Now onto why we have been so busy, and why it has taken so long to write a blog post:
The number one reason for me should be because of this:
So the real reasons we have been so busy...
Monday I went to a Discovery Toys party. I mainly went to hang out with moms from our church and to learn about educational toys for little ones. I had no intentions of ordering anything, but you know how those parties work :-) There are three books sold together, "Wiggle & Move", "Touch & Tickle", and "Calm & Soothe"; and the description says, "This trio of board books offers read-along ideas for boosting baby's physical development while deepening parent-child bonds." How perfect for an adopted child!!! I was so excited, I couldn't help but order them... and it was only $15 for the set. So, after our child is home and I try some of these exercises I'll blog about them and let you guys know if I like them or not (even though that may be a while). If you want more information about Discovery Toys you can go here.
Tuesday we just hung around the house... Thanks James! (hahaha... by the way I already think it is funny!)... sorry other blog readers-inside joke.
Wednesday we drove to Atlanta for this:
With these amazing friends:
It was an awesome game...Go Braves!!!
(Thanks again Casey and Marianne-I'm pretty sure we will never be able to repay you!)
Thursday... more baseball... but, this time we only had to go a few miles to watch the game. We got tickets through Jason's firm to see the local semi-pro team, the Macon Pinetoppers:
Friday I had to be at my cousin's wedding rehearsal at 6:00 to help out a little. Right after the rehearsal I ran home changed and headed to the gym for some much needed treadmill time. Our friends Andy and Jenn talked Jason into doing his first sprint triathlon, which will be August 14th, and he began training for it this past Monday... he is crazy! I'm pretty sure I would be doing good to run one mile, but I can say one thing... I will be the best cheerleader wife he has ever had :-) hahaha. After the gym (at 9:00pm) we went to Bass Pro Shops, one of our favorite stores. They had a bow give away at 9:30 and you had to be present to win (which, by the way, we didn't). We walked around, ran into some old friends and talked for a little while, and then decided (at 10:00) to go to Waffle House for dinner, so much for working out. We had a wonderful W.H. dinner with good conversation!! I love how God randomly puts good Christian friends in your life (and thanks John Drew tennis classes).
Saturday my family came into town for my cousin's wedding (yay for having family living in the same city!!!) For once, I didn't have to leave Macon for a family event!
