As she nears the end of the school year in May we are gearing up for Summer camp and the fast approaching first day of Kindergarten at St. Joseph in August. She is excited, and we as parents are just floored at how fast time passes. It seems like yesterday we met her for the first time in Viet Nam. I hate to think about the day she heads off to college. She is already told us it will be Oklahoma State and her roommate will be Emma Keller! Ha! That should be interesting.
February was filled with birthday parties and trips. Trish and I went to Costa Rica for a week to attend a friend's wedding, while Sophie stayed with Mema and Granddad in Oklahoma. Modern technology like Skype and Facetime allowed us to see and talk to her each day. Remember when I was at camp as a kid and the only way to keep in touch was writing postcards and getting care packages. Those were sweet (especially the care packs) but nothing like seeing the smiling face of your kid on the screen of your phone or laptop.
Art and music seem to engulf Sophie as her hobbies. She excels in school and has been attending a Kindergarten level reading and writing class since early January and her teachers say how well she has adapted.
Looking forward to posting more good family times as we move into April!

Our poor attempt at a heart. We love you Sophie!
