Adoption Week: Day 1!

Adoption week is here!!!  And we are excited.  Due to the timing of other holidays, Adoption Day will be right in the middle of Adoption Week, instead of at the end.  Which means that it will probably be a little different than it has been in the past.

It also means that in just 2 days (TWO), everything will be completely official.  And then we can just relax and par-tay!

This morning, to kick off Adoption Week, we went to breakfast at Panera with my parents and brother.  It was a good start to a very happy week!

We were pretty excited...

I'm normally pretty strict about what kind of nutrition we start our days with.  Fruit, yogurt, whole-grain-non-packet oatmeal, and occasionally some healthy cold cereal is on the typical breakfast menu.

Excessive sugar is not.

I know, I know....not a popular stand with the kids, and I have received zero "fun mom" points.  I am, however, immovable on the subject.  Except for today.  Today, to start off Adoption Week, they got to choose whatever their little sugar-loving hearts desired from the Panera menu, and they were ecstatic.

Andy chose a cinnamon roll as big as his face (which, thankfully, he could not finish and therefore didn't), and Isaac chose the only thing on the menu that had a filling in his favorite color (cherry pastry).  They had a blast!

So excited for the rest of the week!  Especially for Adoption Day on Wednesday.  It's still all a lot to take in.  But I'm having fun trying.  I love those boys!

Two days.
