Pathetic Excuse For A Blog

Wow I've really been slacking off here. Between the rush to finish up school with the kids and finish the kitchen remodel I've severely neglected this blog. I have to admit I've been a bit at a loss for words as well. When I don't have something constructive or inspired to write I'd rather just skip it all together. Oh, and there may have been some Facebook-ing in there somewhere too. (wink, wink)

I do have some news though. Jonas is walking! And climbing, and falling and bruising and scaring his mom half out of her mind. You have to love this age. Curiosity rules the day even if coordination doesn't and while his life may hang in the balance multiple times a day our oblivious boy couldn't be more proud of himself and his new found freedom.

I will be writing an update on our attachment when our 6 month post placement report comes around. We have also gotten our court date for Jonas' readoption. It's scheduled for the morning of Sept 30th. I couldn't believe how far out it was scheduled but what can we do? Nothing but show up on our assigned day. :-)

Talks have resumed about the timing of our next adoption. We *hope* to get the ball rolling in January. I express that intention with some hesitation because our financial situation will most likely not be in order by then. Dustin and I do have the added expense of private school tuition next year which, I'll be honest, scares me! We had to completely redo our homestudy for the readoption and we wouldn't even be able to use it for the second one. In light of the fact that this year is our 10th wedding anniversary and we planned to take a trip and Dustin plans to return to Ethiopia for more missions work in the fall (can you hear the cha-ching with every word I type?) money is flying out of our hands faster than we can say "ouch!". So, if funds aren't available to make a January application date possible I know we can rest assured that it will happen in God's timing.

That's it for now,

-Your long lost blogger.

Jen, we too have started discussion of our next adoption, though it will be much further out unless God intervenes financially, next time we may even adopt 2!
