Watch Our Progress

easy fundraisers

Monday, April 9, 2012

It's been a couple weeks now since we received our referral and since then all I can see is her face!  Gosh, it's so much more daunting when we know exactly who our daughter is and knowing as each week passes that she's getting older in an ORPHANAGE while we sit here and wait for the red tape. You have to have patience to go through this journey!!

Currently, our paperwork is being translated into Amharic (their native language).  We are waiting on a few other things on their end before our case will be submitted to court.  Once our paperwork is submitted it should take about 30 days before we travel to Ethiopia for our court appearance.

To pass the time we've been trying to keep ourselves busy, therefore we decided to get out of town this past Easter weekend.  Friends of ours graciously allowed us to hang at their cabin this weekend near Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky.

It's so quiet and peaceful and we didn't do a whole lot while we were there beside lounge around and watch movies.

The first night we were there we decided to make a fire and roast some hotdogs.  Micah was mostly interested in beating the tree's with sticks, but thats to be expected I guess!

We decided to eat dinner out on the screened porch that overlooks the back treescape.  Through the trees is a view of Lake Nolin.  After dinner we ended up walking down to the lake. 

The next morning we decided to take advantage of the local attraction which was the caves.  We pretended that Batman called Tommy and invited Micah to come see his Bat Cave. It was pretty hilarious!  The caves were discovered hundreds of years ago by explorerers and they were pretty amazing.

We headed back home on Sunday afternoon and apparently couldn't get enough because our Easter dinner consisted of another dose of roasted hot dogs and smores over a fire!  We plan to try to make it a weekly occurance now that the weather is nice.  We hope everyone had a great Easter as well!
