Update with the Conrads....

So... here we are... it's June already and the girls are two years old.  These two years have gone by so fast.  I just wanted to thank Rob for all the sacrifice and support through all these years.   It's much of a sigh of relief for him as well, as I'm finishing up residency.  It's been a long road for both of us, stressful, many all-nighters, and hundreds of examinations.  I don't think I will voluntarily sign up for any more of those anytime soon.  

Rob has been enjoying his time home with the girls, and will continue for some time once we re-locate to our final destination.  He's been so good with the girls, have taught them how to recite the A-B-C's, they can count to 10 in both languages, and sign language.  They are getting less shy around strangers, and the other day, Riley told me she was going to school.  Raegan told me she was going to work!  (I think they heard Elmo say it on one of their videos!) 

They ate banh xeo tonight and have really enjoyed both Vietnamese and American food.  They aren't picky.  I would say, they're favorite food right now are pickles and milkshakes.  They're favorite activity is to go to the zoo and feed the goats.  They talk about it everyday.  Although shopping is a close second, I think.  

I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive family... we have some important decisions to make, and where we'll end up moving to next month will be determined soon...with prayer and guidance, God will lead us to where we need to be... 

Thank you everyone for your continued prayers as well.  It means a lot to our family.
God Bless.

Papa Conrad brought this game... we didn't know how to play it, but we found that Grizz likes it a lot... Di Thuong and Cau Jeff, Thanks for making the trip out here to see us.  We miss Grizz... can we have him? (Just thought we'd ask)
Raegan loves to take pictures, so Cau Thai taught her how to use a camera....

Thank you cau Thai for the huge lobsters... It shipped to our house from the ocean... still crawling and hissing.... yummy...
