So Much at Once

Wow I haven't blogged in a week! I can't believe it. We have been SO busy it's been insane over here.

Well, On Thurs. we went downtown to the courthouse where our Sheriff's office is located to have our fingerprints taken for the state background check and found out they only do fingerprinting until 2pm (Oh so convenient!!) and it was a quarter to three. I felt strangely like I had been there done that before! What is it with us and fingerprints? Well, I hope that nothing will prevent us from having them taken tomorrow.

We also heard that our Social Worker (SW) will be contacting us this week to schedule our Home Study (HS) visits. That is so good. I need to feel like progress is being made. I can't wait to be finished with the HS. At this point I have lost most of my nerves about what the visits will be like. I am just so desperate to do this thing that I'll jump through whatever hoops they tell me to!! I should have some more exciting news to post about our adoption progress this week and things develop. I the meanwhile Dustin and I need to finish up the bedrooms for all the kids. We've been ripping out carpets and painting concrete, adding new baseboards and crown in the bedrooms and we need to finish that up before our HS visit... so that's what I'll be doing as soon as I finish writing this post!

I have so much other stuff going on and I really want to share... but I don't have the time tonight, and I don't know how to assemble all this info into something that will make sense. God has been doing so much work in our family. The LORD is so good!!

Wow I have a naked child out back riding a bicycle... I guess I better go handle that!!

Love to you all!!

So I don't have any plans on Tues. Could you use some help with the house projects? Or do you want to drop the girls off after school so you can get some stuff done? Natalie would love to have someone to play with that's more fun than me.

It is so great to hear that things are progressing. How frustrating to go and not be able to get your fingerprints done. It will happen in God's time. When I first started the paper chase, I went crazy getting all the paper work that we would need to get it done as quickly as possible. Then our social worker said that he could not approve us for two children in our current appartment, so we went house shopping. About a month into our homestudy, we bought a house! It made the process longer, but the move was good and God provided a good house that we can afford. I learned that I have to wait on God and His timing. Now if I would just remember that...

So how did wrangling the naked child go?

HAHAHA sounds like my house. (riding naked outside on a bicycle) Except the ripping out carpets part. I am working on the girl's room now. Well shopping for now. All the furniture and mattress should be coming next month. I am sure the HS will be done soon. I am still waiting for the bag pattern.
