Wonderful Weekend

Perry, Aaron and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend in NC. We left Friday after I got off work. A little later than originally planned. Aaron slept all the way down. We had a quiet relaxing day with Perry's family. Sunday morning we went to mass and then went to the farm to see the grandparents. After Perry got the fried food that makes him happy we returned home where Perry's mom feed us well again. We did do something other than eat but not much. Perry and I enjoyed the OSU vs Penn State game on TV. Monday we returned home but not before we had Perry's grandma's pancakes....which I have not mastered. I am sorry to say that my camera was giving me trouble. Anyone who has got pics please send.

Young Adult Retreat

Friday before the retreat we drove up early to make the trip easier for mom. He slept the first 2 and 1/2 hours. So we spent the day at the Columbus Zoo. It was a great zoo. Last time Aaron was at the zoo he really wasn't all that interested in the animals. This time he was totally fascinated. He especially liked anything that was in the water.
We then went to the retreat. We had a combination of married and unmarried. We talked about relationships - with others, with spouses/romantic and those in authority. We took time out and went to a pumpkin farm that included a hay barn and hayride.

All in all an enjoyable weekend.

This is Andrew...Aaron's big brother. We got our official referral so we decided to post some pictures. This Andrew with his foster Mom.

We are told that he loves to play with cars.

Isn't he cute. Pray for us we go through the process. Pray for Andrew and Aaron as they adjust.

If Only...

The night before last we had an incredibly cute moment with Aaron and we didn't have a camera. So I will try to tell you about it. It began with Perry mowing the lawn. To which Aaron wants to watch and participate. We are mean parents we won't let him ride with Daddy. Aaron began our fun by pulling a few weeds. I then thought we have had our hose out for the summer and it needs put in the shed. Maybe he will walk with me while we put it in the shed. He did one better as I pulled the hose to the shed he held on the back and pushed. It was a cute picture but I was pulling and Perry was mowing. Maybe next time. I also had Aaron in the wheelbarrow as I collected grass also cute. The end result was a need for a bath.

Adoption Update

We are learning that each adoption process is different and has its own quirks. I must say that the second time around feels much easier. Today we finish up the last of the paperwork and we begin the waiting process. We have had our home study. We have filled out our forms and gotten reference letters. To those that wrote them thanks. We have collected pictures - this is new to us. Fun and weird at the same time. South Korea wants pictures of you doing things that you enjoy. So we took pictures of Perry throwing the football, a picture from a baseball game, and me at quilting class, etc... We both passed our physicals. These were much more in depth than the last. Guatemala just wanted to know you were alive and not going to die soon. Well that is it for now.
