Keeping Up with the Ponslers...

We have been really busy lately! We are actually looking forward to some downtime in the near future. This past weekend we had the opportunity to attend poll day for the Indianapolis 500.

We met up with my college roommate and good friend, Libby. It was great to see her and catch up on what has been going on with her the past few months. She just finished tax season and it sounds like she is enjoying her free time.

Manchester went in with several other Indiana colleges and had a tent for the Alumni on Saturday. Although we didn’t really know many people that attended the event, it was a lot of fun. We were able to talk to the director of alumni relations, Gary Montel aka Clyde and his wife Dee. It has been a long time since we talked with them, so it was fun to catch up. In the morning, we were able to go into the garage area and get several autographs of some of the drivers. The weather was beautiful on Saturday. We had a great time!

The typical picture of us.

We stood on the bleachers and watched the cars go down Gasoline Alley. It was entertaining watching the people in the yellow shirts.

A pimped out golf cart. I want one!

In the afternoon, we left Indy and headed for Michigan to visit my brother and his family. We really enjoy hanging out with them. On Saturday night, we made our own sushi. It was tasty! On Sunday, our nephew Eli was baptized at church. It was a neat moment and I am excited to watch him grow throughout the years. He is such a good baby. We also had a lot of fun with our nephews, Nathan and Aaron. Both of the boys are developing their personalities and it is fun to hang out with them.

On the adoption front, our agency has approved our home study! We are excited to continue forward; however, we are realizing that our timing has been aggressive. I think when we are in charge of things, we tend to get it done real fast; however, when it is in the hands of others, we simply have to wait. Oh the waiting begins. We have been guessing the timing based on the average, but now we are leaving it up to God. His timing is always perfect. He has a plan and all we have to do is wait. So for now, we really don’t know when things will happen, but when they do, it will be perfect!

“For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
