August 22nd was our first day of school.  It's our first time to be at a regular school. Jojo is in 5th grade with 19 kids in his class. Boom-Boom is in 2nd grade with 25 kids in his class! We love being at Roanoke Valley Christian Schools (RVCS). Since we live at Shenandoah Baptist Church's missionary house, we only have to cross the street to go to school. We look forward to recess and snack time. We like having classmates but we don't like homework.

Here we are at our first day of school. Jayjay is sad because he can't go to school with us yet.

Catch-Up Post

Well... It's been eight LONG months since the last posting. Jojo and our mom has not been doing too well keeping up with this blog. Life is crazy with school and ministry, and plenty of traveling.

Here's what happened these past several months.

Our neighbor got a new bunny pet and they let us borrow and play with it for a few hours. We begged our dad to buy us one but his answer was... Nope! Oh well.

Jayjay and mommy went to the Philippines to visit Papa and Mama Taquiso (our mom's parents) for a couple weeks. We wish we got to go with them but we couldn't afford the plane tickets and we had to do school.

The highlight of the month was being able to go to a watermelon patch. The watermelons were so huge! Two of them were 25 lbs combined. It was a hot day but boy! The watermelons were so juicy and sweet.

Every so often, our moms would take us biking to the railroad tracks in the afternoons. It's about half a mile behind our place. We like living out in the country.

Every year on May 1st, a village in our town celebrates a rocket festival. They launch rockets made of PVC pipes with home-made gun powder. They do a contest of which rocket stays up in the air the longest. 

Two awesome things happened! We took our annual family trip to the beach and we flew back to America for our scheduled ministry furlough. 

We are having a blast with our American friends.

For almost two weeks, our parents were in Pennsylvania for some training. We stayed with friends in Virginia. We had a lot of fun with the McFalls family. We swam in their pool almost everyday, hang out with friends, went to the library, and a picnic at the Roanoke star.

We got to tour the Hershey Factory in Hershey, PA.

The Amish country in Lancaster, PA

The Civil War battlegrounds in Gettysburg, PA

I Love Being an American

The things I like about being an American is that we have freedom. There is plenty of fresh air. There is a language I can understand and all the friends I have. But few things in America are cheaper than things in Thailand. My friends are 10 Thais out of 5-8 Americans.

My Toys

I have lots and lots of toys, but I play with only a few of them at a time. Here is a list of them:
trains, planes, legos, building blocks (bricks), cars, guns, and dominoes. Some listed are least played with. I still have more I haven't listed, so I don't play with them. I would like to give 'em away.
