So Many Firsts!

First night in his own bed.  Home at last, safe and sound.
Grandpa Gillies came to meet Joseph!

Walking through Pike's Place Market in Seattle, Benson and KJ got so many weird looks.  In Uganda, it's totally normal for boys to hold hands.  We're working on this, but hated to tell him that this wasn't acceptable in the US as normal behavior.

Shawn "trying" to give Joseph a haircut.  It's a bit different than what he's used to, but he is getting better!
