6th 4th

(Don't forget that we're still selling necklaces - go here for information!)

Another week has passed - where is the time going? I'm so happy that the weeks are passing quickly - it means it's one week closer to when we get to see you again! It also means one less week to get ready for you!

The last news we heard is still no news. I tried to think of a creative way to skip our third trip and just take 3 total, but our facilitator said it's just not possible. We are hopeful to hear something this week. We're desperate to get back to you!

We finally figured out what you are going to sleep on when you come home. It seems like it should have been an easy thing, but it was hard! One day this week Papa is going to put your bed together and then we can work on the finishing details of your room. Mama has already made you a quilt for your bed. Now I just need to make a couple of pillows, your curtains and a pillow sham for your bed. And hang the artwork and print your name letters and hang those up.

On July 3, we went to Annie's house for our annual July 4th trip. This is the 6th year we've done this - or the 6th 4th. Every year the cast of characters changes slightly, but it's always a good time. And the best part! We just have to bring food so it's free!

Here are all the pictures! Next year you get to come! Yay! And Taylor will be very happy she doesn't have to play with "all those babies!" And Olive gets to be there next year too if Olive's Mama braves the heat with a wee one :) And hopefully we'll be on our way to #7 too!
