This was our Spring Break week. Although we did have some fun, it was more about being productive this week. On Monday we completed Sam's readoption. It is a God story, I will blog about soon, that we were able to get a court date so quickly. We got to the court around 7:40 for our 8:00 court time and were able to go in early and have all of our paperwork signed and certified by 8:06. It was an awesome morning. The rest of the week was about getting passports for the youngest three K kids, a new SS card for Sam with a name change (in Ethiopia he was given the name Yacob Matthew Koceich because because they automatically give the kids the adoptive father's first name as a middle name). We changed his name to Samuel Yacob Koceich officially, and his status was changed from permanent resident to US citizen. That process wasn't quite as smooth as the court process, but we got it done. We also sent off for a Texas birth certificate for sweet Sam so he is completely official now! :)
We did manage a trip to the park with my sweet quad girls and their kiddos. And Grandma and Grandpa took the kids to Lego Land. I'm sure that was the highlight of their week!
I'm grateful for go with the flow kids. I didn't hear a single complaint that Spring Break wasn't filled with fun, on-the-go experiences this year. They have grateful hearts for the things we have and get to do and it is so humbling for me to be their mom!
