This morning we found out that the magistrate has approved Mya's adoption, and now we're just waiting for papers from Pretoria saying that Mya is officially a Hawkins. Once we receive those papers, we will have to go to Home Affairs to have her first name changed to Mya.

We also started our new school year today! It wasn't as good of a day as I had hoped, but it wasn't bad, either. We got through Math, Spelling and KONOS, and called it a day after a few interruptions stretched it out longer than I had intended. We are busily doing a week of Cowboys to finish up our study on Obedience from last year before we jump into a study on Orderliness. I am looking forward to the change, and to diving into our Apologia Science book on Astronomy.

We went out to Spur tonight for dinner with the Pages & Embrees to celebrate this step in Mya's adoption. It is such a relief to know that all the running and trying to figure out what papers we need is over!

I have been so tired the last week or two! I am trying to start going to bed no later than 10, so that I can get up in the morning and have time for my quiet time and a bit of exercise, along with my morning routine of housework before we start school. These are my first attempts at self-discipline, throwing off weights and bringing my body into subject, though I'm sure that this is just the beginning of a life-long journey!
