Happy Spring Holidays
Sunday, April 08, 2007
I hope every one a nice passover and easter holiday. Special thanks to those who made those very nice comments about our yard, but I have to be honest and say that those were the shots we took for our dossier so I spent like two weeks trimming and cleaning up nearly every dead leaf I could find. In other words it doesn't exactly always look quite like that.

We also had some fantastic help in getting it done in the first place. We got this great designer who literally just asked us a bunch of questions about the look we wanted and how much time we like to spend gardening and she designed something that we just keep on marveling at (and is actually fairly easy to maintain). I'm of course very into saving money but there are just some times when you have to spend some cash and go with a pro.

I don't think there will be any news this week except for maybe the news that the State Department gets the letter done that all the agencies need. However, even if that does get done it's still my opinion that we're in for at least a month wait for accreditations.

    Stefanie also mentioned today about the letter that our State Dept. has to get out. Tell them to get on the ball! Maybe someone will work faster than you think and there will be a nice surprise.

    I hope you had a nice Easter, and the last one without a little bunny of your own.
    Love, Mother

    Sorry I haven't commented lately. Nothing to report here. Just trying not to think about this whole accrediation thing. Friends keep reminding me "savor this time"... so the quiet house, the long walks with the dog, non-hectic mealtimes, is what I am trying to enjoy. But what I really want is the chaos!!! :)
