This whole summer has been so busy and eventful. Maybe it is what some would call a watershed summer. I know I am tired; but it is a good tired.
They didn't win any special awards at State, but the experience was awesome.
When this official part was over we went to enjoy the rest of the fair. We walked through a lot of displays and even across the midway (interesting!).
We eventually ended up in the Ohio Department of Natural Resources section which was awesome.
Walked through a garden of Ohio Native Plants:
And were diggin' up bones:
We drove the two hours home so that early in the morning we could drive 4 hours to visit with our new children. We took a picnic to the park and spent the afternoon together. Unfortunately, there was a golf classic in town and no motels were available, so we drove the 4 hours back home. The visit was wonderful and we can't wait to have our children with us forever. I will be protecting their privacy as best I can until all the legal t's are crossed -- so no pictures or names. We will have a some visits at our house the next two weeks and then plan on a final placement the end of August. We are so excited!
After all that we were physically, and emotionally drained. We decided to spend the entire day at home on Sunday. Jerome chose a sermon video that we own and he set up the basement like our own home church.
After all of this running Jerome and I were discussing the arrival of children #7 and #8. We looked at each other and knew that this is likely it. We are about to have a full family. We have started to exhale....
