Da Day and a Very Early Spring

It's Da day!  While yesterday marked the four year anniversary of us going into court and standing before a judge explaining why we would be the best parents in the world for a little 22 month old boy in Baby House #5, today marks 4 years since we got our Da.  You can read all about our agonizing wait here.

The good news is, we got the answer we prayed for and were able to move on to our 10 day waiting period without too much of a prolonged agony.

We did celebrate a little yesterday by taking Aidan to Stick and Shoot after his Mini Mites game.  He loved it.  We ended up eating dinner at the Ice House and watching most of the Caps game (Go Caps!!) there.  An all around good day.

I have to also share these pictures:

This is our Cherry Tree and I put this picture in the last post:

And this is what it looks like from the upstairs hallway:

I'm sharing this because, well, it's really beautiful.  But, also, I can't help thinking that it bloomed soooo early!  In fact, it looked like this when we returned home from Russia in mid April.  That is when it typically blooms!  I'm not complaining, but it does make me wonder how this summer is going to be!

Pat's has been working some double shifts lately--some because of weather (it's spring!) and some because people are starting to take time off due to the nice weather.  But, luckily for our little boy, he's been able to come by the house in the bucket truck!

Happy Spring, y'all!

We've had unusually warm weather too. Our trees started budding out in February this year. Crazy!

My Bradford bloomed 2 weeks ago about 4 weeks early and I have mowed the yard twice now! Unheard of here in KC!
