Still Waiting


So, we still don't have a place. We kept our stuff in the moving van for another 3 days hoping another place would pull through, but the place ended up being a 2 bedroom . I can't imagine all 5 kids in one bedroom, so we ended up putting stuff in storage. We have been staying at Eric's parents in Wenatchee taking a couple trips over to find a place. We are waiting on applications and will hopefully have stuff figured out by the end of this month. Eric left today for 10 days for his first two externships in LA, so it is best for me not to think about our future or I get sort of overwhelmed between taking care of the kids, being homeless, and being almost 34 weeks pregnant. I am so grateful for our families and all their help.
Eric has been wanting to take the kids camping before his trips, but we haven't been able to yet. So, last night we got everything ready and the sites were too expensive and it was too windy. Anyways, we ended up "camping" at my in-laws. The kids loved sleeping in sleeping bags, roasting marshmallows and hotdogs (in the fireplace), and making banana boats.
Trav with his umbrella hat.
They had some flooding at Eric's parents house and Aubs did her part cleaning up.

Tanner with his "baby." Aubree and Tanner are always playing house together. Aubree was pushing Tanner and the baby in bike stroller.
Andrew is almost 10 months old and is as nice as ever. He is all over the place.
