The call came yesterday, Sept. 22, 2005, to tell us that our daughter is ready to come home! We leave on Monday to go get her.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting...

We are still waiting for the call. With each passing day, our daughter is getting older and we are getting more anxious to get her home. I feel better this week about the wait - last week was horrible. I was sure we would hear last week and each passing day was pure agony. I guess the time waiting and not hearing has helped me to relax and know that the call will come, but only when God deems that it is time.

My "Studio" is pretty much all set up - this only means the structure is there. The materials I have are somewhat organized, but mostly they are just stuffed into drawers and piled on my shelves until I have some time to really spend some time organizing. My work table is pretty much continually piled high as I try to begin sorting through things. Then I find time to clean it off and complete a little project ( a page in my ab journal or starting to create Claire's birth announcement) but then it gets piled high with stuff again.

I am looking forward to getting the studio area organized so I can do some really fruitful working there, even if it is only for 10 minutes a day. Ok, off to do my real job - teaching.

End of Summer Has Come

Summer ends...
Supposedly summer has ended - but we are now in Indian Summer - the weather is hot and humid. I miss the cooler days of autumn. Some of the leaves on the trees are turning.

It looks like we'll be in Korea the last week of September to get our daughter. A nice time to be there I hear. I am looking forward to the travel and gathering up some great "objects" to use for altering. I have a travel journal and a glue stick ready to take along so I can make a page or two a day to record our experience. Off to the weekend - one of last to prepare for the coming of our daughter.
