Goodbye Summer!

We had an awesome summer! But I am looking forward to the cooler weather of Fall. I have not posted pictures in a while, so here are some from our fantastic summer. I had some really good pictures of Sasha, but I can't post pictures of him on our blog until the adoption is final.

We went to Greenville's Children Museum and Brennan loved this water exhibit.

Ahhh....a lazy day with daddy.

We normally wait until after Labor Day to visit the beach. But, this year we went early so Sasha could go with us. Brennan didn't cry when he heard the ocean this year but he did NOT want the ocean to touch any part of his body. He loved the sand though!

Xan really enjoyed the ocean this year.

Adoption Update

We found out yesterday that the Ukrainian government will not be accepting any more dossiers (adoption paperwork)this year. That is a little disheartening, however, our dossier would not be ready until November anyway, so it does not set us back too far. Our dossier will be one of the first (if not the first) to be presented on January 1, 2010. Also, our agency's in country facilitator said that he was pretty confident that we will have a travel date in January or February since we are adopting an older child.
