Not so much to share on the home front, but I will say - we are closer to Jada than we were yesterday!! That's what I cling to over here. Are we tired of waiting? Yep! Are we wondering what in the world China is up to? Yep! Can we do anything about any of it? Nope! So we continue to wait and pray. We have been following other families that are on our I-800 track and we are encouraged - a couple of other families that sent their paperwork in about the same time to China have their Travel Approval (TA) and that is what we are waiting for! Once we get that - then we wait for a consulate appointment and we can FLY - literally!
The whole TB immunization issue is now a concern since the CDC came down with some new rules. That is one more thing to cover in prayer - we DO NOT wish to go through anything like this brave family.
I took Chloe in for her Kindergarten physical yesterday - the girl is in the 90% percentile for height - she just keeps growing! People tell us she is tall and that proved it! She had to get four shots though - she kept asking me all the way there, "Do you think they will decide I don't need the shots?" Hated to let her down, but I said I doubted they'd do that. So no, she got them all - didn't cry out loud, but those silent tears running down her cheeks about did me in. Glad that's done!!
In the meantime, since I have nothing more of excitement to share - enjoy our new favorite!
Oh, and for this SUPER HOT weather - you might need my other new favorite - that was sent to me as a sample - one of the best I've tried yet! (Do you see a fruity theme going on here??)
And Chloe won't let me leave off one of our favorite new games - Hey, we may even learn some Mandarin while we play - Don't worry Jada - at least we'll be able to count with you!
So there you have it - nothing exciting but you can count on me to keep you informed.
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
