Thank you for all of the wonderful responses to the question about naming adopted children. There is still time to leave your input either as a comment, or by email:

I will compile your responses and post them all later this week. I love seeing what you all have to say. If you haven’t read the question yet, here it is:
I’d love to hear more about naming your kids?? We’re trying to decide that right now. We’re thinking about new American first names and their ET names for middle. Mostly because, thinking of the future, the boys name on a resume might be hard. Thought an easily pronounced american name would be better. SO, you don’t call your boys their American names? Is that their choice, or yours? We’re also thinking of doing the same for our daughter, so she won’t think, “why did he get a new name, and not me?” Oh the decisions!!
Thanks for any pointers & viewpoints!

Don’t be shy – share your thoughts.
Ladybug and Honeybee made bird feeders in their science class and hung them in our dead peach and nectarine trees. We’ve been meaning to cut the trees down, but they haven’t made it even close to the top of Russ’ To-Do List. The benefit to dead trees is that, without leaves, we have a clear view of the birds who come to eat at the feeders.
Lastly, I want to write about a successful parenting experience we had today, but rather than tack it on to the end of this post, I’m going to post it separately so it can be tagged with the “My Learning Curves” label so somebody else who needs a new idea can give it a try.
