This is a picture from our first day attending Preschool in America! We are going to our church's Preschool- Silverdale Baptist! Evie Joy's teacher is "Aunt Rebeca" and Josiah has Ms. Tami! Our of the first 4 classes, Evie Joy spit on, bit and kicked her teacher- she is a regular at the front desk. Josiah, on the other hand, when working on a homework assignment said his favorite thing to do is give hugs and kisses! Ms. Tami says he is eager to please :) He is just working on space issues (of course coming from China!)

Evie Joy loves Ni Hao Kai Lan so we had a Ni Hao Kai Lan/Chinese Birthday party with water fun! WE had noodles to eat because in China you eat noodles on your birthday for a long life!
We had a lot of Popsicles to eat! yummy!
We had water balloons- Daddy told all the kids to throw them on their parents!
We kept throwing them on Mommy (but they'd bounce off and break on the ground ha!)
This is after Evie Joy got MiMi!
We were loving hanging out with Randy mid-party! ha! love it!
an attempt to blow out my 3 candles :)
Everyone sang Happy Birthday in Chinese and English!

This is a Whole LoTA pictures of our visit last month...really i didn't know which ones to categorize, so i just lumped em all together! that away it's all up here to remember and i can move on...it is September, I've gotta get out of August on this blog! yikes! America! It doesn't really motivate me to blog so much but since i print these for the kiddos i better keep at it...sorry if our American adventures aren't as interesting as life overseas...but we'll be back there in a few short months! Now, we are enjoying lots of friends, familiar food, space, sunshine, church (we go like everyday! it's great!), English, parks, grass, family...it's really such a gift to do everyday things here in the states after being away!
Josiah and Evie Joy love staying at Grandma's house!
an attempt to get a picture with Charlotte (1) dressed in their Chinese dresses!
little Evie is a sloooow eater like Big Evie! We were like oh who is going to be the slowest at finishing dinner?! haha! Evie Joy was hilarious about Grandma- she said Grandma went to the doctors not because she is sick, she is just old, too old! Then Gma came home and Evie Joy said Grandma you aren't old anymore now! Ha! Grandma got a big kick out of that!
I love this one where Evie Joy is rubbing Grandma!
