A Long Overdue Post...

I can't believe it's been so long since I've updated. I think these first pictures are from February (a little bit old). Luke got a soccer goal set for Christmas. We played in the back yard with it and then went to the park. Luke gets to play soccer next spring and he is already super excited!At the beginning of spring break Nana and Jen came to visit. Luke went home with them and spent four nights. He had a blast!Aunt Jen bought him new sunglasses while he was there. Daniel turned 28 at the end of March. Luke came up with the idea for his birthday cake. The cups in the background - Our home group meets at our house every Sunday night. We have about 12 couples and about 10 kids. I should post pics of the play room after a home group. :) We have a great time though.

We got almost two feet of snow at the end of March. It started sleeting on a Thursday evening. Daniel went in to work for a little while Friday morning and by Friday afternoon it was a blizzard. We didn't even try to go anywhere until Sunday night. Luke helped Daniel shovel off the driveway.Daniel spoke at a youth retreat on the Friday and Saturday of Easter Weekend so Luke and I got to spend the weekend at Nana and Papa's. We colored eggs on Friday before Daddy left.Saturday morning we went to the egg hunt at Papa and Nana's church.That afternoon Papa and Luke had a great time kicking the ball in the front yard.Luke is going through a posing face where he will do something and want me to take his picture. He tucked his shades in his shirt and asked me to take his picture. He said this is what Papa does - only he pronounced does like "doos". Too cute!Another posed picture. A boy and his dog!We kept our friends little girl for a couple of hours last week. Luke loves Baby Ally.
Nana and Jen came in last night and left around 2:30 today. We went to Wal-Mart last night and Luke bought a skateboard with his own money. Nana bought him a helmet. :) We have a few skaters at church that Luke just loves and they are so good with him. He's already talking about taking his skateboard to church Wednesday night and skating with Stetson and Levi. I'll have to post pics of that!
On the adoption front - We really don't have any news. Our fingerprint cards were returned so we had to be refingerprinted. They have been mailed off five weeks as of yesterday so hopefully we hear something in the next couple weeks!
That's all for now!
