Where...

did January go??!! Can't believe we're already near the end of the month, and I missed a lot of blogging days (bad, bad blogger). It seems I've been playing catch-up...so the trend continues...

The girls made fudge one snowy afternoon. They had to honor traditions and lick the bowl clean. :-)



Max loved wearing the cook's hat (from fudge making day). He paired it so stylishly with some flower leis (that big sis Emily wore to a Hawaiian birthday party).



And then some shades...




Allyson's class did a study on immigration. The entire 6th grade did a re-enactment about Ellis Island, and each student was an immigrant. Allyson portrayed an 18-year-old young woman named Pirkko from Finland (a young mother and seamstress).

In other school news, all 3 girls made the honor roll at their respective schools. We are so proud of them! They continue to do well in extra-curricular activities as well.

Max continues to adjust well. He has moved up to his big boy room/bed full time (even for naps!). We started potty training, but quickly stopped as I realized he can't even pull his pants up/down by himself. :-( We will work on those skills some more and then start again when we're both ready. Max's speech continues to amaze me. He talks just as well (if not better) as other kids his age (& he's only heard English for 7 months!). I think the most amazing part is that he always uses words in their correct context, and with the right feeling behind them. (note to self: kids are always listening to what we do/say, and they repeat those things! lol).

Last week we had the pleasure of meeting the parents of our dear friend Chun. Randy met Chun in Shenzhen China during a business trip. A few years later, Chun moved to the US to work. She is now married and expecting her first child, so her parents came to help with the new baby. We look forward to getting to know them better in the next few months.
