Did you miss me?
A friend got in touch last week to say she had tried to donate to our Lifesong grant but my blog seemed to be down. Another friend confirmed it. When my own attempts to log in failed, a panic began to settle over me. For eight years I have been chronicling our life here (albeit patchily at times!), and for a day or two, I really believed it might all be lost forever.
Thankfully, my incredibly resourceful husband spent a few days emailing back and forth with a tech support guy and was able to troubleshoot the issue and get us back online. I have told him that all I want for my birthday next month is a hard copy book of my blog. I don’t ever want to go through that anxiety again!
But of course, that only explains the last week of my absence. The few weeks before that were full of the last dregs of summer and the busy beginnings of our Fall schedule. We are now in full swing with Bible studies, AWANA, and even our first ever homeschool co-op (read: I’m teaching science to children other than my own for the first time in twelve years!) It’s busy, but so far it’s a good busy.
We are still waiting for our immigration approval before moving on to the next step of the adoption, but have you seen our thermometer up there?! ^
We have been totally amazed and humbled by the outpouring of love and support people have shown through our Lifesong grant fund. I’ve been thinking maybe we will celebrate the halfway mark ($2000) with a name post. What do you think?
