Wow. What to say? To blog? I have tried, but no ideas seem to be forthcoming! I’m afraid my mind has already left the building and my TA is weeks away! Hopefully I will be able to complete everything that needs to be done between now and travel time without making any fatal errors!
I have managed to get everything organized and sent off to Joe and Jen (who are putting together our travel site, YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!) and I’m am so looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Jen has recently added an awesome new design, so it’s gonna be good… no doubt. BTW, we did finally agree on a name for the site by majority rules, and interestingly Isabelle cast the deciding vote. But I’m going to wait to make the announcement when the site goes live 🙂 The winner has been notified and I was glad to hear her little ones were already mesmerized by listening to Dora speak Mandarin.
I also updated Shepherd’s quilt blog, last week was a great week for fabric! Thanks SO much to everyone who has contributed so far! I’ve looked at my other kids’ quilts and realized I really don’t need 100 squares. If I can get 50 fabrics, I’ll be thrilled, so I really just need about 25 more. So if you want to participate, let me know, I’d LOVE to have you spare a square 🙂
I have also started thinking about packing… anyone have a good list they want to share? I have a few, but I love to get ideas from other adoptive parents who have made the trip. Anything you wouldn’t travel without?
And last but not least, check these new pics… I mean geesh! Cutie patootie or what?! Okay, they’re not exactly new, I got them shortly after the last set of pics and wanted to wait a bit (spreadin’ out the love, ya know?) to post them. Now seemed to be a perfect time to share, on the heels of that sweet LOA. I mean, look at that face? It looks like he’s actually trying to smile for the camera, so sweet! With just a month or so between now and the time he’ll be in my arms, how in the world can I think about anything else?
