K's 3rd Family Day!!!!!

Today was a very special day....

3 years ago today, a scared, 14 month old little boy arrived in the United States with his new parents... 3 years later he is a happy, smart, and active 4 year old pre-schooler!!!

Last Thursday at pre-school, the boys decided they wanted to share their special days with their classmates... They took in red, white, and blue cupcakes, wore their Guatemalan soccer jerseys, they teachers talked about Guatemala and what Citizenship means, and they were each special helpers in their classrooms!

Today, we just let K choose where he wanted to eat for dinner...and of course what he wanted to eat... other than that it was a very low-key day.

But... here are some pics to take us down memory lane....

what a beautiful baby he was -- and a handsome little boy. he looks like a tinker toy on the airplane, yet looks big in the photo of your first night home. anyway, you must be proud of him.
