Home Study, trains and meal plan...

This weekend we had a home study visit with our social worker...we were really worked up and anxious, but it went well. Our social worker is great, and really put us at ease. We talked about our plans for childcare...how we met...why we want to adopt...why China...and she also spoke to one of our references. We asked Todd's God Parents, Rudy and Nancy to join in the fun!! It was a nice morning....long, but very exciting!

This coming Saturday, she will be back again for our individual interviews to discuss our childhoods, our relationships with our families and our finances. We will be nervous about all that...we have a lot of things to work through with our family discussion.
On Sunday, we went with some friends to Cumberland to enjoy the Western Maryland Scenic Train Ride. The train travels from Cumberland to Frostburg and you get time for lunch in Frostburg before the return trip back. It was a long travel day because it takes 3.5 hours from our house to Cumberland. Six adults, one teenager and 3 little girls...and I think we all survived!

Meal Plan for the week:

Monday: ham and cheesy noodle bake and salad

Tuesday: chicken pesto pasta

Wednesday: chicken teriyaki with twice baked potatoes

Thursday: tacos

Friday: shrimp scampi with linguine and zucchini

Saturday: Waterfowl Festival in our town...Scossa (our favorite italian) for the atmosphere of a buzzing town!!

Sunday: filet mignon, baked potatoes, and salad (or mashed potatoes and green beans)

Have a great week!!
