con/gra/ju/la/shuns

A few weeks ago, I was giving a tour to a group of visitors at the foster home. We went into the preschool shortly after the nannies had finished their afternoon English class with the interns. Each summer, we are blessed with so many interns and volunteers that we're able to provide our staff with simple conversational English lessons - often centering around topics that the nannies wish to discuss. Usually it's things like "Please take the child outside." Or "Can you take him to physical therapy?"

But on this particular day, I quickly realized that Jacob and I had been the subject of the English lesson. 

Why?

Well, I saw this written in large letters across the board:




Wondering what we have to be congratulated for? 


Well, the other side of the board fully explains the mystery.


We're 4 months into a journey that's going to turn our world upside down...
Come Christmas-time (or about), we'll be McKean, Party of 3.
