Saturdays

Gotta love 'em. They're sleep-in days, catch-up days, relaxing days, shopping days. On this particular Saturday I'm studying for my first exam of the term, and Winn and Sajak are hanging out in the workshop, where Winn is fixing the snowblower and making a prop for church (a ball and chain out of an old bowling ball and some chain link). Sajak is intent on staying by his side, following him from the workroom to the garage and back again. Contacts and formal attire have been abandoned in favor of glasses and pajama pants w/ comfy sweatshirts. For lunch we snacked on leftovers from the fridge. Life is good.

Foster care update:
Yesterday morning we got a call from the social worker saying that the situation had changed with the boys that I blogged about earlier, and they needed us to take them for a whole week (beginning yesterday after school!). After a lot of phone tag between me, Winn, and the social worker, we went to the store and got some bedding and stockpiled groceries...and learned that they had found a different place for them and didn't need us to take them after all. What a rollercoaster! Poor boys. But they do still want us to begin doing respite care for them one weekend a month, beginning in a couple of weeks.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
