Catching up

Henry is adding new words to his vocabulary. Here are two of my favorites-
He use to call Igor - EEEEEEE- but now he say "DEEE-door" or "EEE-door". I giggle every time he says it. Henry also says, "Ah, Man." Rob and Igor say this phrase as well.

I finally filed Henry's re-adoption paperwork at the courthouse! I've been putting it off for far too long. I'm so glad my part is complete and marked off my list.

I started Christmas shopping. Yes, I know it's September. I looked at the calendar and started to freak out a little bit. We have things coming up at church, an adoption seminar, Rob is going on a mission trip for a week in October and the Ethiopia trip is Nov 30-Dec 9. I need to get a head start or I'll be Christmas shopping the week before Christmas.

We took the boys to the zoo this week. We had a great time.

We had a conference call with Children's Hope Chest today. There are 11 people going on the vision trip to Ethiopia. We will visit 6-7 orphanages and care points. One location has 400 children! Another location is 6 hours outside Addis.
On Friday we should have a list of items people can donate. I will post the list here on my blog.
I have my plane tickets and I have renewed my passport! I received two vaccines today- Yellow fever and the polio booster. All that is left is malaria pills which I will take much closer to the trip. My list of things to do is getting shorter!!

Check out Henry wearing my new adoption t-shirt! You can buy one at Caleb and Rebecca's blog.

On Monday my grandmother passed away in her sleep. She was 96 years old and lived a full life. I'm certain she is rejoicing in heaven now.

I know you will miss your grandma, but am happy that she had a full life and is with Jesus!

Love you! Susan

I'm so glad you're sharing about your mission trip. I'll be praying for you and I can't wait to hear about how God uses this in your life and the lives of the children.

...I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother, but I'm so glad you have the peace of knowing she's with Jesus.
With love,
