I promise, I haven't fallen off the face of the planet. We've had a lot going on at our house. The agency that gives us a court date has our paperwork and a time frame they need to give us the date. That being said, reality has set in BIG time! Yesterday, 2 friends plus my parents were here helping rearrange the living room. Now I'm painting Catherine's chest of drawers. I have a paint picked out for the girls' room, but will wait until closer to travel. I want as little as possible to disrupt what is our norm. Sounds silly since it's about to be majorly disrupted. However, after 5 years of sharing a room, Catherine and Samuel will be in seperate ones. This will happen as close to Hannah coming home as possible so they can have all the time they can together. It's just a room away and Samuel could camp out while Caleb is getting used to his bed being in there. Details that will soon be figured out. I must say, the progress feels really good. We did go buy some clothes for Hannah to add to what we'd already gotten. Still don't know for sure her size, so we will have to wait for some of it.
Will post pics when I can. Just trust me for now that it's looking really good!

I hope that you'll get a court date soon. You're so lucky that S & C get along well and love sharing a room. My sister and I have always been very close and have gotten along well....that said, we shared a room for 14 years and it was definitely a point of contention between us. We both had such different habits that it was hard to share a small space. I was clean and she was messy. I'd stay up late, reading and she'd want to go to sleep.* The next day, it would switch and she'd want to read. One of us wanted the fan on and the other didn't.

*I don't think we ever had a set bed time. Our parents had a very loosey-goosey approach to childrearing. I generally gave myself a bedtime based on how tired I felt, generally no later than 9 but once every couple of weeks I'd be up till 1am, though usually not on a school night.
