Tim and I both worked most the day on Saturday at the school. I was actually really happy with the things I got accomplished. Usually I have an unachievable list of goals to accomplish on Saturday and then feel upset when I only accomplished the realistic amount. (Yeah I know I need to remedy that.) Tim and I both have an extra nudge to get our planning completed for next week because we get to chaperone a trip to Wasilla. We leave Tuesday after school and won't return until Sunday. I'm really looking forward to the trip and will be even more excited once my sub plans are completely written. We are taking a well-behaved, fun group of kids. On top of that, it will be nice to have a little break from the village and school.
Well enough about work, how about an adoption update? Things seem to be going well. Tim and communicate with the birth mother regularly and we still feel really blessed to have her as the birth mother who chose us. We wish that we could spend more of our days shopping online for baby stuff and rearranging our apartment to make room for all that baby stuff. We'll get there. Meanwhile, it's been so fun to receive packages in the mail from excited grandparents-to-be and aunts-to-be. I've included a picture of just of few of the gifts we have been sent. Thank you. Thank you. It's a little bright spot in our day (actually a big bright spot in our week) to receive a package in the mail.
Last night Tim and I had Heather and Kim over for dinner and games. I was so happy to have them come over. It was good to relax, eat, play, and laugh. I told Heather and Kim that it was much needed therapy. What a blessing good friends are!
