It's actually Darcie's turn to write, but we have both neglected this blog lately.  I think the main reason is that we've been so busy house-hunting here in Utah.  It's been a fun, but tiring experience.  Darcie and I went out with our realtor 4 different days, and saw close to 30 homes.  Many of those homes are just a blur to us now.

Then, last week, David came out and as a family (with the realtor) we visited 5 potential homes and narrowed it down to 2 favorites and now we are negotiating the price of our top pick. With a bit of luck, we'll soon own that home.  We look forward to the day our furniture will be taken from storage and brought to that home. It has been over 5 months since we sold our house in Canada and put most of what we own into storage. That is the longest we have lived without our furniture and belongings.

Meanwhile, Zach has submitted his mission papers and we eagerly await his mission call. Where will the Lord send him? Europe? Latin America? the U.S.A.? It's anyone's guess!

Marcus is currently obsessed with Calvin and Hobbes. His best friend is a stuffed tiger and he takes him everywhere, talks to him and re-enacts some of the comics.  On Easter morning, he asked me to witness a race, him against Hobbes, from the bottom to the top of our stairs.  He counted to 3 and then tossed Hobbes to the top of the stairs, so of course Hobbes won the race.  Then he accused Hobbes of cheating!

The girls will finish up their school year this month, and I'm going to call it a year for Marcus as soon as he finishes his math lessons in his Math-U-See book. I think he has 5 or 6 to go.  It's been a crazy, but successful homeschool year. I feel so blessed to have the option and freedom to homeschool my child.  It has certainly been a lifesaver this year as we've moved twice and are preparing to move a third time.  Can you imagine how difficult and challenging the transitions would've been if we would've had to pull him out of one school and reintroduce him to another school in the middle of the year?  Homeschooling allowed us to maintain some sense of stability throughout the stress and upheaval of moving.  3 cheers for homeschooling!!!
