Sauvie Island with the Parris Family

We decided we needed to do something touristy in our new hometown. So we headed out to a farm on Sauvie Island with our friends, the Parris family.

Kaleia's "First" Haircut

Kaleia's hair, unlike her sister's, has not been fast to grow. I think I trimmed her bangs once in China because I was cutting Maggie's and she really wanted a hair cut too. This is the first official one though where I actually needed to even it out a bit. I still hardly took anything off. I'm a little afraid she'll lose her curls and she is desperate to have long hair.

Self-dressed and Accessorized!

Self-dressed for school, even accessorized!

Though we've got to figure out how to convince her to put her shoes on the correct feet.

Report from the Playground

"Today, when I was on the playground, I heard crying. I said to myself, in a quiet voice, 'That sounds like Kaleia.' So I went to find out. It was Kaleia and her leg was stuck on the slide. David -- the kid David -- David the kid tried to help her get her leg out, but he couldn't and Kaleia cried louder. My teacher Patricia came over and helped Kaleia get her leg out. Then David showed her how to do it."
