I wanted to list some things our family has done or accomplished while waiting for Jack. This is my first list.
We have painted Jack's Room. Even John, who hates to paint, helped some.
Here is the color now.
Our daughter has learned how to ride a bike with no training wheels. This is good so that her two little brothers can ride in the bike carrier. For bike rides to the park or pool next summer she can ride her own bike. Not bad for 4 years old!
We wrote a welcome note for Jack on our driveway for the neighborhood to see. Yet I don't think many people did since it rained the night after we did it. But the kids were proud. In the picture was Jack's Korean name written in Hangul, and the South Korean Flag.
Then my daughter wanted to do her own. So this is her (creative 4 year old version) of the South Korean Flag and her brother's name in Hangul. I was very impressed!
My mother and I have gone fabric shopping for Jacks quilt. She has done one for each grandchild so she is getting busy on Jack's. It will be a puzzle piece quilt. These are our fabric choices so far. We will see what goes or what stays or what is replaced once we have a finished product.
I also have purchased some artwork for Jack's room. I fell in love with this print I saw on another child's wall and had to get one. It matches the room so nicely. I do however need to purchase some new glass for the frame. It broke when I was putting the print in. I was so sad since I had just bought the frame with a 50% off coupon that day, but John says glass is easy to replace. That is what I needed to hear. I love him!
