Join us this year as we travel to Bulgaria to bring 3 children home to make our forever family complete. We look forward to what the future will hold for the dozen of us as a family. We are taking the road less travelled and it has many beautiful twists & turns along the way. Join us as we discover them together on this amazing journey to bring 3 children from an orphanage and make them forever part of the Boyd Bunch.

Young friendship is SO sweet!
As some of you know, Alyona met a young man at the Bulgarian Reunion. Those two became inseparable. What makes it better is their family and ours gets along rather well. Lots of similarities and kids mesh together. Well, since we left the reunion, Alyona and her friend have been talking almost daily. Starting to write letters. Imagine Alyona's surprise the other day when she received a package.
Alyona getting ready to open the package. He told her it was coming so that mailbox was checked at least 20 times that day.
Inside was a hat, a necklace w/ a turtle on it, candy and quite a few notes. Sweet.
And of course nosy sisters wondering what it all says. LOL. Seriously though, this young man is very thoughtful and sweet. He talks to all of us, not just Alyona. We're actually in the midst of planning a possible camping trip this fall to meet halfway between the states. I think these two may actually lose their minds if they see each other again in the fall. Too be so young again and so smitten by someone. Lovely. Just lovely.
Need to get the kids ready for VBS this evening. They have thoroughly enjoyed it this week. In addition, tomorrow we have some unexpected guests coming so we may want to clean up this house at some point today. So, lots going on this week and will fill in later in posts. Just getting stuff done, docs ready for schooling to start, etc. is taking up every once of time this week. The amount of paperwork for Bojan to be able to ride a wheelchair accessible bus is just ridiculous. Really is. But, has to be done. Blog has been a little slack this week b/c life has taken a turn for busy. You wouldn't think the lazy days of summer would get busy but they do. Logan had his ESL testing and I also talked to the EC specialists while there regarding Alyona, Alex and Logan going to middle school. Hopefully, they will pay attention this go around at JCPS systems. So far, so good. They are moving along with things and listening to what I say. Got to go. We're supposed to drive Max to Raleigh this evening but not sure we can time it in enough to pick up kids from VBS. We'll see. Much more to say, much more going on.
