David's back from camp now. He had a great time, barely missed us, and came back pretty exhausted. He hasn't told many stories yet, but I'm sure they'll be coming. His leader made up little paper-plate plaques for each of the kids, showing how they stood out. David's said, "Most Outstanding in Everything". That sure made me proud of my little guy. :)
He had to miss a soccer tournament while he was at camp, but the first game got rained out, so he gets to play in the rescheduled game tonight at 9:00. He's glad he doesn't have to miss out on it, after all. He only missed one of the games instead of two, and then they play again tomorrow afternoon. After the tournament this weekend, another soccer season officially comes to an end. Next season, we'll have two boys in soccer, so we'll get to see how other families juggle between their kids activities. I can't even tell you how much I look forward to watching the other one play and to having him by my side watching David play.
We hoped to have our airline tickets by the end of the week, but our own attorney let me know this afternoon that they're still waiting on our documents at the U.S. Embassy in Colombia. Without those documents, the final steps cannot proceed nor can we be given an appointment date. He said he'd meet with our agency's lawyer on Monday to see how things have progressed, plus our agency said they'd be on top of it all on Monday, as well. Sigh.....
