School is here!

School finally starts this week.  The summer was very busy and fun, but I think the kids are ready for school.  We did so many fun things this summer.  Went on a road trip, went to the beach, horseback riding, camping, swimming in the ocean, lake and river, roller skating, parties galore, youth lock-ins, youth lock-outs, bowling, wow what else I can't even remember.  Needless to say it was fun.

I hope the boys don't expect this fun to continue throughout the school year:)

The boys are ready for school but I don't think the school is ready for the boys.  They have never had someone come in from China with little english and in one case, no education.  We have had many struggles, meetings and discussion to make sure they get what they need and deserve.  Please pray with us as we begin the year that they will get everything they need.  I will fight as long as I have to to advocate for them.

They are amazing young men and have been a blessing as new additions to our family.  We just celebrated our 3 month anniversary together.  Titus's english is amazing and Adam has learned alot even without any past english training.  He has a long way to go but is eager to learn.

Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support -we are blessed to have each of you in our lives whether it be in person or cyberspace:)

Hah, liked the sentence,
"The boys are ready for school but I don't think the school is ready for the boys".
We had three boys start school as well over the last few days and I wondered the same thing, lol.

Blessings,
