We have exactly one more week of living in the United States. Hello...craziness.
I'm crazy excited. I mean, the whole thing is just crazy period (how many times can I use the word "crazy" in this post). I'm a little weirded out, but also really excited. In some ways I know exactly what to expect...the biggest thing being that you can't rely on what you expect. :) It'll be fun and we are just getting the little last-minute details all sorted out. The next few days holds many things for us...
--we are having Ebersole family time together tonight...a meal and prayer time
--tomorrow will be our last "normal" day here, then church with the family tomorrow night
--Thurs. morning - Sat. morning me and Joel (and Asa since I'm still nursing) are going to go on a little getaway...a relaxing, do nothing getaway; it is kind of for our 5-year anniversary; since we celebrated our 6-year anniversary in Feb., it's a little overdue, don't you think?; we are going to Cape Cod to a hotel on the beach (we got a great deal)
--Sat. after we come back, we have a "photo shoot" with Joel's brother...we are hoping for some great weather and great pictures of our family
--Sunday is Joel's brother's high school graduation...also, we will be prayed over at Joel's family's church
--Monday we will definitely be packing and getting everything together
--Tuesday...AIRPLANE TO BRAZIL (as it says on Grady's calendar I made him...he was constantly asking when we were going to Brazil...he's known for months, so one day he finally said, "Mama, what are we waiting for?" :)...I decided that boy needed a calendar of his own to mark off days)
Here are a few pictures of our first week here...
Cool Mo Dee and a day at the beach.
Hadley and Asa with little Joss...the moms looking on (me and Kristin).
Grady, Hadley, and Alexa sharing a wagon ride.
Uncle Danny's last week of school...they always have a toga day for the seniors.
Hadley, Grady, Alexa, Asa, and Joss...all 5 Ebersole grandchildren (there is one little boy on the way in July...Micah Joseph).
The 2 little ones...Asa and Joss. Joss is 3 weeks older than Asa.
On Saturday Joel's parents took us all to a water park...it was really fun.
The kids had a ton of fun...it was a great relaxing and fun day.
My mom gave Hadley and Asa matching outfits. We had to take pictures to send her.
The happy Grandma with Grady and Hadley.
On Sunday we went to a birthday party for a little Brazilian girl. This little boy's mom is married to a Brazilian...she is American...her name is Amy. Interesting trivia...her best friend's name is Hadley.
Me and Asa at that party.
