Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Etc., Etc., Etc.

Just winding down after a very crazy week. Two stories due, a 14-hour work day on my project AND a really bad cold. I'm just so glad the work and the cold are behind me for the weekend.

A few updates:

  • Maggie's Gymnastic Class: Well, that old Romanian gymnastic teacher certainly knew how to shape up her class. After tears a week ago and a threat of kicking the kid out, the child from my last post returned to class and behaved like an angel. The Mom said her tears were related to frustration because her daughter was so difficult, but that her daughter was upset over the time out at Gymnastics that she had been a different kid all week. It certainly showed in class.
  • La Nina is now tempted to play soccer. After watching her sister last weekend, she's expressed an interest to give the old soccer ball a try. Of course, she's still concerned about getting sweaty, but the pink kleats are going to be the hook. We'll find out if there's an opening for her tomorrow.
  • I didn't have much time to write about what it took to get the picture with Norman (posted below). But imagine the worst princess line in Disneyland and you'll have an idea. It was great to go to the picnic, meet up with many of our friends, introduce La Nina to Norman (Maggie too, but she doesn't get it yet) and meet a few bloggers to boot. Definitely a fun day for all.
  • Because of work commitments this week the girls spent the night with Nana and Papa for the first time. They did great and keep asking when they get to go back. They especially liked sitting in the "Big Chairs watching Mary Poppins" before bed. In fact, they've suggested that becomes part of our bed time ritual. I told them we don't have "Big Chairs" so it wasn't possible, La Nina informed me we could buy "Big Chairs" at a store.
  • We ordered Halloween Costumes for the kids this week and La Nina keeping vigil hourly waiting for the box to arrive. This is the first time she's gotten that boxes on the porch have good things in them. I don't know how we'll manage Santa this year, 'cuz she's onto us.

That's it for now. Hope you had a great week.

    That "Norman Line" was crazy! We got there early and were able to see him before the line. You are in trouble now with the boxes. Sometimes i have to lie to Cameron and tell him we can't open it because it's for Daddy!
