Another super awesome thing that happened this week is that we completely sold out of one style of our adoption fundraiser tees! We went from selling only a couple to some friends, to selling out in one weekend! God is so good! So now we are taking back orders for that style! We still have plenty of the LOVE Africa tees if ya want one! http://burleighfamilyadoption.bigcartel.com/ To be honest, We have almost enough in secured debt to fund our two adoptions, but the less debt we incur, the more financially stable we will be and we are doubling our children so our hope and prayer is that we can raise enough funds through selling our stuff and fundraising to pay for a large portion of our adoption. With one income while I finish school, and two littles on the way, it's a bit daunting to be adding so much to our debt load, but we have seen some miraculous fundraising happen for other adopting families so we are just keeping the faith that we will have some successful fundraisers also. And if not, well we are perfectly happy to go into debt for this reason! We wouldn't do if for a boat, a vacation, or shiny new car, but for our babies? You betcha! I'd mortgage my left arm for any one of my kids!
So, after a few bumps and bruises, things are looking well. We also got to spend some much needed quality time with the kids and each other this weekend as we trekked from Little Rock, back home, then on to Tulsa, and back home again all in 3 days! Here are a few highlights.
We got to spend a little time at the Discovery Museum in Little Rock...
We ate at a sweet little restaurant where your food is delivered via model trains...
See the rails and platforms overhead? The trains come around to your table and release their cargo boxes (containing your food) onto the platform. Then the platform lowers itself to your table to deliver the goods! Fun! The kids loved it! A must see if you are in Little Rock with kids.
Then on Saturday night, Richard and I headed to Tulsa to see Jim Gaffigan live, (Hot Pockets!) and we got to stay at this swanky little historic hotel that has been recently revived to it's former glory. Right up our alley. We love old stuff.
All in all, it was a great (although exhausting) weekend! Next up, Easter! So tired... I think we will go out to eat.
