Too busy to blog.

I'm baaaaa-aaaaack. You can't believe how busy I have been. I (with much, much, much help) prepared my old house to be sold, sold it, packed up all my earthly possessions, moved to a new house, unpacked most of our stuff (not all), had a new patio put in, are in the middle of having a fence put up, went shopping a couple of times for stuff needed in the new house, totally redid the planting beds in front of the new house, fixed the sprinkler system, am planning(with my boys) a fort to be built in the next two weeks and I am wondering how am I going to place the large boulders I will need for my pond and waterfalls (also in planning stages) after the fence is installed. Whew!
Other interesting things of note: Niece Shayla is living in a castle in England for the summer as part of a study abroad program. Niece Sarah is in Italy teaching the children of US military personnel.
So much going on and not enough time left in the day to blog. Last night Bruce and I sat down and relaxed together in the evening for the first time since we moved. I checked my email and found the following gem from Soupa-sista.

Judy got married and had 13 children. Her husband Ted died of cancer. She married again and she & Bob had 7 more children. Bob was killed in a car accident 12 years later. Judy *again* remarried.... and she & John had 5 more children. Judy finally died after having 25 children. Standing before her coffin, the preacher prayed for her. He thanked the Lord for this very loving woman and said, "Lord, they are finally together." Ethel leaned over and quietly asked her best friend Margaret, "Do you think he means her first, second, or third husband?" Margaret replied...."I think he means her legs, Ethel."

Hope your summer is going well, we love our new house. Luke is at the swimming pool about every minute it is open. Levi is with friends all the time, fishing or playing baseball.
