teaching JoJo to kiss...

Posted by Tim 14 September 2008 0 comments

Josiah has been kissing for quite some time in the form of just opening his mouth and pressing it up against you. So we have been teaching him the kiss sound and he hasn't quite mastered it yet. His interpretation of the kiss sound is to make the raspberry spitting sound at your face. Here is a video of an example of him doing it...

Just thought y'all might enjoy these cute pics of the boys in the pool from this morning...

Landon School Update

Posted by Tim 12 September 2008 0 comments

Well Landon's first week of KG1 is officially over. He seems to have had a great time. We are so excited that he is enjoying it. We were concerned because he can get kinda shy and most of the kids there are speaking mostly Arabic. But he is doing great. He gets on the bus no problem in the morning and comes home with a smile.
His first day sans parents was his birthday. They made him a crown and sang him happy birthday and made him feel real special. All the kids got a "first day" picture and his was in his crown. Here it is...

Landon's 1st day of KG1

In this part of the world the kids have 2 years of Kindergarten. It really is more like preschool but we really wanted him to go to help him learn Arabic better. He has 2 teachers... one who speaks only English and one who speaks only Arabic. It seems like a very good program and we are excited that our big boy is getting to go to it!

I got to do some scuba diving on a recent trip to the Red Sea. A Romanian guy that was on the dive with me took a picture of me with a puffer fish. He had to email it to me and I just got it... so enjoy!
