Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

Can you hear the echo?

It's been pretty darn quiet around here! Not only have we been insanely busy, but to put it quite bluntly, I've been angry, and I've found it best to not blog when I'm angry. My posts tend to cross the line into "over-sharing", and with familial over-sharing, not only are feelings going to get hurt, but it's going to come back to bite me in the butt!

So the business...

I've been busy gathering the last couple of documents, and filling out the last forms for the adoption. I think we're all done with that now! (Do I hear cheers from the sidelines????) We're just waiting for a draft of our homestudy report to review, and then it can all get sent off to USCIS for approval! For those who are not familiar with the international adoption process, that means that our part of the job is done.

Dean is really enjoying his new job, and went from "new hire" to "top sales person" on his first day on the job! To say he raised the bar would be a gross understatement! He's also enjoying some of the perks his new job affords him, and so am I. ;-)

Angela auditioned for the school play a couple weeks ago, and I am so proud to say she got a part! She's a "conventioneer" in a play about aliens. She has her second practice tonight, and so far she is loving it! What's not to love when it's all about pretending to be someone else? That is what she spends most of her free time doing anyway! LOL

Our puppies are 4 weeks old today, and we have three sold with checks in hand, and another couple of families visiting this weekend so hopefully by Monday I'll be able to report back and say they're all sold. The funds from the puppies is a significant chunk of our adoption money, so we're thrilled that they're selling! Thank you God! Now we just need to keep them healthy and happy another 4 more weeks until they go to their new homes.

And, to leave you with a bit of cuteness to make you smile today, here are puppy pictures from last week. I'll have to take new ones again this weekend!

The puppies are adorable. I am glad to hear that things are moving along with your adoption process.
