Do we have to have fun?

So, the summer is going well and the guys have even been enjoying it. To bad because it was supposed to be unbearable :)

Here is a list if things the guys have been working on:

Logan: sewed a small felt dog, has been practicing reading, math, fitness (he can do over 20 push-ups), reading "I-Spy and "Where's Waldo", 100 piece puzzles and playing checkers and Guess Who.
Caleb: has been working with his communication device. He's learning about colors, letters and numbers. He matches numbers well and can string count but not the concept of numbers. Pray he can grasp this soon.

Sammy: built a toy solar powered tractor/post hole digger from an erector set. He is now learning drums.
Kosal: built a toy tank from an erector set, figured out a wooden puzzle, 3-D puzzle of Notre Dame, a model of a MIG airplane, a small ballista/crossbow, assembled a wood-ply puzzle elephant and is now building a miniature castle with tiny bricks.

"Sakra" (means: cherry blossom in Japanese) she is supper smart. She has learned where to go to the bathroom and to whine at the door when she needs to go out. She learned with only two accidents and inside of one and a half days.
