Sorry to all my bloggy friends that I haven't posted in a while. Things seemed to settle down for a while and just when I was thinking things were getting under control, God throws a curve ball. It has been a rough couple of weeks and especially today! One trip to the doctor office, one trip to the hospital and two trips to the pharmacy. And then 2 more trips this week to dr. appts. So it has been and will be a busy week and it's only Monday!!! Yikes!
Well yesterday, I attempted some photos of the kids. Boy, it's hard to get 4 kids to look at you and it's even harder to get them to smile at the same time. I only edited one photo so far. I will try and get more up later. But this was one of the better shots with all the kids at least looking at the camera. The boys had their Ethiopian hats on that we got them on our trip and then Mekie had a traditional Ethiopian dress on.
So what else is going on you ask, other than dr. appts.? Well 2 weekends ago we went to the Johnny Appleseed Festival. The kids rode the old traditional rides and they had so much fun. Got yummy food and enjoyed the fall air. Sorry no photos! We have also been working out in our wooded area in our backyard, cleaning up some of the brush and cutting down some rotten trees. Then Derek has also started to build a clubhouse for the kids. It is 7 feet high and goes around a tree. He has the floor part built but thinking we will wait till spring to finish it. The kids love climbing up there. And the newest thing the kids love doing is collecting acorns. They have 3 huge buckets full! (By the way, how do you get rid of the acorns without them noticing???) We have also started meeting some other friends that have adopted from Ethiopia. I met a friend last week that has a boy Ash's age and will go to school with him and then she has a girl that is the same age as Mekie and will be going to school with her! Isn't that exciting!!!
Well I need to get some rest. I was up last night because Ash was up wheezing, coughing, and his teeth hurt so bad. My poor little man. So the kids are all resting except Garrett, he thinks he too old to nap!! So keep us in your prayers as we try and get all these kids healthy and their teeth fixed.
