Today was our first full day with the boys and we got a glimpse of what life will be like from now on.  They arrived by 9:30 am and Kevin drove them back to Foster Nanny for 6:30 pm already in their jammies and ready for bed.

All in all it was a good day.  We got to see a bit more of their personalities’ and we are happy to report we are getting two wonderful boys.  The day wasn’t without its challenges, but it was also full of rewards.

Kate stayed home from school this morning to play with them and our case worker arrived about 11am to see how things were going.  We had a terrific morning.

After lunch Kevin went to work and Kaitlyn went to school and Mommy went insane.  The boys had a not so quiet ‘quiet’ time.  In no way will they ever nap in the same room again!  They stayed in their room an hour and fifteen minutes totally against their will.  I could hardly contain my laughter as I listened to them over the monitor scheming and playing.

After picking up Katie from school we did a few errands and came home to read books and play downstairs before dinner.  All the kids ate a good meal and Kevin reported all three promptly fell asleep before he hit the highway.

Jonathan and Nicholas have crept into my heart these last few days and have each claimed a spot for themself.  Life will never be the same again, but neither will I.

    Scripture says that God has designed each and everyone of us and that He has a plan for our lives. The boys are not any different. His plan is perfect and right for them! I am so overjoyed that you get to direct their paths and watch as God puts His perfect plan in place. Praise the Lord for He is so very good!
    PS The afternoon nap is more about Mom getting a break then the kids needing a nap! You are so blessed!

    I can just imagine how exhausted you were after a full day. Mind you God prepared you for a house full of kids with your day care. I am truly excited for you. At the same time my heart breaks for the Nanny who opened her heart to your sons to give them a good home until God brought you all together. Now she also needs to say farewell. Praying for you all.

    always Jo
