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.

School Frenzy

I have at LEAST five good, solid, funny posts partially written but the one that's taking center stage right now is the one that is going on right now. 

Today is the day before school starts. I did great this summer. The kids are horrible to take clothes shopping so I was super smart and did all the back to school clothes shopping online over the summer. This way I was able to show the kids only the clothes I liked and scroll past any kitten head ones (yet another post). Just now the kids each pulled out all of their new clothes to figure out what they are going to wear tomorrow.

I guess I didn't do THAT great of job over the summer since Valentina has only one new pair of shorts and all the ones that I had bought Asa, the ones he liked when they were first delivered, have somehow changed shape, color AND fit because now he doesn't like them.

What did I say earlier?

The kids are horrible to take clothes shopping

Guess what I'm getting ready to do in about 5 minutes.

I'll be the mom wrangling two kids who hate clothes shopping, are very picky, have no patience and I'll be losing mine very quickly also. Of course we're on a time limit too since we have to be somewhere in about two hours.
