Last Wednesday our Placement Coordinator called us. She had a 20 month old boy that she needed to place and asked if we would take him. I told her that we were licensed for a 2-3 year old little girl but she informed me that we could easily change our license to accommodate the little boy. I told her that I wasn't sure it would work. We'd have to get another crib and he would have to share a room with Brody, who will be 11 months in a few days (not too sure about messing up his schedule at this point).

Will you take 9 minutes to watch this - its really quite amazing.
Outside my window...trees with budding leaves.

I am thankful for...the patience I am experiencing today - this is rare.
From the kitchen...tonight is fried rice - I love my wok.
I am wearing...jeans and a Chargers shirt.
I am creating...a refreshed business.
I am going...start reading a new book this week (hopefully).
I am reading...the book of Proverbs.
I am hoping...that the weather stays so nice so we can go fishing this weekend!
I am hearing...Cinderella.
Around the house...toys everywhere! Emma has friends over.
One of my favorite things...the beach. I really need to go by myself soon.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Bible study, hanging out with friends Tuesday, in-laws arrive on Friday.
Here is a picture that I'm sharing: I am craving this so badly right now...

I called our placement coordinator on Monday because I am becoming increasingly frustrated with the fact that we still don't have a placement.

For years now I've told Mark of the different meals that my sisters and I used to eat growing up. My Dad cooked a lot of the time and although he made some really good stuff (at one point he dreamed of being a chef and opening his own restaurant), he also made some...interesting concoctions.

I know that typically my Wednesday's are "wordless", but today I just feel an inner stirring of discontentment and words are needed for me to sort through it.
