One thing we've done through this entire process is..... let the process take its course. We haven't researched or dug in to every single fine tune detail of the stages of processing..... with my personality, if I did this.... I'd be crazy by now. So we are kept current on the BIG steps.... and leave all the fine details to the powers that be :)
On another note - we went to Holiday World yesterday in about 100 degree weather! We are crazy! It was packed, but Joshua LOVED every minute. Brad and Joshua were two peas in a pod riding rides, going down water slides.... lovin' it all despite the heat. Some other friends were there with us....so it was a great time, although coordinating alot of people in this type of outing can have its challenges :) On the topic of heat... we are certainly getting prepared for that India heat these days.....it's just downright HOT here in KY. Praying for relief around the world..... a friend of a friend is in India right now and said it was 120 degrees..... yikes! Along with those passport prayers how about toss in a prayer for God's perfect timing for our travel to be accompanied by a nice "cool front"...here and in India :) ??
Holiday World Pics belows -- take note -- it's our THIRD time there -- I think someone is counting :)
Joshua and his friend Trey in the canoe - Trey is in front :) - These boys love each other --- and even kindof look alike :)
Joshua driving antique car - we have to do all the things we did the first time when here -- and the second time too :) -- this is Third time at Holiday World -- can you tell??
Raging Rapids is fun -- even mommy did this one. It's a ride that simulates like white water rapids. Yep - I got drenched! But with the heat, who cares?? Oh course Joshua is still posing with his "third" time at Holiday World.... is this kid 6 or 16?
Here is the entrance point..... yep those are stairs and if you have GREAT eyes...you might be able to see a tall man in a white shirt and a little boy looking over the stair railing right below the purple flag about mid way in the line. Brad is facing the other way and the purple flag pole is a line RIGHT to him.... Joshua is along the rail looking out.
