The other day I asked my mom if she would rather have the knowledge of Toxic exposures or of Chinese Medicine.

"Well... that's a hard one." She said trying to find the right answer.

Finally finding the correct answer she said, "It's a privilege to have the knowledge of both Chinese medicine and Toxic exposures."

When we left our house back in Colorado we opened up an infinite amount of possibilities. If we didn't leave our house we wouldn't be here with this knowledge that we have now. We left with decisions to make, belongings to buy, and recoveries to make.

Every day we learn new things. Just in this past couple weeks we have had several lessons that needed to be learned. We started a new diet that doesn't cut out carbs, we get more and more exercise each day, and we have a teacher coming to our house every day. We discovered foods like Quinoa (the source of protein), Adzuki beans (to dry dampness in our bodies ), and Mung beans (the De-tox beans). Our condition of dampness (the climate in our body) was caused by our exposure to mold. Living off of meats, vegetables, and of course these super foods makes it easier to slowly make our way back to normal health.

Along with the diet we have our supplements daily. Our two new supplements are Spirulina and carrot juice (juiced from our juicer).

As we come closer to recovery, we realize these privileges that we receive in life and use them to help others.

Despite all of the big things that we own the small things are the most precious.

Instead of playing with a big toy that would mean the world to an average 8 year old, my younger brother plays with a drumstick and a duct tape ball every day. We use the drumstick as a bat, a duct tape ball as a baseball, and other duct tape products that we use for bases. It is a game similar to Baseball except we make up the rules as we go along.

Last night was the last game of the World Series for the professional Baseball league. While my three brothers and I watched the Baseball game we assembled our own little game that we would never want to stop.

"Okay, your the Phillies and we're the Rockies." My brother said.

Of course, we agreed and started the first inning of the game. For a few moments in between every pitch we would stop to watch the World Series and return to our own game.

After a few innings my brother and I were falling behind.

When we got into the 5Th inning my dad said, "Okay, let's wrap up the game. This will be the last inning."

Of course, we argued but it was no use.

Like the Yankees, my brother and I ended up winning at that last inning.

While the Yankees are celebrating their victory we look forward to another game of Baseball.
