Busy as always

Life is as busy as always, the kids all going in separate directions, but a joy to us. Jack is working a part time job, getting ready to graduate..which i should blog on separately. They have raised $40,000 so far for the graduation party..and yes that many zero's is accurate..graduation here is big, really big.
Alex has applied for a magnet school which specialises in maths and science, only 120 kids can go and over 800 apply, so we are keeping our fingers crossed but also trying to reassure him if he does not get in, he is still an a and a+ student and should be proud.
Ben is enjoying being on a basketball team and doing well, loving school and being contrary, but growing up fast.
Cara starts a job at ARM in a week, which will bring her to sensible hours and better pay, so we are all excited about that.
I am taking on a booth at Wimberley market, it is open the first Saturday of each month March to December, which will be fun, selling my cards and scrapbook pages. we are all going down tomorrow to paint it. the boys enjoying painting which should be great fun.
Allan is busy at work and home. he has lots of projects to get on with, I am redoing my family room, the Chimney breast is painted and now for the walls. he wants to build another tree house and join the two with a wooden slatted bridge. I have projects for him, like cartridge lights for my Texas tree, and app for the iPhone, painting, redoing rooms..we are moving jack to Ben's and making it a mini apartment, Alex to Jacks room and Ben to Alex's room..the guest room is being left alone!!! This is not straight forward, as they all have 'stuff' and the boys want to have their rooms decorated in a certain way. Allan is going to make a high bed for Alex, like Dave and he did for we are all waiting to see how he progresses with a lot of projects and not enough time!!
