Care package #4

Posted On: Thursday, April 8th, 2010 at 7:13 pm

Wow! I can’t believe we sent a 4th care package! We shipped it off last Wednesday, March 31st. It’s so much fun, and more importantly, a great opportunity to prepare Min Jiao for our family. We’ve sent a letter (in English, Chinese and pinyin) and pictures with each package. We’ve also sent something to share–stickers or candy. Here are the contents of the March package:
– letter
– pictures of rooms in the house, backyard, dogs, kids
– spa stuff: nail polish, lotion, bubble bath and fuzzy pink slippers
– spiral drawing thingy (what’s that called??)
– disposable camera
– pink stuffed lamb (for Easter)
– Easter candy to share
– stickers to share

For those who know me, I always have a million things to say! And it’s no exception with our new daughter. There is SO MUCH I want to tell her! But, I have to remind myself that she’s only 7, and I need to take it slowly. To assist me in this effort I made a list/chart. (Yeah, yeah, me and my charts and lists.) Anyway, I made a list/chart to keep track of what I want to tell her and when. I’m trying to spread everything out so I don’t overwhelm her. Anyway, in this month’s letter I told her a little about Easter, a little bit about our house (to coordinate with the pictures I sent), and about… her new name! We really hope she likes it. 🙂 (Oooh! A cliff hanger! See next post. 🙂 )
