Well, as of last Saturday we are all moved in to our place in Grabill (many thanks to our parents and my brother, Sam - Thank you, thank you, thank you! Unfortunately, we are still waiting on Internet hookup and so i am doing my blog post from Gateway campus while we are on duty. The kids are still at school and i have about 15 - 20 minutes before they come home. Hannah had her 9 month checkup this last week and is weighing in at 21 lbs even. She continues to crawl around using her walrus flop technique and Owen is learning the fine art of sharing.
For those who were wondering, we live in a house in Grabill 2/3 of the month (this house is owned by Gateway). And then when the main houseparents take their time off (9 days out of the month) then we stay at the home on campus with the residents and take over as houseparents. The days that we are not covering as houseparents are maintenance days and we do whatever needs done around campus and help out the houseparents as needed. There, our job in a nutshell : )
OK, i need to get myself in the groove to welcome 5 teenagers home from school : ) i will update more when i can concentrate on it better! : )
