Summer Birthdays

This is mine and  Sophie's last week of school.  We celebrate all the summer birthdays on one day during this week.  Sophie is so proud of her crown.  She wore it the entire day and then insisted on sleeping with it on.  Of course I let her.  She was so cute and funny.  Her birthday is in July and she tells me everyday.  This year will be a very special birthday for a very special girl!!!!

K3 Spring Program

Mrs Owens and Sophie

Sophie had her K3 Spring Program today and did a great job.  Two months ago when we started singing the songs, I told Mrs. Owens that I was not going to put Sophie in the program and add any extra stress to her life.  She was at that time and  still is a little bit threatened  by the presence of other adults that she does not know.  So, I am pleased and thrilled that she did her program today and actually had a good time doing it!!!  She has come a long way!!!!

Thank you Mrs Owns for 20 years of precious programs!!!  Both of my boys have done your programs and I am so thankful that my sweet little girl got to do one has well.  I have had the pleasure of working with you for the past 4 years and I am going to miss you very much.  You brighten my day, make me smile, make me laugh and laugh and laugh, make me cry, pray for me and I for you.  Oh yes, and you always have chocolate for me!!!!!!!

You are precious to me and I am going to miss you so very much!!!!

Swinging on the playground after the program....her favorite thing to do!

8 Months with Sophie

Put Q tips in the holes in the bathroom cabinet, of course!

Do you remember this picture?

Well you should hear this on is very loud!!!!

Sophie has been wanting to watch her "crying" video as she calls it.  We have watched it every day this week.  She just likes to watch the crying part and then she is done.  She thinks that it is funny that she is crying and tells me that she is crying because she wants her Mama and Daddy.  This is so not fact....she did not want us at all....she was one mad little Chinese girl that didn't understand what was going on.  

Thanks goodness time changes everything.  She tells me now when she watches this video that " Sophie no go back to China" "Sophie stay in America"

She is a happy little girl and a joy to so many people.  Adopting her has truly been an experience of a lifetime.
