Not to Be Outdone...

When I posted Annika's artwork last week, Marissa immediately ran to the school room and created a blog-worthy piece to share.

This is a drawing of William and me picking up our children in Ethiopia. We are the light-skinned figures to the right of the page. The purple-clothed figure is the woman at the transition home, and she is handing us our son who is wearing red. The ever-hopeful Marissa has also included a pink girl just in case they decide to let us have a girl too!

Marissa is 7 and loves to draw! I think she'll be some sort of artist and a wonderful mother someday!

This is just a funny... Tonight at dinner, I actually had to say, "Get that bread stick out of your arm pit!"

Merissa did such a great job. I like her idea of a sister too; If only it worked that way. What a gift to give your your littlest one some day!

With Love,
