Where has the time gone?

Well, here we are half way through October and I have not updated in quite a while. We have had a great start to school and seem to be back into a routine at night. My kids have been in bed 90% of the time between 8-8:30. It has been really nice! Eric has been home every night at a normal time and it makes for a happy home.

We have "no news" on the adoption front. We are still waiting for our updated medical report and have requested new pictures. I will follow up on this AGAIN by the end of the week if I have not heard anything. I am really excited for my friend Kristi who will be traveling very soon to get her sweet girl. God is good!

In September our family participated in "Race for the Cure". This is something we have done for several years now and always enjoy it once were there. Eric's aunt Linda is a breast cancer survivor and we walk in her honor. It is wonderful how many walk from our church community and I love that we share so many aspects of life together.
We are so thankful for Aunt Linda!

Kaylin turns "10"
I can't believe I have a child that is 10yrs. old. We had a friend birthday party at our home and then we took the girls to Claire's for the last hour of the party. Did you know Claire's offers b-day parties? I didn't either! When I heard about this, I thought it was the best idea ever. Instead of going somewhere and paying for food, party bags, games etc... You buy each girl a $5-10 gift card and they get to go shopping for something they want. It was so easy and the kids had a blast! What 10yr. old girl does not want to shop at Claire's. I really enjoyed being with Kaylin's friends. They are all a lot of fun and made me smile the whole night!

Blake's only find at Claire's...dinosaur fossil. :)

Last weekend we went to the Oregon State Football game in Corvallis. We had a really fun time and it was the kids first time to be at a college game. My sister is a Junior at OSU and we met our family at her place. They have such a beautiful campus, lots of trees and neat old buildings. It was much different than the small christian college I went to. The Beavers won, and fun was had by all!
