We went to some nearby playgrounds:
but J did not like the playgrounds today because too many kids.
Some yummy juicy oranges to refresh!
I really don't understand why parents let kids eat these.
Current situation in the house at 6:30pm!
Recent way of J eating his veggies: (instead of all cut up into small pieces)
He said the turkey bun is his favourite, and he finished everything.
He took pictures of his food. He said he can show grandparents what he had.
I really love to watch J having so much fun at football club while doing all these activities!
What a nice quiet time activity.
It's a beautiful hot afternoon so we went to swimming:
So happy after swimming, eating fresh fruits:
I was so proud of him today, not because he could swim, but because I can see the confidence in his eyes, and the happy smile on his face.
The teachers in HWI are great! They are all very patient and experienced in teaching children. J was not very confident in the water but they were very tactful in engaging him so that he is not afraid of water. The instructors teach new skills step by step and gained the trust from him, they are able to motivate him to try new skills even though he hesitated at first. They also explain to the parents in details why we were practicing certain movements, and how to guide our children in the water to improve their swimming. I learned a lot too. Me and J enjoyed every swimming lesson. The teachers used a variety of tools to teach swimming including singing, catching toys, floating on "noodles" and mats, which are great fun for the little ones. It is also a great way for some parent-child bonding time.
I was very happy for his performace today.
We then went to check out the other sports in the SCAA.
This was such a great opportunty for the kids to try out different sports.
He loved volleyball.
After a quick lunch / tea we went to Times Square to check out the Pikachu exhibition.
J did not need to go to school tomorrow because it's Labour Day.
Me thinking "wise choice son!"
Went home made lunch
Sat down for 15mins to have lunch
Prepped dinner for 1 hour
Went out to Post Office
Played with J, running around chasing frisbee
Went home helped J take a bath
Sat down for 20mins to have dinner
Washed dishes for 20mins
By the time I lie down on the bed with J at 7.45pm I was so dead tired!
