Random Updates

* Our dossier is in the mail! Sent it out on Thursday. This is HUGE! Now we wait to get on the waiting list.

* My son's fishing pole broke so he decided to take a stick, tie some line to it and put a worm on a hook. He caught 4 trout and a large mouth bass! AMAZING! (pics to come)

* I slept 2 hours last night (before I left for vacation)

*I have not run once since my half marathon. Tomorrow I start back to it so I can be ready for the Hood to Coast relay in August.

* I bought 2 books at an outlet store today for $5 each. They are the first and third in a three book series. I couldn't find the second one. It's been a while since I have read a good novel.

* Facetime rocks my face off!

* I sang Owl City's Fireflies while catching fireflies tonight. I love fireflies.

* Imagine the world if we all decided to adopt a child...

Adoption Update

We are almost there! We have finished all our classes, got all our paper work finished and notarized and we are ready to move forward! Gulp. As soon as we mail this off we our agency will send it to Ethiopia and we will wait for word that we are on the waiting list! Wow.

Many of my dear blog friends are part of that. Thank you. We are just about done with our t-shirt pre-orders and have sold about 70!! Thank you so much. I am truly grateful for how many have joined us on this journey. The shirts will be ready on July 12. I am super excited to see them and see many of you wearing them. What a cool opportunity for so many to get a chance to raise awareness about adoption. Feel free to send people over to this blog or if they want to read more of the story.

If you still want to get your order in do it quick. $25 and you choose green or blue (add$5 if it needs to be shipped to you). Just click this link and you can order from there. If you don't have paypal or don't want to pay that way you can send a check or hand me cash.

Thanx again friends!!

Want to Buy an Adoption T-Shirt?

We have ordered the shirts, but ordered extras, so please contact me before you buy to see if we have the size. We may do a second order if they are all gone and more people want them.

So it's final. After your votes came in it is clear what 2 colors made it to the final. We will be taking orders for 2 weeks (of course you can order later than that) and then we will put the order in to the t-shirt company. Then it will take 1-2 weeks to get them printed and then you can get them. We are going with the fatigue green and true navy colors as you can see below. The shirts will go for $25 each and if you live locally to me that will be it. If you need them shipped just add $5 to the total. Every dollar goes to helping bring our 2 babies home.

I know that God will provide the money we need. I am in complete trust of that. It is the only way that this can happen. I also know that we need to do our part in it. I have never been good at asking people for money. I remember when I was a Boy Scout I hated going door to door selling junk. I just didn't want to bother people. And to ask people straight up for money was completely out of the question. So here I get to "ask" for your $$$ but give you something in return. So that's fun.

When you click the paypal button that corresponds with the color you want indicate the size you want. I hope you like it and the extra surprise that we are not sharing yet.

Adoption Tshirt Poll

I need your help. We are making a shirt to sell for our adoption and I want to know what color you like the best. There is a v-neck in there as well, but it probably won't work cost-wise, but thought I would put it in there anyhow. Thanx for your input.
