Off to school...


don't you just love her purple poncho :)

This morning as she headed out the door on her way to school, I just couldn't resist taking a photo of her! I still can't believe that there is a chance that we could be returning to China within the following week for our second daughter, Annabelle! I still can't believe that we are going back to Francesca's birth country with Francesca in hand and how much my little girl has changed since our last journey in November 2005. I am truly looking forward to this next chapter in our lives as parents of two daughters both under the age of 4 and only 27 months apart....

(in case you are wondering...no...we still haven't received our consulate appointment date, but our agency is still saying that we could be leaving as soon as the 16th. My nerves are shot...seriously shot!)
