Summer is trying its best to make its mark. Lately, we have had record heat in the upper 90's! That is just too hot for September. This too shall pass. I want to go to apple orchards, play disc golf, and once again ride in my un-airconditioned van without passing out!
We continue to wait on the home buying. We do have reassurance that the people who want this house still want this house and are just waiting like us to get released from their current home. It is a great opportunity to build up my patience muscles. We continue to show the house, just in case, so keeping the house tidy is top priority.
Lessons are going well. We have managed to do work each day. We are even excelling, I would say. I was proud of the youngest two, who have been doing a good job with their individual studies. I am working on training them to be more independent, like their big brother.
The cats have been working on a peace treaty. Dorothy has not granted Giles a full pardon for invading her space, but he can at least be in her presence for short periods of time if supervised. She forgets her manners unless reminded. I am very happy to have reached this stage. I see progress!
Jeff loves his new job. The hour and twenty minute commute in the hot van is worth it, says he. I am very thankful for this, as I personally would have a problem with such a commute!
That about wraps up the status of my life, lessons, cleaning, keeping cool, and waiting.
Here are some pictures I took on my phone this week:
