Baby B

Just thought I would give you guys an update on Baby B. She is still with us and looks like she may be here for awhile. The next court will be sometime in July. So until then she will most likely stay with us. Of course with foster care you can never be sure.... but we are loving every minute. If one day she returns home we will be happy for her and will miss her. And if things don't go that direction and parental rights are terminated we would love to be her forever family. One day at a time right now. Enjoying the journey.

Crayon sculptures and spring break

Want a fun activity to do with your kids while they are on spring break? A few weeks ago I saw these crayon sculptures on Pinterest. The kids were very excited to try it. All you need is a fresh box of crayons per kid and a hot glue gun. You may also want to find a cardboard scrap to glue your sculpture on. Just start randomly gluing crayons to each other building them up until you reach the desired size. Lots of fun and super cute in a kids bedroom or in a home school room!

Also some spring break pictures...

The comments

One part of getting a new foster child is the looks and comments you get when out in your community. People that have seen you shopping in their stores or talking walks wonder how you got that baby.

My favorite so far was while taking a walk in the neighborhood I heard two ladies talking on their porch. One said "I didnt even know she was pregnant!". To which her friend replied " Oh I figured she was since I haven't seen her out for awhile." It was pretty amusing. I kinda wanted to march up their driveway and explain myself...but I refrained. There were also the situations in stores where I was busy shopping and didn't really want to explain but people kept trying to figure out the situation and I have to tell them that we were fostering. That is usually followed up by either the whole "Oh I could never do that" line or (the one I like better) "I will be praying!".

We also get the typical new baby comments "She is so adorable!" "What a sweet baby!" and my favorite "She looks just like your husband!".

Point of this post...if you feel like having some interesting conversations with strangers you should think about fostering!
