Sawyer's school days

Sawyer enjoyed his days of preschool here in Virginia. As you can see from the picture he still likes to flip bicycles over to spin the wheels and pedals. We are leaving campus tomorrow around 11:00 a.m. to go to the Richmond airport. We'll be flying from Richmond to DC to Austria to Macedonia. For those of you wanting to get skype, our skype name is eric.jill1. Also you can find me on facebook:) We'll be staying in a hotel for several days before we pick out an apartment. I'm not sure when we'll be able to use the internet but I'll be in touch as soon as I can. Love you all!

Going to DC

We are all finished with training now! Yeah! Today we are going to DC with mom and Wes. We are hoping to visit the mall of museums.

Yesterday we went swimming and Sawyer sure was enjoying that! He was kicking his legs and doing a pretty good job of moving around. He was wearing water wings (swimmies). When Eric went to Target to buy the swimmies the only colors they had left were girly colors:) So it was funny to see Sawyer wearing purple swimmies with flowers on them.

Sawyer's speech

The speech pathologist met with Sawyer today. After she spent time with him she met with me so we could discuss ways I can help him. It was incredibly helpful! I learned many practical easy ways I can help him improve his speech, everything from playing with whistles to eating stale gummy bears:) I can fill you all in on it more later. The great great news about his speech is that he can make all the sounds except the /l/ sound, which is very normal. We're very encouraged about this. We will be going to DC tomorrow.
