Then there is that daughter of mine! Oh how I am loving doing her hair and dressing her! And enjoying her being in my arms, giving kisses, and watching her learn and do so much since she came home!
But boy, does she keep us on our toes, she is into everything! Today, I found her in our hutch! She is so much fun! I can't believe it was only 4 months ago that I held her for the first time in almost a year! It seems like she has just always been here in our family! Then there are times when it seems like it was just yesterday! The boys have been talking about how they miss Guatemala! I do too sometimes! But mostly I am so thankful to be home, and enjoying our family!

We went to some friends house to ride the quads last night.
Look at those smiling faces, they were so excited to drive the quads that they couldn't contain themselves!!
This is Anaya's newly redone high chair.
We had our home study this week and it went very well. I have some more paperwork, and money to shell out, but hey, she is home, so I can't complain!!
Only a few more weeks left of these lazy days of summer, I can't believe it, where has time gone?

Easton finishing off the ice cream, good stuff!
Celebrating Grama Greats birthday at Johny Carrinos, and devouring her ice cream sundae! Look at Easton's shirt, one kid always seems to come out of every restaurant looking like this!
Anaya cruising around furniture, she is getting so good at it, I don't think walking is too far off now!
Dylan and Jayden tubing with uncle Robb and Aunt Lisa.
All 7 kids on Aunt Lisa's quad!
Cooling off in the giant sprinkler!
Uncle Robb even borrowed a golf cart so Anaya and I could have a ride! Notice I am wearing my glasses~Jayden swallowed one of my hard contact lenses! At least that's what we think, I had them in cups(couldn't find my case while at my parents house)and he came by and got a drink out of one of them, and now it is gone!!! Major OOPS!! That was an expensive drink of water!!
All of the kids enjoying their own Mountain Dew!! Oh how they love to go to Aunt Lisa and Uncle Robb's house, this never happens at home!
Wow, I can't believe summer is coming to an end! With a trip to Chicago to visit my sister and brother in law, then the Olympics, and being at my parents house(with no internet) while Ryan was on Manitou Island with some Jr. highers, and their dads, we have been very busy, as usual! But we are having so much fun!
We have our first post adoption meeting with yet another social worker, so I don't know exactly what to expect, but I am sure it will go fine. I am so ready to be done with all the paperwork, and meetings, but at least we are on this side, an able to enjoy Anaya every day, and that is exactly what we are doing!
Thanks for checking in!
