And We're Back...

Yes, yes, it's been too long since my last post. This is a busy, happy time of year for our family, and I'm scrambling just to keep up. But we're enjoying every minute of this whole "Family of Six" thing!

Here are a few of the goings-on of our family since my last post:
  • Hannah's 10th Gotcha Day
  • Hannah's 11th Birthday
  • Al's and my 13th Wedding Anniversary
  • Rachel's 8th birthday
  • Daddy Daughter Dance
  • Kaneland Fine Arts Festival (Rachel and Abbie both had works on display)
  • Open House at school
  • Two lost teeth (Abbie and Rachel)
  • Art award for Rachel
  • Awana Awards Night for Rachel
  • Hannah's fourth grade recorder demonstration
  • Rachel's second grade Tea for Two
  • Rachel started speech therapy
  • David started speech therapy
  • David's Dedication at church
  • Mother's Day
  • A virus for Abbie and strep throat for Rachel and me
  • Attended a First Communion and a Baptism for two different China friends
  • Hannah finally cut her hair for Locks of Love
  • David's first haircut

Not to mention day-to-day living details, like food, laundry, and getting to a million places on time with all required gear and snacks. All washed down with gallons of coffee...

In the next couple of weeks we look forward to:
  • Abbie's Kindergarten Graduation
  • Portraits done of the girls
  • Get-together with David's China group
  • Mom's night with Hannah's China group moms
  • Abbie's Bible Sunday at church
  • Long overdue visits/play dates with good friends
  • The Last Day of School!

Many of these activities have included/will include haircuts and shopping for clothing, not to mention finding shoes for three pairs of size Wide feet!

I'm living my dream!

Stay tuned for photos...
