Postcardsby Angie

Since I know we have readers from several different states, I wanted to pass along a request from my cousin, Becky, on behalf of her daughter’s kindergarten class:

Hey friends,
I’m wondering if you all could do me a favor. My daughter’s kindergarten class is learning about maps and globes right now. They are hoping to get people who live in different states and countries to send a postcard to the class so they can learn about different places and find those places on the maps. I was hoping you could all send a postcard from where you live to Alixie’s class for me. You can send them to:

Mrs. Black’s Class
13717 S. Shaggy Peak Dr.
Riverton, UT 84096

Then if you could just write: To Alixie and class, and then give a few facts or details about the place you live, that would be great! If you could mail the postcards by this Saturday that would be the best :)

I would REALLY, REALLY appreciate your help in this, I figure the more postcards they get the more my child will actually learn, so I’m really trying to do my part to round some up!!!
Thanks so much,

Adoptive Couple Interviewby Angie

Today was the next step in our adoption process:  Jean came to our home and had an interview with both of us together.  We also gave her a tour of our condo and introduced her to Jaquie.  We did a preliminary safety checklist, and she talked about what sorts of things we need to take care of now, versus what we need to be prepared to do around the time of placement (i.e., buying a second fire extinguisher versus installing a baby gate on the stairs).  We’ll be meeting with her again sometime in October.

We have Jim’s interview and some paperwork left to do, and also the project that is most nerve-wracking of all (to me): our photo collage.  We need to put together several scrapbook-ish pages of pictures with fun captions and stuff.  Unfortunately, neither of us are very concientious photographers, so we have very few from the last five years.  If any of you happen to have pictures with us in them and would be willing to mail/email us a copy, we’d really appreciate it!
