Quick Update

Well, we finished our PS MAPPS classes! We are officially deemed worthy to raise children by the state of Arizona. Now, we just wait for a call!

We are currently camping out in the basement of a wonderful couple from our church until our house in completed, so probably a month or two.

The kids are loving preschool and pre-K so far and just keep growing up so fast! Bethany turns 5 on Saturday, so we are preparing for the Big Barbie Birthday Bash. Working on this year's piƱata... it's turning out really neat! I'll have to post pictures of it before Saturday. Sigh... born for destruction.

No time for much creative writing here on the ol' blog. I'm trying to channel any time and energy that I have for that sort if thing into songwriting. Besides, does anyone even read blogs anymore? Seems to me like they're on their way out. But I just saw "Julie and Julia" which was really fun and reminded me that "Oh, right! I have a blog!"

Have you ever been playing hide and seek with your kids and you're hiding and they're just not finding you? And you stay there, hardly breathing, legs cramping up, thinking what a great hiding place you've found only to eventually discover that they've long since moved on to another activity and forgotten all about you?

Fun times.

I hope people still read blogs, after 3 years I finally started mine.

I'm glad to know that you are now certified to raise kids - I was so worried about your 3 other children :-)
I LOVE your blog and getting updates on your family - please don't stop completely.
We will be praying for the new growth in your family...

LOL - you always capture the funny parenting moments here and on FB. Keep us posted when you get "the call" :).

I love reading your blog! I can't believe Bethany is going to be five--WOW time flies. Hooray for the Jollie's--what wonderful folks they are. I will be praying for the lucky children that God is going to add to your family. I'll also pray that everything goes smoothly with your new house and you get in soon. See you in a couple of weeks!
