TGIF 11-6-15

It’s already the first Friday in November. Is it just me, or has the time just been flying by lately? I suppose that’s a side effect of having so much going on.

The foster licensing grinds through its process. The training and background checks are complete. I think we have one or two more mandated inspections that we are waiting to have scheduled. Doctor’s appointments are fun. On the phone it’s, “Yes, we can schedule you for that and no, you don’t need anything special,” but when we get there, it’s, “Oh, you were supposed to bring this form and that form and we’ll need a signed statement from these people before we can do anything.” It’s so much fun, but I still recommend doing it. Just understand that not everyone involved in the process is as helpful as they could be. We’re in the Hurry Up and Wait part of the process now, so at least I have plenty of military and government experience with that.

Halloween was a great success. I have a few pictures here for your entertainment. Most of the kids were great. One or two could have used a bit more education in manners, but most were fantastic Some of them made my night, running around Oohng and Ahing at all of the decorations. That’s why we do what we do. It takes a lot of work to put it together, but the reactions make it worthwhile. Then we take it down and get ready for the next one. Always keep it moving forward. That sounds familiar, doesn't it?

Now we are getting ready for Thanksgiving. We don’t do as much for that one, since family is so far away. but we are still thankful for all that we have. It’s always good to be thankful.

I’ll keep it short today. Hope you have a great weekend, and don’t forget to tell your friends about us. We are still growing, and that is thanks to you, so Thank You. We appreciate it.
