She's in love with the boy

A friend of mine posted a picture of a song that her daughter wrote, which gave me the idea to post a poem that Kristen wrote. She is always writing notes, poems, drawing pictures, making cards. There is a boy who was in her Kindergarten class last year, but this year she's decided she really likes him. Bless her heart. It says

Roses are red, violets are blue
I think you are cute Sawyer, I love you
I think I'm falling in love with you. From Kristen. To Sawyer.

This particular poem was written on a kleenex :)

A few weeks ago we had dinner with several other Guatemala families at McDonalds and the kids were able to play in the indoor playground. They had so much fun!!

Teddy Bear Sleepover

We're still here. I had surgery on my thumb 3 weeks ago and it's affected me a little more than I thought it would. It's still painful and swollen, but it's not stopping us from keeping busy and having fun. Friday night the community center had a Teddy Bear Sleepover, and Kristen took her precious Sho Sho. The kids took their bear (or whatever stuffed animal they had), and stayed for a couple of hours for pizza, crafts and games. Then the kids all sat around a lady who read a bedtime story, then the kids all put their bears to bed and left. But they didn't sleep for long...the bears got up and played all night.

Here's Kristen with another little girl and their bears.

Sho Sho and friends playing on the exercise equipment.

And playing checkers.

And he was so exhausted when he got home that Kristen put him to bed to catch up on his sleep.
