Take a deep breath, get ready, set, and juggle. This seems to be the theme of my life. I say this like I am overwhelmed, but I am just the opposite. I love to be busy, and I love to serve. My newest adventure is directing "Beauty and the Beast" at our elementary school. This is my second year doing this, and I am so excited! I had 115 kiddo's come and audition. Everyone of them get a part of course, but it is so fun to see their cute faces, and hear their sweet voices. So much talent in this school! I love these kids.
Dance season has begun and is in full swing. Randilynn will be busy with dance 4 nights a week, and with playing the part of Babbette in the play. I am taking a dance class too, along with trying to find time for yoga, take care of my busy family, Ty's piano lessons, volunteering for the Foster Care Foundation, Jude's speech, and Early Intervention appts.
I am excited to start Peer Parenting for DCFS. I sure didn't last long not being involved as a foster parent. I just love to be able to help these kids who don't come from the best of circumstances, and to be able to help their families learn how to become better parents for their children. I have seen some parents change their lives, and become better for their family. I also have seen many parents fail after getting their children home. This is why it is so important to have peer parents involved with these families. A peer parent is involved in helping when the children are getting ready to transition back home, and to offer support when needed. These families need more support, and I am excited to be able to help.Our home is full, but the idea of still being involved makes me happy.
