Since our last post....

Where to begin...

Dallas Aleks went to kindergarten last year and had a terrible experience. His teacher I truly believed hated him because he was adopted. We struggled all with FSA issuses that the school didn't understand.. This school year we are homeschooling .. He has made great strides with education.. We have started a new book and he is beginning to read a little as well.. He got tubes in his ears and adenoids removed but other then that he is pretty healthy..

James Markus had went to first grade at public school had an awesome teacher and done well. But the school puts sports over education and let his amazing teacher go ... So this year he is home with mommy as well. Last April he finally had the cyst removed from his lower back went was greatly needed.. We battle Cdiff all summer after his hospital stay. We changed all his doctors except our great family doctor. So no more Columbus trips now we go to cincinnati . Every doctor we've met in cincinnati has been concerned with his size but thankfully we met a very nice genetics doctor who informed us that Markus has a rapid metabolism and not to worry about his size. 
In Feburary of last year (2013) we traveled to meet the family on daddy's (Steve's) side. We flew to England  with most of my family and celebrated Steve's 50 birthday in England with his family. The boys got to meet Steve's family in Scotland and as well as in England. We also went to Wales .. The last days of our trip we spent in London taking in sights.. Sue (Steve's sister) even joined us which was great for our boys since we don't see them much they got to spend some time with her and make memories . Here is some. Of my favorite pics from England.
