I have been so overwhelmed with pictures, but I finally went through some and posted. I still have some more to add, but for now here are some pictures from some of the things we've been up to! :) The first couple are from the circus on Saturday! Mom and Dad took the little kids and they all had a blast. It sounds like Kate was just glued to the acrobats. Saturday was also the last day of soccer for AC and the last day of volleyball for Gracie. They both had little parties, AnnaClaire's being a costume party. (She was little red riding hood :)) She got the hairbow award for "always having the coolest bow," so we all got a laugh out of that! :) Gracie and AC were both SO proud of the medals they got and they can't wait to start basketball soon!!!!
There are also some pictures from Mon*key Joes, which Mom and Dad took the kiddos to for AnnaClaire's birthday. They all had so much fun, as you can see. It was the perfect way to spend our big FIVE year old's big day!
And then there are some pictures from the pumpkin patch, which Mom went to a couple of weeks ago with her friend and Miss Sarah Mei. The camera was on a weird setting, so the pictures aren't great, but I was able to fix a couple of them and make them look decent! Each kiddo picked a little pumpkin that is now happily displayed on our porch!
So that's that. We are all doing well and hanging in there! Today marks 4 months since we've been home from China and I cannot BELIEVE how far Gracie and Charlie have come in these months. They are understanding and communicating so much more than we would've imagined this soon. It really is amazing! Charlie had his appointment at Shri*ners today and they did a lot to see exactly how to treat his feet. He has one more appointment in December. It looks like he will be getting surgery and then be in casts for 12 weeks!
A lot of people asked what the kids thought about Halloween... they loved it! They might've been confused at first, but Grace and Charlie both caught RIGHT on and were loving running up to all of the houses and saying, "trick or treat!" All four of the kiddos were so cute and we really had a fun night!
I'll post soon with some more pictures that I need to catch up on :)
