One for the Money, Two for the Show, Three to Get Ready. And Four to Go!!!

It's amazing to think that a month ago we were going about our day like a court date wasn't imminent and then now it's right around the corner!

We have been taking care of last minute details, packing lists, shopping, reservations, changing reservations, executing wills, collecting donations for the orphanage, getting house and puppy sitters, puppy health issues, changing puppy sitter plans and more.

Last Friday, Mr. Peabody passed away.  It was tough, but after 13 years of being our #1 pup, he made his exit. We are thankful this happened before we left, but very sad to see him go.  He was a great dog, and health declined quickly over the last few months.
R.I.P Mr. Peabody

Last Sunday, we took the day to go out to the lake and it was a great way to spend time together as a family!

We all had a great time inter-tubing and spending time with our Associate Pastors.  They have been at the church for 20 years this year, and it's neat to get to spend time with them away from church and get to know them better!

As many of you know, this process takes two trips.  The first trip is our court date.  The next trip is our embassy appointment, after the court and citizenship paperwork has been issued.  We won't know any of the details of timeline until after the court date has been completed and paperwork has been issued.

We aren't posting exact dates or information, but we ask that you pray for our health and safety as well as a successful trip.  Also for Dane to be comforted while we are away and for Isaac to be ready to meet us and for us to be able to spend as much time as possible with him while we are there.

Thank you all of your support!
