Spring Recital

On Wednesday evening the youth center on base held their annual Spring Music Recital. Approximately 25 children entertained family and friends with their musical talent showcasing performances on piano, guitar, drums, and vocals. Our own Nate was co-emcee. It was an enjoyable evening. Unfortunately Scott was off island and missed the show but I attempted to videotape the boys' each playing their pieces. Drew performed "Minuet in G" & "The Sailor" on guitar and Nate played "Minuet in G" on piano. Once Scott gets home we'll see if we can post those videos.

Do you think the boys look taller in some of our recent photos? This school year I made a conscious effort to weigh and measure the boys every other month. Here is the comparison from the beginning of school to the ending of school in their height:

Sept. 07 Height: 58 1/2 inches, June 08 Height: 61 inches

Sept. 07 Height: 55 1/2 inches, June 08 Height: 57 3/4 inches

Nate grew 2 1/2 inches in 9 months and Drew grew 2 1/4 inches. It's no wonder the boys never have pants that fit for church.

Adoption Update:
We have received our tentative dates as far as when we will be traveling, getting Lilymei, and having our ACS appt. I will post these dates soon but it looks like we will have Lilymei in our arms on July 28, 2008!!!! (Happy Birthday Owen!)

Hi Jean!

Couldn't find your email, so I am answering your question via your wonderful blog....Olivia was 14 months old on Gotcha Day. Be prepared for a variety of things including eating issues (Lala liked to store food in her mouth for hours...not good for teeth! She also liked to launch food at us when we fed her. Night terrors and screaming when buckled into car seats were also issues. ) Email me if you have ANY questions...Would be more than happy to help. Praying for your travel and bonding time. Oh, one more thing, Olivia did not stop crying after she came to us until I drew her a warm bath. 5.5 hours of screaming and the warm bath comforted her a great deal. To this day she loves bathing.
Hugs and Prayers,

What do you feed the boys to grow so tall? I want whatever they eat too! Nate is way taller than his Aunt Amy already and Drew has two inches to go! I teared up when I saw you may have your daughter the same day we had our first son! Miss everyone! Scott have a great Father's Day! Amy
