Attempting to take a picture of 13 three- and four-year olds is nearly impossible. The whole sequence of photos I took was pretty darn funny, but I'll just post the best ones. (i.e. all 13 kids were in the photo.) There was always one child running in or out or a mom in the picture as she ushered her child back in. Oh, what cute little girls they are!! And may I just say that I think all 15 of the kids (two siblings not pictured in the group shot) did amazingly well, especially considering this was during naptime for most of them.
Can you tell by these photos that I have a future "class clown" on my hands? lol
This is a "What were we thinking?" moment. This was even worse than the group shot.

Just some of the beauties that were there...
What a fun day!! And, to top it off, we get to see many of these girls and their moms again tomorrow morning for Chinese class and group photos for the 2010 FCC calendar.
BTW, thanks so much for all of your comments and support on my last post. I am thrilled to say that I was in contact with a friend of mine who met some families with children close to Leila's age that were also adopted from Russia. I am going to get their contact info and hopefully set something up. Maybe we can set up a larger group in our community, starting with these few families. That would be wonderful!
If I don't get around to posting any more this weekend, this photo reminds me to wish you all
A VERY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
