African Family Fellowship… {and a recital}

Sooo…our weekend was crazy {will share the crazy later this week}…but seasoned with sweetness to. I’ll share the sweetness today and the crazy in a few days after I get the rest of my thoughts together. For now…the sweetness!!!

We celebrated our princess in so many ways this weekend…and one was through her love of dance. She’s 5 years old–and this was her THIRD year of dance. She did a beautiful job on Saturday–and I love that when I asked her if she was nervous in front of ALL those people she responded, “Nope. I had fun!” Here is the princess with momma before the big performance!

We had so much fun getting ready for the performance–and she’s so excited about her 4th year of ballet ahead. She has requested to add violin to her list of performing arts—doesn’t she look like ballerina and violinist material:)

And then on Sunday…we had our African Adoption Fellowship!

Here’s cool-and-the gang…

And of course ITY was on the go…

The Bubars hanging with some Ethiopia families in waiting…the Chalks and the Campbells…

Rico Suave representing with the Browns (waiting for their TWINS in Uganda!)

Sweet little Mark with momma Sara Cain whose been home from Uganda for less than a month!

Sweet friends showing some sisterly love…and Isaac is EATING it up!

The boys just hangin’ out…

THEN…it was jammie time and time to prepare for a week ahead. Who votes it’s time for our 2 1/2 year old to have his FIRST haircut?!

Can you BELIEVE he has NOT had a haircut YET?!

Hope ya’ll have a good day…and can’t wait to show y’all my weekend project {How to frame like professionals on the cheap} and then later this week–I have to share my heart on STANDING FIRM IN YOUR CALLING. It’s a post that has been brewing for 6 weeks now–just have to share in a few days!!!!!!!!!

Much love to y’all from the South!

AWWW! Love these precious pics! We had dance recital weekend too…so precious! Can’t wait to read your post on “standing firm in your calling” because that is exactly what we feel like God is telling us to do. He continues to tell us to “stay the course”…our daughter is in Ethiopia.

I vote no on the haircut. Frankie is too cute. Looking forward to the next two posts. Thanks for sharing.
