other things worth mentioning:
jack turns 5 next week. i might cry.
trev has two classes left until he is up for ordination. he's done awesome.
big boy beds are going well! yay!
major adoption fundraising in on hold for now. we don't know the exact direction we are ready to go yet, sort of waiting on things to clear up, so instead of fundraising without a clear picture, we'll just keep the money raised in the account it's in until we are a little more ready to dive in!
*note* this does not mean we aren't adopting.....this just means we aren't actively fundraising at the moment :)
