The Last Week or So...

A week ago Friday at the boys' school, a singer came to entertain the kids. The younger kids all had a blast. I was not able to catch them but JiaLi especially enjoyed hanging out with big brother Joseph and dancing with his friends. We caught it on video but the video is way too long. The Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk was last Sunday. I walked the beginning with my neighbor, and then Joe met us at the 13 mile point with the 3 kids to walk the remainder with us. I was so proud of them. They did such a great job and had such a great spirit. There is Jenise and her friend crossing the finish line. I did offer to hold Danny's hand;) The boys just have not been able to get a soccer game in this month. Well, they played one but otherwise they have been rained out every Saturday. Jenise on the other hand is playing on the travel soccer team this year and they, so far, have played no matter what. Here she is today warming up, but it began to rain so much the photos were not clear:) Finally thank you Secret Buddy for the most recent gift and thank you for your patience with our process. I came home Thursday all excited because there was a message from the Social Worker helping us. The message was letting us know that they have not forgotten about us and that they are hoping to start a class by the end of September. (September 30th is Tuesday???) They need to find someone to teach the class because she is not teaching it anymore. I wanted to ask what was needed to teach the class!! I know, patience, prayers and lots of deep breaths. Secret Buddy, this is such a great gift. You have the best ideas! Thank you. O.k. this is a silly add on. I am reading all the updates on my DH's travel mates blogs and reading about how the girls have gone to the dentist. Had to share that JiaLi went to her first appointment on September 3rd (I did not bring a camera) and I was so proud of her. She was a nervous wreck the night before but pulled through. Same thing--no cavities. But...when she bit down...way out of line..looks like future mouthwork. Jenise is going through some right now--she just got a palate expander and then might need braces on her front teeth.

I love the fact the kids walked too, that is amazing and something to be proud of.
I am so glad you took the time to share some pics with us.
Sorry about no soccer right now for the boys... We haven't had rain in quite a while and none in the forecast. we need a little...
So glad JiaLi was cavity free, that is great.
I hope the classes start soon!!!!!!!

Woo Hoo! No cavities! I know my two little ones need to go but honestly I also think it would completely traumitize them! I need to be tougher!

My two big kids played on select travelling soccer teams. We were younger then and I have to say that I pray Lottie and Emma don't play sports! LOL

That is great about the dentist visit! Liana hasn't gone yet. I'm using your comments and the others that have already gone, to prepare her for the visit.
I love all your pictures and updates!
Take care, Patty & Liana
