No Travel Confirmation Date Yet

We still do not have a travel confirmation date. Our caseworker at AGCI told us that we still have a tentative travel date for the 22nd, but it will not be confirmed until next Monday. We are getting worried about finding a flight where we can all sit together! Hopefully, it will all work out. Hopefully, ticket prices will not be too high! 


The girls were on Spring Break this week. They were extremely helpful in completing some of the final preparations for the twins. Ashley cleaned and reorganized the entire toy area in the basement. She had some help from cousins Conner and Avery. All of the toys are already for Blake and Emery! Ashley also helped me with some yard clean up and other household chores. Nicole helped create a video clip of the twins. She did all of the editing and correcting of my errors! I will share it in this post. We also had some fun this week. The girls and I went to the mall to finish up some Spring clothes shopping. We also had a nice lunch at Panera. They had their friends from next door spend the night on Wednesday. Five 12 and 13 year old girls - needless to say, it was a very giggly night! We are very fortunate to have lived right next door for over 10 years to a family with a daughter the same age as Ashley and twin daughters the same age as Nicole. The five girls basically grew up together and they are all great friends. Their mom is a great friend to me as well. Couldn't ask for more perfect neighbors! My sister took Nicole for a make-up lesson at a salon this week while Ashley and I went scrapbook shopping. Very fun for both girls! We colored Easter Eggs this morning with Conner and Avery. The girls are now with their cousins at a water park! I am sure this will be a big hit for all four of them. Thanks to my sister for taking them! It is very hard waiting to travel when we are so close! I am anxious to get the twins home. Especially since we thought we would have them home by the end of February. With Bruce being so busy during tax season, getting them home by the end of April probably is best. This way Bruce can take some time off to be with all of us during the first week or so home. Working 14 hour days is not very conducive to transitioning new kids into a family! So, all in all, God's timing is the best timing! 


Here is the video clip of Blake and Emery.   Happy Easter Everyone!
