weeknight update

Tonight at small group we decided to have a going away party for one of our members. She's spending the summer working at her very favorite summer camp and I'm really going to miss her. Anyway. I made it home from the grocery store and was putting groceries away and making cupcakes and preparing cookies when the phone rang. It was Julie from AGCI. I figured it was just another update. Julie calls me a lot. Well, actually, we play a lot of phone tag. I digress. She said she had good news for me. She told me the news and this was my reply, "Ok, great. Well, thanks for calling. Have a good night." 

And then it really hit me. 

I called Justin immediately and said, "He's ours!" To which he replied (very confused), "what?" and I said, "You heard me, he's ours!!!" and then we were both excited and happy and discussed who to call next. I told my friends this evening that I must have been in shock or too focused on those silly cupcakes because none of it made sense at first. 

And now, I am sitting on the couch thinking about how crazy it is that we have a son. We really have a son now. It's legal and everything! One day really soon we're going to have a little person here in our house living with us and making us happier than we'd ever imagined. I just can't believe it.  We don't have our travel dates yet, but hopefully we'll hear that really soon. 

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me!
