May has been a crazy month up to this point. Besides the computer breaking down, we also had to replace the water pump in our van earlier this month too, which meant borrowing a car from the in-laws for almost a week (Thanks!) We have also gotten to continue our foster care classes again (finally!)
Classes have been going well, but they are on Saturdays & they take pretty much the whole day. 2-3 hour sessions a day along with a 1-1 1/2 hour drive each way (sometimes 2 hours if you allow for the time it takes us to get from our house to whoever's house is babysitting for us that day.) This leaves one nice day off before getting back into the swing of things for the week.
It may be selfish, but I'm not always that super excited about having to "share" my ONE day off with anyone & many times would much rather be holed up at home with Scott & Luke just relaxing. I always seem to have a big "to-do" list for the weekend too, which never gets completely accomplished because, of course, I have planned waaayyyy too much to be able to do all of it in just one day.
All in all, though, it has been a good thing & we have learned quite a bit. It has also been a good thing for Luke too. He has gotten in loads of play time with plenty of friends & cousins, however, come Sunday...he is one worn out kid! It's tough going from being the only kid with adults all week long to having 2, 3, or 4 other playmates for a whole day to romp around with~it wears a kid out! So, Sundays have been somewhat relaxing around here during the month of May, but, boy oh boy, are we all tired too! ;)
