Camping and Violet update…

Camping was fun this weekend. In the beginning, I couldn’t believe that Hubby was “making” me go camping (on our 15th anniversary too) when I have so much to do here at the house before we leave on Thursday, but I am now so glad that we went. He said I needed to get away and relax, away from the house, and he was right. Sitting on the rocks by the lake, listening to the waves hit the shore…I was able to relax and just “be still”. Luckily, Hubby doesn’t read my blog, so he won’t know that I said how right he was! :-)

I have been cleaning and organizing all day! I just don’t want to have a lot of stuff like that hanging over my head after we get Violet here, I want to be able to just focus on the kids, and all of us getting to know each other. I even pulled out the washer and dryer today and cleaned behind there, believe me it was scary! EEK!

We had a phone conference last Thrursday with Violet’s foster parents, and it was so encouraging to me! We, for the first time, heard positive things about Violet! Up until now it has just been all the things that she has a hard time with, behaviours that she has done to show her unhappiness, ect…but now I can have much more postitive images in my head when I think of her. She giggles, she likes to be tickled, she likes Barney, and Dora the Explorer, she likes to ask if she looks cute in the mornings after she gets dressed, she likes bubbles in the tub, eats just about anything but spinach, and her nickname is Peaches. :-) I heard her say her name over the phone, and my heart melted hearing that little voice. Oh, I can’t wait to see her!!!!

I leave you with some pictures of our camping trip!

Love one another!~Yvonne

    Camping already? Lucky you! My hubby is going ice-fishing this weekend which means camping is still a while away.

    Praying for all of you and for Violet. I am looking forward to seeing her become a part of your family. One more little camper to be added to the family…

    I thought of you last night when we were watching Heroes. :) Bill and I were so bummed to here it won’t be on again for 7 weeks. 7 weeks! What are they thinking?!?

    So glad you had some quiet, peaceful moments as you prepare for another big transition in your family. I got chills hearing the details you learned about Violet, knowing how much that meant to you and how neat it is to learn things about your new daughter. Truly amazing to me! I loved the camping pictures! I’ll be thinking of you on the 8th!!!!
    Love, Lizzie
