Brief factual update

May 5th, 2008 · No Comments

There are several things I’d like to blog about, but I’ll have to do it another time. For now, I’ll just summarize:

* I managed to get all of our plants and seeds in the ground over the weekend except the carrots. I didn’t have time to do them, but I hope to get them in soon.

* I finished Alexis’ butterfly wings. I didn’t get to take a picture of them because I had to send them to school today, but if they come back home at some point I’ll take one and post it. They turned out pretty nice.

* We went to some of Apple Blossom Festival Friday, but we were rather disappointed. Rather than the family atmosphere I had hoped to find, there were more teens wandering around using foul language and people hanging out drinking beer than anything else. And this was in the area with the games and the parade. I don’t know that we’ll bother going to that part of the Festival next year.

* I might be leaving May 12th instead of the 14th for Ethiopia. The flight for the 14th is full right now, but since many of the flights have adoptive parents on them and some of those parents generally end up having to change their travel dates due to uncertain embassy dates (confusing process), I still might be able to get on that one. For now, the travel agent who’s booking the trip for us has me confirmed for a flight out on the 12th and wait listed for the 14th. We’ll see what happens!
