The Boring School
Tyler seems to like his new school. His only complaint is that the school is full of "nerds". People are nice, just a little "strange".

He said that one kid walks around with 6 decks of cards in his pockets.

Well, maybe that is a little different.

However I still prefer the "nerdy" school to the previous high school.

God has blessed our decision to move to the new school. One of my main concerns was that this school is 30 miles from our house. Those of you who have kids know how hard it is to get them all to just the most basic of activities on time. Traveling 30 minutes each way was going to pose a large problem.

However, our God has it handled.

We take two days a week and another family takes the other three days. I only have to pick him up on Mondays, another family brings him home on the other days.

Yeah God! This is such a blessing.

In adoption news; Our agency gave out 10 referrals at the beginning of this week. That means our magic number is now 58. That is our overall number which doesn't really tell us all that much. Those in front of us could be asking for a different gender or age range. We really have no idea.

It is fun to have a number, and count down as referrals come in. I mailed of the addendum our social work did for our home study today which means we are now approved for 2 children up to the age of 8. Our agency doesn't place out of birth order (generally) but I really felt God leading us to make this change to our paperwork. Now it is all up to him.

I pray everyday for our new children. I can't wait to hold them in my arms.

It has been kind of a stressful week with some things going on that I can't share yet. A friend of mine sent me the picture below this week. It made me laugh.



A trip to the spa sounds wonderful right about now. However, I think I am going to have to settle for a nice hot shower until I can work that into my schedule (and my budget!).

I can't believe how fast you are moving up on the referral list.

I'm coming to California next week. I'll be in the Bay Area though. Just thought I'd let you know...in case you have field trip plans in the area :-)

Score on the carpool situation! How come whenever I get into a carpool situation it always ends up with me as the ONLY driver?!? And you know my history in school parking lots......

I went to a high school that was 30 miles away for 3 years. I drove two of those years and got a ride 1 year. It was far, but not ridiculous. I'm glad you have some help with the commuting.

I like that number 58. It doesn't sound too high.......

Where in California are you? I was born and raised in So. Cal.
