living in fast forward....temporarily
Wow, just thinking about this week is making me sleepy! This mamma needs some rest... (so duh, why am I blogging and not in bed?? good question!)
So we've been in hyperdrive this week....
-getting all the last minute documentation finished for our homestudy visit on friday,
-finishing the painting downstairs,
-preparing for our "work day" on saturday
(thanks to some wonderful friends The Wood family and a church they belong to)
- living life with Simon and Danielle who are keeping us hopping!
-and oh yeah....going to work.... my time to rest! :)
So this week Simon's belly has been doing well, finally! I hope it can continue like this. As many of you know he did fall asleep on the toilet this week....what a boy! He's been enjoying his tent, and falling asleep in there as well....hmmm kulp men....they love their rest that's for sure! (But that's because the Kulp women keep them so busy when they're awake!) He smothered me in kisses tonight...sheer bliss for this mom.
Danielle had a very good hearing test, and a good eye exam recently. No pressure changes from her skull closure so that is a very good thing! She has been hamming it up putting on dance shows for us. Her new favorite food this week is oranges! We need to buy stock in the produce section of wegmans I think.
As for Shea.... much more paperwork has been done this week. Our homestudy visit is friday. Our passport renewals are back, we have our fingerprint appnt for NYS (not the uscis yet) scheduled for tuesday, UPS security called us wanting to know why we were mailing documents to Eastern Europe! Good grief! ....and a bazillion other little things that I'm too tired to write about now.
But all is well....we are surviving the snow storm, and the kids are both snuggled up in their beds. Dearest Dan is being quite the trooper doing all the URGENT assignments I have been giving him. Have I mentioned what a good husband I have...putting up with such a type A, semi OCD wifey poo?
I'm off to bed now, I hope :) ...thanks for checking in....hugs from the Kulp Family
Dear God, our prayer tonight is that you protect our family, our health, and our finances as we move forward in this journey toward Shea. We thank you for all your little "surprises" in life, you sure do have a sense of humor. Help us to cherish the moments even as we are in a phase of "fast forward living"....and give us a sense of peace that we are closing in on the paperwork....and there will be rest from this cross eyed craziness someday soon. Protect our Shea, please close any doors that would lead to his transfer....and bless those who have been blessing us as we bring Shea home to his "peeps"! Oh and dear God, I almost forgot - please let a minivan miraculously appear in our driveway....cause I can't smoosh any more kids in my honda civic! AMEN
