Sweet Girls
I have a good bit to catch up on. Friday we met some of our friends at Chuck E Cheese. Susan and I wanted to get together so Luci and Brooke could play. Those two really love each other. I wish Susan did not leave so far from me. She is about two hours from me, so that is not to bad. I might have to surprise her one day and just go spend a couple of days with them. :) Teasing Susan.
Anyway we thought we would pass the word to some more moms that have children from China. I never dreamed we would have a huge turn out. I volunteered to make cupcakes. I started getting all these emails on people coming and I started to panic. I was thinking what have I got myself into. Susan was so sweet, and helped me make some cupcakes. We had plenty. I said maybe God multiplied them for us.
I got to meet some new faces. Susan and I think the next time it would be better to go somewhere that the moms can talk. We did not feel free to just let our little ones run around so we did not get to talk much to the other moms.

Chris and Kelly came over Saturday night. I think it really helped them with some of the things they faced last week. I finally had Kel laughing and she was even singing for us as we played games. The children had fun in the play room. I am so thankful God blessed us with that play room. It is so nice when kids come over.

Today we had to take Courtney to Birmingham to the Doctor. Her eyes have improved a good bit, so that was a nice feeling. She has to get new glasses, but it will be August before the insurance will pay for them. Brooke and Courtney fussed the whole way home from Birmingham. Kevin and I was ready to get out of the car. I tried to excuse the illness because they both had to get up around 5:45. They never get up that early.
Tonight Kelly and I are going to a Homeschool book sale. I am hoping to sale some of my books.
I have two boxes of homeschool books that I really need out of my way.
Well that is it for now.
One more thing... my nephews birthday was Thursday. We celebrated on Wed. I have pictures but they will have to wait until later. I am glad that things are better this year than they was last year with my nephew.
