All tuckered out after a long morning at the parade

OK, it's that time of year again here in the Cranson household- time for the clean out your crap challenge! This is how it works: every day for one month, everyone in the family must get rid of 1 item. You can throw it away, give it away, or give it back to the person you borrowed it from. It could be anything from something as small as an old receipt or pen to something big like a piece of furniture. My kids actually loved doing this last year, and it really forced us to question our stuff and decide what we really needed or wanted. This is especially important with a large family living in a small house, but any size household can benefit from this challenge. I encourage you to give it a try!

Let's start the rundown, shall we?
Why the Washington State University logo, you ask? Because I have been accepted to WSU for fall semester!!
Navigating the ins and outs of financial aid, transferring credits from the community college, and just trying to figure out the university system in general after having been out for a while is all quite overwhelming. But, that's not all folks.........
Bella has just been invited to join the pre-team! This completely came out of left field to us as her coach hasn't said anything to give us indication she was ready to move on. She's trying to decide now if she wants to leave her friends and coach she's been with for two years and move up to the next level (which would put her close to her goal of joining the cheer squad), or if she would rather switch over to ballet instead as she seems to have a natural talent for it. But if you think that's all that's going on here, you are wrong!
A vendor has asked to sell Archys at AquaFest in Lake Stevens! The festival is at the end of the month, and Jeremy is in overdrive to get everything ready.
Of course then there's the whole matter of Isaac just having had surgery, getting ready for our annual trip to the lake house, getting ready for out of town family to come visit, oh- and I recently discovered I'm allergic to caffeine (what a horrible thing to be allergic to!), which means I'm doing everything without stimulants! Yikes! Hopefully soon I'll have some time to upload some fun summer photos of the kids. Until then, keep your fingers crossed I make it through.
