Jesse's 1st time roller skating!

While waiting on Claire we are having lots of fun keeping busy! You can tell Jesse is concentrating by the tongue hanging out of his mouth!
Jesse refused help & skated for the first time ever...all by himself! Notice the mechanical arms...
Mom had fun as well!!

Home here I come!!

Jesse walking home from school. I wasn't supposed to be here I think but I snapped some pictures of him coming home. The teachers walked all the kids to the end of the street & he crossed the road to all the waiting moms! He did great! It was so hot & he did great lugging that huge & heavy backpack.

Way to go on your 1st day Jesse!

More picture of Jesse's 1st day of school. He had enough school supplies for all of us to carry! He was so excited to finally use his new dinosaur lunch bag!

Off To Kindergarten!!!!

Jesse on his first day of kindergarten! He was so excited to meet his teacher & new friends. He was waving to all the buses & crossing guards on the walk to school. Our little boy is growing up!

Update on Claire

Hi everyone. He have heard from the CCAA (the Chinese Center for Adoption Affairs) this week. Of course they are still sending out referrals at a slow pace, but they just moved to a new office in Bejing, so we hope next month things speed up. IF things stay at this rate, we wll get a referral (Claire's picture) around November & travel about 4-5 weeks after that. IF things speed up as hoped, it will be sooner!!! Pray for sooner!

Until then, we are keeping busy with Jesse beginning Kindergarten & soccer season starting up as well! I am going to try to be very involved with Jesse's school as that will help pass some time. Well, I'll post pictures next week on Jesse's 1st day of kindergarten so stay tuned!

Keep Claire in your thoughts & prayers!
