Time Flies When You're Busy!

Where to begin?  Between this, that, and the other, and a few flu bugs mixed in, it seems like I have a lot of updates to include.
  • Unfortunately, we were unable to attend the all day workshop in February.  There just wasn't enough time to process our application (must have been reading all those wonderful answers we wrote).  The next meeting we can attend will be in May.
  • They called us my birthday and told us us our formal application had been approved!  Woo hoo!
  • Next we mailed them our deposit check - no turning back now!
  • On Friday, March 11th we met with our Intake Specialist at Bethany.  We left with a file folder a good inch thick full of papers we need to complete and instructions to get physicals/fingerprints/etc.  We also have about 45 open-ended essay questions to answer!  Plus we have to read 3 books and write book reports on them.  And it is all due on June 11th.  WOW!
The next three months are going to be busy, busy, busy.  All the adoption stuff in addition to the usual everyday school, scouts, & home stuff.  Plus planning VBS.  And ISAT online scoring.  And Alan's work trip to Florida.  And allergy season is approaching.  And...and...and...PRAYERS PLEASE!  :)

What an exciting time!  Please don't think I'm complaining.  In fact, as I type all of this I've got "I've Got the Joy" by the Go Fish Guys going through my head.  I've got the joy of the Lord in my heart!  Let the fun begin.  :)

  1. Katie is going to be interning with Bethany this summer. She will be doing a new program they have for safe houses - sort of a foster home for kids when the parents are in trouble, can't care for them for some reason, etc. She is excited!
