Application complete

Yesterday I was able to mail the remainder of our application.  This included my doctor's form, Kellar's employment letter, proof of health insurance from company, and 12 pictures of our home and family. 
Hopefully we hear very soon about our homestudy visit.  Once this is complete and in the Gladney office they will review our application and decide to make us officially in the Ethiopia program.  I am taking this one day at a time.  

Pomegranate experience:
The kids discovered a display of pomegranates in our Walmart and wanted to try one.  At that time I was in a hurry and said maybe next time.  This weekend we were in our new Fresh Market and the kids told Kellar "mommy wants to buy one" so he goes over to the display while I am in the long line to check out and he freaks out not knowing which to pick.  Sunday I was back in our Walmart and the kids and I picked one out.  We opened it yesterday at dinner and enjoyed this new fruit for us all.  Kellar was still apprehensive, but he too bit into the juicy, red arils.  Kellar compared it to a cross between cranberry and corn.  So next time you are in your local grocery, why not pick out a pomegranate and enjoy.

I have a pomegranate in my fridge right now. You know, if you get all the arils out & put them in an airtight container with a paper towel they'll stay fresh for about 2 weeks.
and YAY! on finishing and mailing the application!!

I'm not a fan of pomegranates. Feels like I should be spitting out all those tiny seeds...bothers me. :) They're supposedly quite high in antioxidants and all that jazz.
