Adoption - Sugar cane juice, kites, picnic, capivaras, soccer...

Our first few days as a family of 7 were pretty interesting. We knew very little about our new sons, so we spent a lot of time just hanging out and getting to know each other.

Slowly we realized that they had never really experienced many of the things that kids normally experience.  Things like family picnics, flying kites, playgrounds, etc.

We also realized that they didn't really know how to play in a healthy way with other kids, so though there was lots of joy, there was also a lot of frustration.  Every day we have been working on how to communicate well, play together without fighting, and thinking of others more than self.

Here's a glimpse into some of the fun things we did our first few days with the boys:
