Overwhelmed
Feeling a little stressed:

Waiting for the documents to officially accept our referral. They were suppose to be overnighted yesterday but still haven't arrived.

Trying to plan a 90th birthday party for my mom with my sisters. To many idea's not enough time. How will I ever get my house clean before the party?

Home schooling a high schooler is kicking my butt! I think I am being to anal about everything, I really need to relax.

I have no clean clothes. Bills need to be paid. What to make for dinner?

All I want to do is sit and stare into the beautiful brown eyes of my Ethiopian children.

Why can't all this other stuff just go away?

You're bonding!! How sweet!
Congratulations!!! We'll be praying for those court dates and your travel. When we feel like we can't, God can. Rest in His direction. Do one step at a time. I'm so excited for y'all, I feel like throwing a party at my house for you!! :-)

Homeschooling a highschooler can be crazy. Don't forget that it is not totally about the schoolwork. It is a relationship. Sometimes I forget that when I'm stressed, frequently my kid is stressed as well. Neither of us think well, and both of us just want to jump ship. That might not be your issue, so sorry if I'm butting in. I am so excited and amazed to hear what God is doing in your family. You're inspiring!!

AAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaa! This post feels like my day! Nothing. NOTHING. NO. THING. has gone as planned. So here I sit using nap time to chill instead of catch up. sigh.

And please, stop mentioning those sweet babies of yours. We need pictures! Until then, you are just torturing us. It's cruel. And mean. So just stop. :) :)
