Where does the time go...

Hard to believe that we have been home almost 6 months with the kids and are meeting with our Social Worker on Friday to submit our next Post-Placement Home Study.  The trip to meet them seems like only yesterday and forever ago all at the same time.  They just fit so well into the chaos at Casa De Clark that it seems they've always been home.

The kids all had a blast with all the fun and activities from the Fall and Winter.  Christmas was a big hit for them and Santa wasn't too bad either (they both sat on his lap multiple times)  I think they liked the fact that each time the big guy in the red suit visited they got a present so he was ok in their book.

We've been thru most of the preliminary medical testing.  Some we need to follow-up on and other have dismissed us from care.  We've had some surprises along the way and are working on figuring out treatment options and testing where necessary but it will all work out, always does.

Their personalities are staring to really shine and boy oh boy are they something.  Marin and Tristan have really taken to each other in a "twin like way" much the same as William and Jocelyn did.

The  little ones started pre-school in January and are enjoying it very much.  They ask each day if they can go to school and have fun.   Them liking it makes it much easier to get 6 kids out the door and to their schools each morning.

We can't wait to see what the next couple of months brings with our brood.  They keep us on our toes and we sure do have a lot of fun.
