Home study and the Collins Clan

Well, we have our final home study interview scheduled for Friday. I'm so excited to finally have this first phase behind us. Our social worker (we'll call her A) is great. She made us feel right at home during our interviews. I'm not used to talking about myself so much (neither is KC), so that part was a little weird for us. Haha. But all in all, they've gone by so smoothly. Our next steps will involve A LOT more paperwork. So pray for us as we delve deeper into this process. I've heard adoption referred to as a "paper pregnancy" and seeing what we have to do next makes me believe it!  :)  But I don't care - I'm ready to dive in head first. It feels like we've been waiting f-o-r-e-v-e-r to get to this point. We obviously haven't, but doesn't the wait seem unbearable when you're eager to see someone or do something?

I'm excited to say that KC and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on Sunday. Yes, our anniversary fell on Easter Sunday. This is the 2nd year it's happened. It makes having a date night/day/weekend a little harder because Easter weekend is reserved for our extended families. But we managed to sneak away for one day. We had a blast. I love that we're still able to goof off with each other. I know it sounds cheesy, but I'm loving him more and more each day we're together. (cue 'Awwwww's from the crowd) God has given us glimpses of His future plans He has for our lives, and we know we'll need to rely on Him and each other to accomplish them. So here's to many more years of marriage to a great and godly man. I know that as the spiritual leader of our family, he'll never steer us wrong.

We had a lot of stuff going on this weekend. But, we all enjoyed it. We were able to go to Silver Dollar City again. Nowhere near as many people there, so the boys got to ride a lot of rides. Then, Sunday we went to my grandma's house for Easter lunch. So, in honor of our fun time we had this Easter weekend, I'd like to post a few pictures.

Begging to have the skunk hat and pop guns. Lol

To the stocks!
