(She was SO excited to finally be going!)
(Matt leading Lele to the water against her will)
(Sam is as close to family as a friend can get, so she had to be there)
(Here's proof that I was there too! The saddest part is I didn't even get a little tan)
(She kept saying, "The water tastes like fish!" and "Look, garbage!")
(Matt, Lele, and my mom)
(Lele wanted a jumping picture, but they couldn't get the timing quite right.)
It was a fairly successful day. She was absolutely terrified of the ocean, but we're hopeful that over time we'll be able to help her with her fears of water. We have a ton of fun introducing her to new experiences. It's also such a blessing to be able to learn about her culture as well. She cooks us meals, and is teaching me how to speak Chinese! We wouldn't trade her for the world. God really blessed our home when He brought her into our lives.
