For Korea

Lily's 2 year old photos. Just some of the pics we are sending to her foster family for an update. Hard to believe the last one we sent was 6 months ago. Hope everyone had a restful memorial day weekend.

What a Week!

It started with Luca's 5th Birthday on Sunday. Rick's mom and grandmother were visiting as well. The rain was on and off but it didn't stop the party from happening.

How cool is that cake?

Then there were the end of Pre-K events. I volunteereed to make scrapbooks for the teacher gifts. I must have been insane since there are 3 teachers and 21 children. I ended up creating 63 pages! It's just that these teachers are so outstanding and so deserving of a special gift. On Thurs we had the end of year party and today was the family picnic. I have to admit a few tears were shed as we said good-bye to pre K. I will miss the drop off hugs and kisses and the looking back to me for a thumbs up as I walked away. The moms in this class are so cool and we actually really enjoy each others company so I will miss the chats at pick up. This year I found it amazing to hear such praise for my little Luca, how he listened and was such a joy all the time. This being because lately with me he is the devil! I was consistently impressed with what he was learning and so happy to have had these women in his life.

Breaking It In

Ok, so I haven't chosen my new lens yet. I have been on 100 photography websites over the last few days and still I am not ready to commit. For now, however, I have been so excited to use the new camera body that I have just been shooting with the old lenses, by that I mean around 4 yrs old . Please, please any suggestions, comments would be so helpful.

May 11th in Korea

Check out Seoul City Blog for some interesting info on Adoption Day.

Time to say "goodbye"

The end of the road is here my good friend. You have been with me through the best of times, birthdays and holidays. You have traveled to many parts of the world and we have had countless adventures. They sure don't make em like you anymore, 10D. You have done me proud but here is where we part. You see, the 7 D has arrived and it is time for me to move on. I know you will bring joy to another like you have for me.
My keeper of a husband has presented this gift to me for Mother's Day. Sweeeeet!

Tea Time

Yesterday was Mother's Day Tea with Luca's pre K class. All the moms received a paper corsage made by the students and our photo was taken with our child. Mrs. Mazella interviewed each child about their mother with questions such as..."What is your mom's favorite color?" and "How old is she?" I appreciated Luca stating my age as 8. The kids sang us a song and read aloud a book about love.
We were presented with a drawing of ourselves and we were served, tea, fruit and brownies. At each place setting, a plant was waiting for us to take home and pink carnations were given out as we left. Can you say adorable?? Of course the sap that I am had to hold back tears a few times, realizing that pre school days for my middle son are coming to a close. Once again I ask the question... "can't we slow it down just a little bit?"

Adults Only Weekend

Saturday was our first Gold Cup. Lots of big hats, big drinks and we won two out the 5 races. We joined 3 other couples and set up a table with cheese, salads, shrimp and lots of great food. The sun was shining, the horses were beautiful and did I mention we were kid free for almost 24 hours??
