we have a bike, and some other little updates
Hi family (and friends),
just thought I'd give you a little update on our life here in Itacare. We bought a bike and we love it. All of the streets are cobble stone so it's not super comfy but oh well, at least now Enzo gets to school much faster. I love that we're walking distance to everything and love it even more now that we're a quick bike ride away to everything. Except for church. Arghhh, I hate that church is so far away. All I can say is that I've never appreciated the priesthood as much as I do now. Christian does a good job at blessing the sacrament and passing it out to us on Sundays. He also does a good job at making sure we're all spiritual enough. We wear our Sunday best, though lately we haven't been wearing any shoes to our Sunday home church.
I kind of look pregnant in the picture above though I can assure you I am not. As far as the adoption thing is concerned we're still just trying to learn more about the whole process. basically we're just asking a bunch of questions.
Speaking of babies, Baby Maria is a big girl now. She's saying all sorts of things, it's pretty funny. She's not feeling great these days because she's been sick with a stomach bug, the same one I had last week where I thought I was going to die.
Enzo loves school and he also loves not leaving the house. Last Saturday we went on a hike and he was complaining the whole time because all he wants to do is stay home. When he's home he wants to work on his workbooks, read books, or do math flash cards. I'm not really sure what to make of it. He misses his friend Junie a lot. He also misses Gio and Zeke. He always talks about Gio and Zeke. last week I made snickerdoodles and he really wanted me to save some for them. I was finally able to convince him that it was going to be impossible to save them snickerdoodles. Then I told him the story of how Kaity made the first snickerdoodles that I had ever had and besides Kaity is the queen of sickerdoodles, I'm sure Gio and Zeke get wonderful snickerdoodles from their mom. Then Enzo was sad and wanted wonderful snickerdoodles from Kaity.
In other news Enzo has another loose tooth which is always exciting.
Maria also really wants a loose tooth.
My mom is coming to visit us for a month, so is my uncle, and so is a bunch of other people. Yay! I haven't spent Christmas in Brazil since I met Christian, who showed me that Christmas in Hawaii is way better. We don't have any real traditions and my family doesn't do gifts. I'm not really sure how Christmassy our Christmas will look like but regardless I'm still excited to have my mom visit us for a month.
That's it for now.
