Yesterday morning it was just beautiful here so we packed up early and headed up to Signal Hill. It is just beautiful up there and Rafael had so much fun running around and playing. Hopefully our good weather will continue although today it is rainy, foggy and 5 degrees. Oh no!!

Also Deborah and her son and husband are now in the Philippines picking up their three girls from the same orphanage as Rafael. How exciting!!! It is going to be great having another Dorcas House family here in Canada. We really hope that we can all get together sometime down the road although we are a 3.5 hour flight away from each other. Maybe next summer!!

Rafael's speech has really exploded over the past week. He looked at the screen saver on the computer a few days ago and he said "that's me!!". He then pointed to the computer screen and then to himself. What a smartie pants!! He also will repeat several new words when we say them. This stage is soooo much fun!

The Bruins won last night so they are headed to the Stanley Cup final. Hurray!!!!! I can't wait!!

love those shots of Rafael on Signal Hill...sigh...I can't wait to go back to Newfoundland...the beauty is breathtaking!

Your team played a great game last night...even I (not a bruin's fan) was on the edge of my seat! Looks like it'll be a great series to the cup!

I'm just getting caught up on your blog. I'm SO happy about Deborah and fam! Thx for tipping me off to that news.

Your little Rafael is such a cutie. I love all the photos you post. He is doing so well and has a smile that clearly lights up the room. I hope you get more warm weather so you can spend more time outside. Ella LOVES being outside.

One of these days we'll connect with you guys in Canada, too. We're thinking of visiting later this year but only to the West.

Jen (in Cebu), we'd absolutely love to meet up with you guys at some point. We are also hoping to get together with Deborah and the girls sometime as well. Whenever you are heading to the east coast of Canada, let us know. I'm really hoping that other kiddos from Dorcas House will be adopted by Canadian families as well. Take care!!

All of his facial expressions are just priceless!! Too cute!
