We are beginning to settle into our new routine. It's nice actually. We come home and chill for a bit. Eat dinner, bathe JP, work on his "homework" (awww...), shower and both Scott and JP are in bed NO LATER than 7:15. JP falls into bed with no problem and is asleep within five minutes. Scott's energy level is so poor, he falls asleep in no time, too. I'll admit, it's kind of nice for me. I usually go to bed around 9:00 or so. So, for a couple of hours the house is quiet and I enjoy time to myself. Usually with Dr. Phil! LOL
I am on my way to bed now.....I just wanted to let everyone know that we are doing pretty good. JP LOVES kindergarten and is excited to go each morning. I let him out in the car line and he walks in by himself! He's turning in to such a big boy! We have worked out a little carpool with a friend and he's enjoying that too!
I will post some pictures soon....even if I have to scramble to take some! I hope everyone is doing well!!! Good night!

I was sitting (my lazy tail) in the recliner watching a movie when JP ran into the room, jumped in my lap and said, "Mommy, thank you so much for adopting me." I melted in my seat. Naturally I teared up and told him that GOD gave him to us and adoption was just a way to make us a family. He let me hold him for a while. THAT NEVER HAPPENS! In that moment, I knew that God was using JP to remind me of His blessings.
Life is so hard. At times, life is painful. I thank God for reminding me yesterday that life is still good.

JP and daddy on the way...
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
- Scott is not doing well physically
- I am going back to work
- JP is beginning kindergarten
- JP is going to a new daycare this week (never been in daycare before)
I think that my emotions in this season of my life are stronger than when we adopted JP! Seriously. I mean, I remember all too well what that felt like on some days, but this may be worse. Last night I had, had enough. You can only cry so much. So, I sat and wrote out my feelings in my journal. Man, I forgot how freeing that can be! It was almost like a light switch...just by putting my feelings on paper, I felt lighter. I thanked God over and over again. I felt at peace for the first time in a while. Now, I just have to leave my burdens at His feet. I am a champ at giving them up and then taking them right back.
I am always telling my sister to not borrow trouble from tomorrow or next week. I tell her to take things ONE DAY AT A TIME! I need to take my own advice!!
I sat down this morning to have my quiet time. I read the first chapter of John and re-read some old sermon notes I had in my Bible. There is one that JUMPED off the page at me.
"If God brought you to it, He will lead you through it!"
I love that!! I needed to hear that! Anxiety and pain are human emotions. Normal. I am not going to beat myself up over having them. I just do not want to waste them! God has allowed me to be in my circumstances for a reason. I pray that God will help me to be open to what He wants me to learn through my trials. I don't want to miss it because I'm crying!
Well, I'm off to take JP to daycare. He seems excited this morning, which helps! I hope everyone has a great day!!!
