Family Photos

Ava's first Auburn Game


Well, I officially stink at blogging!!! I am going to try and do a better job. Everyone is doing well. Ben is enjoying 2nd grade. He is in the cub scouts and he is also taking hip hop at school. They are practicing a routine with Michael Jackson's Beat It...I can't wait to see it! Peter still loves Kindergarten and he is really into Pokemon cards. In fact, he plans on being a Pokemon Card artist when he grows up. Ava is enjoying pre-k and she is doing SO well. Her teachers and therapists really think that she is going to catch up with her peers. In the last month or so I have seen so much improvement in her receptive language. I think her adenoid/tonsil/nut removal surgery has made a world of difference.

I have uploaded several pix from the summer and this fall to try and catch up...here they are.





This past weekend we traveled to see our China travel group for our first year reunion. It was so good to see all of the families and their girls. Everyone has is doing great and the girls were all adorable. I can't believe it has been a year.October 2008

Donna and Jim watch the kids during several football games in the fall. The boys
started having fall festivals a couple of years ago and it has really grown. This year there was a hay ride, a scavenger hunt, a pine cone relay, a maze and even a wood chopping competition.

That's a lot of catching up! It's amazing how much Ben and Virginia look alike. They truly could be twins.

And who needs a proofreader now? Muwhaha
