New Beginnings

Last time in Drosche Land (cue black & white memory scene) things were not going so well.  Disappointment/frustration abounded and a sad pessimism loomed.  Thus you might have been wondering where I've been in the past few days.  Wallowing in self pity?  Dealing with more bad news?  Well, I'm happy to say no, not really though.  See, one of the frustrations in the last post was due to the continued delays in the opening of the new building at Trinity.  Well, lo and behold the very next day after said post, we received the Occupancy Permit!  However, with this excited news came a lot more work.  That meant that Wednesday night was go time.  Everything else from the old building needed to be moved so the new building could be opened and used on Thursday.  Luckily my Mom and Dad dropped by to help by taking the boys home with them so we could stay late and help move without them whining running around.  Plus they got to spend some time with their DD and G, so it was a win-win.  Everyone at Trinity pitched in, Early Childhood and Elementary teachers, and everything was moved and as ready as it could be.  Thursday and Friday brought very early mornings as we had to get there to get the days started.  They also brought late nights as we stayed behind to help get the days ended.  Thus the lack in posting.  By the time we made it home we were exhausted.  As much as I wanted to blog, I just couldn't find the energy.  In fact, I went to bed at 8:30 last night and for me that us unheard of!  Hopefully this weekend will bring some much-needed rest and recuperation from the whirlwind of last week, emotionally, mentally, and physically.  All in all though things are going very well with the new building.  It is awesome!  Sure there are kinks that need to be worked out, but that will be the case no matter what.  I'm sure that when K-4th move over in the summer we will encounter our own share of kinks as we begin a new school year in a new (did I mention Awesome!) building.  So, there's one prayer that went from "Not Right Now" to a "Yes".  I also have to take a moment to brag on Amy a  bit.  She, along with others I know, worked her bottom off to get this building built, finished, and at the awesome level that it is.  It is her baby in a way, a chance of a lifetime for her to build Trinity's program, her program, into something huge and awesome, which is exactly what it is poised to be.  There's a lot of work left but she is excited, eager, and qualified to take it on!  I am so proud of her so I had to take a moment to say so.  :)   

As for the "Not Right Now" concerning the adoption, we don't have a different answer and in fact we are still working through receiving that one.  But through continued prayer and discussion we are getting there.  I can't discount the support from our family and friends either, they have been a tremendous help.  We continue to work on our paperwork and the whole process and we will see what time brings.  We are not expecting a change in our answer, that's not realistic.  But we continue to press on toward our goal, we love Margaux and are working toward bringing her home, day by day.

I think that brings up up to date on the past week here in Drosche Land.  I'll leave you with some pictures of the boys.  These pictures are from Thursday morning, the first day in the new building.  The boys are now fully and officially using their backpacks everyday and they are loving it.  We were all so bleary-eyed yet excited that morning, it was a lot of fun.  Jack was adorable with his backpack and Braeden was too.  However, as is sometimes the case with him, when it came time to take his picture her was pouting.  I'm not really sure about what, but here it is on film (or not I guess, digital image?), his pout (kind of cute) immortalized!

All is well,excited and tired, here in Drosche Land.
