Bad blogger! Shame on Me!

No we did not drop off the face of the planet, though at times it feels like the earth is burning up it is SOOO hot outside right now!  We have kept busy and we are trying to survive this summer and praying for rain and fall so soon! 

So on to the updates!  Camden is in soccer and he loves it!  He enjoys going every week and has a blast.  The teachers are so good with all the kids and he just loves getting out there and playing!

Dasha started dance/gymnastics at the beginning of the month.  The class is divided into two parts 30 minutes dance, 30 minutes gymnastics.  The dance part is not so great, Dasha just stands there and stares, she is not a dancer, but she LOVES the gymnastics part.  She jumps into the foam pits, climbs, does her somersaults, jumping on the trampoline!  We were also able to escape down to the lake for 5 days and meet up with our adoption small group at the lake for a fun weekend together!

Also the biggest news is that last Saturday Randy finished his 1 year contract with the hospital and he was able to go per-diem and how he only works 4 days a week instead of 5!  Wahoo!!!  1 more day at home is going to be awesome!

Also I finished my first college class in almost 10 years, Algebra and I got an A!  Next semester it is Anatomy and then I can apply for my program next February!  Camden has been enjoying summer school and he got moved up to the older class as he is all caught up.  He loves his new class.  I also had a conference with Dasha's teacher for her in the fall and we got a plan laid out for her. 

Also we are starting our 6 month follow-ups on almost all our appts.  So we will be visiting the audiologist, the nephrologist, the oncologist, the dentist.  So the next month is going to be busy!

Below are the pictures from our retreat weekend with our small group.
