Max's luggage finally arrived around 9:15 on Monday night. He was a very happy person. Too bad the kids went down to bother him while he unpacked! We are going to talk to the kids about smothering Max. He seems to be enjoying it, but he is also a very polite young man. I really can't call him a boy.
Kali was trying to help him pick out what to wear the first day of school. She was telling him, no that doesn't look right or this is too something... I told her to back off that there is a big difference between 12 and 17. Max does very well dressing himself without Kali's input. I know she is just trying to help him fit in.
Yesterday the kids went to the store on bicycles, then swam and played on the tampoline, did some archery, and played video games. Kole does not know how to take turns very well. he will learn.
Tonight is the kindergarten open house for Kole. We get to take all his supplies in so he can carry an empty book bag tomorrow.
I took the kids shopping on Monday. We went to Hollister, Abecrombie, Aeropostle, American Eagle outfitters, Subway for lunch, Best Buy, PetsMart, and Circuit City! I was beat! We were pricing electronics for Max. Now we are on a mission to find the least expensive way for him to call home to Brazil. Vivian had a calling card that her dad would add minutes to. Max purchased a calling card, but I think he needs more minutes added on.
We are also looking for a translator that translates English to Brazilian Portugeuese.
I know we will find one, but probably not in Springfield! LOL
We took Max to the school to register him and today I need to call and find out if they have something worked out so he can go as a senior and graduate.
Next week Max has auditions for the orchestra in Springfield. I need to call today to get him an audition time. I think he will enjoy it. He plays both violin and piano beautifully!
Last night while Kole was practicing football Max was making friends with some of the local guys that were hanging out at the park. It is good that he is not shy about making new friends. He will have a whole list of them before tomorrow is over.
Kali and Kaci are enjoying having a temporary older brother around more than I think they could imagine. It is so fun to watch them laugh and have a good time. Kole looks up to Max a lot! He really likes him.
