For those of you who aren’t very familiar with adoption nothing is final until it’s, well, finalized. That can’t occur until a certain time frame after the birth. (To my knowledge that time frame can vary from 10 days to 6 months after the birth depending on the state in which the birth occurs.) Technically, nothing is legal yet, and the birthmother could decide not to go through with it. Tim and I feel comfortable that she is set in her decision, but it definitely wouldn’t hurt to have a few more prayers in her direction and our own.
Nothing else really seems worthy of mentioning after that announcement. The rest of our week is going to pale in comparison. (I’m 100% okay with that.) Tim and I worked liked crazy. We were at the school between 7:00-8:00 am each morning and stayed until 6:30-7:30 pm each night. I think we would have worked earlier (and maybe later too) if we both hadn’t been feeling a little sick still. Tim seems to be mostly better and now that it’s been a week and a half I think I might be able to say I’m getting better too. (Crossing my fingers here.)
Today was extremely busy with church callings. Tim started church at 9:00 am this morning and I didn't get off the phone with church related things until 3:00 pm. I was recently called as the primary president. I’m trying to figure out what I’m supposed to do and trying to figure out how to train everyone else on what their jobs too. There’s definitely more responsibility being the president and than a counselor.
We had some friends over for dinner tonight. I like having time on the weekend to socialize with people and share a meal. We had the Crabtree family over as well as Heather. (We missed you Kim.) Nate is our new vice principal. He and his wife have two kids. Nate's kids taught me all sorts of things about how cool our coffee table is. I had no idea that it could be a bed, an oven, a pet shop, a truck yard, a dinner table, and a trampoline. We even had an imaginary food fight with all the pies (throw pillows) that were cooked in the oven (coffee table). It’s fun to watch the imagination of kids at work.
Tim and I are really looking forward to Labor day. We’re going to go into work for the majority of the day and attempt to get caught up. I say attempt because I know in reality we will never be caught up.
