Yesterday was Norahs first day at daycare by herself. Well first two and a half hours anyway. We went to get her after two hours in case she was having a bad time. When we walked in she was happily doing a puzzle on the floor with the teacher and the other kids. They told us she did great, didn't cry and played with the other kids like she had done on the days when we took her for a couple hours and stayed with her.
Brandon went to the same daycae when he was little so he wanted to come with us to see his old hangout and see his sister off on her first day at daycare alone.
After we picked Norah up from daycare we had to get the slab ready for the new air conditioner. Can I just say ouch! I didn't realize air conditioners where SO expensive (having never bought one before). Norah was very excited about the cementand grabbed her own pink shovel to lend a hand in the mixing.

Norah running around the backyard. I'll explain the headband later.
She is a big helper when it comes to working inside or out. She carries plants, digs in the dirt, loves to water, and pulls weeds without being asked.

Our 6th Annual Love Without Boundaries "Born in my Heart" Art Auction is soon to go live. This year’s auction is set for April 23-28, 2009 with April 1st as the deadline for donations. For those who may not be familiar with this event, the “Born in my Heart” art auction is our tribute to the miracle of adoption, and a benefit for orphans in China who might never know that miracle without our help. Last year’s auction was a great success, raising over $35,000 and making it possible to help heal the hearts of many beautiful children! The Love Without Boundaries Foundation is an all-volunteer organization that has helped over 400 orphans receive life-changing surgery in the last year. Heart surgeries are always the most expensive, costing up to $5000 per child. They are also the most essential by far, as they truly give the gift of life. We would like to invite you to visit our website to read more about our art auction:

If you find yourself in the position of your child attaching to only one person, remember it's a work of love. You can't let your feelings get hurt and give up. It does start to pay off with time.
Lori and I came home to the same family members, home, cars, ect. Everything in our lives that we found comfort in before we left for China was here waiting for us when we got back. Everything in my dear daughters life is new.
