It's official: I've become a lazy blogger. I have no excuses. Life has been exciting and full of so much blog-worthy material. So, to make up for my lack of blogging lately, I'm going to give you one big exciting update of some of the crazy wonderful things that have been happening in my little corner of the world.

*I have back to school jitters! It's been 8 1/2 years since I graduated with my bachelors degree, and I am going back to school! If all goes according to schedule I will graduate in 25 months with a masters degree in special education, as well as my credential for moderate-severe disabilities. I am a little nervous about getting back in the groove of working full-time and going to school full-time (and the money thing, but we won't dwell on that), but God has really been growing my dreams of combining my passion for impoverished nations and children with special needs, and I can't wait to see what that looks like.

* Bobbiann had her baby! Welcome Aleah Grace, born on August 4, 2012. Both Mom and Baby are healthy and happy!

*Somewhere in the world two sweet sisters have met their Momma and Daddy. There have been lots of hugs, laughs, fun, and maybe even a few meltdowns to remind us all that kids are kids. Needless to say, beautiful things are happening. I will share photos and more details with you as soon as the process is complete and all are home safe. (Please don't use names or details in the comments section, just for protection of the process.)

*Last but not least, I am welcoming a new member to my family. I will be sponsoring Tadiwa through Beautiful Feet Global Outreach. She lives in Zimbabwe and stole my heart the moment I saw her. The good news is this will be a group sponsorship, so if you find that Tadiwa has burrowed her way into your heart as she has mine, I will soon be sharing more details in how you can join me in sponsoring her. For now I will leave you with a photo of her so you can soak up some of her joy.

Oh my goodness, Tadiwa is precious. She is beautiful!
This post is filled with so many good things! I love it!

I will be thinking of you as you go back to school! I know that if I am able to in the future, I would like to go back. At least for a two year degree or something, just to keep learning. I want to never stop learning.

I can relate to less blogging in the summer. That's great that you're going back to school. May God bless you in your many endeavors!
