Summer Vacation

Even though it is summer vacation, a few of us are always up early.  
We have been going to the club house pool a few times a week.  Today I gave the kids our underwater camera.  I think they took some great photos!

Lexi is growing up so fast. 
Things are moving along with Natalie's adoption.  We have our Article 5 interview next week. 
One step closer to bringing our little girl home.


  1. Those are awesome underwater pictures! Anna's in particular, but they are all great.

    I can't wait until you have Natalie home with you. Such a sweetie and she is going to thrive with all the love in your home.

  2. What GREAT photos! The kids did a super job. Little Natalie is just so precious........she will be a changed girl in no time.....she will thrive :-)

  3. Hi ! I am sure your new daughter will be wonderful in your home. I am getting excited about her progress once she hits the US. Pat

  4. Make sure to keep your dogs indoors in a safe area tonight, 4th of july is a scary time for dogs!!

  5. Hi,

    I just stumbled upon your blog. (It seems like if you look at enough blogs you forget which one you started at to end up where you landed.)

    Out of curiosity, do you have a post about your decision to adopt, how you adopted, how you afford the process, how difficult it was to adopt, etc?

    I ask because adoption is something really weighing on us right now, but we are young (27) and the process seems daunting. I am desperate to find stories like yours.
