I am late getting this up because I have had the BEST day. My son came home for the weekend to celebrate his birthday and brought his girlfriend. We have done fun things all day and ended it with a big family dinner. My niece drove up from college and brought her boyfriend. Our table was full and fun and just missing one thing...Jared...well he was sort of there, we skyped him in!!! I love my family and enjoy every minute we get together!!
here's my week:
We finished our 30+ hour training today for foster care!!!
Today's training was so good. We had a panel with foster parents, a judge, and a woman who grew up in foster care. It was great to hear their stories and then be able to ask them questions. Now to finish up all our paper work.
A couple of my neighbors are getting "Booed"!
Getting off a care package to Jared and also a package I have been promising Elizabeth for oh....just about 4 months. I am SO BAD about getting things mailed!!!
Yep, I voted!!!
Had blood work and a physical done today....another thing to check off the foster care list of to-dos. The worst part is I had to get a flu shot in one arm and a tetanus in the other...ouch!!! Man, it's a good thing you only have to get the tetanus every 10 years because that baby HURTS!!!
My niece is coming tomorrow for the family birthday dinner, so I made some of her favorite cupcakes to take back to college with her.
A tradition in our house is that you eat all your meals on your birthday off the birthday plate. So we started the day with pumpkin waffles for Jason.
The kids wanted to carve pumpkins today...very fun!!
Hard to believe my boy turned 21 this week!
We also celebrated Kayley's birthday (september) and mine (next week). My kids each wrote me a letter, which was by far the best gift!!!! Love them!
Can you believe we are at the end of October?!!! This year has gone by so fast....crazy. How was your week?
