Winter Break at the Beach!

What a great view!

W1 playing basketball!

W2 with his sweet pal!

My little Buddy!

We had a great long weekend at the beach. We stayed in a very nice oceanfront hotel with an indoor water park with two other families. The boys loved the water park and we spent the majority of the time hanging out there. W1 loved the basketball goal and W2 enjoyed the lazy river. It was so relaxing and it was hard to get up for school this morning.

We heard from our social worker yesterday who is making a few revisions on our home study. Hopefully, it will be sent to CIS soon! Say a prayer for us!

Still waiting to be on the waiting list!!

Well, no real news on the adoption front. Our home study revisions were sent to our social worker and then hopefully it will be sent SOON to CIS for approval and then we will be on the wait list!!

I met with the mom and her two adopted sons from Ethiopia yesterday. They were so precious! She was so sweet to answer all of my questions.

Earlier this week my tiger den went to the fire station. The boys were a hoot-I doubt the firemen will ever forget us. W2 told them that our cat knew kung fu!! We went out to the smokehouse to see what it would be like in a real fire. The boys went in the house and crawled through it and then had to go out the window. Well, I thought I was supposed to do the same but I think they were afraid I would break the window!! "Ma'am, you can use the door if you like!" Ha!

Well, have a great weekend! Hopefully, we will have some movement on our adoption in the next few weeks.

An Exciting Week

W2 cracking me up!

This past Tuesday we had quite a scare. The wind was blowing so hard and at 6:30 in the morning we heard a huge boom and a tree in our backyard destroyed our covered porch and part of our roof. Luckily, it did not come through the house and no one was hurt!

W1 was out of school two times this past week. We have another doctors appointment this week to see if he is a carrier for strep and to talk about having his tonsils removed.

W1 and W2 had their first basketball games on Saturday. They did great. W2 had a good time-it was his first basketball game, ever. W1 made 8 points and is really dribbling the ball well.

Have a great weekend!

2009 and still sick!!

Learning how to shoot marbles at our pack meeting.

My little monkey.

W1 always has a football!

Hullabulu-or something like that.

We love Wii!

Hi everyone! W1 and I are still sick-We are both on an antibiotic and I had to pick him up from school today. He slept for almost 2 hours before lunch which is unheard of!! I think on top of the strep he has a sinus infection! W2 and Dad B are still doing great-knock on wood.

We heard from our social worker today who has turned in our home study and hopefully there won't be too many revisions! I have enjoyed "stalking" other blogs to see new referrals and can't believe how far we have come in the adoption process. Now, the waiting begins...

On an exciting note, a family in our little town who has adopted two boys from Ethiopia contacted us yesterday. I hope next week when I am better, we can meet for lunch. I am thrilled to have this new contact!

Hope everyone out there stays well!
