The cutest video!

I've been wanting to post this video for all of you for a long time now but only now have we gotten around to it. Hey, I'm a busy mommy now!;)
Anyway, our oldest son turned 4 while we were in Russia. We were able to celebrate it with him at the orphanage. His birthday was also the Russian holiday "Men's Day" and they were practicing a little show that the children were going to perform later that day. I don't know what they were singing in Russian but the dance that Roman and his little girlfriend did was so adorable. He has been asking about her every day now, especially after seeing this video. We have inquired about her with our agency. I hope and pray that she is being adopted but if not, we might just have to go back for her.;)

Post Placement Blues

I can't believe it's time for this already! Our 6 month post placement report is due in August. Our social worker needs to come to evaluate us in the beginning of July in order for it to be done in time. So now I am filling out paperwork once again. Arghh! I was so enjoying not having to do paperwork. I've been so lazy with it, I haven't even gotten the boys' social security cards yet! And of course the whole thing needs to be apostilled! I hate apostilles!!!!
The boys also have their first colds so we're all cranky. :{

Fun in the sun!

The boys love to be outdoors and busy at play. The days when we stay home are generally not fun and there are many time-outs. So, we go out every day for a little bit. We recently had a play date with some friends at the water park. Boy are our kiddos loving the water! Roman is doing so well with swimming, a few more weeks and he'll be swimming laps on his own.=)

Daddy and Jadon had a blast going down the water slide!=)

Jadon has been doing much better in the pool as well.

We recently purchased a very small boat. It's been one of Chris' dreams to raise his boys on the water. Needless to say they have fun!=)

I leave you with 2 more pictures of my goofballs!=)
