Mid-Autumn Moon Festival

We celebrated the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival in the back yard under the moon. We had meant to get to the Asian Market to get some mooncakes, but since that didn't happen, we substituted Moon Pies!
We talked about all of the people in Micah's life who look at the same moon. Micah's grandparents, aunts and uncles and friends here in the states look at the same moon, but so do his birthmother, foster mother and his friends from his time at the orphanage and foster care. We can take moments like this to feel close to all of them.
I'm not sure how much of it Micah understood, but he did understand eating sweets outside in the dark. That was fun!
