Planning a trip

We are heading to Hawaii this summer with Sam and his best friend. We are major foodies and restaurants tend to be a major part of our vacations. I have spent the last week or so researching lots of things to do on this trip, since the young man coming with us has never been. Most of my focus been on the food. And I have found some great places that we havent been to before. We love to travel and getting to do that with our kids is the best thing in the world to me. Read more »

Sometimes things change.

Sometimes when you are doing something for a while, things that once worked are no longer the best fit. The agency that we started with was no longer a good fit for where we are on this journey and are in the middle of signing on with a new agency. We are excited to move forward with them. Read more »

Living life in this time of waiting.

During this waiting period we continue to live our lives and fill the time with things we love to do. Kim has been filling her’s with fostering kittens. It does require time but most of the time it brings her joy. The last couple weeks however have been filled with three very sick kittens two of which didn’t make Read more »

Settling back into routine

While it was wonderful to get to see our family it has been a relief to get back into the swing of normal life. Work, errands, schooling,more kittens that need fostering, everything that makes up our daily life is a comfort and we are glad to be home for now. Read more »

Headed back home.

As wonderful as it was to get to see everyone there is nothing quite as great as driving back home. Getting to enjoy each other’s company, listening to the radio, and making terrible jokes. Read more »

Spending time apart

Hysun had to make a short trip out of State to see his grandmother who has been ill. I wasn’t able to go with him this time and so we got to spend a couple of days apart. It’s not something that we do often but it is a useful reminder of how much we love and miss each other. Read more »

When Hysun doesn’t work from home.

Hysun is almost entirely work from home. The exception is when, a few times a year, his entire team will get together to spend the week doing some team building and planning. Next week is one of those weeks. We will drive to the city and spend the time enjoying the busyness of the city as well as restaurants that we Read more »

Oh what a day

So this is the last quiet day until at least Tuesday next week. Hysun is fixing the computer of Sam’s best friend(same one that Sam was with all last week). So he is coming for the weekend to get his computer back and hang out since it is such a long drive. But then we realized that the upcoming solar eclipse has Read more »

One word to describe our family

So we couldn’t agree on one word. We each had our own. So we are going to share them both. Kim’s word was nerdy. From the DnD sessions, massive collection of board games, and an extreme amount of fascination of how tech works(and how to secure it). She thinks that we definitely fit that word. Hysun says quirky Read more »

How do our kids feel about adopting?

Sam is 16 and Cait is 19. They are really excited about the idea of having a new sibling and getting to watch them grow up. They are excited to include the new sibling in family traditions and teach them about the things that are important to them like favorite books, games, tv shows and places that they love to go.
