What's new with us????

Things are heating up here this summer, and we are super much so that we are finding it difficult to get things done for our homestudy. With Aaron farming in full throttle, he is rarely home and awake long enough for us to discuss what the next move is, and I am pulling my hair out trying to keep up with the house by myself, take care of the girls, focus on our adoption, and balance fun stuff for the girls this summer. It's a short season that we have to get through, and then we will be able to breathe again :) We haven't felt any reason to stop our process, so we are still moving foward little by little. Once we get into September, we will have more time to focus on everything. So on my list of to do's for the homestudy is...physical for both Aaron and myself, physicals and updated shot records for the girls, updated shots for Lucy, our dog, insurance, and writing individual autobiographies,and mounds of paperwork :) We hope to get all this finished up by the beginning of July. The girls have their appointments in place and I will be visiting the vet that comes to the Tractor Supply the first Saturday of every month to get Lucy's shots for half the price....gotta love that! In the meantime, enjoy some photos from our crazy summer thus far! They range from farming pics, to fun in the sun, to potty training!

The following pics of the farm and the family were taken by Jen Price..take a look at hers and her husband's ministry by clicking on the 10,000 homes button on my sidebar!Their vision is to build 10,000 homes for aids orphans in South Africa. They're home now on sabbatical....check it out!

Loaded truck to take to the farmer's market at the crack of dawn or sooner ;)

Alyssa seems to have gotten herself in a pickle .....hahahaha!

Splash park fun!

New Hope's "Epic" event definitely lived up to it's name...SO FUN!

And our little potty trainer...she really just only likes to "act" as though she is going! She has 1 lone sticker on her potty chart!
