Gearing up to hit the Mother Road

As a little distraction from our wait we have decided to take a trip on Route 66.

We're heading to a family reunion in Omaha but will take a major detour from Minneapolis to go thru Illinois, Missouri, Kansas (about 14 miles of it)Oklahoma, Texas, & New Mexico before swinging north thru Colorado to see 2 of our god-children& them on to Nebraska. Although we aren't going to be able to do the full length from Chicago to L.A. we're still pretty excited to be able to hit the parts that we will travel on. To make things a little more interesting we are renting a convertible to feel the wind in our hair. We may try to blog a little from the road & upload a few pictures. This will be good practice for our China trip.

Tick, tock

As we continue to wait we are trying to keep ourselves busy with the normal 'summer things.' Trips to the farmer's market, motorcyle rides, walks with the dog, etc. I can say that not one day goes by where we do not think or talk about Madison. How different life will be with baby, what kinds of fun things we will be able to do & some of the bad habits we have now that will need to go away after the baby comes.

After being married 12 years you tend to get into patterns & routines that don't necessarily lend themselves to being baby friendly. We have planned for some, but I am sure we will discover the depth of what will need to change once she is here.

Rest in Peace

We are sad today about the loss of our Sheba kitty. She was part of our family for almost 12 years.

Referrals came for this month & went thru 11/07/05. We are 11/23 so it is looking like we will not get our referral now until September. We are trying to stay encouraged & trust that God's plan for our life will be done.
