Catching Up

I can't believe how long it has been since I posted anything on my blog. Talk about being lax!! SOOOOOO much has happened since my last post...........
The little girl we have taken care of for over a year and a half now has left us and gone to live with her forever family. She left in November and we have really missed her. Especially that laugh of hers! At the same time that she left we took in two new fosters: a boy and his baby sister. They are pretty good kids who have been through a lot. It shows more in the older one. He acts out a little, but it's nothing we can't handle. The baby is adorable. She nearly always has a smile on her face. She is pure joy to take care of. There have been other changes as well. Aubrey and Rachel have each moved out onto their own. The nest is getting smaller. We now only have three kids (plus the fosters) at home. The house seems so much quieter than before. I worry about them all the time, but I know they are doing ok. Rachel is making big plans for her future: SHE'S GETTING MARRIED!! Her fiance, Ereck, proposed to her on Christmas Eve and they are planning a wedding for the end of April. He's currently away at Marine Boot Camp and once they get married she will be joining him in California. CALIFORNIA!! Not only is my baby girl getting married, but she is moving clear across the country!! This was supposed to be a year of change - I was expecting her and Aubrey to graduate high school and then start college in the fall. I WAS NOT prepared for this. I think I have adjusted though. At least, I tell myself that I have..... Kymberly started PreK this year. Yet ANOTHER change. She's done really well, though. In fact, up until last weekm she had not even missed a day of school. She got the stomach bug Monday and had to stay home. She LOVES school and her teachers!! They are awesome with her. She is one of the youngest students in the class due to her birthday being in August so they have really worked with her. She has come so far since school started. I have to go next month and register her for Kindergarten. Wow!! Why is it that the older you get the faster time seems to go. I've fallen so far behind in working on my scrapbooking. Having a baby in the house will do that for you. I look forward to the monthly scrapbooking days we have at our church since that is really the only time I get to work on my pages. This last month I went and managed to get 10 pages done during that one day. I would have loved to have been able to stay longer - I was on a roll and felt like I could've worked all night! I, of course, haven't touch them since that day. We are having a Relay for Life Scrapbooking Crop in April where we go in on Friday night and work til Midnight then we can leave all our stuff and come back and work all day Saturday. I am so looking forward to that!! I hope to get so much accomplished then. I have some pictures of a few pages that I have finished. I'll post some more when I get them done.
