It's been awhile since we've posted a blog, simply because we've been super busy!! We are making headway on our adoption process - we are immigration bound!! Now we are just waiting on communication to get our fingerprints done again (Yes, again!! They are very thorough!!). So please continue to pray for our adoption journey, specifically that it will be a smooth process from this point on.
Another update for everyone is that I am so proud of our son and daughter!! They have worked hard this summer while working on a Kindergarten "refresher" course so that our son will be ready to go for 1st grade this fall! Well, today we finished our last lesson of the Kindergarten "refresher" material and of course we had to do the "Happy Dance"!! Our son has improved by leaps and bounds this summer, I'm so amazed!! I'm really looking forward to see how he progresses this fall.
Yet, another blessing is we received our curriculum in the mail yesterday. That's big excitement for us, because we rarely get packages sent here. Well, we decided that we should wait for Daddy to come home so he could partake in the fun too! We got a little extra "fun" learning tool for the kids and Mommy and Daddy too! We got a globe, it's so cool! We immediately had to show the kids where China is located and of course our friends in Ethiopia. We had a lot of fun last night, they pointed to each country and asked the name.
Taking on the decision as a family to homeschool has brought us much peace and honor. It's truly a blessing to teach our own children and protect them from this crazy world. It's even more comforting to know that both kids truly are excited about it too! Enjoy the pictures!! They are of "Box Day", Globe - Pointing to China, Children posing at the completion of their last day of Kindergarten "Refresher".
Hug your little ones and have a blessed day!!
