Well, you know I’m generally no good at keeping secrets. And anyone who has had a conversation with me in the past few months (or read my Facebook stati) already knows what I’m going to say (or had a pretty good clue). But I think it’s time to make it blog official… our family is growing!
We’re converting the bonus room to a full-fledged bedroom to accommodate the fact that, as of late-August/early-September we will be a three daughter family! Yes, that soon. And it’s hardly enough time to get everything done. I have an afghan to crochet. We have to clean the house top to bottom, because once she arrives it will just be a whirlwind. Thank goodness we seem to have the school stuff straightened out.
Yes, I said school stuff. What, you thought I was pregnant? Geez, can’t a girl have an ice cream sundae without people saying she’s pregnant? No! We’re becoming an international exchange student host family! Today we finally crossed a crucial series of hurdles in assuring our host daughter a spot at the high school, and I am jubilant. We have already been matched with a student – her name is Anja, and she is a 17-year-old German girl who will be a junior here come fall.
We’ll give more details as they are confirmed, but I was too excited to not make it blog-official 🙂
