Surprise...Chloe can read...in English!



All the girls are doing incredibly well and settling in. They go to bed at 8pm and are up, by themselves, around 5:30 or 6:00 every morning. We have minor melt downs but nothing near what we were prepared for. We were called in for a meeting at School because Krista was getting up during class and walking aroud. When they would say something to her she would bark at them. The only adjustment that we made was allow her to earn stickers for good behavior. The first day she earned 5 out of 6. By Thursday that week she brought home 6 stickers. And since she even had a seven sticker day!!!

This is the cutest video! The volume quality isn't great but the video is priceless. Home only three weeks and already reading. The book is called "I Like" and Chloe is reading it.

All the girls are doing incredibly well and much better than we expected at this point. Tessa is a good helper and usually a real joy. She does have her moments that usually happen just after we say to word "no". Brooke is super attached to me and when i'm home she connects herself to my side and that is where she stays until i pry her off.

I Love being a Papa! Thank you Jesus for your trust and favor!

We are doing AMAZINGLY well! The girls have settled (settling would probably be more accurate) in well and we are having only minor incidents of misbehavior.

The first doctor visit was today. The girls were well behaved, but stuck close to Mama & Papa for the most part. Atleast until the end when they discovered all of the fun things they have there.

Monday....School! They have been asking to go to School all week. We made the decicion to allow them to start right away and get them into the grove of real life.

God Bless!

WE ARE....HOME!

It's been real busy this past week and we haven't been able to update this blog.

We all arrived home Monday night at 8pm. The girls were well behaved on the flight all things considered. Chloe had a bit of a melt down the last 30 minutes of the flight. She was very tired and we had to wake her up to strap her in.

Yesterday was the first full day home and Diana was able to take them to the store and park.

For the most part things are better than we expected.

We'll try to update again soon.

Peace and Love friends!
