We were able to fix the pool and the kids had their first swim this afternoon. It was a bit cold, but L, C. and K didn't mind too much. E. went in for a few minutes and his teeth were chattering pretty quick. He really liked running through the sprinkler and watering plants with the hose or watering can.

I took E. to the Social Security office today to apply for his first ss number and card. It will arrive in two weeks. In a few months we will go through a readoption process and change his name (it really isn't Elijah) but he is already a US citizen and has our last name. We are choosing to do a readoption so he will have a US birth certificate. He has a Haitian birth certificate now. He should get his ss card in the mail in a few weeks, and then when we have his name changed we will have to make another fun stop at the office to update them.
