Home study and fundraising update!

Hello all!!

It has been a very busy month for the Nicely family.  We have celebrated three of our princesses birthdays this month!!  Mother's Day was in there of course and just this last week we hosted the bake/food sale at our local home school used curriculum sale.  Thank you Mrs. Burgess for allowing us the opportunity to run the booth this year!  Also, thank you to all of the wonderful people who donated treats for the sale.  We are very grateful for your support!

It was a huge success and we all had a great time doing it.  Everyone was so supportive of our adoption!  We want to send a special thank you out to the Murray Family who once again always go above and beyond in their efforts to help us.  Our Plainfield Chick-Fil-A donated some chicken sandwiches and chips for us to sell.  So, along with hot dogs we had a pretty good menu.  Here is another shot of the awesome treat selection we had:


We had a blast!!

That same morning just as we were about to leave to get set up, Kim's phone rang and it was our social worker calling to set up our first home study visit!!  Woo Hoo, that's one step closer to the finish line!  We are very eager to start our lives with these children and our new expanded family.  We know that God is in charge and we just need to pray, relax and let go.

We are also getting ready for our next big fundraiser which is a huge garage sale on June 8th.  Folks from the curriculum sale donated some of their things so we could sell them at the garage sale.  Our garage is overflowing with books!!  Our summer is full with fun events and in between we will continue to ready the house for all of our new additions ;)

Until next time......
