Happy Summer!

We're Back!!!!! Okay, blogger, I see, is still acting up. I'm not going to spend an hour trying to drag and drop these pictures. The text I wrote is at the bottom and I can't get it to move up here... :)
Water Table at Science Museum

"Driving" a tractor at Science Museum
Driving a Segway at Science Museum--kids grow up so fast! ha,ha

Cosmic Caverns, Arkansas ---I had to carry Cassi the whole time because she said the cave was messy--ha,ha

Kai touching the "brain rock" at Cosmic Caverns--the only formation you can touch legally

Cliff Hang Restaurant, AR

Hi, I'm back, for anyone who is still out there in blogland. Cassi is now 2 1/2 years old and is doing great! She has been home a little over a year and a half. We thank God every day for bringing her to us and I STILL can't believe she's really here.
Eureka Springs, AR---it was sooo hot that day!

We are having a busy summer filled with going to the library, playing in the pool and sand table, going to museums, visiting family, having friends over to play, transitioning to the "big girl bed," and have just about accomplished potty training. Cassi continues to be a ball of energy and wakes up with a smile on her face each morning. She will still pretty much eat anything but has toddler moments when she doesn't want anything to eat. She is possibly addicted to Cheezits--ha,ha! Cassi is very girlie and appreciates a pretty shoe or hair bow.

Kai loves having a baby sister and wants to wake her up all the time to play. He loves to teach her new things like how to use the computer or play with Playdoh. Here are some recent pictures (see above, thanks to crazy blogger!). I also updated the photo timeline over on the right. :)
Have a great summer!

So glad you are back! Not sure if you have read our blog, but our Grace reminds me so much of Cassi! The dark, curly hair and dark, dark brown eyes! Glad you are all doing well! Enjoy your summer :)

LOve the update! Love seeing the snowsuit in the picture on the right! I can't believe she fit in it. It just shows you how little our girls were when we got them. Looks like you are having a great summer!

Our daughter was adopted from Baby Home #14 and is about the same age as your daughter, although we didn't get to adopt her until she was almost two. I was wondering if you'd contact me at I was hoping you might have some pictures of the other kids in the orphanage at the time, one of which may be our daughter. We also used Lighthouse and had the same driver.
