Octavia is going to be a princess for Halloween. She is getting into character by ordering the neighbor boys to pull her in the wagon and stand guard when Anakin comes with his light saber (good choices Kaleb, good choices). The boys here are little gentlemen and are always opening her doors for her and asking her if she needs anything. It really is adorable. Tavi also watches as many princess type movies as she can which helps her prepare for the role of damsel in distress. Fortunatly we are intermingling them with star wars so she when she gets in trouble she can wait for the prince, or shoot her way out with her blaster--a girl has got to keep her options open. Octavia still asks when we are going to move back by Jeanette, to which I have no answer because it breaks my heart. I think on a whole the kids are adjusting though and I am very proud of the way the are willing to try new things.

The bugs here are merciless-it is easier to see the red blotches than Kaleb's legs. Thank goodness for deep woods OFF!! Though I may as well add that he is outside with all of his free time having a blast, so they are more like battle scars to show where he has been. There are bugs here that are huge, and I must say I have never seen before. Perhaps that is why they feel it a pleasure to enjoy our newly found southern hospitality and stay snuggly all over the house. All joking aside, the people in South Carolina are very kind, and everyone has been more than polite to us. The church is true no matter where you live.
Chad works fourteen hour days and is getting the hospital whipped into shape, and I am at home with the kids. Kaleb is going to school and is in heaven as the school has a sand box, and a few other star wars crazed kids to play with. We are still missing Bremerton, but as my mother says you bloom where you are planted, I just hope with all the fried food out here, I bloom upward, and not outward. All is going well for us and we are still finding our strength in the Lord, and pray you all are as well.

Today as we were out trying to enjoy this nice day we did our bi-monthly shopping and saw a great deal on BBQ’s. SO we went and got the truck and are now the proud owner of another BBQ. Oh how the food tastes better on a grill. After dinner we decided that we would play games. It was duck, duck, goose, so after being made fun of for being so old and not being able to sit criss-cross applesauce it was game on. After a few rounds we remembered that you can always substitute other words in, so it was chicken, prince, garbage head, smelly feet, and so on. So on Tavi’s turn she walked around and it was duck, duck, and goose no I mean chicken, duck, goose and Katherine was it. Octavia decided that after she was half way around that she would run a little slower claiming that she was so tired (now walking) saying get me mom, get me. Katherine now on the floor laughing so hard she could not move. What a great night to enjoy those childhood years. I almost forgot what funny things they say.
