File, File, and refile

Okay, so some snipets from this weekend:

*Our I171h refile, will be in the mail tomorrow. I'm getting pretty good at paperwork. We requested the "one time, no charge extension of our I171h." I'll let you know if they let us do it.
*This should be the last of our paperwork til we know of our little man(I hope I don't eat those words)

*Not only am I not 19, I am not 10. Went to a birthday party at pump it up.....took my nephew....and well.....I'm not a stand on the sidelines kinda Aunt. My back is ailing again. But I smoked him on the obstacle course(yes I am bragging about beating a 10 year old!!)

*Jon on the other hand is 10. He scared the doodles outa my nephew on the gocarts. My nephew told me that Jon was running kids off the track and making them spin out!!

*Much to my sisters dismay...I have introduced the nephew to the Starbucks frappaccino

*Camp is set for hunting season.(I supervised)
*Let's all say a collective prayer that Jon doesn't get life flighted out of the woods this year!!

Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Woohoo to kicking some 10 year old nephew butt ;0)

Yes, there are no hunting mishaps allowed this year...or any year.

I guess we were still so new to the Taiwan adoption groups last year that I missed the "accident". I just read your Life Flighted post and OH MY GOODNESS! You are exercising your faith by letting him go, aren't you? I do hope you get the free extension- it would be good news for us all.

Men are so funny. All of the men in our family are going hunting this year. I'm hoping they all come back safe and sound too!

Praying for a safe hunting trip this yr.

I would take my victories where I can get them....if you beat a 10 yr old, you beat a 10 yr old. TEE HEE

I had know idea Jon was flown to a Shock Trauma! Him & Matt have something in common.

I know you must be the paperwork master & sick of paperwork by now so I am glad your doing constructive things like smoking 10yr olds & giving them Frappaccino's. LOL! It's good for ya:)
