We have a travel date!

That's right, my devoted followers, we FINALLY have a date to travel to our sweet girl's country! We will be there on August 20th! That's 32 days! Wow!  We are beyond excited. We are still lacking about $4000 for airfare, so if anyone feels like bumping our FSP, we would be most grateful. 

Now that we are getting so close, I promise to update the blog more often. However, I thought today I would share some pictures of our family and life. 

Our garage sale to raise adoption funds....

The kids helped out and had a great time....even when it rained.
This basket was the source of hours of entertainment.
A decided to see if he could bake a potato. It took all day, but it ALMOST got done. Gotta love "Beakman's World" on Netflix...tons of fun ideas.

A loves to cook. This is a cheesecake we made to take to dinner at my parents' house. Delicious.
The drive in Root Beer Stand....with baby size mugs!
Nothing like a frosty mug of root beer.
Tree house picnic
More tree house fun

Park fun
Creek fun
13 school years between each of us. This is my baby sister's graduation.
E with Aunt Katie...too cute not to share!
E and M at an historic farm park
Glow necklaces at the drive-in movie 
Dance revue...M is shy....
No, she's really not!
R's dance revue costume...boys can take dance too.
Totally psyched and ready to dance!

We can hardly wait to meet Sweet Girl and bring her home to be a part of our family. There is no limit to what she can accomplish. She just needs to be given a chance. 

Blessings from our family to yours,
