Although we'll be exhausted, Adam and I will walk away from the week feeling rejuvenated, grateful, and full of perspective.
The campers are truly an inspiration, and we all have so much to learn from them! Adam went to Camp Periwinkle as a camper when he was undergoing treatment. He definitely represents a light at the end of the tunnel for all of the kids at camp. I love to watch him interact with his campers, it's a tiny glimpse into what an amazing father he'll be!
To learn a bit more about camp, watch the video below...
**If you look closely you can see Adam dressed as Tony Romo at the 0:16 second mark**
Also, I started my training schedule this week for our race in October. If you're interested in a program that has runs planned 3 days a week, check out my plan below! I'm excited to have a running plan that has 3 days of running per week rather than 4. Once school starts it will be difficult to keep up with training. Also, did I mention that the Chosen Marathon for adoption has a kids fun run?!? It's a 1/3 mile run for kids 11 and under! It's a neat way to get the whole family involved!
Adam has been waking up three mornings a week just before five in the morning to go on his training runs. His commitment is such an inspiration. Every step forward is one step closer to our dream of becoming parents.
We turned in all of our paperwork for our home study. The process will take around two months to complete. This is discouraging because our original goal was to have the home study done before school starts, but I know these things take time. Plus, we're hoping to fly to Jamaica and turn in our dossier, so having more time to plan/prepare for that will most likely be a good thing.
Continue to pray for us as we move forward in this process. Also, pray for our week at camp and all of our sweet campers!
