Sarah Wright writes in her journal upon rising for the start of her day.

Thursday, May 1, 2008, 7:09 a.m., D.S.T., Nashville, TN~

Dear Journal~

Sarah Wright here.  Just woke up not even fifteen minutes ago; just took care of the baby, waiting for the others to wake up.  Wayne is in the shower; expect him to be finishing up momentarily.

I have been doing well:  no suprises with Wayne's health; he's been doing fantastic since his surgery back in December.  No, he can't play sports (excepting for golf), but he really never could. LOL

Besides, golf, Wayne loves to bowl.  He is very good; he's on a bowling league for adults with disabilities.  He and his gang bowl once a week, on Friday nights, for a few hours.  They always have a great time!

The children are all growing like weeds.  Our oldest daughter is nearly as tall as me now; she's turning into a beautiful young lady.  Her sister is going to be tall too; she's extremely long-limbed.

Talked to Louisiana Sandusky the other day; the family is getting ready to head for Louisiana next weekend.  They're all excited about it.  They're going to some kind of crawfish festival, I think. 

Wish I could get away; no, as usual, we're stuck at home (or at the hospital, it seems!).  I haven't had a decent vacation in I don't know how long!

A trip to Disneyworld would be nice...LOL

Or better yet, a cruise on the Carribean Sea.  Yeah, that's more like it!! :)

I doubt we'll be going anywhere anytime soon.  With the ever rising cost of gas/food, it looks like we're staying put.  I honestly don't know how the Sanduskys can afford to go anywhere with that mob!!  LOL

I wonder if they won the lottery?? If so, I hope she floats me a loan!! LOL

The weather here is fantastic:  bright, warm sunshine, vivid, blue skies, gently blowing breezes from the north, northeast.  Couldn't ask for better weather!  The kids have been outside on the weekends, and both Wayne and I have been able to accomplish some of the yardwork.  Our yard is looking good; I'm mighty proud of our efforts! :)

Even if we don't go anywhere this summer for a vacation, we still can have a good time here.  I'll just have to think of creative things to keep our kids from getting bored, or find ways to entertain our neighbors.  Plus we can always go to church.  (And we do, every week!)

I met a wonderful lady there last Sunday, Kendra Kent, and her big brood.  She's in a wheelchair (spina bifida; she was born with it), and she adopted all these children, all disabled.  She now has over 30 children in her care. 

She reminds me a lot of Louisiana and Bill Sandusky in that regard (excepting Louie and Bill's bunch is much bigger).  I am looking forward to getting to know Kendra better, as well as her family and her husband, Michael.

Remember a while back when I said that we were thinking of adopting another child?  Well, we heard from the adoption agency; they have a child for us, a little boy from Mexico.  The child is two years old, just a little older than our youngest, Rheese, and his name is Xaviar.  He's a little cutie pie.  He'll be joining our family within a period of six months, which means getting the boys' room ready for a new arrival.

We've told the children about the impending arrival of their new brother, and all but the youngest are for it.  Rheese could care less; he's still a baby; he doesn't really know what's going on.

We'll soon have three boys and two girls, four adopted.  We have a boy from Africa (Mwugu) and two girls from China (Emma and Brooklyn), in addition to our first "birth" child, Rheese; we will soon add little Xaviar Pablo from Mexico to our happy little family!

I wonder if little Xaviar speaks any English.  If not, then I'm in trouble; I flunked Spanish in high school! LOL  Never was any good at foreign languages!! LOL

Well, the kids are waking up, so I must tend to them before they head out the door for school:  get their school uniforms ready, get their breakfasts, make sure they wash themselves, brush their teeth--you know, the typical morning routine. I also must make sure Mwugu takes his morning round of meds.  He forgot to yesterday.

Will write in here again soon; take care, and may God bless you!  This is Sarah saying so long for now!

~Love, your friend, Sarah. :D
