tap tap tap... is this thing on?
After a crazy few months I finally feel like I am back to a place where I might be able to resume blogging with some kind of regularity. Our family has undergone a pretty big change since just before Christmas. We are now the carers for a little girl who could no longer live with her family. So our recently expanded family of four is now a family of five!
The changes have happened very quickly but quite smoothly and she is becoming more and more settled every day.
Molly has started school this year which is a wonderful excuse for us to lavish attention on her. We were very aware that she may have mixed feelings about welcoming a new family member however, starting school has given her a great focus and we have fussed over her in a big way. Mol is absolutely loving school! She is going to an IB school that has a Vietnamese bilingual program (6 hours a week!) and she is coming home every day able to speak more and more Vietnamese words. She has only been there two weeks but already knows how to count to five, sing a song about butterflies, can say sit down, listen, quiet please, walk, teacher, hello, goodbye and more! I am learning from her in this process which I love!
Richie is nearly one! Where has that time gone?! I feel like I was pregnant yesterday! I think I will do a separate post on Richie. I'd like to record a little about his first year and have it separate.
That'll do me for now. I plan to be back soon to chat about a few things I have on my mind...
