As of this last week, we are the parents of two children. We are also parenting 10 adults.... but 3 of our kids have turned 18 in the past 3 months. That means three less subsidies. And they all still live here. Something to think about if you are aquiring multiple children. Three cell phone plans, hundreds of dollars in insurance for multiple vehicles, all those things you never think about when you have a whole bunch of cute little kids... but that wasn't my point.
Just wanted to update you a tad bit as to who is living here. Dominyk, Wilson, and Leon are still here - -as they were this summer, Sadie and Tony are done with Job Corps and are living here, and Salinda and Gabby and Gabby's dad's sister are here. Rumor has it Jimmy might be leaving Job Corps and moving home as well....
Salinda and Sadie each bought new used cars today -- paid cash -- and we are looking forward to spending Easter with as many kids that show up and maybe some friends.
Life is still good....
Loving our church and our friends -- loving my job at Bethany -- challenging and rewarding -- enjoying having Gabby excited to see me when I get home...
It's still challenging (john is out of jail and not able to live here, Mike had a car accident -- but they don't like to be mentioned in the blog).
The new baby to be born in June and Bart and I will be sharing doing day care in their home one day a week starting in September.
I have not read a blog in weeks.... I feel totally out of the loop -- and I seldom even have time for Facebook.... but it's all good.
I miss directly placing kids and I really miss matching and Adopt America... but as I said, I'm loving Bethany.
How is everyone doing out there?
