This picture is Kboy in his classroom but last spring at the registration day. He liked his teacher so much that I asked for him to be in her class and it worked out. Have I mentioned that she is an adoptive mom also? :) Yes I am so thrilled.
It is amazing how one thing can change your whole outlook around. I was in a bit of a funk this week. I was missing Kboy on Wednesday. He was home with a fever on Tues and it was hard to have him gone again the next day. Wednesday was also the day that Anika turned 6 months old. I was in a major funk that day. I was too sad to even post about it. I managed to get past Wednesday and then I put him on the bus Thursday am and came back to "hit the computer" and check out every one's blogs and the adoption chat groups. I hit the send/receive on my email and there is a message from Kboy's teacher. She has a parent come in every Thursday to help make copies and prepare things for the next week etc.. The parent that was going to come had to cx and would I be able to come for an hr that day or the next. I ended up going to school for 2 hrs Thursday and it was such a blessing to me! It was nice to be able to help. I can not describe how neat it was to see Kboy in school sitting in a circle on the floor working with his class. He was so excited that every few minutes he said " Mommy I love you" to me in the back of the class. I was in the office for much of the time making copies and I think that was good so that his teacher could teach without him saying that every few minutes. LOL The best reaction from Kboy was when his teacher took me out to the playground to say hi before I went to the office. He was so happy. He took me to his line and I lined up with the class and walked behind him into school. :) I am really looking forward to Nov when I get to go again. There is also the Halloween Party the day before. This is going to be fun.

Germany Trip 2007 August
Friday, October 12, 2007
feeling. That is the day that I called and they said that they had no record of our file. So I guess
that explains that. I am so happy right now.
Kboy was only at school today until 12:00. They had a half day and the teachers had a professional development day in the afternoon. It was so fun to see him all afternoon. We hit the park and the library and played some board games. All around a good day. Happy weekend.

Wow I just found this on You Tube. This is a video from the Guatemalan Ties trip this summer. They arrange a heritage trip to Guatemala for adoptive families. This looks amazing. I can't wait until K boy is a bit older so we can go. He is so proud of Guatemala and I am so happy and thankful for that. I just love the smiles on these kids in the video. Kuddos to these parents for taking such a trip with and for them...
I want to say CONGRATULATIONS to Emily and hopefully I will have better news soon.

My Montage 10/3/07
This is a movie with some pictures from last spring and summer. I am feeling so sentimental these days. I think I will be making more of these in the days to come. Time to go get Kboy off the bus. :) I am finding that since we don't have nearly as much time together as before the time we do have is better in a lot of ways. We are both excited to see each other and we have more quality time. Don't get me wrong it is not ALL great but somehow more intense. There are times when we are still on each others nerves. I am just wondering how things will go once Anika is added to the mix. We are getting used to this "new normal" and then in a few months it will be changed majorly again. Have to run the first bus just came by. :)

Part of her note read " He is very ready for all day K..." I had to giggle at that one because it seems that he was "ready for all day K" all along it was ME that everyone had to drag kicking and screaming to the school. (Not literally :) I really wanted him to go just half day. It seems like I had to "send him to school" a year early this way. This last month has been very interesting for me. I think once Anika is here things will fall into place. I am so happy and thrilled with school and so sad at the same time. Very strange feeling really. I did go to the school a few weeks ago when they had school pictures to help. That was really neat to see him there and how happy he was! I knew he was happy but to see it was a very neat experience. I had a hard time not crying. My first day to go into his class and help his teacher prepare things is Nov 1st. That will be fun and very interesting though I am guessing he will act differently with me there. Since K is now all day I have cut his activites way back. The only thing he is doing right now other than school is Tae Kwon doe. He started that this summer and we all love it. The change in him has been amazing. He is so much more respectful and listens better. I think this is helping him shine so bright at school. Tonight was his first "test" he demonstrated what he has learned since June and answered questions on the history of Tae Kwon doe. He has moved up into a new rank. He is now a yellow belt. The look on his face is worth everything in the world to me. I am very very very thankful tonight!! He is such a special gift and I am so lucky to be his Mom. I can only imagine how great it is going to be to have Anika with us as well.
