A day at the arboretum!

It is Spring Break and since I teach preschool 3 days a week we had to get out with the crowds and enjoy our week off! My friend Darci and I took our boys to the Arboretum today and they had a great time. There were so many beautiful tulips and flowers....we don't have any pictures of those because the boys were too interested in the exhibits. Right now Storybook Playhouses are touring and the boys would rather be pirates on Captain Hook's ship than care about any flowers!

Here is the treasure island playhouse:)

This was the Eragon playhouse...I had never heard that story before.

Looking at some real fish:)

This is part of the Little House on the Prairie town...

Jackson kept saying I am cooking a hot pot dinner!

Perhaps the only picture of his face....

In the schoolhouse, Jackson was the teacher:)

They had about 15 playhouses in all but the boys were too worn out to see much more so we headed home for our afternoon naps. Next stop is the Museum of Nature and Science on Thursday.....stay tuned:)

Adoption Update: We are most likely back at 5 or possibly 4 due to some lost referrals....this has been a really trying period since we were expecting it this week.....we are just pushing through and knowing God is in control. It may be April but we ask you to join us in praying that it is soon.

I'm glad you had a fun day! We're definitely headed there soon!

And sorry to hear about things stalling on the referral process. That is tough when you are just so close. Keep us posted!

You know we're joining with you...

Also, raising the boy right ... ships over flowers any day!

Also, went on my daily Home Depot trip today and saw a Paul look-alike ... he took a double-take at me and it may be wonder for a second :)

Looks like a fun day! We don't have anything like there here in Indiana. When you said lost referrals are there more than just Krisit? I didn't know of any others.
