PREPARING FOR HURRICANE ELEANOR


PREPARING FOR ELEANOR
Originally uploaded by Dennis&Terri.
With only a couple of weeks to go before we leave for China to meet Eleanor and bring her home, things are bustling around here. A new fence is going in by virtue of the hard work by Keith Rauh; Dennis will install a new sand box very soon (if he can figure it out -- naturally, Terri ordered the coolest, most sophisticated and most complicated sand box on the market); the scene generally resembles Athens scrambling to get ready for the Olympics. Also this week we received some additional information about Eleanor from the orphanage in YouXian via the Chinese government and our agency here in the U.S. It seems that she was discovered on the steps of the post office in YouXian one day after she was born -- her date of birth was provided in a note found with her. She was wearing yellow clothing and a white cap. We believe that she was loved very much and that the decision to give her up must have been a very difficult one. She seems to be happy and healthy and developing normally. According to the translated report, she likes to play with her toes while on her back and "gets excited when she sees her bottle." Not as excited as we will be to see her ...

I don't think she will be able to clinb over the fense for awhile. Loved the hydrangea, or is it a peony?
