It’s been a fun week with Sarah in our family, albeit it challenging one (due to cultural, sibling, time zone adjustments). Our first week together at home included Halloween.
One of Joleen’s concerns as October neared was that we might miss Ethan’s first experience of trick-or-treating. Ethan was with us last year for Halloween 2008, but we did not venture out of the house.
As it turns out, we got home four days before trick-or-treating was observed here in Clearfield, PA, so we were here for Ethan’s first time out. And because we have Sarah now, she got to join in the festivities as well, though she stayed at home with Grammy.
One note about Thomas the Train — Thomas & Friends is *huge* in Korea. It seems everywhere we went, there were Thomas & Friends products. We brought home a sweatshirt (with Thomas, Percy, and James trains) for Ethan as well as training chopsticks (with Percy on them).
Well, I used to think it was challenging enough to get one child to look at the camera and smile at the same time. Now, it’s even more challenging to get two kids to look and smile, all at the same time! 🙂
