One Week Behind Us

Today is Sunday morning for us and Saturday night for ya'll. Yesterday was our usual routine, going to the orphanage in the AM and in the afernoon. I think we have come to the conclusion about Nate, he does not do mornings very well. If we stopped walking around outside he would start to cry. His caregivers have spoiled him profusely. Alayna on the other had was jumping off the jungle gym into her fathers arms all morning. We have also showed her how to play hide and seek, except she is laughing to hard to hide and not be found. Our afternoon was fun with both. Nate is more enthusiastic at this time. As you can tell from our photos he will stop playing to eat. His only problem is that he will drink all of his milk at one time and have nothing to go with the rest. Alayna continues to be engrosed in her ABC's. We have one word of good news. Our court date is set for JUNE 12th. I know you all are saying, "Wow, that is Alyson's Birthday. What a great present". Well you are right. There are three more families coming in today to stay in our hotel. We will have more people to meet and socialize with. Right now we have breakfast with Annie from Raliegh who has adopted Lillie. Today we only get one visit in the morning from 10-12. We will have to find something to do for the rest of the day. Our hotel has a bowling alley, turkish spa room with pool, sauna, jacquzzi, and a work out center. I am trying to get used to hearing 300 tenge, which is really only $2.50. Hearing the hundred word scares you at times. We are also including a picture of the back side of the orphanage. Love to all.

Hey Aunt Alyson and Uncle Chandler,
My cousins are so cute, I can't wait until you bring them home!
Alyana does look a lot like from when I was young to even know. I hope you and Uncle Chandler are having a good time up there and I send you my love, and tell Alyana and Nate I love them so much! Can't wait until you come home!
