We took a vacation to Ft. Myers Beach, FL and then on a 3 day cruise to the Bahamas. The weather was sketchy a lot of the time because it was windy and in the 60's but we still had a great time. We played on the beach, collected seashells, ate, swam and went to the park in Florida. On the cruise, we played mini-golf, went to Nassau on the beach, and just relaxed. Lilia is getting to be quite the swimmer. I think we will be spending the summer in the deep end this year!
As far as the adoption, we are waiting for our fingerprint appointment. Hopefully within the next week we will get it and then after we get our fingerprints, we will be waiting for the ever-so-important I171-H form to complete our paperwork. Then the paperwork is off to Ethiopia! We can't wait for the day to just be waiting. We know the Lord has a plan and a child already picked out. We just gotta trust and be patient. Whoever said "Patience is a virtue" wasn't quite right in the head!!
Gymnastics is going great and school is also going great. We are looking forward to spring. We are in the process of planning our 10 year anniversary vacation to Maui, Hawaii. YES, Lil is coming along. Of course!! Then hopefully the next plane we get on will be to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to bring home our buddy. We will keep you posted!!
