So how's it going? Here's a pic that says it all...
I finally got sleep last night - 6 hours at least - but it was straight through. The girls are doing GREAT - and are full of joy and having a terrific time dressing up, looking through their new (hand me down) shoes and dresses, and trying on everything this morning. Yesterday started with a happy wake up by Jenny - then an UNhappy wake up of everyone else who still wanted to sleep.
The girls played outside in BEAUTIFUL weather and loved the trampoline.
We posed for a family pic when a neighbor walked by - it's hard to get everyone together with the boys off at school!
Then the girls became acquainted with our local geckos, lol!
Later, we went to a playground at a Church picnic and they had a ball.
After we got home, I pretty much gutted it out to keep my eyes open - almost giving up at 4pm. Jet lag on the return is so much worse - I was much better in China. I'm EXHAUSTED when I go to bed and even when I wake up. I'm so thankful the girls are doing well - but it's a constant effort to care for them as they're so out of their element. They're both fairly independent - just not in this environment.
We've already begun the "toilet paper wars" - a re-do of Katie's arrival. It's cute to see her so upset about her new roomies refusal to use it as she had the same issue years ago when she arrived, lol. I'm much more laid back about it this time - I must be losing some of my germaphobia.
Lots of folks have asked how they can help - but all I really need is energy and sleep! Perry's got the cooking covered - the girls are doing well - I just need to get my "A Game" back to keep up with them. So I'll leave you with some pics of this morning's dress up excitement while I slurp down my 3rd mug of coffee!
