The following morning in preschool, they were exceptionally excited. Although I have felt "at home" for most of my time here, this time it felt different. It was just this overwhelming and peaceful feeling of belonging with my sweet babies.
This week we also had the chance to celebrate Thanksgiving together as a "family" (complete with our Beijing turkey). Although the kids were not involved in the actual meal, it was such a blessing to have them as a part of my Thanksgiving day. Being away from home on this day was harder than I anticipated it would be, but getting to see their faces throughout the day made it not seem quite as sad, and for that I was thankful.
Here are just a few shots from the week...
