Final Home Study Complete

Monday afternoon we had our last home study.  Our home study agent came to our house to meet our kids and ask them some questions.  I was definetly more nervous for this study then any of the others we had.  Scott took the day off from work and we spent the whole day straightening up the house, installed a couple smoke detectors and just spent the day getting ready.  We literally were down to the wire.  She was due here around 3:15 and I was jumping in the shower at 2:50. 

She certainly got a taste of "normal" life here.  The boys raced each other up the basement steps to meet her, one grabbing the others leg and attempting to pull him back down the steps so they could make it up first.  Then as they showed her their room our youngest decided to jump from the ladder off the top bunk, just after she said "I hope you don't jump down from up there."  While she was taking a look at our room they came storming in, leaping on our bed, one on top of the other, wrestling around, pillows and a blanket flying in the air.  Oh yeah, she certainly got a sight of "normal" here. 

They were still polite and answered all her questions and then they went off to play, and quietly I might add.  Then Scott and I answered a few more questions for her and she left.  That was that.  Now we wait for her to write her home study report and once we get that we can move on to the next step.

"Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate."  Psalm 127:3-5
