The Ah Mee Family and Lam Family Update from Jill

Ah Mee family--Po Lone had a problem with his bike tire. We went to get it and it was shredded. We took the tire to see if it could be fixed and that night the rest of the bike was stolen from the apartment complex. So we were left with a tire and no bike. His friend's bike was also stolen. I asked J.D. if he could see if any of the youth had a bike they no longer wanted. J.D. was able to find a couple of bikes and today we delivered one to Po Lone so he could use it to get to school. Thanks, youth!

Lam family--Tin Say started kindergarten August 10. She had already learned part of the alphabet as her family had been working on it with her. She wasn't sure she would like school but does now. ThaZin is in 2nd grade this year. Their baby sister is talking up a storm and walking all over the place. There is a lot of activity when she is around.
ZarZar is working at Lee Lee's again so the girls stay with their grandparents when both NoSa and ZarZar are at work. I have been going to the grandparents' apartment on occasion to help one of ZarZar's sisters with her computer so I have gotten to see the girls a bit.
This past Thursday there was a feast at NoSa Lam's apartment before the start of Ramadan and I was invited. I am very appreciative to be included in big events like that.
