I'm back... kinda. I'm not doing any adoption updates right now. Please don't ask for them, when I'm ready to share what's been going on around here, I'll share, until then, please respect that that area is off limits and private for now. We've had custody for just over 4 months, and been home just over 3. Vlad is in school, and ACADEMICALLY doing well beyond what his ESL teacher anticipated he'd be doing by this point. As a family we are still very much adjusting, we have some OK days, some bad days, and some days I consider slamming my head through a window...
But, that being said, here's a recent photo. He sure can be cute sometimes.
That being said, here are some projects I've been working on lately.
We've... errrr, ok, I've done some major overhaul on the house lately. Unfortunately after 3 months at attempting to keep all the boys together, it just wasn't working out. So, I cleaned out the playroom and have redistributed the toys and turned the playroom into Asher's "big boy" room. He hasn't slept in it yet, I'm waiting for his dresser to arrive-it's gotta be complete you know. Then the TV which also used to be in the playroom got moved to the office. The office had to downsize it's number of books to make room for a second desk since I'm going back to school in the fall (that's another story). And that lead to my sanding, priming and refinishing the old desk and turning it into the entertainment center, allowing me to move the dresser it had been sitting on upstairs for Vlad to use. Then Darren and I both got new $100 desks from Target. Yea, we're big spenders. HA.
Pictures of the desks makeover-inspiration came from my SUPER talented friend Natalie.
