Roan and I enjoyed our latest trip to Phipp’s Conservatory last week.  I love the atmosphere there…green and fragrant…it brings me joy.  And so does this boy’s great smile.  🙂

Rachel brought her creepy puppet drawing to life!  Looks great, and kind of scary…

We sure miss our V, who left our home two weeks ago.   Pray for us as we move forward…we’re hoping to see him again as soon as possible.  🙂

It’s been another busy week with our new friends.  This experience has been so special, so enriching for our family.  I’m so grateful to be a part of something so amazing, and to have more people in our lives to love and care for.  We are blessed.

Pateicigs

Our “Pateicigs Gramata”, or “Thankful Book”.  We’re writing what everyone is thankful for on a daily basis.  Last night Bryan was trying to pronounce “pateicigs” correctly, and was failing miserably, which of course had V laughing hysterically.  I love this boy.    🙂

Whew!

Wow, so much is happening here I barely have time to process it!  But it’s definitely a good kind of busy.  I loved watching V so intently playing with legos, the pillow fight with Roan, and putting up the Christmas tree.  Then I took Roan and V to see where Bryan works, and they were fascinated by the machines in the factory.    After dinner we headed out to get some snow boots and pants for V so they can sled ride.  As soon as we got home, he wanted to go out sledding(at 8:30, in the dark).  So of course Bryan was up for it and out they went.  Oh, and the cat knocked over the Christmas tree…and V thought that was hilarious.    🙂

He’s here!  Our first day home has been a day of rest.  So far, Roan and V spent hours building with the marble racer and playing Minecraft.  And I got some delicious chocolates as a gift this morning.  We’re so excited to get to know this tender-hearted boy better.
