School days

Well, not much is new here on the adoption front......still waiting for the coveted I171-H.....hopefully it will come in the next couple of weeks so we can get this paperwork out of here! Can't wait!

School started this week, which means back to routine. I always fight it a little bit and feel sad to give up my "free" time, but I also love getting back on a schedule. I'm so much more productive somehow! This is a week of adjustment as we train our bodies to get up early (the saddest part of all) and get accustomed to our new schedule. Our kids are in 7th, 5th and 4th grades this year - I can hardly believe it!

We love the Christian school that I teach at and our kids go to, so we feel blessed to be there again this year. It's been great to get back and see all of our friends as we've missed them over the summer.

Thank you for keeping our adoption in your prayers. This week a family who had received their referral for a baby girl in Ethiopia had an awful thing happen.....their baby died of pneumonia before they could go get her. We feel heart broken for them. What a difficult thing. Please keep the Joner family in your prayers, too.

Have a great week!
