|Like Father, like Son|
It is immensely wonderful to be home, and we are working on figuring out a routine, discipline, love, and school.
Our first day home was rather hectic because Adam and Grace weren't feeling great, so we all piled into the car and headed to two different doctors. I honestly felt a little stressed that day by everything and by the language barrier and my desire to convey certain things, but God is faithful and was with me through my jet-lagged crazy day which ended with the blessings of signing Anthony up for soccer and dinner from a precious friend.
Our second day was great. We just hung out and tried our best to communicate and be a family.
We feel day three had some breakthroughs. We had several pouting sessions when children didn't get their way so discipline was effectively implemented in a gentle loving way (only by the grace of God) and was successful.
What does tomorrow hold? Our first attempt at school! Our precious boy really needs to get into a schedule so here we go. I have spent the last couple of hours putting together English flashcards, math drill worksheets and household guidelines (in English and Chinese). Am I nervous? Of course! But I am trusting God and His direction as He put homeschooling on our hearts.
Blessings to all and I am out!
Here are a few fun picks from our first days!
