Day 72. Mar 13. So proud of this kid!! He has spent months prepping for the National Latin Exam, and finally took the test this morning! He loves his Latin class, but was relieved to have the test behind him. As soon as he got home, he headed straight for the basketball court. This is his happy place :)
Day 73. Mar 14. We are so lucky that our niece and her little family came to visit us!! On their last night here, we took them to our favorite gelato shop :) Wish they could have stayed longer, but we loved every second we with them!
Day 74. Mar 15. Everywhere you turn, the orange trees are blooming in all their glory. We live right in the middle of the orange groves, and I wish I could describe how amazing it is this time of year. Each night we leave our bedroom window open, and awake to the most unbelievable fragrance. If heaven had a smell, this would be it!
Day 75. Mar 16. Guess what arrived in the mail?? Today we received our papers from the court stating that we are officially certified to adopt!!! Who-Hoo!! Can't tell you how much hollering and happy screaming went on here :)
Day 76. Mar 17. Happy St. Patrick's day! The kiddos playing legos this morning before our traditional green breakfast :)
Day 77. Mar 18. On one of our awesome house hunting adventures this week, we came upon the most beautiful grapefruit tree. Lily got to pick this one and bring it home. For a brief second we considered buying the house just for that tree! #freshgrapefruiteverymorning #wouldbeawesome
