Well, we met with our Social Worker for the first time yesterday. Turns out she lives in our subdivision - although about a mile away. We recognized her from the pool and swim team. She was super sweet! She put us at ease and we were able to ask questions about the process and get a better feel for what is going to happen.
I have already started filling out the home study application. We are going to fax that in on Monday and she will send out our references first thing. We scheduled our home visit for this coming Thursday! We have a couple of things to do this weekend, which works out becasue it is going to be 104 today and 102 tomorrow! Way too hot to do anything outside! We are hoping to get our Home Study done in 6 weeks.
Our boys are very excited. Ben, our youngest, said, "Are we getting the sister on Thursday?" Oh, if it were only that easy!
I have lots of fundraiser ideas going on in my head and it is time to sort some of them out and decide what we will do. I have already signed up for a Just Love Coffee account:
This site gives us $5 or more for everything sold through this link. And the coffee is great!
