While We Wait ....




While we wait to bring our precious Maggie home we want to make sure we don't miss the awesome blessings of each day. I want to wait well and show how awesome Jesus is in my life. The fact is He can care for all my children whether home, in China or Ethiopia much better than I ever could ....

A Father/Son friend of ours treated Scott & Jeremiah to a weekend in Chicago at ESPN Zone and WNBA game. They had a blast !!! Planes, Trains and Cabs ... Jeremiah couldn't stop talking about it.

So while the boys were away, I got a sitter and spent some much needed time with my friends. We got pedis, ate ice cream and did some retail therapy (pictures included).

Carlee and I ate at Red Lobster ... We laugh and cried together. I was a great time of catch up for us. Thank You Lord we were in a corner both !!!

I feel refreshed and ready for Elijah's first day of kindergarten (tomorrow)... If I hadn't mentioned it yet "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young is a fabulous way to start the day ... Love You All !!!

I have one starting Kindergarten tomorrow, too, as well as, my oldest starting 6th grade. Between that and then just all of them leaving tomorrow for the day I will definitely need just a little more time with Jesus in the morning or I'll be a mop when I drop everyone off. It's funny, even homeschooling and only having them gone two days a week, it just seems to go way too fast, doesn't it! May we both be filled with His peace tomorrow and may our "babies" do well! :)

Cute clothes! Glad you were able to have some friend time. That's a much needed break sometimes, isn't it? Praying that you'll be bringing Maggie home SOON!!!

Nothing like retail threrapy with your friends. So glad you got a chance to get away and shop for your precious daughter. There is nothing like a good cry and/or laughter with a friend. It does a heart good!
The clothes are great. I can't wait to see the cute outfits on Miss Maggie.

Best of luck to Elijah today...is he morning or afternoon kindergarten? well at least for a couple of hours a day, you and Emily get to have "mommy and me time" ... just the girls; hope you post some pics of him going to kindergarten.

I have no idea why I've been thinking of this lately.....but I was wondering if you guys still have your dog; i come up with the most outlandish things sometimes ... LOL

Cutie pie clothes...and I love the dresser!! Glad you got some time with your friends. Hope it's not too much longer before you get Maggie home.

Shopping for little girls clothes is so fun! That's awesome that you got some mommy time. It's nice to pamper ourselves every once in awhile.

Kindergarten - wow! You probably already do, but cherish this age. I've got one starting high school and one starting middle school (the other two are still in elementary) but time flies! One minute they are snuggled up to you saying "I love you Mommy" and the next they are say "Moooom, stop! You're embarrassing me!" I'd love to have mine little again! :)

Can you send that sitter our way? We need some nights out. Seems like I am stuck in this house. Check your email for notes from a crazed blogger ;) Anyway, looks like you made a good haul there. I think I see some Target items.

I love girl time, makes me really want to come spend some time with Corinne:) Hope to connect sometime but will definitely follow your journey in the meantime.
