This is NOT a date!

I repeat, this is not a date!
It is the 8th grade dance. And this is Noelle with a boy named Ethan.

The protector, Kaylee.

Tuckered Out

Some days we nap and some days we don't, and some days we fall asleep sitting up!

Temesgen is our son!!

I am so excited that I am blogging before I call Scott. Oops! Temesgen passed court today and is officially, according to Ethiopian courts anyway, our son. Isn't he handsome!

Garage Sale and Cookie Stand

We usually do have a spring garage sale, and I felt it was really necessary this year with a graduation open house and an additional child coming soon! So we plunged in Friday afternoon and Saturday. The weather was pretty pathetic for May, but we did OK. We decided that all the proceeds would go to Scott's sister's adoption of a boy from China. Yeah!! Scott even made monster cookies for he and Sabrina to sell. We probably would have sold more if we actually could have gotten her to sit at the stand for more than a couple minutes at a time. But we made $350 to send to the Heasslers in Colorado. Expect the check in a couple days, Rach!

Court date!

Wow, we have a court date. Well one of three anyway. Our agency called and they said they got three court dates and were not sure which one was ours:) But on May 17, 18 or 20th our son will appear in court and we will know if he is to be a part of our family! If he passes court we will be travelling to pick him up in the next few months. So exciting! So many changes!

So handsome!

Jake is the handsome guy on the left. Oh, yeah, he is that tall! 6'4"

Jake and his date, Julia. She's beautiful and they look great!

What a perfect pair!
