A Robot, please!

Since our little boy in Thailand is 7 years old now, he obviously has his likes and dislikes. So, we sent over a list of questions with our agency rep. and we received the translated answers yesterday. He likes to eat noodles, soup and apples...I can handle that. He likes to draw and play soccer...great match for Jacob! He likes learning Thai at school...hmmmm. And when asked if he had any special requests from us...he said he would like a robot. Sounds like a typical little boy to me!

Adoption News

Our contact person at our adoption agency visited our little boy last week in Thailand. She said he has the nicest smile and was beaming when he looked through the photo album we sent for of us and our home. We also sent him a Uof M t-shirt and he was wearing it. Our agent is mailing us new photos of him as well as a picture he drew for us. I can't wait to see them! We also sent over a list of questions, and the answers to them are being translated for us. Our dossier is also being translated in Thailand and we are waiting for our immigration approval which should arrive by Christmas. So....maybe we can travel by March?

The First Snow

It's impossible to keep one's attention on school work when there's a first snowfall right outside the window! we went into the white outdoors. The fresh, cold air was good for all of us to get rid of some of those cough germs that have been hanging out lately.

Hang on, kids!

A ride down our little hill.

Not to be outdone by his big brother...Charlie will give his sister a ride.

Boy, she's heavier than she looks!

It's not fun until someone's beamed with a snowball!

Driver's Ed.

Charlie is on the road...well, around our yard and cul-de-sac, anyway. He got a new jeep for his birthday and he's learning fast!

Jacob had to throw it in reverse to keep from Charlie from driving them into the woods!

Happy Halloween!

The kids had a full day of trick or treating. Laura had therapy earlier in the day, and the therapists took their patients around the facility to get treats. Jacob & Charlie got to go, too. Later, we joined friends and ran from house to house for two hours. The weather was perfect, and we all had a great time!
