her so stiff. Now she will lay her head back and let her teacher help her relax. She will dog paddle about 10 feet real well and does bobs where they have to go under all the way and blow bubbles out. She is kicking with straight legs and just all around doing better. I hope by the end of next week that she will be really comfortable with the floating and other swim stuff. I wish that the summer had been different and I could have put her in one more session, but it just couldn't happen.

Britt is starting to like the job more in Alaska. He is surprised at how the guys up there haul cars, not in a good way either. He has been trained so well by my dad and the others he has worked around for the past 10 years that he feels he has a lot to offer the company. We are trying really hard to figure out a way to get us up there. I sold my piano yesterday which put a big chunk of money towards the move. We are trying to decide now if we head up there and leave our house empty and try and make it for the next year or so with no renters or if we try and rent it. Renting is so stressful for me and leaving it empty is so tempting, but it will put a strain on our finances. Oh decisions to make sometimes being an adult is no fun...although I am sure Alexis at nearly 5 feels being a kid is not fun either because your mom is always telling you what to do!

It's hard to decided what to do. If you do rent it out make sure you use a good rental company or person. It will make such a difference on the kind of renter you get.
