Three Years Home

It's Sissy's Family Day today - well, as it's after midnight, it's now her official adoption day, but I received her on July 16th three years ago. We had a pretty fun day. It was a normal work day for me, but afterward, I picked up some Chinese food that's very authentic - as in pretty much what we had when we were in China, not the American version of Chinese food that's smothered in thickened sauce. Then, My Firefighter called us up and invited us out to get some frozen yogurt at a real frozen yogurt place, a first for the girls. This was very nice because Sissy was sorry that he couldn't come to dinner with us. He and I decided on some rules and I explained them to the girls on the way (only 2 toppings!) and they did very well. If you're reading this and don't have adopted children who spent time in an orphanage, you might think rules for getting frozen yogurt are odd, but making choices is very hard for kids like mine, especially when there are tons of choices and tons of people bustling around. So, getting frozen yogurt was a success overall and topped off our Family Day celebration perfectly.
