Update from crazy land

I can't believe it has been over a month since my last post. School started 2 1/2 weeks ago, so that is a decent excuse, right? Our life is craaaaaazy right now - but great! Chris is teaching, which is something we have praying for for a long time. Yes, we prayed for this chaos, knowing full well that it would be chaos. Chris' days are a bit more chaotic and exhausting than mine, as he is teaching 3 different subjects in 4 different classrooms. But he loves it!

Chris and I are absolutely loving having a normal schedule (6:30am-6ish as opposed to 3:30pm-12am). We get to eat dinner together at home - what a novel concept! Sitting down together in the evening over a home-cooked meal, thanking God for our busy, tiring day, adds an amazing amount of stability and peace to our lives.

On an adoption note - did you notice that we have been waiting for our referral for 6 months? And we are in the "Top 10," which is a list that some uber-organized ladies in our Yahoo Group have put together to keep track of where we all are in this crazy process. I don't think I have thanked them yet for taking the time to do this – so, if you are reading this, thank you!

This means is that we will most likely (dangerous words to use) receive our referral by the end of the month or early October. We will see...
