Let me start off by saying that I got the call - only to be told to expect a call. *Ahemmm. Whatever.

Anyhow, we have had the most beautiful weather lately. It's actually HOT in my house and I had to turn the air on last night for a while. We are all home together today. We ran errands all morning and now the kids are napping. Ahhhh, silence. Seth has gone back to Lowes to get a few trees that we are going to plant in the backyard. I am so excited. We desperately need some shade. We had a really nice tree back there a few years ago that dies when we had a bad drought. I was so sad. Last year we planted a crate Myrtle and now we are afraid it has died too. Lord, I hope not!

When the kids get up we are going to dye Easter eggs. When I told Lydia that this morning she asked "why we had to die?" haha. The innocence. I love it. I also told her that this was the day that Jesus died for our sins so that we could go to heaven. She just looked at me and said, "Awww, poor Jesus. Why did he have to die mom?" She cracks me up.

We have some fun things planned for the weekend. Tomorrow my Aunt Pat is coming to town. I cannot wait! I think we are going to take the kids to the zoo in the morning for an Easter egg hunt, although I hear it is mayhem. I suppose I will suffer through it for them. Sunday morning we will do a brunch with family and a friend or two. We are going to go to noon mass. Oh, and of course the Easter Bunny will have paid a visit by then. :) Sunday afternoon "The Gays" are coming over. I am sure we will play cards and just catch up. We LOVE our time with them. "The Gays" is a group of 5 guys that we have known forever. One of them is Zachary's Godfather. They are dear friends. The kind that would walk to end of a cliff, swear to jump with you, count to three and then wave goodbye from the top as you were falling. Haaaaaaaaaaaa. Only kidding. Seriously, they are some of our very best friends in the world and Lydia and Zachy think they are the BEST! We generally spend every Easter and Thanksgiving together. It's a special time. Maybe someday I will tell you all about my gays. That would be a fun post!

I will leave you with a very hard, outside - playing baby boy...

  1. Hi Katie!!!
    What a crazy ride you are on... again. :)
    To answer your question... we were advised to only take girls in our home. The foster child will be sharing a room with my daughter who is almost 4. In our state (I don't know if it's the same everywhere)a foster child cannot share with the opposite sex after the age of 5. They were afraid of us having a long term placement and then having a five year old sharing a room with a foster childi of the opposite sex. Does that make sense? I absolutely did not want to only take girls, but I don't know how to get around this. I did tell them that we would love to take boys. Our SW told us that we could only take boys if they were short term, but that they never know how long a placement would be. That's how we came to the conclusion of only girls... which sucks. Any suggestions? You can email me...
