Chris had a birthday last week

I thought all day how thankful I am for this man.

He is prayerful and wise.

Not everyone is home every evening but those who were home tried to make dad feel special

Mandarin class~  very interesting.  Lainee and Zinnia remembered lots of basic words and both said it was kind of boring.  We’ll see  how it goes!  They liked it okay.  The lady is a Chinese Christian.  When she spoke to the girls in Chinese both of them said they couldn’t understand her!  She was sweet and commented to the class that they are all very blessed to be where they are.IMG_3822
