I just talk to the Peaks via Skype, it was quite different talking and seeing them at the same time. They had a full day of touring as you can see. Justin was already alseep and Ricky and Sheri were right behind him. They looked happy but very tried, she said it had been a rainy day, but lots of things to see. Check out of blog for pictures. http:// http://www.journey2ourprincess.blogspot.com/

This morning was a bitter/sweet goodbye to my friends.
Kamren & Myself took them to the Airport @ 5:00am. The 1st leg of their journey.
They all did really well, Sheri was holding up well. I on the other hand did not do very well. It did not hit me until I said goodbye that, I have always had Sheri around or taking care of my children while I was out of town. We have always been only a phone call away. She has become a sister/daughter to me over the years, with LOTS of stuff under our bridge, both good and bad, but we have weathered the ups and downs pretty well. We have learn along with our other Dothan friends that sometimes in life when we don't have our "REAL BIO" Family to hang on to,we lean on the love ones God has given to us in our life journeys. I have not had to say goodbye to my parents like Sheri at such young ages, so my heart has always ached for her and I hope that I can fill what every gap their is in any way I can. We really don't know how much we will be able to talk once they get to China. I am so happy for the Peaks and can't wait to see Sophie!!! Just think! The next time we see the Peaks they will no longer be the Peaks of 4 but Peaks of 5. Yea!!!! A girl!!! Sophie will be every ones little Angel!!! I can't wait to see Justin & Josh with a little sister. Hang on Sophie your family is on the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

* Tropical Storm Fay forced us to stay in this weekend, so we made the best of it. Kyle's Tournament was cancelled in Atlanta and Kirk flew to CA, so we invited the twins and their brother Nathan to spend the night and day with us, I figured since Kirk was gone I would give Keith & Angie a break and some Adult time. We had movies, crafts and lots of food. As you can see we had a blast making Halloween treats. Kamren, Natalie & Nicole.

Last night as always I had gotten Kamren asleep upstairs in his bed and I was back down stairs in my bed. All is well? Around 4:30am I was awaken by a horrifying scream "MY BACK IS BROKEN"(Kam) then I heard another loud scream (Kirk) "what is it"? I am usually a very light sleeper and how Kirk was up and in the middle of the foyer floor before me, I don't know. When I reach the hall, Kam is on the floor screaming and Kirk is on top of him, both screaming. After everyone settle down, Kam had woke up scared and was coming down the stairs with two cats and his Indiana Jones Man, one of the cats got spooked and off balanced him causing him to fall down the stairs, after falling he gets up and trips over Kirk"s suitcase that is at the front door knocking him back against the stairs hitting his back. Kirk hears him falling and thinks he is a burglar and grabs him and both of them fall to the floor. It was quite a scare!!!! We all go back to bed and try to get a couple hours of sleep. Kamren is fine and we all are laughing now.
