I actually can't believe September is here...I remember when our dossier was sent to E in November how far away 12 months felt...now one year of waiting is almost upon us. I say every year after summer is over "now we will get to catch up with all the people we didn't see over summer because summer is so crazy" . Yet, somehow, every fall seems to whip by and before you know it Christmas is a few days away and we really haven't had a chance to see anyone we wanted to see.
We always seem to have a fall wedding to attend and this year is no exception. Our lovely friends Eric and Sarah are getting married in two weeks....their wedding will be a fun-filled weekend celebration starting with a wiener roast on the Friday night, wedding ceremony and reception on the Saturday and a waffle brunch on the Sunday :) I can't think of a better way to pass a weekend then celebrating our friend's marriage with a group of people we love!
Thanksgiving will arrive so quickly, really only 6 weeks after September long, then Halloween which we will celebrate in Vancouver - hope my mom hands out candies to the kiddies...I love doing that!
Then the big surge to Christmas happens....we are always busy wrapping things up at work and always have the big push to meet deadlines, there are Christmas parties of all shapes and sizes to attend, baking to be done, gifts to be bought...it feels sometimes like we can't breathe and then a big sigh of relief when we make it to a week of relaxation with family and friends during the Christmas break.
Somewhere in there we hope to get our much anticipated referral for a wee one. Our agency update came this week and time lines indicate that referrals for infants under 3 years are taking 8-14 months (one month less than last update). I am hoping and praying we see something before Christmas but if it takes the 14 months...well, we'll manage.
While summer is ending, I feel like something new is beginning...it is starting to feel like we are in the homestretch...and can see a tiny glimpse of the bright light ahead. I think being busy this fall will make the time pass even quicker.
Happy Labour Day Long Weekend to All
