precious moment

…looking outside to see the 9 year boys taking turns pushing their 11 year old sister around on THEIR own bikes. And then looking outside a little later to realize she’s GOT IT!

  1. Can I come live in your tree or something … I wanna see 🙂

  2. I haven’t been commenting recently, Mary, but I am here, and watching these girls settling in is such a joy! I am with Kelli… I wanna see too!

  3. love it! (sorry so behind…we’ve been without power for days due to the heatwave here…)

  4. Now those are wonderful pictures! What a sweet moment!

  5. Wow! I am totally impressed. Our 9 1/2 year old Ethiopian daughter is rather afraid of the bike and in the almost year since she’s been home has still not learned to ride it yet! I’m going to share your daughter’s success with her and see if it causes a bike epiphany!

  6. LOVE it!

  7. Sweet kids!

  14. How very sweet. Love the pics.

  15. Wonderful inspiring photo! Love it! Now if I can just get my 14 yr old to quit pushing the 6 yr old off of his bike, they’re so violent! Thank God for helmets!

  16. This is a comment for the 9-6 post on your adoption blog (sorry I’m too lazy to register over there….)

    I so admire your girls — I’ve had quite a few experiences in foreign countries, and it is nothing short of utterly EXHAUSTING to be faced, day after day, with a language you are just learning. Not to mention all the other things to adjust to, but the communication challenges on top of it — so tiring, and sometimes discouraging. I’m glad it’s coming along for them.

    When I read about them trying to tell you stories but not having enough words, I thought, maybe you could jot down as much as you can decipher, and save it to remind you and them and hopefully get the full story later. I’m sure you’ve probably thought of such things.

    All the best.

  17. How sweet to see such kindness among your kids. 🙂

  18. I love that she’s barefoot!

  19. Oh, how beautiful. That brings tears to my eyes.

  20. Awww, that’s just priceless!
