Update....

So how great was conference this weekend! I loved it and felt so uplifted! What amazing leaders we have!
I just haven't had anything exciting to post lately...I still don't, but here's an update anyway. No news on the house. We haven't had a single phone call since our last showing. We've dropped the price 23,000 to under $300k This is the lowest we will be going. If we can't sell at this price, it won't be worth it to us. We met with an agent last week and afterwards decided the $20,000 commission is just not worth it to us. So we will continue to try and sell on our own. We are trying to decide if we should pay a flat fee and be put on the mls or just advertise on craigslist and the newspaper. A funny story about craiglist. I had no idea you could only post every 48 hours. So I was posting every day, until one day I was banned! I haven't been able to post anything for a week. It finally let me this morning and you know i'll be sticking to the 48 hour rule! I've had people ask me if i'm stressed trying to do this and honestly I was for the first few weeks. But i've come to realize that it's not worth it. We are in a great house, in a great ward, in a great neighborhood and I should just enjoy that....and I am.
The kids are loving school. They just had their school fundraiser which is a jog-a-thon. Jacob ran the most laps out of his class and was pretty proud of himself. Of course Malia cried when she heard this because SHE wanted to run more than Jacob and she didn't. They are SO competitive. Cole gets a little bored in the mornings with just me. He often asks "are we going anywhere today or is anyone coming over?" He's looking foward to being in school next year. :)
Not much else to report....just the usual stuff....Adios!

It's actually really infuriating to me how much real estate agents make for so little work and so little educational background. Ridiculous. I can see why you want to sell it yourself!

My kids get super bored with me, too. But even when they have friends over, if we haven't GONE anywhere by the end of the day, they feel like we didn't do ANYTHING fun.

Cole is welcome to play with Carter (when Carter isn't at preschool)! Carter loved coming over while Alayna was at school the other day. Thanks for the playdate.
