We spent our weekend with my parents, Rich’s mom and PACKING! So much fun!!! We kicked it at the pool…and we spent Saturday afternoon with the Vogeltantz family!!!
We had SOOO much fun talking Ethiopia…drilling them about the “what to take”…”what it’s like”…and it was just so much fun to spend time with this sweet family! Thank you Emily for coming by and spending the day with our family. We are so thankful for your family…and can’t WAIT to start that Africa adoption group we’ve been talking about. So fun for your E and my I to be friends!!!
And on Sunday…AFTER we spent the day swimming in a lake…celebrating with our Sunday school many dads over BBQ and riding horses…it was all about daddy once we got home all over again. So we did what Rich wanted to do…HOME-MADE ICE CREAM! YUM~
We played boys against girls in kick ball…we seriously need a few more players;). The girls team is going to be SO not fair in a few years! And Gigi came up and brought us a dinner picnic! What a treat!
And then Laney and I pulled out the sewing machine and I whipped out a cute little dress for her. We recently bought some cute ones from Julie at Flitterbugs and Laney loved the ruffle collar so I eye-balled it and just made this without a pattern…so I hope it fits;).
When I wake up…it’ll be 4 more days until we leave…AND it will be Richard and my SEVENTH wedding anniversary! Yep…in 7 years we’ve…MULTIPLIED by 4 children…2 moves…helped start a ministry in Africa…2 job changes for Rich…2 job changes for me and then chosing to stay-at-home…SO much adventure—and I’d say YES all over again!
