Notasoccermom wants to be a soccer mom

I took a little vacation from blogging. I didn't intend to, it just worked out that way. Working 3-11pm and spending all day with kids hasn't left much time for the internet.

But here I am.
Did you miss me?
Awww, I missed you Guys too.
Thanks for all the emails :o)

Now on to the news.
Big changes are in the works for us ( Myself, Randy, and the girls).
We're applying to become family teachers for the organization that I work for.
So, long story short- We'd sell our house, move to the Boys Town campus, live in this MASSIVE house and raise 8 other girls besides our own. I guess I should explain that it's a regular community on the campus. We'd have our own apartment connected to the house we live in with the 8 girls.

It's all very exciting.
Being parents is something that we ROCK at.
Even we got married we talked about doing foster care when we had a big enough house.
So, this is kinda a way to do that. It would be our full time job. And since we're that weird couple that does everything together anyway, it's an added bonus.
The money is ok, but it's not about the money. We'd actually loose all our bills except car payments and credit cards ( which aren't that bad to begin with). Utilities, food and gas are paid for. They even give us a van to drive ( we're still keeping our cars, though).

So, that's what's up with us.
Keep your fingers crossed for us!!!

cool. i mentioned to stephanie that we could adopt a 7 ~ 9 year old since our girls are both out of high school. she replied, "so we can screw up another?"
good luck
