Yard Sale and other random stuff

Off and on since I quit my job (I ended working on the 29th. It was a great day to have as the last day of work.), I've been organizing our place for the yard sale that's coming up. I gave away all of the maternity clothes already, and to the same person a bag full of baby stuff. But then there's the rest of the baby stuff, the clothes that I've grown out of/shrunk out of, the lotions that haven't been and never will be used, the bracelets and necklaces I've had since I was 15 and need to get rid of, and much more. And this is just in the attic, my closet, bedroom, and bathroom. 

Every time I walk into Malachi's room and look at the toy closet and the toys all over the floor I walk right back out. That room scares me. 

On the school front: school this semester is hard! I'm enjoying the English class, but it's really challenging me. I am learning quite a bit from it and am happy to be doing so. 

Coen is waving, it's really cute. This morning, as soon as I walked in the door, he started waving at me. I love it. 

Malachi's been doing Tae Kwon Do in school, he loves it. If you see him this summer, be sure to ask to see some moves.

Simon is talking up a storm! Prepare yourselves family...

We leave Costa Rica in less than seven weeks. This is both good and bad. I'm excited for our journey in Manila, but I love my life here so much that I don't want to go. I'm so glad I feel this way, rather than the opposite. I fear the days when I hate where I live. 

I think I'll go check out the kitchen and see if there's anything to sell there.

I've been loving Manila, and most people love it here too, specially those with kids! Do you have your housing assignment yet?

Feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions -- we've been here almost a year!

We were informed that we'd get our assignment in April or May. We'd love to have our assignment before packout which is the third week of April.

I will contact you if I have questions. I'm also friends with the Ogleys. My husband was in A-100 with Kevin. We've asked them quite a few questions.
