This Year’s Family Theme:
Chad gave each of the boys a father’s blessing after dinner. I kept dinner very low key, but it was super tasty (a recipe from my sister Lindsey and everyone loved it), and the evening was calm and relaxing. Everyone got to sleep at a good time and up in time for a good back-to-school morning.
I walked the boys into their classes on Monday. Gabe was very nervous and got a little teary-eyed, but as soon as he was given a task to complete, I saw him relax. I am sure that hearing and speaking Chinese has to be a big adjustment after the summer off, and both of them have been handling it well.
Gabe has the same 1st teacher that Colin had for kindergarten, and I noticed she had them color the same picture when they first came in.
