1 week!

At this time next week, my plane will be taking off for Ethiopia. I'll be leaving all my boys at home to go and get our girls. I think the only thing I can say for sure is that it is going to be a wild ride...

I'm happy that the family Scott and I hoped for will finally be a reality.
I'm excited to meet Bri and Des.
I'm nervous about leaving Jack, Logan and Scott.
I'm grateful my mom is coming with me.
I'm desperate to see the girls smiling.
I'm scared that something could go wrong while I'm in Ethiopia.
I'm anxious to go already...and to come home already.

Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3...

This is my trial run to see if I’ll be able to use the blogger email option to post updates while I’m in Ethiopia.  I’m also testing out whether I can post a photo…

Who's who?

Which little monkey:
  • Tore apart our office supplies looking for an envelope so he could send his friend a cell phone while she was on vacation?
  • Loves eating injera (an Ethiopian sour pancake served with every meal)?
  • Was worried that the fireworks on the 4th of July were hurting the Earth?

Which little love bug:
  • Was man enough to take a baby doll to show and share?
  • Still, at 4 years old, insists that he was never in Mama's belly, nor was he a baby, but was a big boy from "the neighborhood?"
  • Told me that his shorts were "striping wet" which apparently meant they were so dripping wet that he needed to strip out of them?

More photos!

Last week we got a few new photos of our sweet girls. I can't wait until they are home and we can finally get some smiley pics of Des and Bri!

I leave in two weeks. In terms of preparation, for the trip and around the house, I feel soooooo not ready. In terms of wanting to scoop them up and hold and love on them, I am soooooo beyond ready. Hang on girls...I'm coming soon!
