Interesting Story

I found a link to this video on another site - It is a little long - but if you have the time it is an amazing story about an amerasian child in Korea.

Here is info about the man telling the story:

Rick Smolan is the co-founder of the America 24/7 and Day in the Life photography series -- and a natural storyteller in many media. His latest books are America at Home and Blue Planet Run.

Click HERE for the video. (It is about 25 minutes long)

Playing School






There was no school here on Monday - when I got home from work the kids were in my bedroom playing school - Jessie had put Claire down for her kindergarten nap. Claire was actually laying there. The other kids were in my bathroom doing their "homework". I don't know why they were in the bathroom - I think they are just weird.
The other pictures are of the new house - I included a picture of the spray foam insulation in the garage - This along with the ICF walls in the rest of the house should make the house very efficient (or at least it better!!). The landscapers started on the retaining walls in the back of the house. This week the drywall is finished in the garage and is going up in the rest of the house.

House Update #103






Here is another house update - They have started installed the cement siding and PVC trim. The rock is going up around the porch. They put the gas fireplace in this week and are starting to sheetrock. Next week the spray in foam insulation is going into the garage, the rooms that need soundproofing and in the 2 exterior walls of the house which are not concrete. It is really starting to look like it may eventually be done. I love the red siding - As long as it doesn't look like a barn when it is done I will be very happy. Don't be frightened by the children in costumes - they will only hurt you a little if you don't give them candy. Since Halloween they have eaten about 6 pounds of candy and I am fairly sure that they have 12 pounds left. They have been trick or treating amongst themselves almost daily since last week - who says Halloween can't last all year.

Language Barriers


I love listening to Benjamin learn English - actually I love to hear him for a while and then some peace and quiet would be good. His favorite thing to talk about right now are "Superzeroes" and "Ninja Turters" - Every time he says it I say "You like superheroes and Ninja Turtles". He just continues to say it the same way - It is so fun! I would like to mention - that I am sure that when I try to speak Chinese - It is laughable also!

Kendell and I saw Fireproof today - It was excellent - I would highly reccomend it - It is a great movie for couples to see together - I give it 2 thumbs up and 4 stars - If you haven't seen it yet - you need to go!!!
