Planting a seed


Spent the weekend planting our veggies. A lot of hard work, but very rewarding. To stand there and see the seedlings ready to grow fruit for our family. Now, a little luck that they will survive. Spring time in Maine can be up and down temperature wise.

Isn't that they way with everything. You plant a seed of thought or hope, and wish it the best. Take care of it the best way you know how...and cross your fingers!

I am glad that I had things to keep me busy. It made the long weekend blow by. I only thought about the match meeting on Friday a few times. I am hoping that we hear something today. The boy's SW told me that the meeting was on Friday morning and that we should get a packet of personal history by mid-week this week. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL MID-WEEK to see if we have been picked. Is she crazy!?!

I will do the best I can, NOT to make her insane. Not call every few min's. At least let her take her coat off this morning before checking in.

Andy-the-great and I will be attending another Meet & Greet, June 6th. We are not big fans of this type of gathering. Last time we attended, there were about 25 children awaiting families, and about 30 families, and their children, looking to adopt. We had to almost stand in line to connect with a child in waiting.

I understand the concept, and if families were limited to a smaller group, it may work better.
We are attending, however, because our carrot top will meet us there. For the first time. We will arrive a bit earlier than the other families, and have our own few moments with him. It is not expected for him to be there very long. He has to travel an hour and a half, to get there. Yuck! I can imagine that he won't be at his best. Doesn't matter to me. We have no real expectations.
Just crossing our fingers, and hoping he will grow. Grow in our care...

Hoping you hear real soon I have never done a meet and greet, but I always thought the idea was a little wierd, but exciting at the same time.

I love your garden, I want to plant something this year. I work soo much that I can't keep up with it. I am sending you good thoughts on the matching. We never did the matching thing. We just did foster to adopt.
