8,000 Words

I'm exhausted but wanted to upload some pictures to share with those of you who have been checking on us.  They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, so here are 8,000 "words" for you.  :)  

Here she is in Wal-Mart for the first time...

Painting toenails...

Playing doll house...

The kids all disappeared upstairs and created some music and then came downstairs to perform it for us...

Tonight we went to the New Horizons for Children event at the splash ground, where Sandija got to see some of her friends from Latvia, as well as a Latvian chaperone.  She had a great time socializing with everyone!  :)

Here she is with her "Daddy Bear," as she calls him...

All the kids LOVED the splash ground, especially in this record-breaking heat!

Lovin' the watermelon.

Hopefully I will find some free time to write more, as there is so much to say.


  1. She looks like she's just having so much fun! I wish we could meet her. Lots of prayers for all of you. By the way, her blanket is just plain awesome! I wish I could do that.

  2. Thank you. :) The blanket was actually easy, as the material looked like a quilt...I didn't piece that together. :) She LOVES it!
