Pressley and his best friend Seth. They have been the best of buds for 5 of their almost 7 years!
Rion, Sophie and Pressley had a lemonade stand and donated the money they made to an orphanage in China. I was very proud of them. They made $63!
This weekend Greg and I went to Daufuskie Island- an island that is between Hilton Head and Savannah. You board a ferry to get there and that is the only way on and off the island. It is very secluded and quiet! We toured the island by golf cart, and saw lots of wildlife- alligators, deer, horseshoe crabs... It was so much fun and Oh, so relaxing! My parents kept our children and so we knew that they were having a great time too (the children that is!) I thought I took more pictures, but I forget to pull out the camera when it's just us! Last week was VERY busy- my best friend moved away last summer and her boys and my boys were very good friends, so the boys spent last week with us. We went to the water park, saw Indiana Jones, ate out alot(it was much easier keeping 4 boys out of the house rather than in!), and went to the pool every day.
I am of course praying that this week brings our LOA. Please pray for us that we will be traveling for Cate soon. It's funny how I thought of so many things like... By then we will have LOA, or when we go there, we will be home with Cate, or getting ready to travel... And already many things have passed with no news still. Today marks day 85. I never thought it would take so long. But I set myself up for this. I really forget to let God have control of our adoption. I want Him to have it, and yet I want Cate right now. This has been so hard, and I am not a very good student. I read this at the bottom of an email this past week, and I really needed to hear it-
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. I love that.
