Boxes, Boxes and more Boxes. Oh and some Vick's Vapor Rub

Boxes are piled everywhere! They are all taped up except one we are taking with us. JJ was being ever so quiet this afternoon, so I took a peek at what he was doing and found him smearing Vick's all over his legs!

And after a conversation with Gretchen this morning, she thinks it weird that I have never experienced a cockroach in person before!
I have seen spiders, and all sorts of other bugs, just not cockroaches. Thank goodness!

The Three Amigos and a Sleeping Baby

The boys had a picnic in the house at Gretchen's today. The packers were at the house so I thought I would get the kiddos out of their way and hang out with our friends before we leave.

Moving Time...no tme for blogging

The movers are coming in the morning, in fact they are coming for the next three mornings. Needless to say, I won't be on the computer a whole lot. We'll have the net hooked up 'til Wednesday and then off it goes and the road we will hit Thursday morning. In Michigan, I will have limited access as my sister has dial-up. You won't be seeing much of us until we get to Wichita in mid September. Sorry folks! Sianara for now!

Sorry, I was so wiped yesterday I didn't write you anything about graduation! Thursday night we had a dinner to go to. We got the kids a sitter and had a decent dinner. JJ didn't go to bed until we got home at 9:30 so he was a ball of joy for the graduation Friday morning. He didn't do too bad according to Gretchen, but he was getting into eveything and rolling his cars down the auditorium under the rows of seats! I was so embarrassed! I think the other people were getting a kick out of it though. After the ceremony we went over to John's building for cake and orange julius' and water. It was John's idea to go to the Taj Mahal and get our pictures taken in front of that. The weather was beautiful for once. And it didn't rain until later on in the day.

Today we are cleaning and packing, not something I enjoy that is for sure! We have a birthday party to attend later this afternoon and then back to more cleaning!

John FINALLY got his orders today and went to TMO to schedule the house to be packed up. And they were able to get us movers starting next Monday! We officially leave SA next Thursday mornig, sniff sniff :(

This has all happened so fast and hasn't hit me yet. So I'll probably not be on the computer much after next week since we'll be driving back to Michigan. The plan is to have both of us drive to Wichita to drop off John's car and then he will drive us to Michigan and fly out to Spokane for his class.

Tummy Time

No not tummy time for Maddie. It's lets jump on mommy and daddy's tummies! This happens everytime I lay on the floor. JJ thinks my belly has a sign that says sit on me, or really plop down on mommy's belly with a whole lot of oompf!

A little bit of an update

We are definitely going to be sad to leave our friends in a few weeks, but definitely not sad to leave this neighborhood. A few weeks ago we heard a helicopter at around 3am. When I looked out the window it was flying pretty low with it's search light on quite near our house. Later that day it was back and when we looked out the window there were cop cars everywhere. They eventually found the guy. I believe he broke into the house two doors down and then ran some more before the cops caught him in the drainage ditch.
Then last night we heard sirens which I thought were just out on the main road. But lo and behold they were right in our neighborhood coming down the road; screeching around the corner in front of our house chasing a car going who knows how fast. There were at least 8 cop cars outside chasing after this car. According to the news he was apprehended but for what I have no clue.
I just found this link on the local news website http://www.ksat.com/news/13710192/detail.html with the story.

On a side note, we are signing the paperwork on our house tonight to be leased. John called housing at McConnell and there is no wait so we should be able to get on base no problem. Hopefully the housing is decent.

JJ has been able to spend lots of time with his friends. On Friday, we went to my friend Gretchen's house and the kids had a great time.
Yesterday my friend Janelle and her daughter Kadence were in town for the weekend so we had them over for pizza and play time. JJ and Kadence were having a great time! (So were the adults :)
It is so nice to see a friend that you haven't seen in well over a year.

Big Girl

Very happy!
Maddie likes to sit in her highchair while we eat. She just stares at all the food she will eventually be able to enjoy!
Playing with her toys in the walker.
These next two are for Anne. I dug out the T-Shirt Maddie is wearing that she had given us for JJ to wear as an infant. I forced them to get their picture taken (can ya tell?) I think Maddie would have been ok with it, but JJ took so long to get situated next to her she just got mad. In the second picture it looks like she is telling her brother off for holding her leg! I love it! (Sorry Anne, I couldn't find the booties that go with it)

This past week as been a bit crazy in the Langworthy household. John had Tues-Thurs off, but we spent most of that super cleaning the house to have it shown this weekend. We did manage to go to the circus on the 4th which was a bit overwhelming for all of us. John says we aren't going back until the kids beg and beg to go.
About a month and a half ago, we posted our futon on craigslist.com. A gentleman came down to buy it and just jokingly said would we want to trade for a weekend at his cottage on the river. John and I looked at each other and said why not. So this past weekend was spent in an adorable cottage on the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels. It was just 40 minutes from our house. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The weather wasn't very cooperative, but it hasn't been down here for the past month. It has rained everyday for the past 25 days, I believe. It is so wet, but at least we don't have to water the grass!
Yesterday we went to the children's museum in New Braunfels and today we stopped at Landa Park and got to ride the little train around the park. JJ had a blast!
