Daily Life

I don't have much to post about because we haven't been going anywhere except for church and story time once a week. I haven't been reading, knitting, cooking, or scrapbooking. What have I been doing you ask. Absolutely nothing. It is strange, but true. I don't feel like doing anything. I read to the kids alot these days because I get to lie on the couch while doing it! I have been taking vitamin B-6 supplements, and the nausea is waning, but it is being replaced with fatigue. I would take fatigue over nausea any day!

I have been spending way too much time on the computer reading other people's blogs and web surfing. I love reading adoption stories and all the faith that it takes to get through the process. I just read the blog of a woman who adopted an HIV+ teen girl a few months ago and how the process has been for the new daughter and the adoptive family. I just can't get enough adoption stories. It is such an amazing thing to open your heart and home to a child or a sibling group without a mom and a dad, loving the fatherless. It just seems like such a Christ-like thing to do.

Spring seems like it is just around the corner. I have been enjoying the warm sun streaming through the windows! My tulips are starting to come up (the green parts) which is SO exciting! Our apple tree has a ton of little buds on it. The weather has been warmer lately, high 40s and low 50s. The kids have been playing outside everyday which is easy to tell by the piles of dirt all over the deck and walkways. Bennett is an excavator, moving dirt from one place to another, and Rachel is following suit! I can't wait for spring and warmer days, not summer mind you, but the 60s and 70s. That is my favorite! You can tell I am a SLO county girl. I love those mild temperatures.
