Look who got all wild and crazy on you! It's me! I figured out how to change my blog! I are smart! ha! Well look out now...now that I know how to do this it might be changing all the time! Or not...we'll see. Anywho...just thought I'd jump on here today and play around a little. I've been wanting to do it for a while but it just has seemed to be so busy...but...we finished our last home study meeting today and turned in all of our paper work so...yea....we are part way done! That feels like a huge load is lifted off my shoulders...there was so much crazy paperwork and it feel like you have to jump through so many hoops but I know that it will be worth it! Now we just have to do some workshops, go to a couple more meetings, create our Dear Birthmom letter, and create our picture book....which I think that will be fun to do...or maybe I'll stress over it...yeah...maybe a little...I'm kind of a perfectionist when it comes to something like that...but it will be fun. This whole process of adoption is really exciting and scary all at the same time. Right now it seems like a lot of stuff to do but then in a month or so we'll just be sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. So if any of you out there know of a mom who isn't quite ready to raise her child, please pass on our information to her...we'd love to meet her! After I get my scrapbook done I'll try to take a few photos and post them on here for you. Moving on...we had a fabulous weekend. My time down in IL was super fun catching up with Adam and Katie and getting to know Lucas and Emily. Lucas wasn't too sure of me at first but by the end of the night I even had him sitting on my lap for a bit. Thanks for a great Friday night guys! Our trip back on Saturday was fun...it's always a good time when I'm with my mom and dad. We stopped at this cool little market...they had a greenhouse and a natural foods market all in one...I wish we had more time to spend there but I did manage to pick out some really pretty flowers. I'll post some pictures on here later of them...once they bloom a little more. And Memorial Day was good...we pretty much cleaned our house to get it ready for the home visit today by our Adoptive Parent Counselor (we passed by the way!)...but we did take a little time in the afternoon to go fishing with one of Jon's buddies and his son. And that's about it. Nothing too exciting! Well I'd better get going here...Jon is on his way home and we are off to go get our new couch and loveseat! Our carpet looks great by the way...maybe I'll post a picture of that too...some other day. Here's a few pictures from my mom's 50th Birthday for you now...sorry mom...I was a little late in getting them on here (her birthday was March 31st!). Have a great week!
Mom with her basket of 50 things!
Make a wish!
