Auntie Fran this post is for you!

I had a very important message from my Auntie Fran via my mom that my most important priority right now should be my blog!!So forget this messy house, Mount WASHmore and cooking, I have a blog to update!! By the way for those of you that don't know her my Auntie Fran is ONE of the sweetest, kindest, gentlest people you will ever meet. I have so many fond memories of visiting her, my Uncle Tom and my cousins over the years! You will always leave their house with a full belly and a jar of her wonderfully canned pickles in your hand!

Where to start? Well, Micah went fishing and caught a 17 lb striper and he was SO stoked!! Bert and the boys joined a hunting club so I see a lot of free weekends in my future.

We had to make a trip to the Eye Foundation ER because Sophie got poked in the eye when one of her brothers was playing with her in the pool. She got a really nice shiner but all is well.

Jax went to the adoption clinic for a check-up and gained 2 pounds..whoo hoo! I think I gained 4.
They are very pleased with the progress he is making thus far.

My friends have come over with their kids and they swam in the pool and then played in the mud in the pond. They love catching tadpoles and squishing mud in their toes.

Jax and Sophie started Chinese school this past Saturday. Sophie absolutely LOVED it!! Jax was more reserved and shy but they both did great!

We started school last week. The kids are doing great so far. I am doing Abeka Kindergarten math with Jax and we do several pages a day, I hope to finish the book in the next few weeks and move on to the first grade. For language we are just doing alphabet flash cards and the sounds. And of course a lot of reading, the kids take turns reading to him everyday. Sophie does counting, workbooks and flashcards and she will start 5k in September. Tyler and Micah are both going to CORE which takes a load off of me and they really enjoy it. And EG has her schedule full here at home. So far we are off to a great start! Have some pretty cool things
planned for this year.

I forgot to add on my past post about things Jax says. Well, we are Pentecostal and our church is very loud and exuberant. When it is time for church I tell Jax, "It's time for church..hallelujah". He says, (in the most hilarious accent) NO HALLELUJAH! He likes Sunday School but he is still getting used to the church service part!

I for one, think you're doing a pretty great job on your blog. I have yet to post any real substance since Khloe's been home. I should be working on that instead of reading right now. But I sure do miss catching up on all of my bloggy friends since we've been home. Can I tell you how wonderful it is to see Jax home with you!?! He has the sweetest smile! I love the brothers photo (the last one) that you sweet to see them together. And the church story was too won't be long and he'll be HALLELUJAHing along with the rest of you!! ;) Way to go on getting started on schooling already... you are a super-mom!!

Blessings and Hugs to all of you! <><
