While the two three year olds finish the last two days of their summer program, we finished the sixes and Seven up on summer homeschool work. The three’s start preschool when we come back, and the sixes start first grade!
Kirk was especially proud to pass his typing test on the first try, for the first time ever! Not bad for one-handed typing!
Baby Girl hangs out in the meantime, just doing her healthy baby thing.
We had to use her tube once yesterday and once today. She is so close to getting it out! Nathan said she ate more than three ounces tonight! She really is trying so hard.
Our doorbell rang far too late for doorbells, and it was the worker dropping off the adoption packet for Seven! It’s really happening, finally! We are very excited, despite the paperwork to fill out once again. She’s worth it.
Besides adjusting to me being back home and a baby in the house once again, the kids are adjusting to us being done fostering. The season of kids coming and going has drawn to a close, and it was hard work for all of us. We had the opportunity to bring Two back, but had to decline. It is heart breaking, but also the first time ever that even the kids voted no on a new kiddo – or to new kiddos at all. We are done, they know, and I see the permanency shift in their own dynamics amongst each other as much as in their individual countenances.
We are becoming a family.
