Wow, really just four months since these kiddos entered our lives?
Four months since we were in China . . . or four years.
I can't believe the progress ~ plain and simple we have become a family.
As Cav has gotten better the gap has closed between them and she is now struggling with her place be threatened. She is no longer the "golden" child and he the terror. They are becoming more equal and we are seeing her having some difficulty with this. In addition, her most beloved teacher left during spring break. I think the permenance of this loss is finally affecting her. She is taking her different books out more - but mostly the one her teacher gave to her before she left.
I hate to say it, but I really didn't even correlate her mild change in attitude and her teacher leaving until today. It's been almsot 3 weeks and I thought the reaction would have been immediate. Duh, sometimes I jsut wasnt to kick myself. Ok myself and the world. i bawled for FeiFei when I found out her teacher was leaving. REALLY PEOPLE!! But what was I to do, withdraw from her school which she begs to go to everyday. Such a horrible situation, for a sweet child who has already lost so much in her life.
Luckily, the Empowered to connect conference is tomorrow in Denver. I can (at the last minute) go. Hopefully they are still selling tickets at the door. And my dear hubby is taking the day off work and staying home with all the kids - oh yeah it's a teacher work day ugh so they are ALL home!
Four Months ~ as a Family!
