A Moment in Our Day

 Being our letter of the week T
Still being T's after doing our Turtle magnet activity

New idea that is working out wonderfully.  Blanket time. Toys have to stay on the blanket and so does the child for a certain amount of time.  I usually make it the time of a lesson for one of the big kids.  It is helping out immensely!  And helping to keep some of the chaos to a minimum.  Not a lot, but some. 

Flubber!!  We made this today and it was so easy and fun.  Try it soon, no really. DO IT

'til next time,

Sunday Snapshot

Swans a swimming, dwarfs, days of the week, our family.

What do all these things have in common?

That's right!!!  The number 7!!

After a year of stops and starts, ups and downs, country changes and craziness.  We are finally able to say with some certainty that the number of kids in this family will be growing by 1!

Our application has been approved!  And our social worker will be here next Thursday to decide if we are fit to add another little one to our family.

We are heading to China this time to find our newest little nut job.

I guess I should be more clear.  Brian is going to China. I am going to stay home and pout take care the mounds of stuff and old, no longer shiny new, still semi-cute, kids here.

Which is totally fine.

No, really.

 Seriously, I mean it.

Who would want to go to China and see their new baby for the first time.

 Much better to wait 2 weeks.

It's fine.

Anyway, moving on.

I would be lying if I said that I am not totally EXCITED (not about the paperwork)!!!  I really thought after the last year that we might just be done.

But hey, where is the fun in that???!!!

I can't wait to see who we have in store for us!!

'til next time,

And I'm Back......again.

I seem to have a problem with sticking lately.  Sorry about that!

Believe me, it's not just the blog.

As Ki was so quick to remind me today, I had promised a special treat on Mondays to get us started with our school week.

That was about 3 months ago.  And I haven't done it once.

But he does remind me EVERY Monday!

Love that kid, love that kid, love that kid.

'til next time,
