Man oh man.. it has been wayyyyy tooo long! It seems like the last few months have just flown by.
Updates on the home front are:
#1 is……I HAVE TO GO READING my favorite blogs!
#2 is…..We no longer have the little foster kids. There were so many issues that made us make a decision to have the kids moved to another home. First of all, these poor boys had to be transported 3 times a week to see their father for a 2 hour visit and the drive usually took about an hour and half one way, so these kids had to be in a car for 3 hours 3 days a week. Then they had the kids in therapy to learn how to handle seeing their father and how to behave in the car after “daddy visits”. The thing about therapy was that they did not do therapy right after a time with daddy so they could address the daddy issues they had… nooo, therapy became what they were doing at daycare and analyzing US as foster parents. We would get a call from our CPS worker that said they were concerned about the kids’ play time or that their nails had a little dirt under them or that the boys had said they did not have a bath the night before. Did the therapist ever call us with her concerns NOOO. Also, mommy was going to be released from jail and the kids were then also going to have to visit her (so another trip into the 4th town south from us). We just could no longer have these kids have to be the ones to have to travel for these visits. And I just could stand the idea that they would be going back to homes with drug addicted parents, then back to foster care again. So we achieved that milestone in our lives.
#3 is…. The horses and my house were being neglected with having kids in the house, so I have been trying to do catch up on things that would get put on the back burner. It is nice that the weather is better, makes for being out with the horses so much more pleasant.
#4 is… I will have to write some stuff about our cruise and our recent visit to our kids in
But for now… I am going to do a little #1.
Take care and I will be back soon.
