Hottest day of the year. Nice day for a yard sale! With several donations from a few other families, we had a great yard sale to raise money for the adoption/Erin's Rwanda missions trip! A special shout out to the amazing Beaumont family who not only donated several big-ticket items for the yard sale, but also endured the scorching heat with us...even sold lemonade!

One of the coolest things about the yards sale was a Hispanic couple we met who bought a couple couches from us for $50 each. They found out we were doing the whole thing to raise money for adoption from Africa, and they were just SO excited for us and SO encouraging. We even exchanged phone numbers! They asked that we keep them posted on how things go, to let them know if we need any help, and they asked to call them when we get the boy so they can come meet him. They asked a lot of questions and told us that "everything has a purpose" and to "trust that God will provide." Very cool.

Here are a few pics from today!
