Application is in the MAIL!

It actually went in the mail yesterday, but I have been so busy and sad, I haven't felt like putting it on here. I am super happy that it is finished. We were waiting on a last reference and our family picture that needed to be included in the application. We should hear from AWAA in 10 business days!

Why have I been so busy and sad? Well, I spend half of yesterday at co-op and the last part of the day watching our friends' house be packed into a moving truck, helping cleaning up their rental house. Then, last night their 4 oldest children spent the night at our house and I took them back to their parents this morning. We said our goodbyes and they are off to Colorado. :( It's been a hard day knowing they won't be a church tonight or PE tomorrow. I'm sure there will be tears from my girls (and probably me) periodically the rest of the week.

All in all, two very different emotions pulling at me, excitement at what is yet to come for our family; and serious sadness that we have lost a family that we so dearly love spending time with.

Tomorrow, I will post something much happier...pictures of the girls finished room.
