A very happy update

I took a bit of a blogging break once Matt returned home from Afghanistan. We were incredibly busy during that period of time and have since moved to North Carolina! We are very happy here so far and are enjoying exploring our new surroundings. We took the kids to the beach (first time for Addy and the first time that Colton remembers) a few weeks ago and they loved it. Natalie was especially thrilled with the whole experience. Our neighborhood here also provides lots of entertainment. There are many ponds (even one with paddleboats), nature trails, a playground, and a swimming pool all within our neighborhood, so it's been a lot of fun exploring our new stomping grounds.

Even more exciting than our move is that Easton was submitted for EP (emigration permit)!!!!! This is the piece of the puzzle that we have been waiting (not so patiently) for since we first saw his sweet face last October. The EP essentially reprensents him being given permission to leave the country. While there are still many steps to complete before he can come home, this one was the BIGGEST and most PRAYED FOR. With all that being said, we are very confident that he will be home sometime between September and November and I could not be more thrilled.

I am over the moon, crazy excited, so thankful to have the assurance that this beautiful boy is coming home to his forever family SOON.
