Tomorrow is our first of many meetings/classes to become Foster Parents. We are so excited! A friend told us that they are very negative, probably so that you have a true sense of what it is like.
I just finished reading Another Place at the Table. Its an autobiography of a Foster Mom and she doesn't pull any punches. She tells it just like it happened to her in all it's gritty truth. It was a good read and a page turner. Even despite all the awful things she experience being a Foster Mom and all the horrible things she exposed her kids to inadvertently she remains positive.
Jason is going to read it next.

Finally bought the yarn in the right colors to start my sisters Camp Hoodie from Spud & Chloe. I wish that I could be using their yarn since their colors are so vibrant and wonderful, but I had to settle on Lion Brand Vanna's Choice. This under taking is going to take awhile. It starts out by casting on 186 stitches the most I've ever had on my needles before. I am excited for the challenge.
