We are going PINK- we are adopting a little girl from Ethiopia. We'll be sharing our journey to adopt our daughter!

We received the court recorded adoption paperwork for Igor. He has been officially adopted in the USA! Next week we start the paperwork for Henry's re-adoption in the USA. The adoption paperwork never seems to end.

Last week our weather went from snow to 84 degrees! Henry loves to go outside no matter the weather. My adoption pal Jori meet Henry in Ethiopia. She told me he loved to play with water. Last week I introduced Henry to a water table. He LOVES it. He has his own ideas on what to add to the water.

Igor and I made chalk. It turned out better than I anticipated. Igor had so much fun picking the colors and mixing up the Plaster of Paris. We tried using a paper towel roll for a mold but it makes a very thick piece of chalk! So, we used the plastic in the Melissa and Doug chalk- it's the perfect mold! Here's the start of Igor's drawing with the home made chalk.

Yesterday we met the Carpenters! They were on vacation. We were able to meet up with 2 other AWAA adoptive families, the Schmidts and the Coens, for lunch. A good time was had by all. It's always great to FINALLY meet families you only know through a Yahoo group or via a blog.

It has rained for 5 days! Yesterday the boys had to get out of the house. They had a great time playing in the giant puddle!
