I got to do the most exciting thing today.  For the first time, I got to write down my girls NEW names, and leave their case worker off of the forms!  I enrolled them in school.  This year they will be in Kindergarten and 2nd grade.  They are both very excited.

In our new county, school is year-round.  I think it will be good for the girls to have a little more consistency throughout the year.

Since school doesn't start until July, I enrolled them both in day camp.  Fun activities to keep them engaged and happy.  They are in the same group, which hopefully will not backfire on me.

We also stopped by the library today and got a new library card, and the girls each checked out a book.  So they are happily reading in their rooms right now.

Outside of that... we've just been enjoying the summer and getting settled into the new house.  It's been fun most of the time.

Hope everyone is staying dry in the flood zones, and wet in the drought zones!

Isn't this how you pictured motherhood? Writing that name and the relationship "daughter" is pretty cool! Yay Mom!

Yep! I am on the foster care boards (amedinaoh) and hope to foster soon. My third s.w.visit is next week, then it is sent to state. I teach first grade at a year round school up in North Raleigh, track 3.
