We are on a little vacation to get away from the cold! We left just in time- right before the ice storm!
We arrived late at night so all the fun had to start the next day!
The girls love to swim! The giggle and shouted for joy as the jumped in the pool! It was just like the first time we gave them a bath! I had never seen such excitement over a bath before!! The pool seems to have the same effect on them!
All the girls have been in swimming lessons so the are not afraid of the water!
They played and played for 2 hours!
Jim took Emma and Ellie to Subw*y to pick up lunch. He said the girls were really quiet and look frightened. They were relieved when they saw where they were going. I think they thought we were going to leave them somewhere - that is so sad. It will just take time for them to get over their fears and trust that they are ours forever.
After lunch we went to the beach! They love playing in the sand and finding shells!
Of course everyone had to have a pail and shovel. They are doing pretty good with sharing but it is something that we will continue to work on- especially with Ava and Sam coming! Ellie and Anna seem to have the hardest time.
Emma and Ellie are from Southern China. They are not used to the cold weather we have back home. They love the warm weather in Florida!
I have been a little under the weather with the world worst cold. Looking forward to feeling better.
I never tire of watching the children play! I am so thankful they are home and free to be a child in their very own family! I can't help but sing praises to God as I watch them!
Emma has grown 2 inches and gained 6 lbs. Ellie has grown an inch and a half and has lost 2 lbs. Both girls are so much healthier!
Sarah is really growing! Anna is slowly growing.
I went back and read all of our information on Ava. I hav decided that she is around 103 cm and what they have told us must be wrong based on our previous information. I am guessing she will wear size 5 clothes, Anna and Sam are size 4. I'm not going to get hung up on what I don't think I know but instead just be excited for what is to come!
The age of electronics! Kinda sad, kinda funny but they were all together and it was fun! After this they played a card game- which made up for this particular moment!
