(my spell check isn't working for some reason and too lazy to re-read to make sure it's all correct.. sorry...)
Wow! It's been a bit crazy and hectic here lately! And I'm sure
it's only the beginning, but I'm SOOOO ready!!! :)
We got our VISAS on Monday!!!! :) We are still waiting to hear
our travel date, but thinking we will hear any day now! ;)
I put Keegans bed together and Curt and his dad went to go get the mattress
from a friend who was giving it to us! THANK YOU soooooo much!!!!
The boy’s rooms are officially MUCH smaller now, but I am ok with that and so
are Thad and Gavin! They are READY to get Keegan in their room! :)
We have a dresser for him and thanks to my SIL, Paula; we have a few 5-6
summer outfits for him!!! :) We will need to get a few fall things,
but don't know all the sizes yet! I'm thinking all 6 of our kids are
going to need shoes and clothes come fall! ;)
I'm so ready and excited to get Ella and Keegan, but yet I have this peace
and patience yet.... I know that God's timing is perfect and I'm ok with
that! I also know that the month of July is going to FLY by!!
Curt will be doing a work project from July 1-4th, then that Saturday we
have a church work project, the 10th-13th he will be in Haiti, fly’s home
around 5 pm on the 13th and then leaves by 3 am on the 14th-20th to go to
Mexico mission’s trip with our church! Dakotah gets to go with him and is absolutely
THRILLED and counting down the days til she can go!!! :)
After that we have our FAM JAM, our family VBS at church, and then the week
after that, which I think is July 30- Aug4 or 5th he will be in MI for his DM
Conference! Plus little things here and there in-between! ;)
Trying to stay on top of some school work with the kids, which I am not
succeeding so well this week... haha... And major cleaning and
purging going on and re-arranging, again, as well! I guess you call this
nesting? Didn't know that could happen when adopting!!
That's pretty much all we know right now! Just waiting on our travel
date so we can GO and plan better! :)
Oh, we did send Keegan and Ella a care package and we got pics of
Ella! LOVED seeing the pics!! Oh and we heard about a FB page for
adoptive families and we got to see a video of our lil man Keegan! Oh how
God knew I needed to see that! PLUS we've been getting some pics of of
him from another family that is adopting a child from the same floor he is
on.. In each and every one of those pics, he's smiling soooo big!!!!
:) Praying that the adjustment for him goes smoothly, and am a little
worried about Ella and adjustment... I really shouldn't say worried, b/c
I trust God, but since she is in Foster Care and more one on one care...
it may be harder for her... But it's all in God’s hands and I know we
will take a day at a time! :)
