"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Its going wonderfully...

and, I've discovered that 11 yr old boys are the same no matter where in the world they come from.

We have rediscovered something that has made communication immensely easier. Google Translate is the best thing to come along since sliced bread. It gives you a text window and has tabs under that window to indicate what language you are translating both from and to. For example, if I type in "What is your name?", then it gives me "이름이 무엇입니까?" Since the boys are answering my questions, I guess its pretty accurate.

Last night, after dinner, all 4 of the older boys were tossing a mini football around in the den. At one point, it degenerated into the two Korean kids beaning each other in the head with the football...LOL. Then, as Joey tossed the football towards one of our guests, he used a light saber as a bat to hit the football with. It was pretty damned funny.

Well, I'm off to make some buttercream frosting and finish decorating a birthday cake. We are having Marty's birthday party today at Frankie's Fun Park from 11:30 - 1:00. More pics later.

They are having a blast. I LOVE how children ALWAYS find a way to communicate and get along so well.

Communication barrier to the wind!

They're doing it up over there.

perhaps the kids can teach some grown ups some communication skills! They all look like they are having a blast :)
