This week is "Kanaval" - or Carnival. Fat Tuesday, drinking and partying ... all that stuff. We'll be steering clear of that scene and work on getting ready for Dad to come (he is building us a big honkin, long table - so we need to get the lumber and supplies together) and Thursday we hope to finish our home-study and team shop for the next team of 12 coming the 27th for the Lifeline Convention.
I am behind on thank-you notes right now. It is just occurring to us HOW MUCH stuff the team from Michigan left for us again. Thank you guys so much for all the formula and diapers and billions of fruit snacks and crackers. THANK YOU- Nate, Brenda, Nik, Dennis, Kimberly, Jeremy, Jason, Carl, Tess, Gerry, Shelly, Mary and Ken.
Thanks to the Meadow's, Hewitt's, Brown's, Glaser's, Vogeler's, Egger's, Castle's & Gardner's of the greater Rochelle, IL area -- we ate Illinois chicken again Friday night. What could be better? The kids have enjoyed all the fun things you brought for them. Phoebe is loving that marvelous contraption you bought for her too. Thanks for sending Kris loaded with so many fun things!
All of these gifts are wonderful, not only are they such a blessing to us but they help offset grocery costs, which in turn frees up money that we're needing at this very moment for our adoption of Phoebe.
God's timing is impeccable.
