Over the moon!

I wonder where that expression came from... over the moon... hmm, I might have to look that up. Anyway, that is what I am right now... over the moon. I got an email today from our adoption agency saying that the Kaz Parliament has passed the new laws.  So, that is why I am over the moon.  What does this mean for us? Well, we are still waiting.  The laws now have to pass through the Senate.  When will that happen?  I have no idea.  But it is so exciting to see forward movement on this again!

Jon was just away for 3 weeks, which always leaves me with too much time on my hands. Too much time to think about things.  I started to worry that this would never happen, and started looking at other countries that might be a possibility for us.  A few times during this research, I clearly heard God tell me to wait and be patient.  Of course you think my response would be, "okay God, I trust you."  But, it was more along the lines of, " I do trust you God, but I am just looking... what harm is there in that?"  Then I realized I was just looking, because I wasn't trusting.  So, I fully believe that our daughter (s?) are in Kazakhstan, and I need to wait and pray.

Other family news... our youngest Devon just graduated from 5th Grade.  Here in Georgia, you start Middle School in 6th Grade.  So, both boys will be at the local Middle School next year!  We went to his ceremony and watched him walk the halls one last time... pretty emotional.  For the time being we are done with Elementary School.  Such a strange place to be at all of a sudden.  Devon has now lived in Georgia longer then he ever lived in California.  All of his formal schooling has been here.  So amazing how fast things go. 

 Bring on summer!  I am ready for the heat, pool days, no schedule, fireflies, backyard bbq's, and all the fun stuff that comes along with this season!
