Thursday - The Construction Zone




We got our news today, and it wasn't what we wanted to hear. Our court date is not until next Friday, so we will be here another whole week plus. Please pray for strength to get through this next week. We didn't have to leave the hotel, but were moved to the smallest room, which is REALLY small, and it is in the construction zone. They are remodeling almost every room on this floor, so there are workers everywhere, drills buzzing, and it smells of drywall mud. OK, so I was wrong about this hotel being brand new. Anyway, we will have to be here 2 nights. I'm not sure we are going to be able to withstand 8 nights in this tiny room, so we may move again after the 2. Also, Halle is still in the hospital, and still no word when she will be out. The girls really need to go home. We had a 3 hour dinner with the Matthews tonight, which was nice. We weren't in any hurry to come back to the room.

I'm sorry to hear that things are taking so long and that you're stuck in a little room. I definitely will NOT pray for patience...as I don't want God to give you any more chances to practice patience :-) I'm praying that things will move quickly and without any hiccups and that Halle will be out of the hospital very soon!

Hi My name is Aimee Garrett, we have been following your blog for the past couple days. We are adopting 15 year old Anya from the same orphange as the Hickman's got Koyla. We know the Matthews too and is noce to hear about them and see them as they have not been bloging, Tell Dan & Joyce we say Hi, and we are still praying for them and the two Nastiya's. I just wanted to let you know that there are many people out her in Colorado reading your blog and parying for your Halle too, hope she is better soon.
Love,
Aimee

Happy Friday.. well at least in the US. We made it through the first 1/2 week of school. I talked to Linda Pearson about Halle and let Mrs. Krafft know as well of the potential change to 4th grade. There is room in either so no worries there. I saw Holly last night at the volleyball game and there were one or two tears but she seems to be holding up. She said that her and Lauren were determined to be HAPPY and she said some funny things happened to keep the mood light when they dropped the boys off at college. I am sure you have talked to Nick, but just wanted to share that.. I am so excited for Nick and just to see where God is going to take him. Halle remains in our prayers as do you guys.. I am so glad you have another family to connect with there. I am sure that makes the waiting a "little" less tiresome :) love you guys and can't wait to see you home soon!
OH and how exciting WE BEAT EAST NOBLE!!!!
