Summer fun

Oh My Goodness!

Has it really been that long since I last posted? Well I guess so and I apologize but life just gets a little too crazy.

We ended 2010 with our foster children moving on to an adoptive family. We also decided to take a job transfer to Arizona about an hour and a half from Las Vegas. It was hard to leave the older boys in Texas but they are all grown up and have their own lives. We still miss them!

Jyly had started school in Texas and was going to pre-k full days five days a week. What a shock when we got to Arizona and found out she would only be going 2 and 3/4 hours four days a week.

We had our third gotcha day in January! I still can't believe when I see the counter that over a thousand days have gone by since she stepped on US soil.

I looked at Jyly the other day after finding an old passport picture we had taken a little over a year ago. Wow has this girl grown! She is tall an skinny and looking less and less little girl everyday. How does this happen without us realizing?

The end of next month we will be going to DC for Heritage weekend. We are very excited because for us it is a Kyrgyz reunion. Our flight is booked and we are all trying to stay in the same hotel. I know Jyly won't remember any of these children that she spent the first 2 years of her life. It is going to be more fun for us adults. We have a great little adoption community and followed each others adoptions so it will be great to put faces with names. Yes we follow each others blogs and facebook but it's better to meet in person.

The other thing on the agenda is a trip to Bellingham, WA for my neices wedding. Jyly is so excited. She has never met my neice so I did not feel right having the girls in the wedding but I did want them to feel like they were a part of it. I got them flower girl dresses and she can't wait to wear her beautiful dress. Maybe I will get some good pictures. The next few months are so busy that they will fly by and school will be out for the summer. We are ready for some fun in the sun!
