2 months home

Wow, seriously, can tomorrow be our 2 month home date? It has gone so fast and the girls are still doing great. We have come so far so fast. Katie speaks way more English than Amharic....she repeats EVERYTHING! It is so funny. Tonight I put her in bed before Olivia and she hates this....a few weeks ago if I had done this I would have heard...Yordanos over and over again...tonight I heard Olivia, Olivia, etc. Olivia is starting to speak more and more each day too. As much as I loved Spring Break, it was not good timing for her. She was really on a roll in school. I hope she can pick back up where she was before. She likes school a lot and has made some really sweet friends. The boys are loving their sisters so much. I love to see Carter and Olivia take off and play soccer in the backyard, or see Nicholas and Katie playing dress up and belly laugh when they see each other, too funny. We still thank God everyday for the blessing of our kids. We pray that the next 2 months go as well as the first 2 have.

Last night we went to the airport to see some friends arrive home from Ethiopia with their son. It was incredible. He is the most adorable little guy. It is so neat to look from afar and watch his new siblings greet him. I can't believe it has been 2 months since we left for our adventure to get our daughters. I know I will remember the moment we arrived home with Nicholas and with the girls. Two completley different circumstances, but each perfect. God has blessed my family in so many ways. My prayer for each of you is to have a wonderful Easter. Enjoy your family and appreciate every second with them.
