Our pool plastering job is finished, the pool if full of water and we are able to swim!!! It looks amazing! I'll have to post some pics soon. I haven't had time to take any this past week because I've been furiously trying to move all my school stuff to my new classroom and finish the end of the year stuff up. I still have a bit to finish moving and will do that later in the week. AND...I'm also moving to 2nd grade. That will be a change, but I'm excited about it.
The really exciting news is that we had our individual interviews with our social worker last week. We love, love, love him!!! Barry had his interview on Tuesday and then I went on Thursday. We are both very outgoing and can talk to anyone so it wasn't bad at all. The even better news is that our joint interview is tomorrow (Monday) and our home inspection is Wednesday afternoon. Can you believe that?????!!!!! Then we'll just have to meet with the financial people, pay our fee, make payment arrangements and we will be on the list. Our SW said it won't take him long to have the paperwork finished. He will be traveling the end of the month and wanted to have it all done before he leaves. See why we love him?!!
Our Dear Birth Parent letter is done and so is the adoption portfolio. My sweet friend Nikki takes some amazing photos and was sweet enough to do some for us to use in the portfolio. We already had lots and lots of fun photos, but nothing really great for the cover. We got together with her last week and went to our church prayer garden to take some...it's an amazing place for photos and also a great place for some quiet time with God. Then we went downtown and took some fun ones too. I haven't seen them all yet, but she gave me her favs and then I did a little editing.
We are going to use the one above for the front cover of our portfolio.
This one is just a fun one. We aren't using it, but I love it.
We are using this one in our portfolio too.
I've known I need to lose some weight, but after looking at these pics I am going to be hardcore about it! I've made up a menu for the entire month of June with lots of healthy meals. I'm starting at the gym next Monday. I would start this week, but I have a LOT of stuff to finish up before our home inspection on Wednesday. Plus, I'm fighting a cold/laryngitis right now. Not a fun way to start the summer. If any of you have any great and healthy recipes, I'd love for you to share them with me! I feel like I get stuck in a rut sometimes. I have lots of yummy recipes, but many of them are not super healthy. ha!
Have a great week friends! I know I've said this before, but I am hope to get caught up on commenting and blogging this week! Summer is here and my life is much calmer now! I miss all my favorite bloggy friends!
