Ok, this is getting harder and harder every day. It has been about 5 weeks since we have seen our boys. 2 1/2 weeks since we passed court.
I had emailed Sue earlier in the week and she is in Ethiopia this week. She emailed me back, I think it was Tuesday and said she was with OUR boys, taking them to their Embassy medical appointment. She was hoping that we would be submitted to embassy either May 5 or 12. I emailed her yesterday to see if we were submitted and she said that yesterday was a holiday in Ethiopia, but she was hoping that we would be submitted today. So, I am emailing her to make sure. Oh, I so hope that we get the call next week that we can pick up our boys. It is so hard to wait. I miss them so much and they are so young and at their ages, they change weekly and I am missing that. UGH!
I have the boys stuff packed. We are trying to get the house ready. We have a small house and it will require some moving around. I have been motivate, but after wishing for the call to travel this week, I guess today has been a little depressing. We are planning on putting the boys' dresser and Natalie and Hannah's dresser in the laundry room. Well, the walls were still a blah cream color from when we moved in and filthy. So, while we were at co op this morning, Aaron painted it a pretty lavender color I picked out yesterday. I think it looks good maybe we can get all of the house shifted by next week.
We just moved in our home schooling studies from the Middle Ages to Renaissance. And it just so happens that there is a Renaissance Festival starting tomorrow about 2 hours from here. As a surprise to the girls and a field trip, we are planning on leaving early in the morning for that. There is a special going on this weekend and the kids will get in free. I hope it is fun.
If you are praying for us, please pray we get the call to go pick up our kids soon! My boys are 8000 miles away and they need to come home!
