Life with Lydia

The girl can trash a clean room in 10 minutes!
This is a page from Emilie's Kind. class book. They were so sweet to keep up with our adoption through the blog. Lydia got to visit them last week.

Lydia LOVED it!!

Aunt Von came to see us at Aunt Cheryl's.
What a great day!!! Thanks for coming down Von!!!

It takes a village....
Lydia LOVES her extended family! She is always blowing kisses and waving at them to let them know she loves them. (Allowing them to hold her is another story) She took her first road trip to visit in South Carolina. She traveled pretty good... but I wouldn't want to head out alone with her just yet. :-) Our first night was rough... she cried like she did in China and I was sure I had made a huge mistake. Thankfully by morning she re-booted and was happy as a clam for the rest of the visit.
She even began to cry for Uncle David when she thought he was leaving. There's an old saying that "kids spell "love" "t-i-m-e." If you want our girl to give you the time of day, you had better have LOTS of time!
School is out and as usual we busier than we want. June is the busiest. We have a Kid's Crusade, Camp Meeting, Tennis Camp/Vacation, Youth Camp (for the boys) and summer basketball for Jason. July is not much better as we really hope to visit grandparents and Jason has a mission trip to Peru. Not to mention Cheryl's move to Texas! (insert heavy sigh)
School starts Aug 3... how in the world am I supposed to leave such a sweet baby with someone else all day while I go to work?
Remember us when you pray....
Oh... almost forgot to tell you Lydia has 4 new teeth coming in. ALL AT ONCE!!!! Still not walking... but close!

Too cute! Wow, your summer sounds as busy as ours! We start swimming lessons tomorrow, dance recital this week, VBS somewhere I hope, a cruise in July. AND I am hoping to find a job for next year. You should take off and go back the following year. It is certainly worth the sacrifice! Hope to see you soon somewhere!
