What a whirlwind for the Huangs. Amy and I struggled to keep up with our burgeoning work responsibilities, stay on top of things with the kids, and manage a major kitchen renovation. I took the kids to San Jose to see my parents and other family and friends. Jada loves first grade so far, and it took a while but Aaron is starting to make friends at his new preschool. We go to the YMCA every Saturday now, as each of them has soccer practice; we work out while they're there, and then we all get into the pool after. My sister made a short visit from California, and it was fun to try out some of our local eats and even catch a late-night movie with her. Throw in the usual assortment of downtown excursions, church gatherings, barbecues, and one last zoo run before our membership expired, and it was a full and fun month all around.
