Ti has been such a blessing 6We did a 15.50 mile bicycle ride on the Armstrong Trail yesterday.  We went all the way to Lock & Dam #9 and back to our house.  She’s excited as am I and Jing to take her to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls to run the river gorge trails.  She told us this past Sunday, she’s so happy she got a sports family.  I told her we’re sure happy we got a sports student.

Ti has been such a blessing 3So far, it seems that “Ti“ (nickname), which means jungle girl in Hong Kong (a name her family gave her as a child because she was always climbing trees), is an excellent student except for maybe math.

Ti has been such a blessing 4Our daughter Jasmine excels at math, and it really is a wonderful thing to see Jasmine helping Ti with her homework at night.  They both sit at the dining room table and do their homework together.  Ti has been such a blessing in that regard, it used to be such a struggle to get our daughter to do her homework, and now they sit right down when they get off the school bus and do it together.

Ti has been such a blessing 7She’s only been here two weeks, it’s going to be very very difficult when she goes home.
