journaling my life as a single adoptive/foster mommy so I can share our life and remember these things when I am old.

Tomorrow schools will be closed for the third day in a row. I think that is a record for Rochester schools :-) Fortunately, I work at a school which has also been closed for two days so I have been able to stay home without taking personal time. We have tried to keep busy and today managed to get outside for a little while and drive to the little market to buy milk. The laundry got done, the homework didn't yet. sigh. Ben got to build, Caitlyn got to color, and when Amanda wasn't confined to her room, she got to watch tv and play outside and stay up a little later. I took a nap. But this staying home is wearing us out. We are a go, go, go kind of family. Even if we don't have anything to do, we run to Walmart on the weekends just to get out or to the mall or somewhere to get us out of the house. And now the weather is supposed to turn super cold which means the little kids will have to stay in. Man I hope daycare is open tomorrow! We did have some fun, but we are really ready for spring!
I'm a very busy mommy of three beautiful adopted children. My big girl, my little man and princess monkeybutt are my world. Adoption has become my passion and I do whatever I can to be an advocate for foster children and adopted children. I love my family and we are loving God, loving each other and making life up as we go along!
