Hi everyone! Whew... it's been a busy, busy weekend! I feel almost redundant with how often I say I had a busy day, or I'm going to have a busy day, or I'm busy, etc. Busy. Busy. Busy. I'm not really complaining... yet. For the most part, I like everything that I'm busy with. Some things I've liked more than others....
Friday, these two had their first visitations with their potential adopters. I've said from the moment we got them that I didn't feel (in my heart) like they were going to be ours forever. I've always felt like we were just the bridge between their old life and new life and that I was okay with being that bridge. I still feel that way. I'm still okay with being that bridge. But, Friday, I got a little inkling, a little taste of how hard it's going to be to pack them up for the last time and say goodbye for probably forever. It's going to be harder than I ever thought it will.
This little one, hugged my leg tightly when we were dropping them off for visitations. I wanted very badly to just scoop her up and take her back home with me saying, "Sorry, maybe next week we'll be ready!" I didn't do that of course, but I still wanted to.
We got these plants in the ground. The garden isn't pretty and hopefully the cool temps last night didn't hurt it, but they're in, and hopefully they grow. We have squash, tomatoes, watermelon, bell pepper, cantaloupe, okra and cucumber. If all of that produces... I'll be stoked!
Sundays are for church, naps and fort building. These kids have never built their own fort before, so after I finished clearing away the dishes from lunch and cleaning the table, I built them a fort. OR as LG likes to call it a "fork". Either way, they had a great time and I'm glad I can teach them the "big" things like God loves them, etc. and the "little" things like forts are awesome.
Happy May everyone!
Does anyone else feel like time is flying by much too quickly?
