So Much to Report!
We have been so busy lately, and on top of that, our Mac's hard drive decided to fail, so it was not really exciting for us. We were so glad today when my friend was able to finish working on it and put a new hard drive in. In the meantime, we decided to get our old laptop's hard drive replaced, so that next time we are in this situation, we'll at least have something to fall back on. Even though it is ... a PC.
The past couple of days, I've been in meeting with several children's ministers from around the US who were helping us with deciding the direction of some of our resources at work. Abbey was a gracious hostess that decided to fix some wonderful goodies for everyone to eat. But, before we served them, we decided Reed needed to taste test them.
The minicupcakes definitely got his approval. Reed also started a new preschool since we last blogged. He is going to the school with several of his friends from church including his best friend, Britton. Reed goes on Mondays and Fridays from 9-12 which is a nice break for Abbey (which is really not a break, just time for her to get a few things done.).
Today, we got EXCELLENT news.
WE got the first ruling for our boys!!! Nash and Will are closer to coming home than ever!
So, now we are in a 10 day waiting period. After the 10 day waiting period, the agency will apply for final ruling and depending on how fast the birthmother signs the decree will depend on when we can ask for an appointment from AIT. We're hoping that it will be mid-September, which is not really far away. If it is mid-September, Will will only be 4.5 months when we get him. We got Reed when he was 6.5 months. It will be really different having a baby that little.
Tonight, our good friend Abbie stopped by since she was in town for business.
We also shopped at the consignment sale last week, and got some INCREDIBLE deals. We are so excited about everything that we were able to get. We saw Santa Claus and he found quite a few awesome toys for the boys for Christmas.
Reed loves it when Mommy makes Mr. Potato Head say "What the What?"
