Learning to....

I have been working with the boys on their fine motor skills (can you tell I'm a teacher!!) and on their letters. We have been practicing our cutting skills and how to write our letters. Caleb is doing well. He knows how to write A, a, B and b. Ian can trace what I have written but we are still working on it (he's 2 so I am not pushing him- it will be a while). But they have fun doing school. Caleb is excited about starting school next year. I haven't been able to find a pre-k program that is not full so far, so I have started looking at the Mothers Day out programs. Hopefully I can find something soon. Untill then we are having fun working at home. I know that boys fine motor skills typically develop later that girls so I am having to try and remember not to push him hard and to be patient for his skills to develop on their own. Anyway, they are having fun which is the most important to me.

Wow, they are getting so big! Miss you guys! Cauy has been asking for his Rie again. He stopped for about a month or so, but now it is full force again. He sits in the back of the truck on the way to P.V. saying, "Oh Ian", "Oh Rie", "Oh, Matt". I tell him that Rie's house is all done and he says, "No Rie's house, all done?" Breaks my heart! When are you guys coming to visit?

I pray that your house sells quickly. Keep in touch.

Well I will be down there in October to do the Race for the Cure in Txarkana. I am not sure when I will be down there exactly but will let you know when I do.
Give that big boy a hug for me and put a picture of him on your blog so I can see him. The boys miss their friends immensley! They ask where their friends are and when they are getting here. They still ask to go home every now and then. But we are adjusting well. We are still visiting churches around here. Hopefully we will find one soon. Miss ya!
