March Weekend and Other Happenings
Shamrock Shake, Irish Cream, and Irish Car Bomb
You want to know something?
I ate all three and I didn't share!
They were good!
Spring is Here!
Irish Lamb Stew
And a string of Shamrocks
The other day, I got an e-mail from my sons English teacher stating that our son had submitted a poem to a magazine for publication and it if we would give our permission they would like to publish it. I was just about floored because my son hated this assignment, and if I remember correctly a few tears where shed writing it. I believe he may not have gone to bed until two in the morning. While he enjoys reading, he does not like writing and if he had his way would clearly stick to all classes that point towards engineering. I am proud. Maybe their is a little Irish poet in him after all given my side of the family come from Ireland.
The Kaleidoscope of Colors
Crimson, yellow, blue, and green
Dancing beneath the golden light of the moon
They move with elegance
The heat pulses towards me
Blankets me from cold
Mesmerizing, comforting, calming
Like innocent children
We are naive
A blanket of warmth now gone
Destroys, ruins, and raze
Innocent lives lost
Dreams, homes, memories
Now we remember
Who has the power
Addy is now going to therapy for her feeding issues. She has been diagnosed with sensory integration disorder. She is hyperactive sensitive to things like textures, touch, and noise. While she will taste just about everything swallowing it down is a different story. She eats less than a bird.
We have been invited to go to Greece this summer for a wedding. I so want to go. We are still thinking about it! I am crossing my fingers.
Winston went to see Oz the Great and Powerful with his Nana. He really like it! I am still on the fence on whether or not I want to see it. The original always scared me. I hated the flying monkeys.
This week I watched a wonderful documentary called Somewhere Between. The movie is about 4 or 5 different girls who have been adopted from China and their journey finding their place in the world. Parts of it were heartbreaking; especially, when one of the girls discusses being abandoned. I am trying to prepare for the day when our daughter will have questions about where she came from.
Today I really enjoyed our 75 degree weather. It was so wonderful not to have to wear a coat today. Well, it has been a long day and I am off to bed. Tomorrow we will celebrate with some friends the adoption of their baby. A leprechaun trap will be made an if we have time some green play doh with gold glitter, and we are still patiently wait for our documents to get logged into the system in China. Just got word our documents left today for china! Yahoo! One step closer. So excited! Have a great weekend!
