We left for a 8 day trip to meet up with some of the families we went to China with, and for a family visit in Kansas. Long delayed flights and even longer car rides made for a tired girl!
August 3, 2014 marked our 5 year anniversary of adopting our sweet girl. It was so good see the families we went to China with and how much their little ones have grown.
After 4 days in Branson, Mo we drove to Kansas to spend time with family.

Yes, this is the 5th child I have had in braces. Thank goodness they are separated by years and years!
Except for Jeron, who's still got his on, for a few more weeks.
Jadyn needs her palate expanded, so her teeth won't hit. She has to wear an ugly contraption at night while she sleeps. This should correct her bite in about 12 weeks. She's thrilled about the 4 pink braces on the front teeth!

Jadyn decided she would like to take Tae-Kwon-Do classes like her brother Jeron.
She had to memorize the "Student Creed" by her 7th class, then recite it to the class and instructor. Once that is done you get your first belt. She nailed it!
Proud of this kid!
|She's a white belt!|
|Getting her first belt|

|Last day of 1st. grade. 6-12-2014|
She had a great year of learning. She is a school loving girl!
|First day of 1st grade. 8-2013|
(yes she does have the same pink shoes on, my girl hasn't grown much this year. I have a feeling she's going to be small, she is only in the 10th percentile on growth charts.)

I was served breakfast in bed and given sweet gifts made by my 2 youngest. Jadyn had to sing in a Mother's Day service for her Chinese language school. The chalk note on the driveway wishes me a Happy Mother's Day and birthday.

|Her first trip to Disneyland 2 years old|
We spent Spring Break in California at Disneyland.
We all had a great time. The weather was great, the crowds weren't bad, We were able to ride all the rides we wanted and then some.
We spent 4 days there and logged 35 hours in the park.
|Jadyn loved it, she defiantly felt the Disney magic!|
|Kisses from Minnie|
|Take out Chinese food!|
|On the Pier in California Adventure|
|Merry Go Round fun|
