Where did summer go???

(official first day pictures to come on Monday)

I'm officially the mother of a high school student...and I don't like that feeling!!  Brooke's growing up WAY too fast.  Today was an all day orientation for freshman, everyone else starts school on Monday.  The day started off with having to get up way too early, I'm still on summer time :-)  We had to be at the high school for a student/parent meeting at 8am where I was informed by Brooke that I was not to raise my hand and ask any questions (one of her friends' parents did and got the glare of death from her daughter!).

After the meeting, Lexy and I left Brooke at the high school and went to Lexy's school to meet her teacher and drop off her supplies.  Her teacher this year is a friend of mine and Lexy really likes her so I think it will be a good year.  Plus her teacher had chocolate bars on the desks for the students, nothing like a little bribery :-)  Lexy told me that she didn't need me to walk her into school on Monday morning, her exact words were  "I'm six years old you know!".  Ugh I need some more little ones!!!

Speaking of little ones...We have gotten two new profiles to consider (from our worker). 

The first is for a boy (3.5 yrs) and girl (2.5 yrs).  These two are real cuties.  They have minor issues (tantrums, asthma etc.).  There may be a relative interested.  We told our worker we are interested.

The second is for two boys (4 and 3).  No picture.  They both have some pretty severe existing medical/developmental issues.  We told our worker that two with that severe of issues is just more than our family wants to tackle at this time.

So at least we're getting profiles to consider.  Hopefully soon we'll have some little ones in the house again!!

Doesn't seem like we can possibly be old enough to have high schoolers!

Hi there! My name is Stephanie. I wanted to introduce myself and see if it's okay if I follow your journey. My hubby and I are in the process of adopting through the fc system so I'm trying to connect with others that have or are going through the same process. I hope that's okay. You have a beautiful family and I look forward to following your amazing journey! God Bless!
