Catching up!

We have had a busy month!!!!

We started homeschooling three of the kids in January (5th grade, 3rd grade and K). Ethan is finishing up his Freshmen year at the high school. The two youngest are still in preschool. We are really enjoying homeschooling! Heidi and Isabelle even accepted Christ. What a blessing! We will homeschool Spencer and Riley next year. Ethan has not decided what he is doing yet. Here are a few photos.

Ethan is keeping busy with Scholar Bowl and Band. Ethan and Devin are still active in Boy Scouts. Devin, Heidi and Isabelle are participating in Upwards. They are learning a lot! I am playing volleyball (no pictures of that). It has been so much fun!!!!!

We took a mini-vacation to St. Louis a few weeks ago. We went to the zoo, Science Center and Planetarium. We are studying Astronomy - so the kids really enjoyed it! We loved the hotel we stayed in. We really liked the continental breakfast.

We also enjoyed the Year of the Dragon (Chinese New Year) by visiting one of our favorite Chinese restaurant.

Today was a "snow day" for Ethan! The other kids worked on a few subjects. Then we baked cupcakes for Valentine's Day. After that, everyone bundled up to play in the snow. It was so much fun! However, I didn't get any pictures because my camera decided not to work!!!

We are still waiting on our LOA from China. We are on day 50!!!
