Melanie and Faith went to St. George for a couple of weeks to visit Grammie and Great-Gran. We had so much fun! Grammie and Melanie went repelling at Red Cliffs and Faith definitely enjoyed the swimming! Grandpa is almost finished with Melanie's guitar and Melanie even tried her hand at luthiering (is that a word?). She is making a Mongolian Horse Head fiddle - Igil. It looks horrible! Grandpa is MUCH better. We also picked up 3 little finches while there. They are so cute! We love their singing.
Our application was accepted and we are on to the next step on our adoption journey! Thank you to everyone who supplied us with good resources and references. It has been VERY helpful! Don't forget to learn this week's phrase in Amharic!
