We have such a busy week this week!! My friend Lori and I committed to planning VBS, and then we decided to adopt! Who would have thought the process would have taken 7 weeks from HSTK to get her!! Well it did…so directing VBS with Mia has added a little challenge…but with a challenge this cute, it doesnt matter!!:)
This morning Mia had her foster parents album out and was looking at it. She looks at it everyday! She always kisses her Omma and Appa. She loves looking at her album and showing us how cute she is!
10 days ago today we were blessed to become the parents to this beautiful little girl. Today was a great bonding day with Daddy! They played outside, watered the trees, played with the ‘Kimchee’, what she says when she wants her picture taken and rode bikes. Today was also Mia’s first day to attend church, she did so well. We didnt even have to go out to the nursery. But Mommy sitting in one place for over an hour is probably a dream come true for Mia.
Mia is definetly a part of the family! She fell and skinned her nose after being home 3 days, which as most of you know we are a house full of accidents!! It looked terrible for a few days but was completely healed for church today and our first post placement visit with the social worker, which went extremely well.
My little kindergarten graduation!!! I am so proud of my little guy. He is his dad’s little shadow…from the time he comes home from work until it is bedtime. He follows his dad around everywhere!!! He is so excited to be 6 years old. I cant believe how blessed we are with this incredible little boy.
Please say a little prayer for my little guy, he is having a little anxiety over the upcoming arrival of his new little sister. He is very anxious and doesnt want me to leave his side. He is rather nervous and is more emotional. I love you Paul!!!
Arent my kids beautiful?It is so exciting to know that God has hand chosen our children and given them to us adopted or not. We don’t know what to expect. Chloe, our first born is beautiful, easygoing and fun. God blessed us with her as our first cookie cutter gingerbread child. Blake has been my easiest little blessing. He is so gentle and loving but also the rough tough little boy is all there too. God blessed me with this second little cookie cutter gingerbread child.
I can not believe with all our injuries Paul has not gotten hurt, as rough and tumble of a kid as he is. But he is not….praise God. The only slight not so much of an injury..was in the midst of the ripped-open-knee/broken nose/missed Ladies retreat was his cap fell off of his tooth..so we did have an emergency run to the dentist….other than he is good. He just keeps saying. I cant believe I am not hurt..its my turn. I say NO IT’S NOT!!!
Anyway…Paul is in Kindergarten this year and thinks he already knows everything. And I will admit he knows alot of stuff. He enjoys showing off his Math skills….all his addition and subtraction. And counting to 100 over and over again…he is my genius kid!!
His first year at co-op is an adjustment..he prefers to lay on the floor and take a rest most times when I pass thru. Fortunalty or unforthantley….his teachers know Paul..and quickly correct him and he moves on. He seems to forget that he is in a classroom setting.
He is taking:
Paul is known for his wonderful sayings that I have no idea where they come from…here are a few…
1. He walks into the kitchen the other day while I was mopping the floor and says, “This isnt even our home.” I said, “What?”. He said, “This world …its not our own…we are just apassin by. Up there is our home.”
2. Mommy, apparently the reason I am so bad all the time is because YOU never tell me all the right stuff to do.
Yes he said apparently…he uses huge words all the time. What a smarty….

Paul is a kindergartner. He used to love school before he had to do it. Now he is really bored with it. He knows his letters, sounds, numbers, adding, subtracting. He knows how to cut, glue, staple, color about everything.!! He just needs to sit down long enough to do some major work. But at this point he is ahead of the game so I am not worried about it. He does about an hour of sit down work every day. He is loving co-op. OTher than when told the other day if he did his homework he would get a sticker next, he told his teacher….ahhh thats okay I dont like stickers very much anyway. He is looking forward to spring. We are going to allow him to play soccer!!! This is going to be fun to watch!!
