The kids are all doing really well and working hard. Some of you may not have heard from them as much as you might have expected. This is because they are really busy, especially now that they have the dogs. It was wonderful to see how well the group meshed even in light of the age range from 11-21 (three Canadians are with our kids and the oldest is 21) They are always talking, joking around, and assisting each other whenever needed it. Not one child is what I would call an "outsider."
