More Paperwork for #2

This week we've been filling out and filing more paperwork for adoption #2. As you may already know, we have expressed our willingness to adopt a special needs child, or "Child of Promise" (COP) as our agency calls them. The process for adopting special needs children from China has been modified, so we needed to fill out some more paperwork for the new process. Rather than bore you with the details, suffice it to say that things are still in the works. As of now, our wait is about the same...about two years...but that could change if we are matched with a "COP."

And thank the Lord for scanners and email. That sure makes all the paper shuffling a lot easier.

More Pics from the Fair

Here's Lily and Daddy. That's Daddy putting on a good face...he was getting a bit queasy.

Lily learned how clothes were washed in the "olden days."

Finishing out the day with an ice cream dip all over the face.

We weren't even out of the parking lot before someone nodded off.

A Day at the Fair

Lily went to the Puyallup Fair with her Mom and Dad and Grandma and Papa Hepola. She got to sit in a miniature fire truck.

Then she picked out her very own "hog" to ride.

Here she is getting ready to ride the kiddie roller coaster. I think she's saying to the other girls, "Do you really think is such a good idea?"

Driving is one of Lily's favorite activities. This beats those cheesy fake cars with shopping cars attached at the grocery store.

At first, Lily and Papa were going to go down the giant slide together. They made it all the way up the stairs, and then started back down. She wanted to go down with Daddy instead.

First Day of Preschool

Here's Lily (and her monkey backpack) all giddy about heading out to her first day of preschool ("Little Lambs" at our church).

First thing you do is hang up your backpack.

Next, you find your nametag and your box with your name on it.

Then, you finish your long, hard, busy day (well, okay, 2 hours) at preschool with a chocolate shake at Red Robin.
