Elijah had his first soccer game Saturday. Kellar is his coach. His team was unable to score any goals but they had fun running and kicking the soccer ball around the field. Elijah played goalie for a part of the game. I think he is still unsure of himself. We will miss this Saturday's games but will be back strong the next week.
Ashleigh's team did really well. I told Ashleigh's coach who is that girl that looks like my daughter but this girl was running and kicking the ball. This was her best game in 4 seasons. Here are some pictures of our soccer stars.

Approval came today

Oh my, I am so excited. One of Elijah's chores on Wednesday is to get the mail. Ashleigh was reading to him so I went on down to the mailbox, saw a large envelope, grabbed it, saw it was from NC Immigration and ran into the house practically in tears shouting "oh happy day".
This is the day I have long waited for. Thank you to all who prayed. I have a couple papers to gather with this and send it off to be authenticated.
We are on the way to the waiting list!!!

Science Experiment

Check out my young scientists. Last week they collected water samples (well actually I collected Ashleigh's). I was in Bath, NC over the weekend on the Pamlico River so I decided to gather some water for her. Elijah's water came from a ditch near our home.
Yesterday you can see what the next step was. Next week they will l
ook at the results that are growing in the petri dishes (maybe salmonella, e-coli...).
Every 15 seconds somewhere in the world a child dies from water related disease (3800 children a day!!!)- world vision

I Must be Crazy, I joined Facebook

I have had this crazy idea for some time now to get onto facebook. Kellar has been on for awhile, never much interest on my part until recently. Maybe because this year marks mine (and Kellar's) 20th high school reunion. Well last night I joined. Kellar started me out by letting his friends know I was now on facebook. My day has been spent confirming friends and seeing what facebook is all about.

Adoption update: I needed to renew my doctor's form, did that still waiting for the call to say it has been notarized
We are still waiting for NC USCIS, we were finger printed last November, still waiting What a day of rejoicing it will be when the mailman delivers our approval letter
