We had the BEST time yesterday! The Kids loved every minute and I think that our new friends' kids did too!!
So, they have a multicultural home, and have the same issues that we do-- It did just a world of good to be able to sit and talk all afternoon about "the kids" and what they do, what we do, what works, what doesn't work.... It was all good.
We shared lunch and dinner with them, and just had a ball in the middle. The kids played games, played ping pong (until it got too cold) played guns...and did hair--new braids for some!! and ate and ate!! All great- ;) The nest plan is to make Ethiopian food!
As they live just under an hour away from us now, we plan on doing this ALOT-- Being in the adoption world, it just does so good for the Ethiopian kids to be around acting and reacting with other Ethiopian kids.
