last minute Friday...

Our agency seems to like to wrap things up on a Friday.  I'm not complaining though!

I got an email at 4:09, and a call a bit after that saying that our Packet II was approved, and that we were officially a 'homestudy family', meaning that is the step that we are currently in.

She said that our social worker, who I really like, will call us early next week (or maybe even this weekend), to set up a time for her first visit....

Guess now is the time to get the carpet shampooed.....

We decided to meet for happy hour at a local sushi restaurant before we went and picked up my step daughter.  The agency called while I was waiting for Travis to come, but I couldn't call and tell him right away because he was going to ride his motorcycle there, so I had to wait until he actually got there.

We enjoyed some sushi and decided to celebrate tonight with Aleigha over a campfire (and marshmallows of course)!

I also bought some mums that will need to be potting, and the things needed for our first 'fall craft'.... it's my favorite season, so I tend to go all out....



  1. What wonderful news! I am so very happy for you!!!

  2. This is fantastic news!! How many visits does the social worker have to make? So happy for you guys!

  3. That is awesome!! And I love how you celebrated! I love mums in the fall! :-)

  4. Yay! One more step in the right direction! Thinking of you!

  5. That's super!

    Have fun with all the prep and projects.
