As promised, here are some pictures of the house in progress -- they've been bringing in more dirt this week, which is very much needed -- because of the slope of the lot and the floodplain issues, we couldn't dig very deep for the basement.

I'm doing pretty well with the packing -- about an average of 1 box a day. I've hit a block with my own scrapping and just don't feel like doing it.
However, I am creating like crazy. Above is my (almost finished) School Days kit. It has been so fun to play with.

We took off for the weekend for a short vacation, but I still managed to get some things done -- above are two more layouts, both using my Animal Attraction kit which can be found at Scrapbook-Elements.
I also finished my Dream Build kit! I already started some layouts using it, and it's going to be so fun!

Dare I post updates every day? In any case, yesterday I got 1 box packed and 1 layout done -- this spring one of my kids using Mish Gasser's April Showers QuickPage set at 1HourScrap. Today, I have yet to pack a box (but I plan on it), but I've got 2 layouts all done but the journaling.

Yesterday, I got TWO boxes packed and 1 two-page layout done -- shown above. I used my "Beautiful Girl Page Set" available now at Scrapbook-Elements for this layout of Sarah and her little curls.
Today, I packed one box and I finished the backgrounds for my new "Dream Build" kit. I can't wait to finish this one -- it should be great for the millions of photos I've got of the progress on our new home.

In the meantime, we are enjoying our current home as much as possible -- we've been out wading and floating in the river nearly every day for a month. Allison loves the water, but Sarah prefers the safety of the wading pool in the yard.
With four weeks to go, I've set several goals for myself -- besides keeping up with the kids and dressing the babes ten times a day (they are in a stripping stage, and we've had to put packing tape on their diapers to keep from shocking scenes like the one below).
Goal #2 Catch up on my family's scrapbooking. I've been neglecting this lately, and there probably won't be much time for scrapbooking once we've moved. I'd like to get one two-page layout done every day for the next two weeks and see if that gets me caught up.
Goal #3 Design, Design, Design. I've been feeling in such a creative mood lately; I've got a bunch of stuff in the works that I want to finish up. I'd like to get my Grubbies 1 & 2 CDs up at SBE as soon, finish a Canadian Day kit I've started, and do some more updates to some of my older kits. Wish me luck. =)
