Update just for Dawn

It has been a long time since I updated the blog, so I am updating it for my loyal readers....or maybe reader. ha!

We are still having a great time with Apple. She is over halfway through her stay here in America and is doing well. She achieved a 4.0 GPA in the first semester and made the high honor roll at Olympia High School. She has a little harder classes this semester but is still holding the 4.0 as of now.

We had a Super Bowl party last weekend with a few friends and family. Everyone was excited to wear their 3d glasses for the movie preview.

We are all excited that we are in the last month of so of Winter. I don't think I've ever been so tired of snow as I have been this year. The five snow days we had off of school were nice, but I'm over it now and am ready for spring!!! Yesterday the weather was wonderful and got up into the 60s, which we haven't seen for months. We have barely seen the 30s for the past few months! We drove over to Champaign for the day to meet friends for lunch and do a little shopping. The geese were aware that it was warmer too as there were hundreds of them flying North!

On the adoption front, we are making slow but steady progress in the Ethiopia wait. We started out on July 15, 2008 in the 92nd position on the waiting list. We have moved up to number 58. It's good to see progress at least. We are still hopeful to have a referral by sometime this summer or fall.

I'm a Burt Clan blog reader. Although sometimes I only get out to read it every 2-3 weeks, but I check in to see what's happening.
