Now without further ado, our lives in photographs from the last few weeks!
Monday, May 26 marked the three year anniversary of the final leg of our adoption journey. We were on a flight to Manila the Philippines to meet our three youngest daughters and bring them home! This year it was also the day for a first piano recital of the two older ones. They did so well!! It's amazing what a difference three years can make!
Earlier in the month was prom. Wow! If it was this big an event for the Boy, I can only imagine what it's going to be like for the girls! It's all we heard about for weeks!
Nathanael and one of his best friends, Hendrik.
For Nathanael a major part of this was about the shoes. He obviously lives in a predominantly female household because he spent hours studying shoes. Maddie, his date on the other hand, waited until the bitter end to buy her shoes. She makes me smile!
The high school friends.
This photo and the one that follows were requested by the boys. It's what a little photo editing will do. I'm still not fond of the blending of the grass to the water in the second photo, so I will have to do some more playing with it, but the effect the boys were looking for is there. :o) Can you say, "Bond?!"
Nathanael and his date Madi with his cousin Nik (different school, but also had prom) and his girlfriend Ali.
Next was field day with another local Christian school. The girls all did really well. Beans and Bella even moved on to District field day this coming week.
Beans also had a baseball tournament this past Friday. She has come such a long way athletically. When she started at school in grade five, she hated anything to do with athletics. Now she works very hard to do well and actually genuinely likes some sports. I think it helps that one of her closest friends is very athletic and encourages her to do well also.
Well, that's it for the big things for now. Hopefully I will find opportunities to post more stuff over the next week or two. I have to chat about a Roomba, the garden, my tidy craft room, books I've read, my failed book ban, etc.
