It seems that in my adult life, nothing has ever gone according to plan. Or even remotely according to how I foresee it going. And if something does go according to plan, it's never without major hiccups. I'm not complaining at all. I have learned to ride the coaster fairly well. I keep meltdowns to a minimum and go with the flow.

So when Joey called to tell me- just a few weeks after we closed on our house and moved our family to Birmingham- that things at his job had taken a turn and he was going to be needed back in Houston full time, I wasn't shocked. 

The kids had just started at a new school that was amazing. Finding a school that I felt comfortable sending Archie to had not been an easy task, and this was that school.  I was completely in love with our house and our two wooded acres. I had all sorts of plans and visions and hopes. 

The kids and I {along with our pig, cat, and tortoise} stayed in Birmingham while Joey and I went back and forth on what the heck to do. He was in Houston most of the time, coming to see us on weekends. It was not easy on any of us. 

So at the end of the school year, we decided we would all come back to Houston. So here we are. 

Shortly after moving back, an unexpected job opportunity fell into my lap and just a few days later I found myself back in the classroom after five years of being a stay-at-home-mom. 

Radko is now in "school" full time. He gets to come with me, and his classroom is about 100 feet from mine. But I still cried dropping him off on the first day. And popped by just to sneak a peek at him every chance I could possibly get. 

First day of school crew


The big kids started at a new school where they already have friends and they are super excited and happy. Archie is in fourth grade, and Ace is in second. What?!

As for Sevy....we still wait. We have had a variety of setbacks. All of the changes that have happened over the past few months have slowed things down quite a bit. We are so incredibly anxious to get back to her and bring her home. I know that she will be here before we know it, and that this waiting time will soon be just a distant memory. But it sure does suck. 

That's all for now. Between lesson planning and back to school paperwork and a teething baby who literally screams at the top of his lungs in the night- my brain is fried. 

Lots of Love!
