We renewed our foster care license this month which meant filling out paperwork, re-do finger prints, discovering that the state of Missouri lost our original file and now we have to provide all of those copies too......cleaning the house for the inspection, etc.
I am hoping for a break in June. I am working this June for the first time in 5 years. It is a huge adjustment to go from a 10 month contract to a 12 month contract. I dislike working in July more than June but it seems weird to not be preparing to shut down for several weeks and regroup.

In Loving memory
Gary L. Crouch
Feb. 18, 1955 - May 9, 2009
My Uncle Gary was killed in a motorcycle accident on Saturday. Today was the memorial service and graveside service. One of my other uncles said it was fitting that it poured rain because my Uncle Gary was always trying to dunk someone in the lake.
I went to college in Springfield where my Aunt and Uncle live. My Uncle always took care of any car trouble (or any other trouble for that matter) that I had. I am so lucky to have such a large and caring family. My mother is the oldest of nine children. My Uncle Gary was married to the fifth sister in the family. Please keep my Aunt and my two cousins in your prayers as they deal with this loss.

Here is a side view of the child size chairs our son uses. I will probably put some of my collection of old garden cans out here in a few days.

My husband brought home a huge barrel from work. It has two small openings on the top, one we left the original size to use an an overflow and the other we made larger to fit the down spout. He drilled a hole in the side for the spigot go in. The he covered the top with landscape cloth to keep those pesky mosquitoes from finding a new place to lay eggs. It was too dark to photograph the finished product when he finished so I will have show it off tomorrow. We will also see how well it works tomorrow with the forecasted rain.

We left Wednesday for a meeting for my work at the University of Missouri - did I mention that I work from home? Sometimes it's wonderful, sometimes not. Aaron and Joe went with me. We had fun at the hotel and even got Aaron to get into the pool just a little bit. We managed to squeeze in some shopping and found Aaron some great clothes in the next size up at a huge savings.
I'm hoping to post my kitchen photos for http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/2009/04/show-us-your-house-friday.html
