Our weekend






















Well I'm not going to pretend that I wasn't apprehensive and a little scared about the trip to Indiana.... trapped, okay let's be nice and say "in" the car for 6 hours with a 6 year old and 2 and a half year old. It went well. Outstandingly well. If I had to give Will a grade it would be an "A+." Now Miss Grace (who is the queen of traveling), gets an "A+" too. There was no crying, tantrums, whining or any of those not so positive events that happen on a long car trip. For William it was his first time sleeping overnight in a new place, and we stayed 2 nights. I came well prepared with entertainment and food products. We spent a large part of Saturday with Dan's mom and William was polite and very funny. We went out to a park and had a picnic and of course did lots of playing, made some new friends and enjoyed the early Fall weather. 2 little kids can sure make a mess in a hotel room, I almost took pics. I kept comparing this little trip to our trip in China. William is so much calmer now, and genuinely happy most of the time. He really is a character. Progress continues every week.

The pictures are great and the news even better. Isn't it awesome how you can see Will's personality unfolding before your very eyes.

I found with both adoptions that 5-6 months was a huge change and the 11-12 month mark was an amazing difference. I have seen changes in Ethan this month that are so wonderful to see and we are 11 months in.

Hugs!

PS I hear ya about the messy hotel room..LOL
