Just because I love these photos ...




The boys have been part of our family now for about 9 1/2 months, and sometime in the last few months we have settled into feeling like a normal family again. It just kindof snuck up on me and I didn't even realize it had happened until another adoptive mom mentioned "feeling like a normal family" - and I thought "hey, we feel normal again too! When did that happen?!?"

The older 3 kids have started school, we had a wonderful summer full of activity, we really don't have the language barrier anymore, and everyone knows the normal family routines. Maea recently turned 11 (my baby is 11!!!) and we now have 2 girls that are beginning to exhibit teenager-like behaviour (yikes). All is well!

Oh, and I got a new camera (Canon 50D) and I really, really like it. We have 2 Fall adoption seminars scheduled in the Twin Cities (
www.awaa.org/events), and I'm leaving for Ethiopia in less than 3 months (www.hopechest.org) with Children's Hopechest!
