No news on the adoption journey. Will and I pray everyday for "his brother" and know that God is protecting him even though he is not known by us at the moment. Certainly, I hope that the day comes soon, very soon!
Will and I have been busy on weekends and the evenings. We've been enjoying the outdoors as much as possible. I really like the fall season here in western Pennsylvania. It has been sunny and 70-80 degrees. Last Sunday evening, the remnants of Hurricane Ike hit. We had wind gusts of up to 79mph. Thousands of people lost power and were in the dark for up to four days. We were spared the power outage but lost quite a few tree limbs.
Last week, Will and I went to Pittsburgh with education students. We rode the Just Ducky tour, which I thought was a great tour of Pittsburgh. The tour is in an amphibian truck, which was cool. We had two great tour guides. We saw quite a bit of the city (it is much nicer than I knew) and we also went on the rivers as well. Will got to drive the boat. We also had dinner at Hard Rock Cafe.
Work is keeping me busy. Will is enjoying school. He seems to be learning so much. He had such a great week last week--he was given a teddy bear by his teacher. Actually, the bear was one of many donated and he was told that if I would agree, he could take the beat home. This teddy bear is the LARGEST teddy bear I've seen.
