Its hard to believe that we officially accepted the referrals of each of our boys six months ago today. I never would have imagined on January 18th that six months would pass and we would still be no closer to these little men being a part of our family! But, I also could have never imagined the incredible ways God would purify my heart and strengthen my faith through such an arduous wait and thus, I put my hand over my mouth.
I also thank God for a beautiful day today…we have had an amazing cool front come through (have I ever worn long-sleeves and jeans in July?!?!) so Kevin and I decided to take advantage of the awesome weather. We took Molly Kate and the dogs (we are dog-sitting my sister’s lab, which happens to be Annie’s sister) to a park on the river front for a picnic. What a delight to enjoy a playground, the river and a yummy lunch! After lunch, we headed across the river to a neat little candy store, Schimpf’s Confectionery. Kevin was happy to see that all fountain drinks were fifty percent off, so our sweet stop actually ended up being pretty cheap! I love Saturdays with my family…precious mercies of God!
