Getting close now

We've had a super busy weekend, as I try to pack in as much stuff before our trip as humanely possible. Friday night we had a bunch of friends (and their children and dogs!) over for dinner and a bonfire. A sort of "last hooray" before we travel and grow our family. The weather has been unseasonably warm, so David cooked steaks on the grill and we had a big bonfire in our back yard and made S'mores. The 9 dogs and dozen kids ran and played on the new athletic field that was rolled on Wednesday, and it was great fun for all. Saturday, we spent the day at taekwondo lessons. One of our last tournaments before the Jr. Olympics (we'll miss one when we are in China) is in New York City (6 hour drive, each way) on March 31st.  Although I know it's crazy, we are jamming that event in our schedule just before we leave for China. I've also been spending unbelievable hours managing our new raffle. In a flash of  what I hope is brilliance, and not stupidity, I decided to sell $25 raffle tickets--with the prize being a week at our cottage on Conesus Lake!! The drawing is April 1st, so if you want to participate, quickly make a donation on our fundraising page
