One Day at a Time...

Thought you may enjoy a glimpse of our past few days...

For the girls it has been dress up every day.  The first couple days we were awaken by the girls fully dressed, primped and ready to go at 6:00 AM!
James and Papa have enjoyed some t-ball and catch...
We've had a few successful naps here and there.  We are attempting to establish early afternoon quiet and/or nap time... one day at a time...
We are so thankful for our back yard and little play area.  It has been a big hit...
God also blessed us with cooler temperatures upon our arrival as to minimize the drastic culture shock from Ukraine to hot Mississippi...
Titus is getting the royal treatment... popsicles...
The girls love to play in their high heels and dress up clothes.  Wonder when this will wear off?  What will the teenage years behold...
Tony took James to a baseball tournament game at USM.  He stuffed himself of peanuts...
Everyday is Princess party... Poor big brother endures the girlishness...
Playdough and sidewalk chalk are our friends... Even Titus has been dressed up with pearls...
James loves to climb everything...
We are thankful for God's abundant grace to walk each day.  Apart from Jesus we can do nothing - John 15...

Wow! They all look so great! Having lots of fun learning about their new home and family. Your dog Titus sure looks like he is enjoying his new playmates. :) Are they beginning to use English with you a little? I would imagine they would speak amongst themselves still. Do they speak Russian or Ukrainian? When we went to Kazakhstan for our daughter we were told it was 50/50 she could end up knowing Russian or Kazakh depending on the region we were assigned to...She spoke Russian. :) Thanks for the great update.

Glad to see everything is going well,
