Lovely – really lovely guys!! Especially enjoyed your letter to the boys about sending them to Kindergarten again. Great job – it looks super!
We don’t have a listing of recipes yet, but we’ll try to get that together – thanks for the thought. In any case – here is the mac-n-cheese post!
I am not all that Computer literate I love your blog, and I love your SWAP. My question is: is there a place to go to find all your wonderful recipes in one place? I have not been able to find your special mac and cheese with the tomatoes?? This time I printed the new salad one right away but alas and alack I did not do that with the others
Tell your kiddos I think they are very special and I think it is so wonderful how the big boys take such special care of their little sis Meera. Loved the scarecrow story! I am so glad you bought it for her!!
OMG! I just stumbled onto the blog and was checking it all out superfast. You guys are just amazing! Love the Halloween outfits! We took Joy and Gracie out at Peewee’s this year and we were remembering the time the boys joined us! Maybe we can do it again next year! We need to get those crazy kids together more often! Miss you guys. Hope to see you at Gracie’s party( I just sent out invites now!) Miss you all bunches!
Heather, I was wondering whether the boys’ hair is locked or if you just twist it often. We have done sister locs on Kobi and I am trying to decide what to do with Isaiah’s. We need a change – either cut it shorter or lock it or twist it or…
Yes, K & O have locs! Here is the link to a big post about our locs story:
Thanks for reading!
Really missing how you used to post picks of the kids lunches. I need some inspiration!
I look forward to every blog. I guess your wonderful trips and Meera’s birthday party stand out. How wonderful that a mom and grandmother would help a little girl live out her fantasy. I have an adopted son who is black Vietnamese (age 42) and a Haitian grandson (age 6) I actually first saw your blog while visiting my daughter who has the Haitian son. Your blog restores my hope as I see you as people who deal with all the stresses of living but who have great core values that keep you going in the right direction. Our whole family went to Haiti to meet our grandson, Richelor when he was matched with his parents.
I love love your blog! It is so funny and well-written. I believe so strongly in adoption and am so thrilled to see a first-choice adoptive family. Thank you for sharing your story in such an engaging way.
Hello: I’ve read your blog for a while now –your family is beautiful and each entry inspiring. Our family was created through adoption over three years ago. My husband and I, both Caucasian and our son, African American. Earlier this year, when we found out that I was pregnant, I automatically thought of your family.
While we ultimately recovered from the initial shock, we remain overwhelmed with worry about the potential impact of having a biological child may have on our son. He is very excited about having a baby brother. His questions about race and his adoption story have increased, understandably so (such as, will the baby be brown or white?). When my nephew’s girlfriend visited for the holidays, he asked me “is that the lady’s whose belly I grew in?”.
I hope you don’t find this request inappropriate or too personal– but I was hoping you could share your own experience with your sons’ questions about adoption and questions they may have had upon the birth of their sister.
Came across your blog through a website called nappturality.com, you have a wonderful family and great blog!
All the best
Hi Heather, You are so right on about the dress. I also made sure my son dressed well even in high school and college. He had the nicest clothes in the family. I still think it was a good idea and it served him well. Also, eye contact was another thing we insisted on as well as the idea of keeping your hands where they can be seen if stopped by a cop. NPR had a commentary and interview about this very subject today. The good thing is that we are having this dialog so keep up the good blogs.
I ran across your blog through Dreaming Big Dreams blog. I must say your blog is refreshing to read. Even though my husband and I do not have kids yet, I loved all that you said about raising your children. I can’t wait to read more. Hope y’all have a great weekend. God Bless!
thanks for your chincoteague review! it helps tremendously as we are seeking a nice place to spend some days during the girls’ elementary spring break. our fourth grader has to do a scrapbook on the location.
I remember reading once a list of recommended children’s books on your site but can no longer find it. My sister and I just want some multi cultural books for her boys. If you can find it that would be great.
Thanks for the blog, my sister and I reference it for good ideas quite a bit.
Received your card today….great shot of the kids!! We leave on Sunday for a trip, with Bob and May Garofalo, from Orlando to New Orleans, Houston, San Antonio, Phoenix, Palm Desert, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon before heading back to Orlando and back to VT on March 26th. Looking forward to our adventure!! You can follow our exploits on Andrea’s blog @ Two Whits on the road. She’s new to this, just having received her new, first every, ipad. Will be interesting.
