We are getting closer!

Just returned from a few relaxing days at the beach.  Pictures to follow soon. 

Heading to our State Department and then on to the US Department of State and the Ethiopian Embassy this week for our final Authentications!  Hoping to stop at a little Ethiopian Restaurant to celebrate on the way home. 

Our upcoming week in a few words:  (B.U.S.Y.)

*Visit and dinner with out-of-town friends
*Sports Physicals for both boys
*Visit Extreme Home Makeover Site (Our builder and friend is spearheading the construction of a new EXTREME home for a local family – we received VIP passes etc. to visit the site, so I guess we’ll go see Ty Pennington and the crew one evening this week)!
*Baseball Game (yep, we’re still playing, and made it to playoffs too)
*40th Birthday Party
*Help Friends Move
*Graduation Party   

PLUS all of our notarization and authentication appointments. . . . Hope I’m not forgetting anything!      I’m ready for vacation again!

Only 50 days until our case becomes active again… but who’s counting J 

 Oh, and word came out of Ethiopia that they are lifting the 5 case per day limit on reviewing adoption cases!  Yay!
