Updates...

I am LOVING being a stay at home mom...However, the mom part will really begin when school lets out for summer and I have a kid 24/7! Yikes! Any ideas on how to keep a 13 year old entertained? I did get season passes to a nearby waterpark, so that will help. I think I have 10 more days of freedom. Right now, though, I am working out, going to a weekly Bible study, monthly scrap class, cleaning house and taking it easy on my swing that I got on Mother's day! I have all kinds of ideas to fix up the house...paint the cabinets, fix the carport, make a portico, put up new shutters, put in new windows, put in central heat and air, replace the doors...can you tell I've been watching HGTV? You know what's really sad? We have been here 10 years in December and we haven't done a whole lot to fix it up. I am secretly hoping someone will just want my house as is, and they can fix it up. But wake up, Bekki!!! I want to move soooo bad and these shows are motivating me to do some work around here. Help me Jesus!

I have some good news regarding Clyde...it looks like we will be adopting him! I am happy that he will have a sense of stability and he/we won't have to wonder what's going to happen...this process should be finished within the next few months. There are so many things that a foster child can't do and this is what really excites Clyde about the adoption. Right now, he can't mow the lawn, ride a 4 wheeler, ride a horse, ride on a boat, etc, etc, etc...but when the adoption goes thru we will be the deciding factor, not the state. Don't get me wrong, I understand why they won't let them do some things, but others??? Oh, and I can't post pictures of him...I can't wait to be able to show him to you all! It's weird that you all don't know what he looks like when he's been living with us almost 2 years! Soon my friends, soon! Many blessings to you all!

Great news about Clyde! It will make a world of difference for him & you all, too! I know about watching HGTV & getting your mind going in all directions! LOL But it's fun to daydream & then even more fun to make some of them a reality , so just hang in there! Start small & work up...Keeping you & yours in my prayers! Terri

That's wonderful news Bekki about Clyde! I never would have thought about all the things that you can't allow a foster child to do, for legal reasons. I'm sure the best benefit to him will be to have a permanent family - even if he never gets to ride a horse or do any of those other thigns!!!! I'm sure you'll let him do some ;)
