one of the letters we were waiting for showed up in our mailbox today! yea!
if you have been praying for us, thank you!
this certainly was no coincidence--no, this letter was heaven sent!
other items worth noting today:
--tricia and glenn were officially crowned as world's best listeners this morning in my office.
as we sat with our coffee cups and i spilled my guts about all my worries.
i love them.
--the big kids (and john) jogged to my parents' house tonight.
josh is trying to get in shape for football.
and anna just can't let him do anything on his own.
--ben swam for 2 1/2 hours today.
then he ate like a little piggy.
and then he was supposed to take a nap but instead kept saying "UP!" over and over.
finally at 7:00pm, on the dot, mr. no nap went to sleep.
--i have convinced a couple of friends to join me in selling some crafty stuff at a small local event in october--my next attempt at raising some more money for our adoption fund.
now my head is swirling with craft ideas and booth decorating ideas.
i hope i can sleep tonight!
--i bought a maxi dress and a couple of cheap (but super cute) tank tops at walmart today.
i am praying that no one asks me if i'm preggo when i wear the dress.
do you have to be super skinny to wear these things?
ack! i hope i have the guts to wear it 'cause it's adorable.
--open house for the kiddos' school is one week from today. school starts a few days after that. i think it's time for a quick, emergency overnight trip, just the five of us, to celebrate the end of our summer break.
ok. i think that about does it for today.
hope y'all had a happy thursday!
oops, almost forgot a picture...what was i thinking?
