Soccer Camp and More

We haven't had a whole bunch to blog about this week. Caden did soccer camp and Preston got to play each day on the playground for 2 hours (while I sat and roasted in the hot sun.)

We heard today there may be a slow down (can it get any slower?) in Haiti regarding the adoption process. All I know is it has been almost 3 months since our paperwork arrived in Haiti, and we haven't heard a word about our file. I am HOPING no news is good news, but I have a feeling that may not be the case. It is so frustrating having fun at the pool, park or beach this summer and thinking that Avery is sitting in her crib all day...
We're getting all geared up for our final summer vacation to the beach next week. Then it's back to reality for me! School starts back up in less than a month....where did the summer go!?

Back to reality

We arrived home from vacation last night around 11pm. We stopped a million times, so the 10 1/2 hour ride quickly became a 13 hour trip. After 11 hours in the car, the boys finally took a nap.

We went to Poppy and Granny's camp on Lorton Lake and the boys loved it there. They caught frogs, toad, turtles, minnows, sunfish and said they wanted to stay all summer. We also took a day trip to Smith Falls and
Westport, Canada (site has music). The boys got to experience going through customs for the first time, which seemed to make Caden a little nervous!

We also visited
Heid's , Onondaga Park and of course, we loaded the van up with good stuff from Wegman's! We hear they are eventually opening a store in NC....anyone know where??? We are dying to know!

All together it was an uneventful and fun trip! The weather was gorgeous and we only had one cloudy day (which must be a record for upstate NY!)

Unfortunately, vacation did come to an end and now I get the fun job of unpacking, which I am procrastinating by blogging...
