September TUSAL

Lots going on since last post. We've been busy doing last minute adoption paperwork and I'm happy to report that we got an email from our agency today stating that our dossier has been sent to Russia. Yay! It's nice to get to this point again, paperchasing is mostly over for the moment. Now we wait and sometime between now and next summer we'll get "the call" and be off halfway round the world again to meet our new child. It seems like everything is going faster this time but I think it's just that Josh is home with us now so there's less time to sit around and think about how long everything is taking.

We've also been busy getting ready for a family vacation. The three of us are taking off after work tomorrow and getting out of town for a long weekend. Not going too far, just a couple hours away. We're hoping to take Josh to a new zoo and to see a cool train exhibit we've heard about as well as get in some time for shopping and just relaxing.

Almost forgot that today is TUSAL day. I've been busy working away on the center of Chatelaine's Watergarden since I finished Flamingo but you can still see some of those pink orts peeking out from under all the blues...

And here's the Watergarden progress so far...

I'm planning to take it on vacation with us and hopefully get some good stitching time in while Josh naps. Or maybe I'll nap too, we'll see. Have a great rest of the week!

Love the blues in that design. Hope you all have a wonderful vacation, and that time flies between now and meeting your new family member!
