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.

Whew! We Survived Family Day

Well, yesterday was Maggie's fourth family day.  It's so hard to believe she's with us 4 years.  Wasn't it just yesterday that wild thang was placed in our arms?  On the other hand, was there ever a day this child wasn't with us?  Seems like she's always been here.  I'd like to say we spent an entire day watching our old China videos, telling her adoption stories and spoiling her.  But alas, that isn't true.  See, her family day fell on the last day of soccer season and the first day of dance season.  So, we had a few things going on.  

The day started at 8:20 when we flew out of the house for our first soccer game, we got to the field, warmed up, played a game, jetted home so I could change out of my coaching gear, then raced back to the field for La Nina's game.  La Nina played her game and I greeted her on the sideline so she and I could dash to Livermore for a dress rehearsal for her first dance competition of the year.  After stripping her out of her soccer uniform, flinging a dance costume onto her body, putting her hair into a bun and applying some make up, she danced with her team.  Her dance went poorly, so the director had the team run it twice more.  It went better the second and third time but the director decided the costumes were unworkable, so we turned in our costumes, put our soccer uniform back on, then headed to La Nina's end of the year soccer party.  After playing a few video games, receiving her first trophy and eating cupcakes, we headed home for Maggie's family day celebration.  When we got home, of course, the Magster had to open presents (nothing major), then it was time for dinner, so we headed to her favorite Mexican place (Chinese is SO done on Family Days), then we came home to watch Maggie's favorite movie: High School Musical.  

Or may be I should say the girls watched the movie.  I fell asleep as soon as I sat down.  Gee I wonder why?  Happy Family Day, Maggie!  We're so glad on November 15, 2004 you joined our family.
