Wonderful Weekend!!!

Well we got to spend the weekend with our travelmates and had a wonderful time. To see those sweet little faces jumping around in the pool was amazing!!! We went to Rockfor Il and stayed at the Clock Tower Resort that had a wonderful indoor water park the girls really enjoyed. We ate pizza in the room on Saturday then out for lunch Sunday before heading home, it just brings so much joy to my heart to see these sweet litle angels all the way from Fujian playing together and my hope is that this amazing bond continues to grow as the grow. We Love you Olivia and Zoie!!!!! I took a few pictures but am hoping Gina has some to share, she took a ton of photos and is quite the photographer, check her site soon for some "good" photos :)

Good News!!!

First, we are so excited because we will be getting together with our travel group from China. Cannot wait to see Lily, Olivia and Zoie together again, it means so much to us for these girls to stay in contact and have that one common thread keep them bonded for life. Here is a photo of all the girls in China.

Next, Nick got his license back!!! Well, he is on court supervision for 3 months but can drive during that time. Once the three months is up and he has NOT gotten any tickets, his last ticket will be dropped and he will have a clear record again since he has officially passed the first 2 years which means he cannot get 2 tickets within the next two years.

Lastly, Lily is officially done with speech. We had three woman over on Wednesday to talk about her progress and she no longer qualifies for the program which is a good thing!!!!!! They said there are hardly any kids in the program who "graduate" out early so we were thrilled. She is is doing great with her speech, putting 5-6 words together now, knows about 10 colors a few shapes, sings most of the alphabet and can recognize about 10 letters by sight!!! She loves puzzles, reading books, building blocks, playdoh and really getting into coloring, she jumps and climbs on everything and is quit limber, she can stand on one leg while holding the other up in the air with her knee near her shoulder, girl has balance!!! She has also moved into a Full size bed, after my grandmas passing we were blessed to be given one of her mattress sets which fit Lily's 4in1 crib my parents bought for her. She LOVES it, the first night I think she jumped around for 1 hour before I could actually get her to lay down. I will have to post pictures once I find that "right" bedspread. Who would have thought it would be this hard to find bedding for a girl???
