I haven't posted since August??? Wow!

Well, if you have visited my regular blog at all, you know we've been up to something pretty big! We came home from Ethiopia the week before last with our new son. It has been, and continues to be, an amazing journey.

But now... it's time to return to *some* sort of school schedule (which, when I'm overwhelmed usually means Math, Reading and Life) so that's what we've begun this week.

More on that later... more on what it's like to teach ESL for the first time ever (which is going GREAT, by the way), more on what curriculum we're using... just as SOON as I have some time and another big cup of Ethiopian coffee. For now, here are some "school" pictures I snapped this week so far...

Yesterday I gave Minte a book (in Amharic and English, which I ordered from here) to read while I prepared lunch. Momentarily I heard the back door open and close, and here's what I saw when I looked in the backyard:

Isn't that a great way to enjoy a book and the cooler weather? Pretty soon his brother caught on and joined him. I thought this was so cute!

As for math... Here he is after playing a math game, working on his addition using the Flashmaster, which he LOVES:

So, we're back! And I'm still here! I hope to post more soon. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope your school year is going great!
