Pilgrimage to PA

Well we made our pilgrimage to PA... We spent 32 hours in the car and ordered the same meal at MC Donald's 3 times! (yuck)
The kids did great; Aaron talked a lot and I don't think he watched a single move completely, Zack on the other hand is a champ! I told Zack that the trip would be about 16 movies long and he decided to take that literally and he watched as many as he could! Over all the trip went well; Jon and I took turns driving and sleeping so we got to do it straight through and that means more time with the family! ;o)

Ethiopia is Raining Referrals!

Well today 6 more referrals came in; 3 were baby girls. We are very excited for all the happy families but also hesitant for what to hope for... This is most likely the last week that families receiving referrals will make it through court before the seasonal closure. The courts in Ethiopia close from August 6-October for the raining season. We would have loved a referral by now but now we almost hope we do not get one till October so we will not need to wait a extra month for our little girl. Referral to Court date is about 5 weeks so with the court closure it would add bit more time to get to our baby. We are just going to leave it in G-d's hands and whenever she comes our way we will be thrilled! :O)

Oh and by the way, Jon starts his sabbatical Friday at 5:00. Yippee!!!!!!!!!

Father's Day in Durango

For Father's day we went to Durango, Colorado, and stayed at our friends Joe and Nina's family's cabin. The Dads went fishing for the weekend and then we all rode Thomas the Tank Engine on Father's day. The Moms and kids made T-shirts for the Dad's to wear for the train... Paul was the Bad to the Bone dad, Joe was motorcycle dad, and Jon was the World's best ;o) We had a great time!

Na Na Bat Man and a little Napoleon...

Going a little crazy waiting on a referral so I thought I would lighten the mood. Aaron will wear this outfit anywhere; isn't he cute!

Adoption Update

Still waiting... Our friends Andrea and Ryan sent their dossier to Ethiopia at the same time as us and they got 2 referrals last Tuesday. They did use a different agency but I hope that this is a sign our time will be here soon! The court in Ethiopia closes on or around August 6th for about 6-8 weeks, so I hope either a referral comes ASAP or not till September or October.

Can you believe 11 years

It was 11 years ago today that Jon and I tied the knot... To celebrate we went to a spa for a massage and it was just wonderful! We are so blessed to have found each other so early in life, and to still feel so much in love...

Aaron and his big boy bike

Aaron is just getting so big! Jon took the boys to Zack's school parking lot to ride bikes and Aaron wants to be a Big Boy like Zack going over curbs and up and down ramps; he is just such a little daredevil!
