And now.....

time for the social worker's home visit. So, the house is a mess, we're getting ready to take off for a long weekend, and the weather is really too nice to stay inside and clean! We had the pumpkin patch yesterday, the Halloween dance, Julia's first "sleepover" guest--with Levi, Julia's sidekick, today we have the big soccer game, a babysitter coming at 5 so I can take Ted out for his birthday and then on the late news on Channel 15 a story about the soccer team that Ted coaches. HA! Think anything is going to get cleaned---Hell no! Ted said--this is it, it's our reality. The kids are healthy and happy, the city hasn't condemed the house---oh well! With Julia, the house was freshly painted,cabinets scrubbed--pretty close to perfect. With Rauan, still pretty clean but there were toys around. Now, the truth comes out! Take us or leave us--this is the Pritchard house reality!

Thanks goodness!!!

Well, I was worried about $ and low and behold it came through for us. Still doesn't mean things won't be tight--but I'm not going to be"sweating bullets" as my mom would say. It's just weird how things work out.
I'm still trying to figure out how to put on photos on here. I have an awesome one of the kids playing soccer. Trying to get my practice in with the camera before we travel--please God let in be in decent weather!!! We had good luck with Julia and Rauan--I hope that holds!

First entry

Well, this is the first of many I hope on our new addition.
I have to admit--when I first got the news my stomach started to roll. All these thoughts are running through my head--can we do this? what about Julia and Rauan?where's the money going to come from?how are we going to add another child into this house? etc etc etc I've decided trusting in God and faith to figure it out. Plus--my manager is going to love me for all the extra shifts I put in!
I have to admit--I did spend some $ yesterday. Our digital camera is outdated and I really want something just to be able to post pictures that slides right into a pocket. Plus that would be really nice for the trip! So, I now have a 7.1 megapixel Cannon. Now if I can just figure out how to download it into this....humm, always something.
Let me know if you like the site. I imagine it won't be too exciting for another couple of months.
