Merry Christmas!

I feel like such a blog-slacker! We are preparing for Christmas: wrapping presents, baking cookies, cleaning house, decorating, etc. This year is much calmer than last year. Things have gotten better with the kids' behavior in the past 2-3 months. Yanmei and I are bonding and getting closer. Jiujiu seems to be in a holding pattern with bonding, at least with me. Yanmei and Jiujiu are in the same class in school and it seems to be going well. Their English is improving and they are learning alot in their classes, even if they don't think so! Yanmei made the basketball team and she is excited, but also nervous.

Abby is in her school's chorus and they had a Christmas concert recently, they did so well! The five songs they sang were lovely!

Emily's reading is getting better and her teacher is so impressed with her math abilities!

Brian is doing well in kindergarten and is quite the goofball in class. Even with his "goofy" tendencies he is getting mostly green on his behavior chart so I'm happy.

Please continue to keep us in your prayers.

Merry Christmas!!
