Every year little brown wrens lay their nest in our bird house on our back deck. Over the last couple of weeks we have seen the mommy and daddy bird working tirelessly to feed their babies. Yesterday, the little birds left their next to try out flying for the first time. They were so cute - trying to get a hang of it. It was really like watching a baby take those first steps. After working all afternoon all four little babies made it over our tall fence out into the world. Above is a picture of them before they decided to leave their nest taken yesterday morning.
We also celebrated the Memorial of Jesus Death last night. We had the later memorial which wasn't until 8:40 p.m. The pictures of us were from last night. Aiden was so proud of the fact that he helped pass the wine without spilling it.
Also, I have included a picture of the beautiful flowers my parents sent us. Thanks mom and dad - they are still beautiful almost a week later.
In adoption news, we got all of our paperwork yesterday from Holt. We have to sign and notarize our agreements and send them back with our check which we are trying to get done today. The next step will be waiting for Holt to send us our court date. This usually occurs 2 - 3 months after the referral is assigned. One out of five families have to redo this at least once because of missing information. If we do pass the first time we will get travel dates which usually will occur about ten days after you pass court. If we do not pass we will have to wait 4 - 6 more weeks for a new court date. We hope things go smoothly the first time and get to bring our little girl home sometime late Summer.
