Since I am getting back into old school blogging I thought I may as well try a week in review. Mostly because I have a pretty terrible memory and these kinds of things are good at keeping track of the little things that I wouldn’t normally remember for very long.
+ FROM THE WEEK +
+ I went to the second book club some ladies in our church are doing on Tuesday, the book we are reading is You Who, honestly, I’m not a huge fan of the book. But, I haven’t finished reading in yet so I don’t want to say much else, maybe it will get better. Right now my biggest complaint is that she doesn’t go back to the Bible enough.
+ Wednesday morning our social worker who did our home study came with another social worker, the one we will be working with for our first year. So many workers!
+ Thursday I went to a church Bible study, we are going through Finding God Faithful, it’s the story of Joseph and has been incredibly good. I didn’t get any of the homework done from last week since it was our first week with Buzz and Woody but next week is a break so I’ll do some catch up.
+ on Friday I took Buzz and Woody to the doctor, by myself. We waited in the waiting room for over an hour (it was closer to two hours) and I was questioning my own sanity. The boys weren’t bad they were just kind of all over the place. Also, I was reminded how much I want to look like a good parent (aka have kids that behave nicely), I have a feeling fostering will eventually break that. Also, free health care is great but sometimes you pay for it with long wait times.
+ this week I finished the first thirty days in the reading through the Bible in ninety days plan that I’m doing and I am still.on.track. This is a personal record!
+ Friday evening we had some of Jared’s family over (the ones that could make it, we did invite them all) for birthday cake for Rae’s birthday . . . which was pretty much a month ago . . . I’m always behind things with her birthday because it falls close to Thanksgiving and also because I’m not a good birthday party planner.
+ I found a bunch of other old school blogs to read, comment on and follow! I will probably share a list in my next newsletter.
+ I made a batch of gluten free playdough for the kids. The recipe I use only has cornstarch, baking soda, water and food coloring and comes together quickly.
+ QUOTES & SCENES TO REMEMBER +
+ Me: “Thank you Ephraim!”
Ephraim: “You’re welcome, will you stitch me a friendship quilt?”
What does he even know about friendship quilts?!?! Or quilts in general?
+ When the two social workers were over Buzz was eating a snack at the table and took both of their hands and pretended to pray and then said “Amen”. It was adorable.
That was fun to reflect on my week, hopefully I can keep up with weekly reviews for a bit because I know it will be nice to look back on over the years.
SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER!
Hi Friend, I would love for you to sign up for my seasonal-ish newsletter! I would love to send it monthly but I feel like in this season of my life that will probably not happen but I would like to commit to sending one out at least every three months.
In the newsletter you can expect little (or big!) life updates, what I've been reading in the Bible, and all sorts of resources I've been loving and lessons God has been teaching me.
