The last few days have been filled with trips to Disneyland, basketball games, searching for a wallpaper pattern for Samantha's bedroom and eating meals out way to many times each day. We have gone to Coco's, Chinese, In and Out Burger and ordered Pizza. Twice.
Not exactly a good schedule for a gal who is trying to eat healthy and lose a little weight.
I'm planning on staying home tomorrow and doing laundry and trying to get the house put back in order. I'm also going to plan a few healthy meals. Tonight I was so rushed we had scrambled eggs and pancakes. The kids seemed to like it.
I went over to the High School today and officially un-enrolled Tyler. He is suppose to start on Tuesday of next week at his new High School. I have been praying daily that it will be a good move for him and that he will like it. I think I may be more nervous about the whole thing than he is.
Our agency received 3 referrals today, all little boys. That puts us at #68 on the overall list. At least we are making progress.
We made the decision a few days ago to increase the age range of the children we are asking to adopt. We had originally wanted to adopt an older child but our agency did not want us to disrupt birth order. Paige will be six in July so we changed our request from 0-4 to 0-6 years. I am much happier with this request. I really felt God leading us to do this and I am so happy we have done it. I mailed the paperwork off this morning to our home study agency and they are going to write an addendum to our home study approving us for this expanded age range. It should only take about a week to get all the paper work done.
I am really excited about this change.
Here is a picture of what greeted us Sunday morning as we left for church.
Seems to be the handy work of a few teenage girls.
They disposed of their empty toilet paper rolls in an artistic way on the boys truck.
Aww teenagers.....you just gotta love them.
