Summer is my favorite time of year. The smell of the ocean, the promise of roadtrips, and lazy days make for a perfect recipe for summer, and if you are like me you are spending much of that time outside. As many of you who have been following me for a while know every Wednesday I participate in what's called Corner View. Cornerview orginally started by Jane in Spain and now continued by Francesca in Italy is a weekly participation of bloggers from around the world where we share our view from our corner of the world. Each week we have a theme. This weeks theme is Away. Corner view took a break for the summer, and so I thought while many of you know our big news many of my corner view friends haven't heard the news-We have a baby. We were referred a file of a little girl on August 19th and we accepted. Her name is Xin Jing and we will name her Avery Elizabeth see this post for more information http://travelingbugwiththreeboys-kelleyn.blogspot.com/2013/08/our-baby.html. I also thought I would share this adorable video we have with the rest of you! I can't stop watching it and I am busy preparing for the day when we can fly over to China and pick her up! Welcome back everyone! Can't wait to see what you have been doing over the summer.
