Reece's Rainbow friends

It's been great to meet up with other Reece's Rainbow families while we are here. It is certainly a great remedy for homesickness. We have been crashing the Emberg's place, since they have internet and we do not. They invited us to stay for Uno which turned into a game that was a combination of Scrabble and Balderdash---i.e. make up your own words but enlighten the rest of the group with your own made up definition of the word. Definitely a better way to play Scrabble!

We met up with the Embergs and MacDonalds, two other couples here to adopt special needs kiddos. It is nice to be around other people who don't think you're crazy for bringing more children into your already somewhat-crazy family. :)

Can you tell which group was having the better conversation?
