Flat Reed: Wichita Falls, TX
We've had a busy day! We slept late and then had breakfast around 12:00 noon. So, does that really count as breakfast? Blanton has enjoyed getting to know Flat Reed. I am sure that they are really going to like the real Reed!
Much conversation has been had this weekend about whether or not we would get another animal (for those of you who don't know, Jack the cat is now gone as well). I am not an animal guy, so not having an animal in our house is not that big of a deal for us. Rosie is a sweet little dog, but then again, I've seen alot of sweet dogs and I still don't want one!
Jaime is going to make sure that Flat Reed gets a good Texas education. Blanton and Jaime both graduated from DBU (where Abbey got her masters) and that is one of the approved universities that Reed can attend.
We went to see "Evan Almighty" today. I was a little squimish about going to see it, because I thought it might be kind of sacreligious, but it actually had a really good message. There was only one word that shouldn't have been used and most kids today don't even consider it to be a bad word.
We've had a good time getting to be with family, but we are SO ready to be home! We fly home tomorrow! Abbey and I love to go places, but we really love coming home to our own house, our own bed, and our life that God has so blessed us with.
In case some of you are wondering if we have any information about getting Reed home, we have not. Everyone on our adoption board says that when you go out of town you get information. We didn't! Hopefully, we'll hear something soon!
