last sunday, we had the incredible opportunity to reunite choi boy with someone very special. cb's foster sister (his foster mother's daughter) is studying english in the states for a semester. and of allllll the places in the entire good ol' US of A, she ended up enrolling at a school an hour away from us! crazy awesome, right?! she contacted me through my blog and we set up an afternoon get-together.
we headed to a park so cb's foster sister, his noona, could hang out with him while he was in his element...i.e., we needed a place where cb could run around and get out all his sillies. :)
choi boy had tons of fun playing, climbing, peek-a-booing,
while using the smallest drumsticks ever, i might add!
and even iron-crossing.
eventually, cb burned enough energy and was able to slow down and hold noona's hand.
it was so sweet and beautiful.
noona's friend came, too, and of course, choi boy charmed both of them and had them wrapped around his little finger.
choi boy also took noona for a walk around the park.
cb showed her the lake and pointed out the geese! and ducks! and birds!
and after the tour, choi boy taught noona how to play football.
american football, that is.
she was very impressed. ;)
and after traipsing around the park, we headed to lunch, and the sweetness continued in the car.
noona wanted to try some mexican food, and cb decided this was a good idea.
a very good idea, indeed.
and after a quick lesson on the alphabet (when cb sees letters, he points and shouts, "G! G! G!" the only letter he knows...i'll give you one guess as to why. hint: super bowl champs!),
it was time to say our goodbyes.
or rather, it was time to say our "see you later"s, because you can betcha that we'll be meeting up with noona again soon! what a precious gift to be able to spend time with someone that helped raised our son for the first 15 months of his life before he came home to us...such an amazing blessing.
so, so special.
and so grateful for the way this all worked out! God is so good. :)
