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.

"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.
