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.

Nailed It!

I've been teaching the kids how to tell the difference between U2, Kings of Leon and The White Stripes, my three mainstays on my iPod. I don't listen to the radio so all we have during the 3 minute drive to school is about enough time for one song. They have become quite good and Valentina is making great progress given that Asa has two years of a headstart.

The other day Valentina was home sick so it was just Asa and me again. I kind of miss those mornings of just the two of us but I also love taking and picking up both kids every day. Anyway, I warned Asa I was going to test him with a song. I put on Jack White's version of U2's "Love is Blind."

Asa paused at the intro, did what I have taught him and listened to the singers voice. About 30 seconds into the song he said "hmmmm.....the SINGER sounds like The White Stripes but the SONG sounds like U2."

"YES!" I exclaimed. I told him it was a cover song (he's very familiar with The Killers version of U2's "Ultravoilet") and told him he nailed it!

I'm so proud of my little music maestro.
