A Queen’s Page…

This past weekend Caedmon made his ballet production debut. And he couldn’t have been happier or had a better time. After a week of tech and dress rehearsals Saturday morning finally arrived, the day of his first two shows. He was very excited. During the week while we were driving to rehearsals I reminded him…

Toddlers Do The Zoo….

It was a mommy and toddler date today and we went to the zoo. The morning started out a little chilly (high 30s) but by the time we left it was about 60ish, so really we couldn’t ask for a nicer day. We use to visit the zoo all the time with Leighton because we…

Coppelia 11 Months Home!

So I’m a little late on posting this, but life has been a bit crazy. Actually we are just a few weeks away from celebrating Coppelia being home for a year. But before we rush to 1 year, here’s a little post about 11 months home. Coppelia has her opinions and she will quickly let…

Paxton Home 1 Year!

On March 25th we celebrated Paxton being home 1 year. Clint and I took custody on March 23rd last year on Caedmon’s birthday but we celebrate the day that he came home on the 25th as his Family Day. From the moment he met his brothers in the airport he has adored and followed them…

Happy 6 Years Caedmon!

On Friday we celebrated Caedmon turning 6. Crazy to think that it has already been 6 years since his joyful and imaginative little self made it into our world and our hearts. Everyone needs a little Caedmon in their lives. He adds the sparkle and shine to every day life. His imagination is amazing, often…

On Being A Mom…

Some days I am totally on as a mom and score big in the mom category. Last Friday was a prime example. We had been invited to a St Patty’s party but then at the last minute it got cancelled because the family that was hosting got sick. We were all caught up on school…

Paxton-11 Months Home!

Paxton has been home 11 months! We will soon be celebrating 1 year home and his family day! It’s crazy to think that it has almost been a year, but it is also hard to remember what life was like before this little guy joined our family.  This evening when I was writing on the…

Coppelia-10 Months Home!

Coppelia has been home for 10 months! (and a couple of days). Her language and speech are improving with each day, she is starting to put two words together more often and we have really been working on that. Her words aren’t all that clear most of the time but they are becoming more and…

877 Days…

877 is the number of days that Edric was in Korea before coming home, and on February 15th he reached 877 days home! Crazy to think that he has been home that long already, but then it is also hard to think about what life was like before he joined our family. Edric has grown…

And 1 Year Since Coppélia’s First Meeting…

And we also celebrate our first meeting with Coppélia this week as well. We did not yet have a court date for her at the time of our meeting (it actually came just 24 hours later), but the agency allowed us to meet her while we were already there in Seoul. (I think if they…

And The Olympics…

So for those of you that know me or have read my blog you will know that I love the Olympics and while I rarely watch TV the rest of the time I will be camped out most evenings watching the Olympics over the next two weeks. I will learn the story lines of the…

1 Year Since A First Meeting…

This month is going to be a lot of Korea, a lot of milestones, and such on the blog so get ready…. A year ago today (minus the time change which really makes it a year ago yesterday evening…but whatever), Clint and I made our way across Seoul on the subway to our agency and…
