Thanks to Aunt Jenn for bringing the tiara and pink boa! The girls have loved wearing it. Beti even said that she wanted to wear it to church. I told her I didn't think so. The bikes have been a big hit and great exercise. Pray that Spring comes quickly or we will have some very upset girls - can't bike very well in the snow!
Transition ~ Nardos has learned what "no whining" means! She is very dramatic. She has the best giggle and can pout with the best of them. Beti is beginning to express herself more. She is putting together simple English sentences and loves to tease her sister and brothers. All in all we are doing very well.
The girls are going to start school on Monday. It will be three weeks after landing on US soil and Beti is definitely ready. She really wanted to start today, but the new quarter starts Monday, so we are going to wait. Nardos is not so excited about going to school and would rather stay home and play. The preschool that she will attend is going to allow me to come with her and stay as long and as many days as she needs. I was thrilled ~ not all schools would allow that! Nardos is definitely more clingy to me, which equals attachment. So, as hard as it is to carry her often and be with her most of the time, I know that I am building trust with her. Beti has really attached to Bob. Yesterday, every time the door opened or phone rang, she would say, "Daddy?" When he came home from work, she hugged him around the neck. So sweet.
