One More Step


Adoption is made up of a bunch of steps - some tiny some huge - all worth celebrating. Today we had our paperwork submitted to the US Embassy in Ethiopia. WOO HOO!

We were gonna celebrate by teaching Meron a new dance - The Humpty Hump. But she wasn't feeling it. Something about "..Limp to the side like ya leg was broken.." just didn't go over well with her...

So we decided to dance like crazy to anything and everything. I skipped my run and hung out with my girls instead. And yeah - I probably didn't burn half as many calories but I bet I had 5x the fun!


We danced and jumped as high as we could...


We put on some crazy wigs in preparation for...


Whipping our hair back and forth!

Afterwards - I was sprawled out on Meron's bed with her under the fan trying to cool off (we worked up a sweat during our dance routines). She rolled over and looked at me and said:

"Daddy... I love having fun with you."
Boom. Makes every single thing worth it.

Dancing with my girls trumps running every single time.
