Yesterday was the 8-year anniversary of Shen joining our family. It was 8 years ago that he and I met for the first time in China, and what a blessing it has been to our family to have Shen as our son and Connor's brother. I thought i would just post a couple of pictures to show how much he has grown. One picture is from his green belt testing for Karate and the other is on a 6-mile hike in Rocky Mountain National Park that we did in August.

Memorial Day Weekend, 2012 - A big time for Shen! It was this weekend that Shen and his dad went on a 2-mile bike ride.

What a fast summer this has been! After a brutally cold winter, and a short, very wet spring, we hit summer hard. Shen had a great summer. First, he went with the Brewer family to Florida (while mommy and daddy spent their 10th anniversary in the Tetons). Then, the family went on an Alaskan Cruise, where Shen saw a Lumberjack show, 11 whales (both Orca and Humpback), panned for gold, and got to pet some sled dog puppies. Once back from Alaska, he went to soccer camp for a week and had a GREAT TIME (Please see the attached picture).
During the entire summer, we realized that Shen's hearing had gotten worse, and sure enough, he had to have the tubes re-inserted. So, in early August and just prior to school starting (August 15 - really early), he had tubes inserted in his ears. You can see the attached picture as he was leaving the hospital that morning.
School has started, homework has started, and the temperatures are falling. Life is Great!!
