This Week: Enjoying Fall

#1 had an audition this week for a local theatre's Christmas production. We'll hear soon if they have a part for him. 

#2 got new shoes!

We went to a local park that has stuffed animals on display. #3 loved seeing some of his favorite animals (like bears) and learning about new-to-him animals (like antelopes). 

My sweet Aunt Lyla made sure all three boys were ready to cheer on the Oklahoma State Cowboys this fall. Aren't they cute?! 

Love the scenery in PA this time of year!

This Week: Appointments & New Recipes

We had a big week, getting #3 to some important appointments and learning to cook new foods he would really like. Here are the highlights!
#3 had a physical this week at our family doctor and went to the eye doctor. Both appointments went great! Next week he has an evaluation with our school system so they can decide the best classroom placement for him when he's ready to go to school. 

We also stopped by the church when it was empty and quiet so he could look around and check out his Sunday school room. 

#3 is a great eater, but he's still adjusting to some American food, like hamburgers (his fine and gross motor skills are underdeveloped, so holding a burger together is hard for him). So this week I tried some new recipes and he loved it all! 

The weather is getting cooler, so we are trying to spend time outside when we can!

#1 is counting down the days to his birthday this month! He's also looking forward to auditions for a new production at our favorite local theatre next week.

This Week

We've been helping #3 strengthen his gross and fine motor skills. 

#1 enjoying Lego club at the library. 

Lots of apples to make apple sauce!

He's not sure he likes his hoodie.

Impressive bed head.

This Week: New Normal

We are adjusting to a new normal around here! I wrote about our time in China on my other blog, so here we'll focus on how things are going at home. I've noticed most families who adopt don't blog about how it's going for at least a month. That gives time and space for everyone to adjust. So I'll just share some highlights from each week as I have time and feel comfortable doing so.

I really missed hanging out with #2 in the mornings, waiting for his school van. 

I also really missed playing Minecraft with #1! He had some surprises to show us when we got home.

#3 checking out our garden.

This Week: The End of Summer Countdown Is on!

A local park has a sensory garden we always have fun going to! #1 likes to work on the dam and #2 likes to get as wet as possible!

I love the quiet moments we have on our swing outside.

He's decided he really loves tire swings. The dizzier he gets, the better.

Enjoying an audio book!

Friends at church did a shower for #3! It was so much fun and came at exactly the right time since we found out on Friday that we'll be traveling to China next month! We're counting down the days and crossing things off the to-do list.
