"We're going to Ethiopia!!!! APRIL 5th is our court date!!"
Our Bible story that morning was about Hannah and how she prayed and prayed for a child and God answered her prayers and gave her S*****!
We booked our tickets this morning. We leave on March 30th. It's spring break for the kids so they will be going to my parents house in Iowa. Please pray for all the details to come together. Thank you all for being excited with us.
FYI- We will not be bringing him home this trip. This is a trip to stand before an Ethiopian judge and tell them that we want to be his parents. After we pass court we are submitted to embassy which could take anywhere from 3 to 12 weeks. When we have embassy clearance then I will go back and get him. (Anyone want to join me?!)

Today we made the rule that the timeout doesn't start until he is silent.(I realize this in not a new concept) When he was silent then I would set the timer on the stove. Can you tell he was not a big fan at first? He would just scream,"I. SAID. I'M. DUST. SO. SORRRRRY!!!"

Our friend Sean arrived from AZ and he hardly had his shoes off before the fighting began. Junedog had been dreaming a battle.
I overheard Sean said something like, "I'll never complain about the heat in AZ again..."
Time for more fighting... yeah!!
