On Accident or on Purpose? Hope just can't seem to get these two words straight.... Hope "mom I peed in my bed on purpose!" Mom "well why would you do that Hope?" " Hope "Mom, because it was on purpose and not an accident!" Hope "Mom, Noah hit me on accident today." Mom "Hope it wasn't on purpose?" Hope "No mom it was an accident and he needs a time out...now!" I keep correcting her but she says she's confused;) So am I....I love 4 year olds;)

As if our beautiful, Mommy/Daddy day could get better...it did, when our mail lady brought us our envelope from Tallahassee! Woohoo, I literally prayed, God let it be here today so that we can get this thing to China, this month. Sure enough-it's here!

Our papers were sent last week to get certified by the Secretary of state, in Tallahassee. I am expecting it to get here any day now...We still have to make copies and then send them off to Houston, for the authentication process. Then we will need to make some more copies, before sending it off to CCAI for final review/translation- before it's sent to China. We're hoping to be LOI in China by September (our deadline was October). So these are the final, grueling, moments, where we are holding our breaths, before the deep sigh of relief. Homeschooling begins August 29, and it ends in November-we're hoping that we will travel around this time without worry. Its like jumping hurdles, it can be exhausting...so I've started working out today to get into better shape! Freddy and I have agreed to lose a few pounds...not that we're totally motivated, but we do need to start before it will really be hard for us, to shed these cookie dough pounds. It sure will help with the energy levels, focus and add some fun for the kids-they laugh so hard when they see me trying to work out to TAE-BO!

They performed a TB test on baby Faith and she just tested negative-yeah. It's sad that we are not with her while she is going through all this poking;( On another note, it's cute that we are accumulating a little medical bill in China for Faith's-they've notified us for this bill;) I'm getting the dreams, the worries about her health and I am getting anxious about our little girl being on the other side of the world. We're praying for our paperwork, and we're hoping to get LID in China in August...so we can move along and prepare for visas and travel. School starts August 29 for our kids and it ends in November-that would probably be a great time for travel and to be home by Christmas. God's time is exciting so let's see where He takes us. God Bless.

Today we need to: Send our last papers (Home study, I-797) to Tallahassee and then the Houston Chinese Consulate...yeah more courier fees:( Send off our grants also and pray we receive some help. Sign Hope up for ballet/tap/acro Sign the boys up for baseball It will be quite a year since I too need to continue planning our school year and buy some last minute books and supplies. This will probably be one of the best years of our lives-I can feel it-Praise God!
