Kai and I go over this every day.  "B, /b/, backwards, braille word "but", braille number 2" 
His IEP was this month.  They are pleased with his growth and how his English is coming along!

Lunar New Year - Kai took red envelopes to school filled with chocoalte coins to give out.  He likes doing that.  We bought Chinese food.  The lady at the restaurant showed us her pictures from her family's celebration.  She slipped in some cake that Kai LOVED!

This is how I spend all of my free time - engrossed in genealogy!

New braces for the monkey child

Liz decided to perm her hair!

Joy had a follow up for her knee.  We discovered puberty has brought a length leg discrepancy and scoliosis.  New braces with a build up on the short size.  Now we follow up with the scoli clinic as well as the orthopedist.  And strawberry pancakes afterwards!

Lots of time with my babies this month!

Hearing aids for Daddy!

New Year, New Book to Study

This year we are studying the Book of Mormon.  I love this book!  It has been a steady and constant blessing in my life.I have no idea how many times I have read it cover to cover.  Every day is what I strive to do.  But this year I am trying to study a little deeper, a little better.
I loved this quote from President Nelson:
My dear brothers and sisters, I promise that as you prayerfully study the Nook of Mormon every day, you will make better decisions, - every day.  I promise that as you ponder what you study, the windows of heaven will open, and you will receive answers to your own questions and direction for your own life.  I promise that as you daily immerse yourself in the Book of Monron, you can be imminzied against the evils of the day, even the gripping plague of pornography and other mind-numbing addictions" ("The Book of Mormon:What Would Your Life Be Like without it?" Ensign, Nov. 2017, 62-63).
As I thought about that, I realized the more we put in, the more we are blessed!
