Sunday Snapshot: Our New Sons

....well at least until January 28.  We are hosting two foreign exchange students from Guangzhou, China.  All American adoptive parents have to go to Guangzhou to get their child's US visa.  We were in their home city in November 09.
Anyway, Kevin (his American name not his Chinese name) just turned 13 and Gordon is 12.  Some of the children in their group are only 9 years old.  I couldn't imagine sending Jordan by himself to another country next year.



The boys were so excited to see snow.  Guangzhou is about the climate of Florida.  We borrowed some snowpants and they excitedly went to play outside this afternoon.  They also went sled riding, but Stefan didn't get any pics.  Here are some pics of the boys playing in the snow.











Ni Hao Y'all
