Happy Birthday Justice
We just celebrated Justice's 2nd Birthday. He is so much fun and so very different from any of the girls. With the main difference being that he is a BOY! (duh) He likes all the boy things and we are all having a good time watching him grow up. He has that independent streak that I can only guess comes along with raising a young man. That kind of, "I can do this..I am capable" attitude. He doesn't like being told what to do but will obey if he has to. Sometimes he needs a little coercion, if you know what I mean.
Michael has now preached five times in Portuguese! I am so very proud of him and of what he has accomplished these last 6 months in Portugal. He's working on translating a tract with all we are waiting on being some topic appropriate photos. Then hopefully it will be sent for printing.
Brooklyn, Faith and Liberty will be starting school tomorrow. Brooklyn says she is scared. Faith and Lib don't really act nervous, but I know they are a little. Brooklyn is old enough to care about what people think of her, so she's a little apprehensive. --They are getting so big and I'm not sure what I think about them going to school. Michael and I are attending a parents meeting at the school tonight. Hopefully we will understand most of whats said, (well, hopefully I will understand.)
Trinity was going to attend preschool which we were using as a free language class for her but we've been told there isn't enough room and there's a waiting list. So it looks like she will stay home with me and Justice. Which works for me. She and I will work on her learning to read in English, cause learning to read in Portuguese is just around the corner.
