We only have 5 more days of our Walk Across The World! Plenty of time to get out there and walk, use the extra motivation of all of the fattening candy you are likely to be eating in just a few days!
A quick update on the I800A form....we're still waiting......and waiting......and waiting! This is the part that makes the activity of reading other adoption blogs fairly miserable. I can't count how many people are saying that their form came through faster than it should have. :-( Not ours!
I am still hopeful that the twins will be home for Christmas, although each day that goes by makes it less and less likely. Time to get back on my knees in prayer....
This post is proof that every family should spend more time outside together without other distractions. I firmly believe that a big part of why Heavenly Father wanted us to do this fundraiser is for all of us to spend some much needed time with one another where we aren't feeling overwhelmed and pulled 500 different directions.
The start of our walk began with my parents bringing over an Edible Arrangement. YUM! And, we decided to go on our walk and have a picnic with our beautiful fruits and chocolate.
We made it down to the sandy beach at the edge of the river.
And then the sweetness and sugar kicked in....let the fun begin!
The children all wanted to show how running in the sand was like being on a treadmill
Then they decided to run up the hill and Amelia decided that she wanted to steal the show!
Don't worry, she was fine! Hey, maybe she has a future as a stunt double!
There was a ton of laughter and merriment! And, on the way back....we all felt glad to be together.
And, we saw a deer! According to Robertson, it was huge with a full rack! From what the rest of us could tell it was a very small and young doe.
A perfect Halloween tale to tell.......
Where are we on our "virtual" walk?
We were so happy to get out of remote Nevada but now it appears we are stuck out in the middle of nowhere in Utah!
We are now located in the Fish Springs National Wildlife Rescue. I searched and searched to find something interesting about this location.
Here is the best that I could find (honestly!)
Okay, brief science lesson over....if you want to hear more about interesting places to visit in Utah, get out there and get walking! LOL! Thanks to all of you for your continued support. Hopefully soon, I will be reporting that we got the I800A approval!
