Still No News

Well, we're still "planning" on traveling, but not officially yet. We're looking at flights..... ughhhh.... August is the MOST expensive time to travel to Ethiopia and all the flights on Ethiopian Air are booked because the Ethiopian Millenium celebration starts in September!!!! Oh well..... anything to go and get Gracie! So, in the meantime, I'm finishing up her room and enjoying the sunny weather with my family. We just went over to the beach on our boat tonight for dinner with some friends. I love summer in the Pacific Northwest!

Here's a few pictures of her "work in progress" room.....

And from the beach......

Traveling...... Maybe?!?!?

We just got "tentative" travel dates!!!! I guess we have an Embassy appointment on Aug. 20th, but we still haven't "officially" cleared through courts yet! ughh...... We should have word by the end of the week, but we were told to start looking for flights, packing, etc........ Exciting and stressful times!!!!!

Impatiently Waiting

There's only a week and half left before the courts close and we still don't have a travel date!!! We were told that we did have a court date scheduled, so I'm praying that it either already happened or that it's this week!!! I'm trying to be optimistic that news of our travel dates will come this week. Staring at the phone won't make the call come any sooner, will it? Grace's room is almost done (I just have one more flower to paint), clothes are getting washed, and the closet organizers will be done soon!! All we need is our sweet little one home!
