Everything's better when Alcott's involved

Monday morning. I spent a few hours with Alcott over the weekend and, as usual, I came away feeling so whole and content. He is truly the reason I never had the biological children I longed for in my twenties and early thirties. I could never have been Alcott's CASA if I had children of my own because I wouldn't have been able to dedicate enough time and emotional energy to him. One of those "unanswered prayers", I guess. The boy and I will be rooting on the Ohio State Buckeyes tonight as they take on the Florida Gators and I will have visions of a different #10 quarterbacking the Buckeyes in six years. (Yes, I will be crying as I think about that.) So often now I see the man he is becoming instead of the boy he was when I met him. It's not just in the more angular planes of his face but in the grace and poise he shows. He's maturing into someone I'm truly proud of and it makes me so happy to think that I've had a part in it.

TCB and I had a fairly boring weekend. We were going to BBQ last night but then ended up napping until 8pm and going to the Hawaiian BBQ place instead.

I got next to nothing accomplished but spent lots of time with my two favorite boys. Successful weekend, I think.

Sounds like a great weekend to me! I had to say goodbye to one of my favorite boys again, which is always hard. The good news is that his room is now neater that it's been since he got home.

There's nothing wrong with napping :)
