September is here

Wow it has been a while since I updated...
School is in session for all the kids... We are keeping busy trying to keep up with all the school work, school requests, and just keeping the house from falling down around us. LOL
As you have probably read, we have a student from China staying with us this school year. He is a very nice boy. We have had some language barriers, but we are working on them.
The kids are all doing very well in school so far and the new rules this year have been working great. No video games or computer games during the week. Getting to bed by 8:30 pm and a few others and they are doing great!
Kali has joined speech team again this year and will be doing storytelling, duet improv and a group script. We are so proud of her for doing this.
Kole is enjoying his cub scouts that meets once or twice a month.
Kaci is loving her hip hop dance class.
Now to see if we can get QiJia involved in something with the school, a club or volunteer group or something like that. He is usually on his computer as you can see from the pics below.
Our furry kids are doing well also. Mia has finally lost weight and looks like a doberman instead of a rottweiler with a dobie head. lol Tasha's fur is growing back and she doesn't look as shaved as she did.
Last weekend was very busy. Qijia went on a trip to St Louis with Wells Ling, a good friend of the family. He really enjoyed himself and we are so thankful to Wells for showing QiJia St. Louis... While QiJia was in St. Louis below is what we were up to here.
On Friday night I took the kids to the first home football game including our friends' exchange student from Brazil, Thais. She had a great time with her friends and it was nice to see a football game again.

On Saturday, Boyd took Kole to a Cub Scout event and I took the girls with me to an FCC picnic. They took care of several of the younger kids by taking them to the park to play and bringing them back safe and sound. They made a new friend, Sarabelle. She is 11.
I enjoyed hanging out with the other parents and catching up.

On Sunday we went to a birthday party for the husband of my wonderful friend and sister of the heart. As you can see, busy busy...

This weekend is a bit more laid back..

Here are some pics from last weekend and this weekend
