Schools Out ! ! !

Well, school is out for the summer,,, this is going to be a VERY long 12 weeks, so far they have disagreed on which swim trunks are whos, and how the video game works and they have not been out a week yet... I think I may be crazy by the time they go back,, OH WAIT,,, I AM ALREADY THERE!!!!

My grandma was here for two weeks, mostly to see Cody and Dylan in their promotion program. Cody from 1st to 2nd and Dylan from K to 1st... I always love when my Grandma is here,, I only get to see her once a year, sometimes twice.

We went to Janet & JR's (we meet them through our agency & FCC) to celebrate Cali being home a year... I got my baby girl fix,,, it might last me a week or two.. ha ha ha!!!! yeah right, who am I kidding !!!!

Some GOOD friends of ours were here for Memorial weekend and had so much fun!!!! I miss them already....

OH YEAH!!!! 12 weeks and one day and NO I-171!!!!!!! :(

May 2007

Well, I can't believe that we are still waiting. Last Mothers Day, I wrote that Leah would be home by now. Guess that's not happening.. it's in 8 days. But this last month has seemed to fly by..... Easter was fun with Zackery being able to hunt easter eggs without mommy & daddy's help.. it was too funny, he find them and then throw them on the ground to open them... Only used plastic this year.. That was a good thing!
Getting to meet Sindy at her baby shower, finally after emailing for months, they live about 20 minutes away, and our girls will be close in age. How exciting!!!!! And their LID is 11/18/05... I went on a field trip with Cody and his 1st grade class to the Phoenix Zoo.. HE RODE A CAMEL --- BY HIMSELF!!!I was so excited that he did, he is the one that does not try new things... I have pictures!!!

Kyle is NOW 16,,, OMG!!!! We had his party the weekend before, same weekend as he had his Nascar Race tickets..He we so VERY excited because Jeff Gordon won Saturdays race, from Pole Position, 1st time at PIR, and he also tied Dale Sr. Race wins.

And our trip to CA was GREAT!!!! VERY BUSY but, so much fun!!!! Cody & Dylan did so good handling their own rolling backpacks through the airports...And they liked doing it.. My Uncle Carl, asked "Where's the new baby"... I just about cried when I had to tell him we haven't gone yet!!!

And we came back to MORE REFERRALS,,, up to Nov. 1st... AT this rate WE might still have Leah home by Christmas?!?!?!?!!

STILL NO I-171..... I did call Alex at USCIS.... they are still working on Feb.... We sent ours in March.. Oh the joy of waiting,, ha ha ha ha!!!!!

Welcome Everyone!!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to see where we are in our journey, of adoption, to bring Leah home from China. We enjoy everyone asking questions, I know I never get tired of talking about it.......
