Taking A Little Break

This next week Garrett (9) and Paige (4) start their break from school. The other kids all still have school but the two that are on a year round schedule are off until the end of March. Are you confused yet? Yeah, me to.

Anyways, my days will be filled with keeping them entertained while at the same time trying to put the finishing touches on the Little League opening day carnival which is next Saturday the 8th.

Well, putting the finishing touches on it might be an understatement. I actually haven't done a whole lot yet. I am doing the same games as last year so basically just need to find everything and get it organized. This is actually a huge step for me. Usually I would have been worrying about this for over a month. I'm getting better at putting things in perspective.

This past week we did get an answer from Ethiopia and we will be allowed to adopt two children four or younger. We put on our application one or two. We decided to let God be in control. If we are meant to adopt two we will get two. If not we will adopt one. We are OK with both choices.

So, things are finally moving along again and their is definitely light at the end of the tunnel. I am so very very excited. I can't wait to meet the new little addition(s) to our family and hold them in my arms.

Because this next week is going to be so busy getting ready for the weekend and entertaining my two youngest (I promised them a trip to Disneyland) I am going to take a little bloggy break.

I will be back next week with lots of stories to tell and pictures to share.

Have a great week my friends.

YEAH!!! for Ethiopia :) I can't wait to meet the new member(s) of the family.

Have a super week, get some rest and oh yeah - do the Jungle Cruise for me, would ya?

After practically growing up at the park, it's been 10 years and I'm in total, utter withdrawal.

I hope you get alot done this week, and the carnival is a HUGE success. :) Enjoy Disneyland. I can't imagine being able to make a day trip out of it. We live so far away from amusement parks that those are vacations for us.

Can't wait to hear all about the fun you had during your 'break'. I am jealous you are going to Disneyland! I have been wanting to go for awhile, but it just hasn't been in our cards! Have a blast!

Congratulations on the adoption go-ahead! Be sure to post lots of pictures when the new kids arrive!

Baseball is in full swing here as well, so I guess we'll be swapping ball game stories for the next two months!

Have a great break and enjoy Disney!

Blessings.

Have a great break! My kids would love to tag along with you to Disneyland. We are hoping to go there next year (we went in 2006). Since we did a big Disney trip to Flordia last fall, my hubby has declared this the year of no Disney, but the kids are still wishing! :)

Wow, it's really happening! Can't wait to "meet" them.
