Chinese New Year, Pre-School, and the Paperchase





HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!


I know I'm a little late since Chinese New Year was actually over a week ago, and now officially over, but things have been so hectic here that I'm just now getting around to updating.


We celebrated the beginning of the Year of the Pig with our family, the Matterns, and the Gupta's. We ate Chinese food for lunch (of course), and the kids got some little treats including red envelopes with 'lucky money' inside. We're enjoying learning about western culture and having a lot of fun with it!! I hope you enjoy the pics!!
Also on Friday of last week, I registered Sam for Pre-School!!! I was so giddy with excitement!! He'll be going three mornings a week. Our hope is that he'll enjoy the time spent with other kids his age (since that is what he is used to) and that he'll catch on with his language skills. We are so excited to bring him home!!!
Lastly, the Fed-Ex man dropped off the last piece of paperwork for our dossier yesterday!!! I went and made copies (101 sheets) and overnighted our completed dossier to our agency!!! The Paper-Chase is complete!! What a relief!! Our agency will give it one more authentication, which should take about a week, then our dossier will head to China!! Check out our China Adoption Blog to read more about it.
Have a great day!!!! <>< ~K

John,

I saw your comment on my blog. Thanks for the well wishes. Feel free to visit the blog anytime. I'm glad to hear things are going well with the adoption! Sorry about not calling you back during the mat leave - I really didn't talk to anyone at work. Now that work's behind me, we can catch up sometime. Good luck with Sam.
