I know I am the world's worst blogger. I really have good intentions. We have been traveling, kids have been sick, out of town visitors... those are all my excuses. Really, they are pretty good ones... LOL.

Other than all of our busy-ness, we have been pretty good. With our travels and sick kids, my kids have missed a ton of school. We started 2011 off a little ahead, which felt great. Well, not anymore! My kids missed all of last week, and by the looks of it, Jackson is going to miss this one. I suppose that is the beauty of homeschooling. Speaking of homeschooling, I need to find something to supplement with Jackson for spelling. Does anyone have any suggestions? Anyone have a child that struggles with spelling that can share ideas or resources? If so, please share!

On the adoption front, China will release the new shared list tonight. I am actually pretty relaxed considering I could actually see Willa's face TODAY. Honestly though, I don't feel like tonight is going to be "it" for us. Maybe that is why I feel so peaceful about it? It just doesn't seem like it will happen tonight. At this point, I just want to know the outcome. Will we? Wont we? Either way, I trust in Jesus' timing. I just hate the anticipation and waiting. I feel like I am waiting to take a pregnancy test. It could be positive, it could be negative. You just have to wait it out. I am not good at waiting it out. LOL.

If we get our "positive" tonight, I will be sure to share as much as I can tomorrow! Pray for us! In His time!

I would be on pins and needles, so the fact that you are at peace is a beautiful thing. You just never know! ;) Agreeing in prayer along with you for HIS perfect timing... oh how I can't wait until you have that big WILLA announcement to post! :)

And as for bad bloggers... pretty sure I've got you beat in that dept! ;)
