Today the weather was beautiful here and we were able to go to White Cloud Mountain. The story goes… White Cloud Mountain blocks the cold weather winds & acts as a shield,.. blocking the wind from coming into Guangzhou. Guangzhou is considered very lucky to have White Cloud Mountain. People come and hang-out on beautiful days like today. We rode the cable cars up to the mid-way point. (I was too chicken to go any further)
At the top.. we fed the birds..
Here’s a video clip of McKenna paying the birds.. ;))
Isaiah also had fun with bubbles today! He is so stinking cute!
Adopting an older child defiantly comes with its’ challenges. Even though Isaiah is 6 years of age his maturity level is that of a 2 year old. This is usually the case with kids that have been in an orphanage. We have to really watch him, ..every.. move.. he makes! That fear I had of him running away.. Yes, that has happened! But, I got my hands on him and now.. I have the death-grip on the little booger. He’s like Ninja fast & he never slows down!
There is also a lot that he doesn’t understand. Like,.. don’t step out on the street.., don’t flush the toilet 6 times,.. or don’t put things in your mouth! I promise you.. we have said NO at least 1,000 times a day. I don’t think all the books or videos in the world could have prepared us for this. Nothing like hands-on experience! Even though we are having our challenges, none of us would change having him for nothing in the world! We love him so much & have become so attached in the few short days that he’s been with us. He makes us laugh everyday & we have decided who he reminds us of.. Curious George!! lol!!
