We have been so busy with things. I just haven't had time to post. The Mermaid had her 3rd surgery in March on her hand. (once in China, two times here) It went very well. She is a trooper! The doctor says we will look at it when she is a teenager...time for healing and growing. This is the first time in her life that she has had full access to all her fingers and she is learning to use that hand now that she has complete motion in it. She finished Head Start and over the summer attended VPK to get ready for Kindergarten. She has lost her ESOL status...because her English is "too good". However, she has gaps in her language. So, we are concentrating on filling those gaps this upcoming school year. Kindergarten started in August. She is academically doing very well. Her behavior...well? Talks too much, can't keep her hands to herself, etc. We're working on it!

Today was Read Across America Day. Since we are a teaching family, it is an important day to emphasize with The Pirate and The Mermaid. We dressed for the occasion by wearing our Thing 1 and 2 shirts (thanks Aunt Kerri!) and our Cat and The Hat "hats". Both kids had green eggs and ham for breakfast...YUCK!!! How I LOVE eggs! Several readers came to read to their classes including Uncle Bryon!

Today was opening day at the field. It was cold and then it rained! The Pirate was introduced and took the Little League pledge. We then went and bought the Pirate this really "hard" piece of equipment...he is a little embarrassed! But you got to protect them....

It has been a very busy week. We had training , went to Disney World and school. The pirate had practice this morning. It turned into a practice game. He was second up and wacked the ball to the second baseman and just STOOD THERE! I think he was in shock!!! He got thrown out...but Mommy was proud anyway. If it had been a real game...it was 4-2 Braves in the end. Not too shabby...

We were officially logged into China today in 2007. It was three years ago and would you believe, we would still be waiting! So many babies and children waiting for forever families...
