Anna and Lydia's tests (passed with flying colors!)

We had taken Anna and Lydia to the hospital for tests a few weeks ago. Anna for her kidney reflux, and Lydia for the lumps in her right breast. While waiting for the results, we decided to take James 5 seriously, and believe as children. So we invited a pastor and his wife from Xin You Tang over for supper, and after a nice time together, they annointed Joji (asthma), Anna and Lydia with oil, and prayed heartfelt prayers for them. Well, we went in to heart the results:
Anna's reflux has corrected itself
Lydia's tests showed no ovarian cysts or other abnormalities
Thank you, Lord! Amen.

Love these ladies

As for Joji and his asthma, we will wait and see.

These pictures reminded me that I haven't documented the blissful days of Sara Ayi and Evelyn's visit. Coming soon....

Feels better

I have finally taken it upon myself to change the colors that Joseph and Anna chose. Aaaah, feels a lot better. :)

One month ago today, my husband lent his birthday out to his kids.

They took turns putting raisins and pine nuts on the cream cheese icing.

Lydia had her share to play with and eat.

They blew out the candles.

They ate the carrot cake.

Dear Ken was only along for the ride.

We love you, Baba! Thanks for having a birthday for the kids to enjoy! Next time, I ought to cook up a huge pot of pork foot with bitter melon on the side.
Come to think of it, that 5 and 3 could just as well belong to Joji and Anna.

Psalm 23

We got this idea from a fellow homeschooling Mom: Simply read through a chapter and have them repeat verse by verse, or every few words. It's amazing how fast they both memorized Psalm 23 in its entirety! I think it was after 4 or 5 sessions (each session, they read through the chapter 4 - 5 times). We are setting up milestones and rewards as we go.

Water Science

"Mom, we're doing science!", was Joji's eager explanation of what went on in the pictures below. Of course, his assistant is always at the ready to .. assist.
