The ball is rolling...

...or bouncing, as it were.

We met with the guidance counselor at S & C's current school earlier today. The meeting went so well! She was very helpful:

--C is in montessori which has limited spots, and we wanted her to be able to return to montessori when they move back in with mom-in-law. Counselor said she didn't see that being a problem; yay!

--We wondered about the best way to ease them into living with us and going to a new school. I wondered about driving them an hour one way to their old school for a few days after they moved in with us. Counselor said since they know hubs and me and have stayed at our house, they would probably be fine starting in their new school right away. We'll drive them by the school this weekend to show them where they'll be, and they should be much more comfortable Monday morning. Yay!

We talked to the new school today, and they will be ready for the girls to start Monday. We meet with the counselor at the new school tomorrow afternoon to make sure everything is in place.

And tomorrow evening we'll be moving two little girls into our pink guest bedroom (the one with the snot on the walls).

Looking forward to the adventure!

When I think of you and this situation I think of what Mordecai said to Esther: "Who knows but that you were born for such a time as this" (Donnamo version)

Sounds like you all are being very wise :)and loving :)

Consider Hollywild for a field trip in DEC. (Google it) I took 3 of ours last year and they love, loved it. Gabby's two go EVERY year they like it so much!

Man, talk about instant responsibility. You are doing such a great job at looking after the girls and their best interest! I am so proud of you!
You are getting life training for future little tykes (or birth control :)), and I can tell you are gonna be great at it! Keep up the rules and lovingly enforce them, they need it now more than ever!
You can do it!
