Jump Time!

Since our file was sent to Valle del Cauca 29 days ago…. that means our referral time frame of 30-60 days later STARTS TOMORROW!  Can you say JUMP JUMP JUMP?  I’ve been asked if I jump when the phone rings…. not until now.

Corresponding exactly with August 30th is the start of HOMESCHOOLING for year number TEN here at L.A.K.E. Academy.  Normally I don’t answer the phone when we’re doing school… but that all changes tomorrow!  Sorry, pupils.  I will need to emphasize the importance of staying in your seat and continuing your work if Mama/Teacher does answer the phone.  Usually if I happen to take a call, my children stealthily disappear.  I eventually hang up and find myself alone.  THAT is why I normally don’t answer the phone.  NEW RULE!  Stay in your chair, buster!

I’ve discussed the actual referral call with my husband/pilot on several occasions lately.  If the call comes and he’s on a flight…. he suggested waiting until the next day to get the information, so we could sit together, in blissful unity, looking at our girl’s darling face for the first time with each other.  I don’t think so.  I cannot wait.  Sorry.  If he is sitting in his office that particular day and can blast home in 30 minutes, I MIGHT be able to wait that long.  But NOT 24 hours.  Hello?  What do you think I am, a patient, caring wife?  Well, I am… sometimes.  :o)

On pins and needles.

    I can relate…I am a pilot’s wife too and we had that same conversation with our son’s adoption. Luckily our call came on one of the few days that he was home…we will see how it goes for number 2! Good luck! Can’t wait to see how it goes for you!

    Tim & Coy were @ the movies, when our call came. It was the longest (almost 1 hour) until they made it back home!!! There is NO WAY I could have waited 24 hours…I almost didn’t wait until he got home. I am glad I did, but boy was it hard! Praying your referral comes on his day off. I would almost call & give Beth his flight schedule, so she’ll call you on his day off :)
