I'd love to say lots is happening on our adoption front right now, but that just isn't the case.  Actually, our court documents began their trans-Atlantic journey on Monday.  (I'm not sure exactly how long it takes to get them to our Little Dude's country.)  It'll be about 2-3 weeks until they are translated and delivered to the judge in the region.  She then has 10 days to review our documents and tell us what she wants revised, more information on, etc.  We've been warned that this *always* happens, so it's not a matter of if  she'll want something re-done but what  it will be.  The judge reviewing our documents is the one who will preside over our hearing, so she'll already be very familiar with the info about us, our family, financial status, and our Little Dude when we get to that point.

There is some rest at this point of our journey.  Until we hear from the judge, we're done doing.  While we still have some loose strings to tie-up on our Adoption Education requirements, for the most part we can just rest and pray. 

And although we're anxious to have our Little Dude home, time marches on.  There are memories to be made in the lives our 2yo and 4yo.  We've been enjoying the warm weather the past few days having played in the yard, the sandbox, at the park, had a picnic, roasted hotdogs, and made s'mores.  We love the switch to Daylight Savings time because it means that many more hours to play outside after Daddy comes home.  I'm embarassed to admit how many summer evenings we play until dark and only then come in to eat dinner.

So that's where we're at right now... waiting and making memories.
