Our family enjoyed a trip to Michigan and Chicago to visit family and friends. The kids did great on the long trip. They got to meet Jim's dad for the first time. We enjoyed spending time with family and friends! Thanks to the Chadeks for letting us stay with them for 3 nights. The trees were beautiful and besides a little rain the weather was great. I'll never forget when Derly and Estefania were amazed at the red leaves on the ground, they couldnt believe their eyes. (trees dont change color in Colombia as we learned). They are getting excited for Halloween and they are all getting dedicated at church on Oct 30th. We got to meet a family who came home last week from Colombia with their precious kids.
We continue to work on paperwork for Jhon, we are hoping to get our homestudy back this next week which we can then apply for our I800. Still looking at traveling around April hopefully. The kids can't wait to see him and talk about him a lot.
