From Age Three to Four - Sergei's Birthday

Sergei, Age 3, Aug. 2008, Artem Baby Home

Sergei, Age 4, Aug. 2009, St. Louis- Spiderman pose!

How much our little bundle of energy has changed in 1 year! He is reading easy books now, following directions so much better, showing lots of preference for mom and pop, and having an absolute ball being a Fritsche. We love him so much and are blessed that God has chosen us to be his parents! What joy and happiness he has brought to our lives!

His birthday celebration was so much fun. Joel's mom was here for his birthday and stayed 3 days. Other grandparents were missed but represented by fun gifts. Friends joined us for his meal and cake and presents. We got to see the St. Louis Basilica, eat at Fitzs, and have some adventure at Grant's Farm. Our little guys are tuckered out after the few days of marathon fun! More to come as Slav heads toward 6! Blessings to you all. May God be with you.

Joel, Clarion, Slav, and Sergei

Wow, I can't believe it's been a year already! God knows what He's doing when He has a plan! Not only are you blessed to be his parents, Sergei is blessed to have you as parents. He's so happy, it shows in all the pictures.
I'll show these pics to Aunt Sue--she's with us in Montana for a month.
