7 Quick Takes Friday

--- 1 ---

We are still fundraising to bring our boy home, but I realized that I would love to do something special for the little ones we have to leave behind. Many orphanages allow one diaper per day, and I know for a fact that this orphanage has to reuse disposable diapers. So, I will take whatever donated money this campaign brings in and buy diapers and other necessities while in country to take to the little loves.


Dang, that widget just messed up my formatting!


Because of summer fares for flights to "Colton's" country, we underestimated our need by a couple thousand. I am not sweating about it, yet, but I would definitely like to get close to goal. We are getting very close to submitting our paperwork, and our travel dates will come pretty closely after that. 

$5 can make a huge difference if a bunch of people gave. And, that $5 would get you an entry into our Disney giveaway. We are about halfway to our giveaway goal. I can't wait to see who wins!

Plus, won't it be nice when I'm not fundraising anymore? I would actually have to find other things to write about. 


This came at a very appropriate time for me this week.


Now that sweet Dennis has a family coming for him, I'm going to get angry about this guy. Little boys aren't chosen as often as girls. But, I can't understand why a tiny little sweetie like this is still waiting.

He could be home before he's 1! He could receive early intervention therapy in your home for 2 years! He would be such a sweetums of a son!! 


I've been making lists and lists and lists for things I need to get for "Colton".. We have no boy things, so I'll have to work on that. I'm pretty sure I can get some steals at Carter's, since they run $6 sales during the summer. I've also been making packing lists for things I need to bring. I do plan on packing very, very lightly, but I want to make sure I'm covered as far as meds go because I do NOT travel well. Yes, you can all laugh at me now. I'm in trouble ;)


There is only 2 weeks left of preschool, and 1 month left of school for more oldest. WOW! I'm not sure how that happened, but I am shocked that summer is starting. I haven't planned anything, so I need to get these kids into some activities so we don't go nuts!

Happy weekend!!
