Well we lost last night. It was not very pretty either! But that's OK it's over and there is no need to ever talk about it again! I have just one more job before baseball is completely done and that is our end of the year party. I have no clue what to do yet but I am sure I will figure it out.
In the midst of all the chaos of the last week I somehow managed to paint my 5 year olds room. He has wanted a green room for the last year and I finally gave in. His whole room is not green only the bottom half of the walls. I normally would not do something like this but I felt it was very important to do this for him as everything will soon be pretty crazy when we bring Alyssa home and I don't want him to feel left out!

Aidan's Room!

Another Week Gone

I have nothing new to share about Alyssa's papers we are still waiting. I am very thankful that baseball season is almost over. It will be nice to be able to relax and not have to wonder where we play tonight! Between both of my boys I was going 4 days a week to ball games and if it was a home game I had to have the concession stand ready and open for business. I can say that we did very well on the concession stand! I love baseball but it just seemed this year nothing went right. Every time I turned around something was wrong.
My oldest is playing in the end of the year tournament starting tonight and if we win tomorrow night. I hope we win but if we don't that's OK too!
We have two more weeks to wait on papers for Alyssa before I can start calling and bugging people. Hopefully I won't have to do that I don't like to do that kind of stuff.
I also want to say THANK YOU to ALL the adults that went to Falls Creek!!! If it were not for you our kids would miss the wonderful experience that they get there. It is wonderful to know that we have people like you in our church that love and care for our children as much as us parents do. THANK YOU again!!!!!

Today we received legal papers on Alyssa! That means we file papers with CIS to make her our relative! Once those papers are approved they will get her Visa and Passport! Then we travel!!! It is all going a lot faster then I expected. I do know that they said it could take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks for CIS to approve our request to make her our relative. That is OK though, that gives me more time to get things ready here. Which I have not even started. Baseball will be over before July 4 so I will have more time then to move furniture and rearrange everything for Alyssa's room. Thank You to all of you for all your prayers!!!

I got to send me first care package to Alyssa yesterday!!!! I am so excited!! And as usual that is all I have to update you on. Hopefully we will get some news on Alyssa's papers soon!

I have been waiting all day to be allowed to post this! On Friday June,29th we received a file of a beautiful little girl. We responded to the e-mail but it was to late in the day so we had to wait until Monday June, 1st to get her entire file. Once we looked at her file did a little research took it to the doctor we accepted her!!!! Yes we have a little girl her name will be Alyssa Marie, she will be 6 months old on Friday, and is BEAUTIFUL!!! Now there is a 3-6 month wait before we can go get her and bring her home. As we understand the wait depends upon how fast they get her passport and visa. We are so excited!!!!!
