One day more

I've heard these words many times in the last couple weeks, "One Day More". I'm currently in a production of Les Miserables and these words have been sticking like leeches to my ears. If you have guessed yet - no we have not heard anything about Little C. Every day is one day more. One day not together. 

But there are days to celebrate, and I would take many more like these....

A little boy and his blue bunny

Last day of school. 
He told me the rhyme to put on the paper. :)

Soccer nights. Looks like his first time flirting even... Lol!

Kicking one of his first goals! 
Over the other teams goal line...
But so proud of his accomplishment. 

First Mohawk. First lost tooth (that fell out on its own). 

My toothless wonder. 

T-ball nights. 
Kicking the dust. 
Making sure it really is dust. 

Getting his head in the game... But not looking at the hitter... Hmmm....

Batter up!

Vacation Bible School. Celebrating God's love with my child. 

Learning new songs that are now sung around the kitchen, bedroom, shower, car...

Spending time with Jon and his new job. 
We are so happy he loves his new job! And Caleb loves learning more about the tools his Dad will get to use!

Running side by side with my son during his first 5k!

Watching the pride he had crossing the finish line. 

Seeing the friendships he has made with his preschool friends. 

Summer parades. 

One day more. 
Maybe the days aren't what I had hopes for right now, but I can't complain. 

Our days are filled with love and life. 
I am truly thankful. 

Even if I am becoming impatient...

In Christ -

6 Months as Foster Parents

So the title may have had wittier moments in my head, but in all reality, it is full and honest truth. Six months as Foster Parents. I would like to know where the last half of a year went...

This summer was quite the season.  Although it is supposed to be a season of warmth, relaxation, and vacations, we were in a Winter. A really long, brutal, stormy winter, where you hunker down in your house and wonder when the storm will pass. On the sunny days of this winter, we basked in the light and enjoyed the 30 degree temps. On the cloudy, sub-below temp kind of days - well, we made it through to the next day.

To say I have learned more in the last six months than just about any other six months in my life, would be a completely accurate statement. The learning curve my husband and I have been on has been huge. There are days we scored a perfect 10. And there have been many more days where we have scored a 2, if being gracious in the scoring.

Trauma is - well I have words for it, but since…

What's the buzz?

With Easter just passed, I was realizing that I never listened to Jesus Christ Superstar - one of my favorite past times during Lent, as the music has always led me to think about Christ and how he related with his family and friends in those last moments before his death. Plus, I'm a sucker for any music from a musical. Imagine that!? So - What's the buzz? Tell me what's happenin'....

This year I missed the Superstar boat though with little downtime at home; however, I did find myself listening to Godspell one day as I organized my bedroom and was reminded of one of my favorite songs and its' lyrics....
All good gifts around us Are sent from heaven above So thank the Lord, oh thank the Lord For all His love I really want to thank you Lord!

All good gifts - my life is filled with so many. God is blessing us richly with a life that is full of truth, love, and spirit. Along with these blessings comes a multitude of new knowledge, some easy to grasp and hold onto, and some…

Until we meet again: A Fostercare Goodbye

For baby girl and big boy A -

Here is the time I must say goodbye to you, my sweet, sweet children. For almost four months, you have been a part of our family, a part of our daily life, and a big part of my heart.

Please know I do not see this as a forever goodbye, for I know I will see you again. It may be next month, catching up at the park. It could be next fall, waving in the hallway at school. Maybe we will see you at your next birthday party, and I can see how tall you've grown. Or perhaps we will attend your graduation, and congratulate you on the fine young adult that you are. And in the card I write you, I'll remind you of the the four months we had together, and how you still have a part of my heart.

Although maybe the next time I see you, time will have passed by many, many years. I will be at the store or I'll be walking down the street and I'll think-what a beautiful and confident young woman that is, or what a handsome and kind young man he is. You won…
