Summer…my favorite time of year!  I love everything that comes with it…ball games, swimming, watermelon, HOMEMADE ICE CREAM, festivals, etc…  I just love spending time outdoors and summer is very accomodating to that:)  June is always a busy month for us because Troy’s birthday is June 4, Silas’ Gotcha Day is June 15, and we always have Father’s Day to celebrate somewhere in there too!  So far this summer we have been to a Nashville Sounds game, spent lots of time tending to our garden, attended two airport homecomings for friends that brought home their children from Rwanda and South Korea, attended a church social,and a playdate with a lot of other Ethiopian adoptive families.  We are certainly blessed!  I have included a few pictures from the playdate we had with the adoptive families yesterday.  It was at Silas’ buddy, Lucy Lane’s house, and it was partly in honor of Silas and Lucy Lane being forever home 2 years tomorrow.  Kristi, Lucy Lane’s mom was so kind to host everyone.  Silas loves going over there because they have the best toys!  Hopefully, next summer our daughter will be in some of these pictures:)

Silas and Lucy.  Don’t they look thrilled about having their picture taken together?

Silas was in heaven with all the ride on toys he could sit on and pretend to drive:)

Overall, it was amazing to see all these beautiful children now forever home and thriving!  Here’s to a great rest of the summer!
