I-ching came and stayed with us on Sunday and left on Monday afternoon. We had a good time chatting, and we tried to make a Tiramasu, it was pretty good for the 1st try, although it will probably taste better if we could find lady finger cookies instead of using an angel cake. We had to look for the special cheese for about 30 minutes in Kroger. But gladly we found it at last but we didn't find the wine we needed so we just used coffee(decaf) so the kids could eat it too, but because we had to use raw egg(as the recipe called) Jacob had a little allergy.
I started prenatal yoga on Sunday, it was pretty good. I like the teacher Heather a lot. We only had 3 students in the class, so it was almost like a private lesson. The other 2 women are about 32 weeks and 20 weeks, so I am the least pregnant. Heather talked a lot about good postures and how postures could help labor. We have 6 more weeks for the class and I will probably continue if they still offer the class.
Jacob has been doing VERY well in learning at home. His phonics skill is very good and he is willing to learn everyday. Jacob also loves his math practices, always asking for more. Timothy also does homework everyday, I usually print out letters and numbers for him to practice. He also draws tons of pictures everyday, sometimes coloring, sometimes free drawing.
Only 1 more week then we will find out what we have. I can't wait!! But it's only 1 week away so I am not that anxious anymore. Shirley(Ho) is having a girl soon and that's great for her. I am sure the baby girl will look beautiful, as all mixed babies do.
Jouma's father(grandpa Yang) passed away last week. I miss him and grandma Yang because they took care of me when I was in high school for a period of time. I loved staying at their house, because they were so loving and I enjoyed grandma Yang's cooking very much, I still think she makes the most delicious domplings in the whole world. Also the lamb hot pot. I hope I still have the chance to eat her cooking once again soon.
We've been enjoying very sweet oranges and pineapples recently. Mom usually buys Texas oranges from Fiasta, and they are so cheap and sweet! But the season is probably gonna be over soon for oranges, then we will enjoy watermelon in the summer!! Can't wait!
I will start taking the boys swimming very soon now the weather is getting better and warmer. Maybe Philip can take them swimming while I do my prenatal yoga class.
I hope Jacob still remembers how to swim, and Timothy will have the courage to start leaning swimmimg and not just clinging to the wall.
I will end here. Time for lunch!
