PK Fellowship, December 2010

The pastor's kids fellowship was last week. It was not what I expected, though. I thought it would be in a park like others were in the past. Games with singing, eating, and more games. But was in a church and with less games and singing. It was fun though, and O.K. I even got to see my friends! I didn't eat much, though.

Yesterday's Sand Battle

This is us with Art and Film

It wasn't my fault that it happened to turn into a disaster. We were racing, then Film (my thai friend) started it. We all were playing in the sand, until Art (another thai friend) threw a cup of sand in the air then poof! a nuclear-like form was made when it hit the ground. Then we did it over and over again. We started filling a bag with dirt, and then we threw it, but it broke. Then it got worse, a bottle of dirt was thrown, forming a trail. We filled it again and threw it .Well, I stopped first and went home to shower just to finish and dress to eat.

Jayjay stayed behind and guess how he looked... HE WAS COVERED IN DIRT!!! Our mom had to scrub HIM HARD!

I Were A Bible Character...

If I were a Bible character, I would be Joseph. I would have a new cloak, get thrown in a pit, save Egypt from a famine, see my family again, and live happily again.

I want to be Joseph because he gets a nice cloak. He also gets more respect from his father.

My Favorite Class

I love my Reading class. It's my favorite and the easiest class for me. The work texts are easy and you read only during the first half of the class. When I read the stories I get excited until the end.

I Love Kite Flying

Hi! Remember me? I'm Jojo. Like I said, I'm your new blogger. Today is about my
kite flying. I have a big kite.

My favorite past time is kite flying.The kite is big , as long as my height. My kite looks like a jet with a pilot. If the wind is strong, I can fly it. My dad takes my brothers and me to the airfield at a factory compound.

I'm Three and I'm a Coffee Drinker

I liiiiiikke coffee! I like to sip from Daddy's iced coffee and from Mommy's hot coffee. Don't get me wrong, I still drink a whole load of milk everyday but I just really like coffee. Today, I stole my Mommy's mug and drank all of half of the coffee that was left in it. When it was finished I said, "Mommy, my coffee is gone! More please!"

I'm Jojo. I'm a Sleepy Head.

Hello! I'm your new blogger here. My mom thought it would be a good idea for me to do my Spelling class journal here. I do my journal once every 5 lessons.
Today's journal is about either being an "early bird" or a "sleepy head" . I am a "sleepy head." I wake up between 7:30-8:00. I feel sleepy when I wake up. I look forward to the holidays. It is important to be happy in the morning so I won't be grumpy.

Ministry Helpers

We asked the boys if they were willing to scrub the chairs in preparation for the weekend English ministry.
They were so into it.
When they were done with the chairs, they asked if they could also scrub the tub where we store rain water. Sure!
Later that day we did a little bit of gardening out front. They volunteered to help.
A friend of ours drove by on her way to the market and the boys asked if they could go with her to buy drinks at 7-Eleven. We each gave them 20 baht (US$0.66) as their "wage." They were happy.

Brothers and Team Work

We think the words "brothers" and "team work" are synonyms. We argue everyday. We fight over toys and other things, but we do love each other and work together.

New School Year... Again

And so we began another school year at home. Jojo is now in 4th grade. Boom-Boom is in 1st grade. Jayjay, he's learning his colors and mastering counting through ten or twenty sometimes. But he's really not into all that school stuff yet. He's not quite three years old so he's more interested in causing trouble than anything else.

Where Did Our Summer Go?

Good question! When we started our new school year at the end of July, we asked our Mom, "But we want a two-month summer break from school!" And she said, "It has been two months, guys." Oh no!

We were having so much fun that we didn't realize it was time to start school again. During our break we went to the beach two times, went to the big city several times, stayed up late, slept in late, rode our bikes, played in the rain, jumped into mud puddles, watched reruns of "Gomer Pyle" and "Andy Griffith Show," ate popcorn for dinner, and lots more!

We finally had our long-awaited vacation. After we finished our school year, Mom and Dad couldn't decide when or where to go. We all decided to go to our favorite beach, Jomtien Beach in Pattaya City. We were so excited to find out that June is low season so the rooms at our favorite hotel were 40% cheaper than the last time we were there. Also, our bedroom was just a few steps from the pool. Funny, we went to a beach resort but didn't get to play at the beach or swim in the ocean, AT ALL! We just enjoyed the pool and we went to see many different things in the city.

Day 1 was Daddy's Choice - Ripley's Believe It or Not: We went to the Ripley's Museum, Infinity Maze, Wax Museum, a not-so-scary Haunted Adventure, and a 4-D Moving Theater.Day 2 was Mommy's choice: a botanical garden. We did see other cool stuff other than just plants and flowers. They had a "garden" with flowers and plants made of clay pots. They also had a vintage car collection show room.Day 3 was our choice: some pool time before breakfast, trip to a water park, and malling.Day 4: More pool time for us; Daddy got the TV remote all day; and Mommy took as many pictures as she wanted. We were all happy and content.Day 5: We watched some movies, played in the pool some more, and stopped by a place with miniature replicas of famous structures around the world before we drove home.We had so much fun! We got to eat burgers and ice cream and more ice cream. One evening, Daddy surprised us by buying some kiddie firecrackers and a Thai lantern to fly on the beach. We look forward to our next vacation - whenever that may be!

School Year 2009-2010 Is Over!

We thank God for helping us finish another school year. It felt very long. We had a lot of interruptions but Mommy made sure we made up for missed school days when we weren't traveling or visiting folks. Daddy would occasionally take us swimming or go hit some golf balls at the driving range.

Jojo finished 3rd grade with very good grades. Multiplication was a little tough. His favorite classes were Science and Reading.
We discovered early on in the school year that Boom has dyslexia but he pushed on and has learned to read. It's still a struggle but we thank God for helping him try his best.
Jayjay is a handful and likes to disturb us during school time. He likes to get into everything. (Like the picture below. He got into a bag of powdered tile grout) Thankfully, our Daddy helps out our Mommy a lot by entertaining Jayjay or taking him out for a spin on the motorbike.
Thank you for praying for us when you pray for our Mom and Dad. We thank you for supporting our parents so we can stay in Thailand. We love it here.

"I Will Sing of the Mercies of the Lord," Jojo

"Amazing Grace," Jojo

This video was taken in September 2009. This is a piano arrangement of "Amazing Grace." Took him about a couple months to learn, master, and memorize it. He made one little mistake but he did his best.
