Ready, Set, Prepared for 2 Year Post Placement. . .

Well, we're ready. . .The house is clean, and I have all of the pictures set aside and I just heard that it will be 59 degrees on Monday! Woo Hoo! I love it when we're off and the weather is good. . .

I got an email from our Social Worker yesterday saying that the new requirement is to have three sets of 8-10 pictures. . .they don't have to be duplicates, but it is okay if they are. . .I have 75 set aside! I think I have it covered! (Barb-I'll try to share a sampling of what we are presenting after our visit. . .most are already on the blog, but some are really just too cute!! He's grown so much since our last visit. . .)

I also have set aside some examples of what Aidan has been doing in school: writing, arithmatic, pictures, and he drew a pretty good picture on the White Board in the Rec Room last night--save that for Kristin, too! We'll show Kristin the growth chart and Aidan's bedroom-we were still in a crib a year ago and now in a big boy bed--but I'm so happy she'll be able to see him outside playing and riding his bike!! That is his true favorite thing to do and the weather will actually cooperate!

Today is laundry day and time to change sheets and towels. The boys went off to the hunting camp and then to Grandma and Grandpas to set up their new DVD player. So, that will leave me free to work on some of the accumulated clutter in the guest rooms--woo hoo!! Next up will be to go through Aidan's closet and dresser and pull out everything he has outgrown. . .which is nearly everything!! He keeps this up, he'll be taller than me by Kindergarten--and yes, growing pains in his legs and feet for the most part. I think that explains some of why he comes into our bed at night. The change to a nutritious diet has been extremely beneficial for him!

Aidan dressed himself to go to the Hunting Camp, picking everything out himself. Can you tell???

But, the best part of the day is that dinner is already cooking in the crock pot and that means I can enjoy my two guys when they come home later today. . .

Hope you all are enjoying the weekend!
