Catching up September 26, 2012

I am going to try to catch you all(if there is any:) up on things that have gone on during the last year that I have been absent. First, as I said before we moved to a larger home and out of the small town we were living in. I miss the small town feel but I am glad I don’t have to drive an hour to get anywhere anymore. Princess was excited about the move but also upset that she would not be going to school with her friends anymore. We didn’t have any kids in the neighborhood so the only friends she had was at school and she never hung out with them after school. Sweetie took everything in stride. She was in our new home for about two months before she was reunited.

Speaking of Sweetie we still keep in contact with her and her mom. She visits us about once a month. They are struggling, so I provide respite for mom when she needs a break. Sweetie’s behaviors can be very challenging at time and for a single mom I am sure it is very hard. She is a great kid, but has been through so much in her short life. I pray for them often.

After praying and talking with my hubby we decided that I would be a stay at home mom for awhile. It was a big decision but I am so glad we could do this. We have three kiddos in our home right now and with all the running around that I do I am glad I am able to have the flexibility to meet all my kids needs.

We have two new kiddos in our home. I haven’t decided what their names will be but they are two brothers. One will be two next week and the other is three. They are a joy and I have fallen head over heals in love with them. But I will talk about them more on another post.

We did have two respite placements during the last few months. One sibling group we had for four days. They were brothers ages 3 and 4. Then we had another respite placement for two brothers who stayed for two weeks. They were 8 and 11 years old. So it was a busy summer.

We started a new church in April and became members. Princess and the boys love going and hubby is very involved with choir. I have yet to find my niche in the church. I enjoy going and I like the people I just am more quiet and like to take my time getting to know people.

Well that is all the catching up I am going to do today. I am sure I will add more when I think of something. For right now I am off to do laundry duty. YEAH!!!!! Well until next time……
