Flashback Friday

While listening to the radio today, I heard the weatherman say that today is "frigid Friday". We are having very low temperatures outside, and the windchill is currently 0. It reminds me very much of a February three years ago when it was so cold and icy that school was called off...for a solid week. I was tearing up a little bit this morning, remembering that week, when Patrick and I were completely iced in at home...

We had been working on our home study, but still had a pile of work to do. Our social worker wanted us to hurry, since things in Korea were picking up and she wanted to send our home study to Korea in March. The ice storm hit, and ice on the road was unbelievably thick. We took advantage of the fact that we were iced in (for several days!) and worked hard on our home study. At the end of the week, when school returned to session, we had completed all of the work that we'd needed to do. What a blessing-in-disguise! Though we didn't know it at the time, we mailed the packet to our agency only two days before our son-to-be was actually born.

And of course, thinking of this reminded me of how tiny our Eli was when he came home. Some of you will recognize this was taken very shortly after Eli came home. He was about 19 months old, wearing 9 month size clothes. He was only saying two words : "oma" and "mam-a" (mam-a is Korean for food!).
