31 Months & New Year's Resolutions

I have been very good at following blogs, but very lax at writing my own. So for 2009 I decided to write that in as part of my New Year's Resolution. Which I also never do! So here it goes:

- 1. Participate in CK's Project 365 - Take a photo everyday, of every day life. I really want to get back into photos of my kids and think this is the perfect way to accomplish this.

- 2. Stay current with this blog, it is my habit to check google reader every day, but for the life of me I can't seem to write consistently. I know the more I write the better I will get, even if no one is reading it!

- 3. Lose 5-10 pounds, I know this is on every one's list, but it really needs to happen before it becomes an even bigger problem.

- 4. Stay on top of my house better. My new iroomba should help in that dept.

- 5. Work on my albums, I want to get proficient in digital scrapbooking.

And in the adoption front we are at 31 months today! Yesterday saw another batch of referrals, Hurray! Congratulations to all those that got the call and shared it with all of us still waiting.

Homeschooling and scoping blogs!

We have entered the crazy, but fun world of home school this year. We felt that it was a good time to try it with our girls. Our girls have always had great teachers, but with recent changes in curriculum and all the testing we decided we should see if it would be a good fit for our family. We have had a great time and I have learned so much, like how to make butter!

We don't have much to report on the adoption side of things, just that we wait. We have been scoping out all the great blogs out there, and they give us hope. Enjoy the photos as we approach 28 months. Who would have thought.

2 years! Wow I can't believe it!

Really, I can't believe we have been waiting 24 months for our little girl. In that time my girls have gotten older, J & I have gotten older!!! We've gotten a dog, a cat, a drivers licence. Wow if we had only know then what we know now. I guess thats how most things work though huh?

23 Months and updated photos!

Just thought I would jot a few notes on 23 months. We just continue to wait and pray, we wait for news and pray for our daughter. I have had more people ask lately when we are going to give up! I just smile and say when my daughter is home, we just can't give up on her.

To help with the wait J finally relented and let us get a Yorkshire Terrier two months ago. We named her Sophie and are enjoying her so much. She loves the kids and enjoys going everywhere with us. Our cat has been good with her and they now have daily wrestling matches.

Twenty Two Months

Here we are again! No new news, just thought I should keep this poor neglected blog updated. I hope someday to have some good news to update and finally share this blog with family and friends.
