The last pieces of the puzzle....

We are nearing the end of our home study process.  We completed our three hour long Child Passenger Safety Training last night, next week we will do our Children's Mental Health training and we have a few pieces of paper to turn in.  We also have Multicultural Parenting Class in September, but that can be done after they have written the rest of the study.

I just received an email from our case worker asking to schedule our home visit.   When I read those words I couldn't help but feel excited, but also really anxious.   It is scheduled for August 16th at 10am.  We are going out of town to Wisconsin Dells on the 13th and returning on the 15th, so this makes me a little bit nervous.   I know that I will feel the need to clean the house from top to bottom.  Brandon says we'll just have to make sure it's ready to go before we leave for The Dells.    Inside my mind, all I can think about is the imperfections of our house and how we can make things look as good as possible.   People tell me not to worry and that she'll just be making sure the home is safe for a child, but when you are in this spot, you can't help but worry! 

If anyone has been through this before and can offer some suggestions or reassurance, I'd love to hear from you!   Or if you want to help clean my house - I'll take that too!
