Two big letters.........TA!
Can you believe it? God has done it again!
Our agency said to expect TA in 2-3 weeks. That was almost 2 weeks ago. Yep. He's in the details.
Well, I was sitting in the kitchen munching on an apple and texting my sister and hubby when I noticed I had some new emails. I could see that one of them was from our China coordinator, and when I saw the words "Congratulations. BAAS received your TA this afternoon," I almost choked on said apple. For real!
So now the planning is kicking into high gear and the packing must commence. Unfortunately the new camera/laptop backpack I purchased last week was waaaay too big on my petite frame. So I need to ship it back and try again. Ugh. I really want to wear a backpack to tote around all my gear so that I can wear Havi in the carrier without having to keep a bag from falling off my shoulder. So I really need to pick something quick. We are hoping to leave mid June after Madeline's dance recital.
Anyway, enough rambling. Now for some photos. Shame on me; I didn't get either hubby to snap a photo of me with my sister the weekend of our birthday/Mother's Day. Pathetic, I know. I did, however, follow all the littles around as they walked over to the playground and played wildly one night after dinner.
I love watching Caleb take Josh by the hand. It's a foreshadowing of the weeks to come.
These last two photos crack me up. I wanted a shot of all the kids together. So Caleb corralled Josh. Madeline and Leah jumped into the shot. But I couldn't convince Madeline to put her knees down so she didn't flash the world.
She couldn't take it and up and left. And the other three came crashing down. Not quite the end result I had in mind! lol
Anyway, I'll be sure to keep you all posted on our travel plans when we nail them down. I plan on blogging when we travel. So be sure to check in on us and leave some comment love. It'll mean a lot to us while we're half way around the globe.
