Back to School

Mira and Evan started school on Aug 11. Mira had 2 half days of pre-k and Evan had 2 whole days of kindergarten the first week.Then they started going every day. Mira had the same teacher Evan had in pre-k, Ms. Aline. Evan's teacher is Ms. Ashley. She seems very nice. Evan says he can't wait too long to see her again!! It's so hard to believe that both of our babies are in school. They are growing up so fast!

Mira and Camp Rock

Mira turned 4 yrs old on Aug 6th. She wanted to have a "Camp Rock" birthday party. For those of you who have been living under a rock, this is a movie that came on the Disney channel starring the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato. It is a really cute movie so I was fine with it. The shindig was held at Gran and Poppa's. She made out like a bandit!!! Ha Ha

Been a while!

Once again, I'm so behind on posting. We had a very busy summer.In July, we visited with our friends Beth and Margot in Nashville. We had a great time just spending time with them. We had a cookout and our other friends, the Colwells came from Clarksville. All 3 of our girls were in the same orphanage and we shared the same "gotcha day". We spent the whole 2 weeks in China with them. It was so great to see everyone and let the girls spend time together. It is so important for them to keep in touch. They have a very special bond and we want them to always remember that.

Gotcha Day!!

Easter Pics

I forgot to post Easter pics of the kids. We never remember to get family photos when we're all dressed up. We dyed eggs on Saturday and after church on Sunday we had lunch at Mom and Dad's with Gran, Poppa, NaNa, Poppa Charles, and Mema. We had an egg hunt after we ate.

Long overdue

Well, I haven't posted here in forever. It seems like life just takes over and there's no time for anything. Mira has had to have quite a lot of dental work done. Seems she has very bad teeth. We've got everything taken care of and now we're working really hard to be cavity free. Evan has been having hearing problems. He can't hear much at all. We took him to see his pediatrician and he has ear infections and excessive fluid in both ears. She seems to think he will need tubes so we go to see an ENT dr this Wednesday. With everything else going on, we did manage to go have some fun. We went to the circus last weekend. We really had a lot of fun. Mira and Evan got to ride an elephant. They had a ball. They also rode the little ponies. I didn't get any photos of that because we had to walk along beside them and they were really going fast!! I was almost at a jog trying to keep up with it. Mira thought it was really funny that I was having to work so hard to keep up. Evan was very fascinated with the circus, he asked questions the whole time. Poor thing, he couldn't really enjoy what was going on at the time cause he was wondering about something else he saw on the side!! I'm adding a few pics, as you can see, I really loved the elephants, they're my favorite. They just look so sweet!!! Also love the tigers they are really beautiful animals.

Hannah Montana

Mira has become a huge Hannah Montana fan. On Feb 1, the girls that I work with and I took our girls to see the 3-d concert movie. We had such a good time. I have to admit, I liked it probably as much if not more than Mira. Mira and her friend Breanna finally decided to get up and dance during the last song. I guess better late than never. Ha Ha If people hadn't thought I was crazy, I probably would have danced too!!

Chinese New Year

We celebrated Chinese New Year this year in Memphis at a celebration held by the Families with Children from China group. Evan was a little scared but they ended up having a good time. We got to see a lot of our friends and we're always happy to get to spend time with them. Evan and Mira both got to walk under the dragon in the dragon parade and had fun doing the bubble wrap run.

What else happened?

I guess the next important thing that happened after Christmas and New Years is that Evan started Pre-K. They had an opening in the pre-k program at the primary school so we were able to get him in. He has to dress in the dress code just like the big kids. He was so cute in his khaki's and navy shirt. I could not believe that my baby boy was starting school. He handled it way better than I did. Rog and I both took him on his first day, he went on in and started playing like he'd been there before. I told him from across the room" bye Evan, mom and dad are gonna go now" he just waves us bye from across the room and I couldn't believe it. I was the one crying not him. His teachers can't believe he's never been to school before. He get's a treat from the treasure box every week for good behavior(which is so hard for me to believe) Here's a little pic of his first day of school!!

Long time no Blog!

It has been way too long since I posted! Life has totally been happening and I've not taken the time to fill everyone in on what's been going on with us. Well let me start with Christmas- It was great. Evan really enjoyed the whole "santa thing". He had a ball. Of course, they got way too many toys and we have nowhere to put it all but that's the way it's supposed to be. Here are a few pics of our holidays.
