Getting Ready for G’ma and G’pa Knepp

Posted in Family, and Thoughts

Grandma and Grandpa will be heading to our neck of the woods on Friday. We plan on going to the Evening Parade at 8th & I on Friday evening. I’m sure we’ll head over to Carl’s Ice Cream on Saturday and to the Officer’s Club for brunch on Sunday. Munchkin is looking forward to their arrival. We’re continuing our decluttering quest. We’ve been seriously sorting and going through everything in the house. Room by room, box by box, the house is in the process of getting re-organized. We figure we’ll get everything done by the time we’re ready for the…

A Glance into this Past Week

Posted in Family

We’ve had a busy week and weekend. Here’s a brief recap…. On Tuesday, we headed over to Art from the Heart (a great pottery place) to participate in the homeschool craft for the day. Nope, I can’t say what it was as it may spoil the surprise for someone 😉 We had a great time as always. This is one of Munchkin’s favorite places to go. On Thursday night, I helped set up and stuff over 160 bags of school supplies for the kids at the back-to-school party. These were just bags from the people that donated school supplies. I…

Back to Work

Posted in Family, and Thoughts

D headed “back to work” this week. He said goodbye to Henderson Hall and headed down to EWS at Quantico. It’s nice to have D’s commute time cut way down. He’s also, for the most part, going to be home earlier in the day. At the same time, he’ll be doing a lot of studying which will take some getting use to. Munchkin is having a hard time adjusting to Daddy being home, but having to do work. We may need to adjust our schedules a little to keep her busy in the late afternoon/evening while he’s studying…. We’ve been…

Sports Camp

Posted in Family, and Thoughts

Munchkin started Sports Camp this week. It’s basically a cross between regular sports camp and VBS. She signed up for cheerleading. She’s having a blast! It lasts from 9 am to noon. Every day, the come home with a review sheet to complete. If they complete the review sheet and return it the next day, they receive an iron-on patch for their t-shirts. Once they learned their Bible verse for the week and recited it to their coach, they received an award. Munchkin said her verse today. She was extremely excited to learn the verse yesterday and wanted to have…

D had knee surgery on July 18th. All went well though he was a bit out of it for the rest of the day. The next week had it’s ups and downs. Today, he went in to have the stitches removed. He is now allowed to put weight on the knee. He’s hobbling around now — hmmm… we may need to get a cain of some sort for him. He starts up at EWS next week, so it should be interesting…..
