So I haven’t written in a while and I had promised I would finish posting about our time in the States. And I will…eventually.
We are busy here playing catch up and getting back in the swing of things. I am subbing at the kids school and that has been great. It is nice to have a purpose and it’s a great way to get to know the kids and the teachers better.
The kids have done well getting readjusted back into school and a regular schedule. After school activities have begun. Sloane is playing volleyball and cooking, Benson is playing soccer and Blake is doing karate. The kids are strengthening friendships and we are working on having more play dates.
Benson has been having a hard time lately. He has made some sweet friends but I think that in his mind he should have friends that are as close as the friends he had in Memphis. I keep reminding him that those friendships took years to develop and he needs to be patient. I spend a lot of time praying for the right people to come into his life and also for guidance myself. This was a hard age to be moved to another country. And the school here is great but it is very transient so the kids are used to other kids coming and going so it really takes effort to make strong connections.
For now Sloane and Blake are doing well. Luckily they don’t all have trouble at the same time. More updates to come.
