1st Day of School

Today was the first day of school so, of course, I had to take my yearly pictures at the end of our sidewalk. There's a little bug going through our home so Benji was sick earlier this week but feeling better now, Jacob woke up with a headache, Clara has a sore throat, Debra is begging for medicine even thought there's nothing wrong with her, and Chris felt just plain lousy this morning. Everybody was well enough to go to school.......except for poor Chris. He got dressed, took our annual pictures, got in the van........and then lost steam and thought he was going to throw up. By the time we got to school all he wanted to do was lay down in the back seat. He ended up sleeping from 10:00 until 2:00. Now he's jumping around and I'm sure will be raring to go to school tomorrow.

Here are the grades for this year:
Jacob - 5th
Clara - 4th
Chris - 2nd
Benji - 2nd
Debra - Preschool

Here's the crew from last year.

They look so little and cute here!!!! Chris and Benji were in preschool.

Christine, you have a beautiful family and such an inspiration! Adoption continues to be the greatest gift in our family, for it brought us our little girl. As our child gets older, I know she will be asking about her adoption story, but I don't know how to tell her she was let on the streets and found by the police. After doing some extensive research, I have found on good advice on learning to tell my daughter the truth when the time is right. I definitely recommend taking a look at this site and hope you find some valuable information as well.
