Well I can’t believe it’s been over a month since my last post!! I am soo... sorry I haven’t been keeping this updated like I should. But I have a VERY good excuse; life has been sooo… crazy busy over the last month!! So here is a quick recap of our last month and an update on our adoption process!!
August started with David starting his new position as Open-Space Deputy, which he loves! He is getting to be out hiking in the hills and patrolling the open space of
now and he loves the change of pace from being on patrol on the streets. I started back to school full time and am hoping that this is my last fall semester at our local community college! Hopefully if all goes well I will be at Marin County in the fall of 2012 and only a few semesters away from graduating with my degree so I can FINALLY start teaching!! Ryan also started school in August; he is officially a big kid now that he is in 1st grade! I have to be honest and say that watching him go off for his first day of school was much harder this year then it was last year in Kindergarten. I did really well until I got to the car and cried a little bit. My baby isn’t a baby anymore and that hit me like a ton of bricks that day! Ryan has also been very busy with baseball over the last several months and every game he getting better and better! So between David working, Ryan and I in school and Ryan’s baseball schedule…..life in our house has been a little crazy but we wouldn’t have it any other way! Sac State
Not only are we busy with just general life stuff but we are super busy with all aspects of our adoption process!! We had our last home visit for our home-study in August and it has become our little hang up in this process as we are STILL waiting to make our edits and to finalize of our home study. But I’m crossing my fingers and hoping we can do all that by the end of this week!! Other then this little issue we are going full force with all other aspects of our process. We will be starting on our dossier paperwork in the next few weeks, which makes me nervous and stressed all at once but I know it will be done quickly and ready to go when it’s time to send in everything!! We are also planning and currently selling tickets for our first big fundraiser. We are having a Halloween costume ball at our house on October 29, 2011!! Tickets are $25 dollars and all adults are welcome to join us if you are in the area and want something to do around Halloween you should come and join us!!:) We will be having a raffle, silent auction and costume contests…I promise you will have a blast and enjoy the evening helping us raise money to bring our little boy home!! We are also in the works of a couple other small fundraisers that we are planning to hold in November and December! And please don’t forget we are still holding “Aaron’s Lucky Stars” fundraiser, this will be one that we do up until we actually leave to go get our little man and bring him home!!Again I promise not to go so long without posting again and if you have any questions about our up coming fundraiser please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to purchase tickets you can pay using our chip-in and then email with how many tickets you bought and I will get them to you, if you want to pay with cash or check email me and we can work out all the details!! I am trying to get a page up and going for our fundraisers and the information on them, so be on the look out for a link to our fundraiser page on our blog!
