Happy Birthday Kiddo! See you soon!

Hello everyone,

Our littlest boy turned two on April 8! Our sadness at not being able to be with him was slightly tempered by the purchase of airline tickets. YES! We bought our tickets and are on our way to meet little guy in 20 days. We are so excited!

We had a few people over last night to share our excitement and thoughts about our upcoming trip. It was great to visit with friends and anticipate sharing our Russian adventure with them.

We also found out that blog friends of ours will be having their court date while we are there. We are so happy that we will get to meet them and their children. It will be so great to share stories and thoughts.

We will miss the boys so much but know that they will be in good hands with Joel's parents. I am sure the week will go fine and they will have fun. We will be able to Skpe with them every day so that eases some anxiety.

So, there is a lot to do in the next 20 days. I am sure there will be craziness and stress over the next 3 weeks but it is all worth it. What a nice feeling it will be to board that plane of the 29th. Praise the Lord!

Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers!
To God be the glory, great things He has done!
Joel and Clarion
