Elaina was so excited for her first day of Pre-School.

She is always asking for both bacon and sausage and she can only have one or the other so today I let her have one bacon and one sausage along with her eggs and grapes. She ate ALL of it.

Elaina LOVES blue and I found this adorable plaid jumper that has blue flowers on it. Everyone thinks it is her school uniform. It sure does look like what Mommy had to wear going to Catolic School.
Showing off her pre-school bag that she helped me decorate with Ariel and hearts.

Elaina got to be the first SPECIAL HELPER and bring snack. Here she is standing by her classroom door holding her sncak of cinnamon bread and drinkable yogurt.
Elaina hugs her Teacher Ms. Mary!!


We had a wonderful weekend at Tan-Tar-A with 43 families who have all adopted from Guatemala.
The major highlight from our weekend besides seeing old friends and making new friends was that Elaina and I got to meet the family that had the same Foster Mother as us and we got to visit via webcam with Alyeda our Foster Mother in Guatemala. She cried tears of joy when she saw her Princessita and the Dunbars children. We got to see her whole family and we visited for a long time. We can't THANK Susan enough for translating for us and setting it all up. We plan to do it more often to stay in touch.
Elaina and Mommy pose by the bear in the restaurant in our MOGUATE shirts that Mommy designed.

Oops-forgot to flip pic.
Susan and I took the girls bowling for the first time. Elaina makes the cutest scorekeeper. Group shot of most of our Guatemalan Blessings!!!

I am holding Elaina-she did not go down the slide by herself-you just can't see me.

Can't wait for next year!!!!
