we're just waiting to be certified now...

Our case worker will come out one more time to give us our ID badges and get us started with our training schedule since we have to take 20 hours of training a year. Then we'll just wait for the first call! I'm so excited and nervous and scared and just very, very relieved! Our case worker estimates 2-3 weeks for the certification to go through.

We did find out that our crib wasn't up to safety standards like we thought. So now we have to buy a new crib. They are expensive!! Now that most cribs are convertible into different types of beds, people aren't getting rid of them either. I looked on Craig's List last night, and there was nothing in our area at all.

Today I feel very good about everything since we're done with everything we need to do. Also, we're going to plant the rest of the baby trees (hopefully) today. We did 1100 over the weekend, but the remaining 300 need to be planted by hand. I'm praying that it will go quickly. Maybe the cold and the extra rain made the ground a little better for hand planting. It was really easy when we spot-planted in between existing trees, but when we hand plant in the plowed ground, it's a little more difficult. I love planting trees. So, so, so much. It's my favorite part of tree-farming. Wish I enjoyed the other parts this much...
