Day 12 of 100 - Oops, missed one

Given all that was going on yesterday, I'll extend myself a little grace for completely forgetting to put up a blog post. It was a very busy day, but one that went very well. My allergies calmed down, the girls were wonderful at China Camp, and we got everything we absolutely needed to do done. Can't ask for much more than that.

Today was a bit harder with China Camp. There was some miscommunication that resulted in more work for us as teachers, but we survived. The girls in our class are having a blast and ought to be dropping into bed exhausted every night because we keep them running from the time they arrive until pick-up. At least the teachers are dropping into bed exhausted!

After camp today, we met up with the other families that traveled to China with us for L's adoption. There are 7 families here this week of the original 16 and it was soooo very nice to sit and talk over a Chinese dinner. We had a private room, so the girls (and one little brother) ran and played the whole time while the grown-ups indulged in the opportunity to talk to other adoptive parents who really get it. There are just things that you need another parent in the same situation to truly understand and be able to compare notes with.

It's been almost 5 years since we went to China to adopt these girls. They are beautiful, amazing, and full of life and joy.
