A Family Update

No, I'm not done with China, but at least I have notes on all of the days left so I don't completely forget them all.

In the meantime, I'm sorely behind on the present days of February.  Although I was glad to get Titus started on his surgeries, the beginning of February is already busy for us.  Someone had a birthday, despite my suggestion that she stop growing so fast.  Luke informed us that he'd also like to have the Super Bowl for his birthday.  We also celebrated Chinese New Year with dragon dancers that same weekend.  We enjoyed a special Valentine's meal with Aunt Susie and Miss Caroline, and then Aunt Katie came to visit too.  And now all of a sudden, February is over.  In no time at all, I think I'll be writing about how the year is over.

We are definitely settling into a routine here, but I still haven't figured out how to fit everything in.  It's hard to balance all the activities while taking care of myself and the house.  And food.  And all the extras that pop up.  And spend some time with David.  As my mom says, everyone has the same amount of time, so I should probably work on figuring out what the priorities need to be and where I can be more efficient.  Now if I could just find some time to do that...

Six years old!

Someone else is growing too fast as well... 

After his morning coffee (just kidding, although some mornings....)

I'm not sure what this face is saying...but he has learned to say "uh-oh!"


Guan xi fa cai!  Happy Year of the Monkey!

Someone is a lot more willing to feed the dragons now.

Yummy breakfast (homemade crepes) with Aunt Katie.
