Family visit...

After we adopt we're really looking forward to having our family and friends from out of town come and visit us to meet our new baby. It's so comforting to know that we have so many great family members and friends that will be around to support us and our baby. If the saying "it takes a village to raise child" is true - then we a REALLY well prepared to adopt!

Thursday night my cousin Nick and his friend Sarah were driving through Atlanta on their way to Florida. Luckily, it worked out that they were able to spend the night with us and have breakfast with us in the morning before they got back on the road (they had already driven 13 hours!!!). Nick was helping Sarah move all of her stuff down to her new home in Orlando from Nebraska.

Both Nick and Sarah are recent graduates of the University of Nebraska. Sarah was accepted into a very competitive graduate program in Orlando. Out of the the thousands of people who applied she was one of only 30 people chosen! Wow. Nick is basically a genius, and could get a job anywhere. I seriously think that his business card should read "Professional Genius." He's also a pretty amazing athlete, so after graduation he was asked to be an assistant coach at the University. They have great program at Nebraska so this will be a great resume builder for him. I have no doubt that in a few years he'll be the head coach for an amazing team. So, yes folks we have yet another teacher in the family. That makes 5 of us with either coaching / teaching degrees. Nick will be fantastic at this, as he is one of the nicest, most patient, mature people I have had the pleasure of watching grow up.

As I mentioned before Nick and Sarah are / have been very active with college sports. You can check out Nicks YOUTUBE video on the post below this of him and some of his teammates pole vaulting!!!!

It was great to see them both, and am so proud of Nick and Ryan for the guys they have grown up to be. With great family and friends, like Nick and Ryan around, our future child is sure to be succesful in whatever she/he chooses to do.
