Manda and Bossy

We suspected from day one that this bossy chick was a rooster, but his teen-age, strangled crow has confirmed it! Although we told the kids that any rooster would make a nice chicken fricasse, well....who has the heart (or doesn't as the case may be)....NOT I!

Back to blogville

Hello, friends and family! If you are still out there, I will be posting pictures and Glover craziness soon! There is much to tell! The months have spun by, as we have been blessed with extended visits with family and friends, homeschooling and exciting (if consuming) photographic developments. A photography website will be appearing soon, a logo/brand has been in the works as well as lots of new wedding images. You can check out some of Dan and Arielle's wedding images at my photography blog, linked to the right.

Last, but by no means least, we have a court date of March 25th for our baby's adoption in Ethiopia. We will not be physically present for that date, but will receive our travel dates as soon as the hearing is finished. We are told that we can expect to travel four weeks after that court date. So, it looks like I (yes, little ol' me, all by my lonesome, EEK! Actually, I am feeling mostly excited about it now) will be going to Ethiopia at the end of April to bring our baby home! We'll keep you updated on the dates so you can be praying for safe travels! If any of you know my prior travel stories (I really should write a book, or an article at least), anyway, if you know then you KNOW, I NEED the prayer!:) Oh, and our baby girl (still undecided between Lucia --Lulu for short or Josephine --Josie or Jo for short) is now rolling onto her belly, laughing out loud and reaching for things to put in her mouth. She is four months old and it is KILLING me that we have to wait another two months to bring her home! On the other hand, we are working hard to get a LOT of schooling done, to get a lot of our business stuff taken care of, and some other issues regarding Ayisha's seizures settled (more on that later).

I've decided that in order to get back into the swing of things with blogging, I am going to start back up by posting an image a day. In true procrastinator fashion, I am not starting that quite today, but soon! Hah! :)

Lots of love to you all (all two of you that follow this blog by now)! Hi Mom and Mom #2 (Steve's mom)!

Sweet dreams!
