Hi! This is going to be my 3rd attempt at this post! I have no clue what happened to the first two so who knows! We have been busy. First off-thanks for the prayers for little Charlie. He is doing better-released from the hospital and back to the orphanage. God is so good to care for the orphans.
We just got back on Thursday evening from Washington. We went to visit my family and we had so much fun! Mia loves her litte cousin Shay and is still asking for her each time she wakes up or we head for the car. They had so much fun together. Grandpa Aaron watched them most evenings while the rest of us played Dutch Blitz. It was great! We got to go to Ellensburg-which is where I grew up. Labor Day is Rodeo Weekend in this town and they have a great parade. We left Pasco at 6:30 am to be there and get good seats so Mia could run out and get candy:) It rained on us but it was the best to be there. It was fun to have Brett see the funkiness that I grew up in! We also got to visit my elderly friend Kitty Moe. She is 104 and has the neatest stories to tell. Her family was some of the founding fathers of this country. Mia sat in her lap a little and I think Kitty was thrilled.
Well its been back to craziness since we got home! I have a ton to do and Mia's first birthday home is this next week. Praise God for this little girl who makes our days so filled with joy and laughter, and sometimes complete frustration:)
May you be blessed-A
