I've decided that this blog needs a new name. It may still chronicle the journey of our life, it isn't really an adoption journey.

Now I need to think of a catchy title. Any suggestions?

Brandon's creation

Brandon worked very hard in art weaving this satchel like Indiana Jones. He couldn't wait to bring it home to show me.

Working with Papa

Ethan had fun helping Papa work on the edging stones in front of the house. He is quite the worker.
Digging the hole.
Tossing the dirt out of the way.

Checking if it's deep enough.

Ethan won a certificate for a huge, loud, very overstimulating indoor play place from the Read-A-Thon at school. I knew that it would be much more than he could handle so since he really had no idea what Bonkers really was, he now thinks that the indoor play place at Burger King is called Bonkers. It was a much better size for him and a lot less crowded and no one would complain that he has to keep his shoes on because of his braces.

Ethan took this one of Brandon after he had played for about 30 minutes and was worn out.

Here is Ethan 'reading' a book from school. I tend to think it's a bit more memorized than read, but it was great to have him read to me either way.

Ethan's Valentine Box

Ethan worked hard putting foam heart stickers on his box. Notice he put them about 8 deep on the sides.
