We're still here!

I know- it's been too long. Life got in the way of blogging over the last month, but for a good reason. Jon and I were able to take a vacation together, just the two of us, and it was great. We spent 5 nights in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and honestly, it was the most relaxing vacation I've ever been on. We didn't leave the resort for any excursions, and didn't even participate in any resort games. We simply sat, read, swam, ate and slept...... oh, and Jon threw up, A LOT. We had one day where Jon was sick, we think from Caesar Salad dressing. Anyway, we loved the time together and big thanks to our parents and my sister for keeping the kids.

Well, no big news to report on the adoption. We are now #30 on the list waiting for siblings. Not too encouraging - since we were #31 a month ago. But again, we are confident God has a plan and that he is acting on it even if we can't see any progress. On a good note, we have our USCIS appointment in Milwaukee scheduled for June 30th to get fingerprinted again. This will be my third time getting printed and hopefully the last. Jon and I will have to make a day of it since our appointments are three hours apart. Thank you to those who have offered your prayers and congratulations. Your support means so much to us!

In other news, we are proud to report that Payton had an awesome couple of weekends in baseball. Last weekend he played in a tournament in Ripon and their 9U team took first place. This weekend they played here at home and they took second. For the most part he did great. He is pitching in his first year of kid-pitch and is doing really good. We are most proud of his attitude and character, letting his light shine for Christ as he shows respect for the officials, his coaches and teammates, displays good sportsmanship and genuinely just loves to play the game. Way to go buddy!
