Happy Birthday to our Lily-Bug. What a delight is to watch this sweet girl grow up. She giggles more than any child I know but could take down a giant in a fight. She is sweet and she is tough. And I adore both qualities in her. She loves all things pink and pretty. She is our princess. Happy Birthday Sweet Girl. We love you.
The end of 2nd grade has come for our girls. A little early! It's time to go to China and adopt Joy and begin our summer bonding as a family of 7. The girls worked so hard in their studies this year and I am so proud of their efforts.
We like to find a small way to celebrate each year. Dale brought home cupcakes and M&M's to celebrate. The kids decided to decorate their cupcakes with the candies.
We like to give our "awards" as well, even if just verbally:
Autumn was awarded "The bigestest overcomer" this year for her efforts in reading and writing. Kya was awarded "the most math work completed" this year for finishing 1 1/2 years of math in 1 school year. Lily & Aaron will officially be in Kindergarten in the next school year. And, I will suddenly have 5 school-aged children!
We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands." - Kristi Larson
