Lots and Lots of Lotion


had himself a bit of a sensory experience!

Never underestimate
 the power of a good moisturizer!
Or the power of a LOT of it either!

Foster Wait

It's a funny thing,


It makes time plod my, doesn't it?

After that last post,

a few weeks ago,

on how incredibly long it was taking

to get our foster license,

and how nice it was to finally be done,

we started waiting for calls.

Calls that never came.

I took my phone with me everywhere,

so I wouldn't miss a call.

But there were no calls to miss!

And then today,

today I got notice that only now,

seven months after starting,

we're finally licensed!

 I guess all that waiting for a call was practice?

Tiny Musician

So, a certain little man

has been asking

to have a violin,

like his sister's,

for a long time.

A certain mama

was totally opposed

since that particular little man

has about as much self control

as the average squirrel

on speed.

A certain teacher offered

to let us try it out

for free,

so check out this cuteness!

Ice School

When daddy brings home a bucket of ice,
 this homeschoolin' mama steps up!
 There was drawing,
 and dancing,
and "foots pwints",

and much fun,

and learning,

on a hot day!

Nerds Have Fun

My teens and I attended what I lovingly refer to as

a Nerdfest.
 Don't worry, they are not offended by this term,
 as their parents are also proud nerds.
 Not only did we have

some great opportunity to take fun pictures,
 but we attended some fun talks and classes as well.
 Hey, we can all learn to be better nerds, right?
We had so much fun that we're working on

costumes and making plans for next year!

Zoo Fun

We picked the BEST day
 to visit the zoo!
 Not only was the company excellent,
 and the weather perfect,
 but it also happened to be the week the multiples club was there,
so along with cute animals,

we got to see tons of cute babies!

Waiting, Waiting, Waiting, Wait.....

We've been waiting for our

foster care license to come through

for months!

First, was the 12 weeks of classes,

then the miles of paperwork,

then the homestudy,

and the fingerprints.

OH, the fingerprints!

 My first set got sent back

because it wasn't clear enough.

But that took 5 weeks!

Then, the second set also took

5 weeks, but finally passed,

only to find out Buddy's weren't

clear enough either!

His took 7 weeks to clear!

Then the state worker had a few questions

and the local worker..

and the mailman ...

Ok, not really the mailman, it just felt that way!

Anyway, after SIX MONTHS,

we should be done!

Now I'm waiting to get a phone call!
