October is Ending

Well only one more day in October, seems like another month just flew by.  We should be experiencing fall weather, however the daytime temps have been above normal more than half the time.  The chickens are growing and now giving us some great eggs we are getting about 3 to 4 a day (very colorful too as you can see in the picture).

Being October we are now quickly approaching 1-year since we brought Lauren home and 6 -years since we were in China to bring Hannah home. We just took the picture of mom, dad, and Lauren today and have to gather a few pictures from the last couple months for the 1 -year update that goes to China. Life with Lauren still has its challenges, although she does not have the degree of reactive attachment disorder that we dealt with in the past, she has attachment issues that we are working on. On the bright side she did say last night she loved us and knew we loved her ! One thing I know we discussed before is that Lauren definitely did not have the degree of schooling that the paperwork stated as we have had to go back to very basic school items with her. Chinese writing is so intricate and more difficult than English and Lauren has trouble printing her letters unless she is tracing them.

Some pictures from this weekend:
