So, we were supposed to have a pool party and wouldn't you know it was pouring rain. Our spirits were not dampened however and fortunately I had reserved the clubhouse. The theme of course was a disney princess party and many of the girls came decked out in their best dresses. We ate pizza, had cake, opened presents and once again had a great time. Now all the birthdays are done for the year. The place was exploding pink but so was the fun. I'm already looking forward to next year and so are Keara and Kailei.
Happy Birthday everyone!

She did just fine. I raced off in my car to beat the bus to school. She enjoyed riding it. We've been talking about it for months so I'm sure she was just happy to finally get on. Fortunately the bus picks her up and drops her off just across the street so it very convenient. Zeb was there waiting for her when she got home. And it was just wonderful to hear that she had a great day. Whew!
Her teacher's name is Mrs. Whitney and she seems very nice. There is also a student teacher in he room so the ratio of teacher to student is pretty good. :) Keara really likes them both so it seems we are off to a good start.

I want more time. More time to shelter her from the hardships. More time to play. More time to watch her discover all that is around her. More time to cuddle and love the toddler that once was Kailei. Now she is a little girl and going off to pre-school. I'm so very proud of her.
Kailei had a great day (as expected). She was a little hesitant but nothing like Keara was (three heart-breaking weeks of her crying at the window as I left each day). These little ones from China are fighters. Life has not always been kind to them and I hope that my prayers for Kailei and all her Chinese friends are listened to on some level.
Kailei will be OK. I will be OK. Let her education begin.
