I had a slight drop in mood just now. A tiny disappointment that made me realize how hard I'm finding the wait to travel to meet the boys. One of the parents who traveled recently to Ethiopia to pick up her daughter very generously carried a care package for them. She was able to give it to the nannies, but the boys were not there. Her daughter is an infant and is housed in another building, so she wasn't able to get back to see them during her stay.
So no pictures or small anecdote. I know, as soon as we get there and meet them, all of these anxieties and desires will melt away. Most likely to be replaced by new ones! But I still feel a wee bit sad.
Good news of the day: Our tenants are moving out of the house Saturday, so we can start moving in next week! It will be more space for us and the boys and Chauncey and all of our stuff. As soon as I know they are gone I will begin taping out our new bedroom to repaint it in a color called "zenful." No, I did not choose it for its name! I really like the color! Maybe I'll show you when I get it done. I finished one of the boy's bird blankets, to begin another this weekend, too. They are easy, just the binding is time-consuming. I'll post pics of that, too.
Another parent who is picking up her daughter next week will be taking photos for us. Her daugher is 5, so she will be in the same area as our guys. More opportunity to take a picture. I hope!
