We were the closest family possible. Our world was turned upside down on 05/03/09 when my best friend, the person I love most next only to our children, my sister Trina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Her body gave out on her on 01/09/10 but she will ALWAYS be a part of our daily life and will continue to be in my posts. I started my blog to chronicle our daughter's international adoption from Guatemala and have continued to use it as a journal.

What you will find is my family trying to adapt to our new lives that were handed to us.

An Education

First off I must say how much I love Ellen DeGeneres. Mom and I watch her every day and she never fails to make us laugh. She is so funny, kind, and just an all around good person.

Second, I'm giving Asa an education in U2.

I've had "Achutung Baby" in my CD player and we listen to it during the two minute drive to school. I told him this morning that I was schooling him in all ways U2.

Asa - No sissy! I won't do good on it.

Me - Asa, there is no test, I'm just teaching you about U2.

Asa - Oh. Ok.

Me - Asa, this is one of their best songs ever to see live.

Asa - I thought you said the other song was the best song ever.

(This shows he's listening to what I taught him last week)

Me - Yes, that was "Ultraviolet". That and "One" are their best songs ever. But this is one of their best songs LIVE. This one is "The Fly". Actually both "Ultraviolet" and "The Fly" are great live but they built an entire tour around this song!

Asa - Where?

Me - When they toured.

Asa - But where?

Me - They went all around the WORLD!

Asa - (mouth dropped open)

And then we got to school.

I don't have a lot of time to teach him but by the end of the school year he should know the whole CD :)
