This week I get to teach Liam's preschool class! There was a good amount of dressing up and playing...

My boys love looking at my sea creatures identification book.even before they ever knew of Wild kratts! I think it is cool too, but I'm not 2 or 5. This early interest gives me grand day dreams of kids who adventure around the islands of the pacific as animal researchers or are park rangers who protect habitats or they travel the globe for the newest bbc animal film! It may not be a high paying jobs, but the quality of life would make us all very happy I'm sure. Oh to dream for them!

We bought a dining set in the embassy used furniture auction before we left. It needs a little help to make it feel like it is mine.
I now love them and can't wait to tackle the table next!
There are small aspects that I have planned and will be changing in these spaces, but for now this is how we are functioning in this home of ours.

We have been working on putting things in a place and organizing and decorating since the shipment came. I am driven. Driven with a psychotic focus to have this place look welcoming, tidy and cheerful. I only have 24 months of this official posting and two months have already past! I have to get settled quickly before it is already over!
I am making lots of progress and Ben even took off Monday to help! I still have a list of things I want done before I share a home tour, but I am working on it!! Maybe by the end of next weekend?
The first three days we went out or went to a friends for dinner. Chick-fil-a was Monday and it was family night with balloons and crafts! The boys got ninja turtle ballons and were so excited. On the car ride home Ezra kept saying Elam-ardo, Elam-ardo, (then in a movie trailer voice) Elam-ardo. Yes, Ezra says Leonardo in a unique way. You may recall he says Liam as Elam, so I suppose this only makes sense!

I just took a dialect test on newyorktimes.com. I think linguistics and dialect for America is super interesting! My test got me very close to home with central California as the estimate! Fresno/ Santa Rosa/ Bakersfield. How fun!

Liam is getting better and better at writing his name. I love this.
Then if that wasn't a great enough story, as we walked to the car Liam told me how he made a little girl and I said, but it has a penis. And he replied, it is a little girl penis. Still not grasping the concept...
As we parked the car he went to play with his art work and made peeing sounds with it hanging out the door and said, she's peeing outside! Like we are in China!!
My dear boy is five. Five!
My Liam is a very sweet boy. He is sensitive and helpful and loving. He impresses me with his sweetness and musical talent. I love this boy!!
