Well, we got our fingerprints done by Homeland Security in St. Louis on Friday!! The girls were pretty excited to go through the metal detectors, and Todd, Sophia and I even got a very special "wanding" from one of the 3 armed guards at the entrance!! I wished I could have taken a picture with our new armed friends, but, no cameras allowed. We were in and out in about 20 minutes, and decided to head to the St. Louis Zoo for a free afteroon!
I've got to say that even with the warmer weather and no snow, Friday at the park was pretty chilly. I wondered if there would be any animals out for us to see, and worried if these sculptures would be the only ones!!
The penguins and the apes were a big hit....but I was glad it was free to get in, because I was ready to head home after a couple of hours!
No more news on the homestudy/DCFS front, but I'm hoping to get ahead on some of the paperwork this week....oh, wait...while we also get ready for the semester to start on Monday...AGHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Feeling a little overwhelmed this week, but excited about doing life with som amazing college students this Spring!!
