Keeping Busy

Well......we have been keeping busy while we patiently impatiently wait for a call from our Adoption Agency. Even though the Weatherman is calling for a high in the 90"s this upcoming weekend, the calendar still says that Fall is approaching. I have to admit, i have enjoyed seeing the crisp mornings, but it has been nice knowing that it would soon warm up throughout the day. Not really looking forward to Fall...I know for some, this is their favorite time of year. Pumpkin carving, hot apple cider, hayrides, football games....not so much, for me. I lost my Mother during the month of October (almost 12 years ago), and ever since then, i have just dreaded Fall. I really don't like anything about it. Call me silly, but I am really hoping that this year, October will bring us our newest blessing. I would love to replace the sadness that always comes with October with  joy and excitement of our future. We shall see...

So....what have we been up to??
Trips to the Zoo...dinner at our Annual Greek Festival..OPA!!!,

Muffins 4 Mom's at Alex's Preschool, swimming, fishing and just enjoying our time together as a family.

We have a Big Birthday coming up next week.....Alex turns 4! we will celebrate at school with his little buddies and also at home, as a family!

we also have another holiday coming up that we will be celebrating, for the first time, this year. On Sept 30, marks the Mid Autumn Festival in China. This day is their equivalent to our Thanksgiving, here in America. On this day, people in China celebrate all that they have with family and close friends. It is a tradition to eat and gather outdoors and to gaze up at the moon, giving all of their thanks to the heavens. And so, we plan to celebrate on that day, as well. It only felt this is the country where our future daughter waits for us. She is sleeping under the same moon and stars..and so on that night of celebration..we will add an extra prayer...just for her!
