Well another week goes by and it was a busy one! I had lots of errands this week and responsibilities at the kids school so most of my days were spent away from home. June and I went shopping a few times this week, she is a good little shopper. On Tuesday we went to lunch at Noodles and Co. where I had one of those great adoption conversations. The cashier was a 20 something young man. I was holding June while ordering lunch. After I ordered he said, "That's not your kid, is it?". I, of course, replied, "Yes, this is my daughter.". It felt so good to say it, my daughter. I know I had a smile on my face as I walked to our table.
WARNING....this post is very picture heavy. Last night Russ and I attended my friend Wendy's 40th Birthday party. Wendy and I have been friends since the 6th grade and roomed together in college. We had a great time helping her celebrate her special day!
Wendy, Sara, Cath, and me.
Although Chinese New Year is not until tomorrow, we celebrated today because Russ will not be here tomorrow for dinner. I decorated with paper lanterns, oranges, and red envelopes and we had Chinese food for dinner! The pictures below are of June celebrating her day!
Of course a weekend would not be a weekend here without sports. The picture below is of TJ playing indoor soccer. Jake and Max both had basketball games and all three boys spent a lot of time sledding out back.
