Well, this is it. Today is the last day with my foster son J. It is actually bittersweet for me. After all that has happened, the relief that it is over, I still feel bad he is leaving. I feel guilty for the times I was impatient or in a bad mood. I truly hope things go well for his family. The one thing I do have to say is that they really love him.

My daughter who is almost four is going to be in a big ballet production of cinderella next week. Tomarrow is the dress rehearsal. She is a pumpkin with all the other 3 year olds in her class. I pictured "Halloween" costumes and boy, was I surprised!. She is wearing an exquisit ballet costume. It is so beautiful!. All the costumes are incredible! But what did I expect? This is ballet. Not t-ball. I actaully cried during one of the rehearsals because it was so beautiful and my little princess is in it!

We own a little house about an hour from here that we rent out. We decided to sell it. A big decision but it sold in 2 days. We did get what it was worth. In fact, a little more probably but the people who baught it had ben bought out from 2 times before so were willing to pay more. It's a relief. Now we will buy property near us and build a duplex on it. The money has to stay in rental property, we found out for tax reasons. I guess it doesn't HAVE to but we don't want to pay thousands of dollars in taxes! Anyway, it is good income to have a rental.

As you have probably noticed, today's entry is a little of this and a little of that. There isn't a whole lot to tell except that today, I am very happy and content with life. I love my Birkenstocks, although my feet are sore from wearing them all day yesterday. I love my house, my kids, and the beautiful place we live. Who could ask for more?

I like a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

I am so glad you got the house sold, that is fantastic.

Rentals are a great idea.

I am excited to see the ballet and I am planning on going on Monday. I just need to know where to get the tickets. I am going to take my kids. They need a little... um what is the word?

I just drove by and saw that his Mom was there to get him.

Bitter sweet I can imagine. But, you must have peace just knowing that his family does love and want him. There are so many that are returned to homes that are just plain dangerous. What a great thing you are doing.

Aww, a ballerina pumpkin....I think I would have cried too, lol.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and your kind words!
