Another Adoption ????????

I made blank copies of all our paperwork that we needed to take to the Embassy, just in case we had made a mistake and needed to redo something. When we got home the blank copies were still with our paperwork so when I unpacked I put it in Alex's pile of scrap paper for drawing, writing etc...Thinking of course that he would use the blank side. Fast forward to tonight shortly before dinner.. I found Alex on the floor of the dinning room very carefully writing P A N D A in the fist blank of one of the forms. When I told him it was time for dinner he says ...." I have lots of papers to fill out. Panda wants to go to Australia to adopt a dingo. " I stood for a second and then gave him a big hug. I told him that he could finish his adoption paperwork after dinner and he says " Good there is so much to be done just so much to be done. " He was home from school the 4 days before we left for Guatemala because of sickness and snow days so he was witness to my "so much to be done" frenzy.
