I'm not really up for this level of busy-ness right now. :P We're deep into our new fall schedule, and between preschool, knitting group, and Bible study, we have something every morning. Not to mention teaching, life group, and whatever else comes up. I feel like I have time for the house, or my kids, or me, but not all three! Oh, and David too. I was hoping things would settle down once we got used to it, but they haven't. I need to figure some things out with our schedule so I can squeeze in all four of the aforementioned items.
In the midst of life, Liz's six-month anniversary came and went! She's been home six months now, and it's a little hard to believe how much she's changed. Last night she was helping David empty the dishwasher, and she was so excited to take her plastic spoons over to the drawer...she opened the drawer and carefully put them away, one by one, then ran back to David, excited for the next job. She's so big!
I still wish she'd communicate less with whines/fussing and more with words, but for only six months of English language acquisition, she's done really well. Someone who has adopted internationally told me that six months is great milestone, but a year is when you go, "Oh, so that's who you are." We can't wait to get to know her even better!
First moments together

One month home--it was so fun to see her do the same things Katie and Luke did. (4/11)

Oh, that black thing in my face. Better not smile.
