Our Guitarist

Yes we got one potential in the making.

Had such a good time watching him. Can't help laughing to my heart's content!

Simple meal for sick

Abel was down with the bug! Fever, lots of phelgm, cough like a barking seal and almost lost his voice totally. Mommy took childcare leave today and spent the day nursing him. There really wasn't very much in the fridge so using what there were and what we could get nearby, Mommy cooked up this simple pasta.

All you need for 4:
250g Mince beef
1 large Tomato diced
1 large yellow onion diced
1 cup of frozen peas

Fry the yellow onion till brown, brown the beef and stir in all the vegetables. Add some stock or water to simmer till cooked.
Mix in cooked pasta.


For the past week or so, we had been working on letter F. Phonetic sounding as we began…fffff….
We started with FISH and with none other than a very familiar song:

Once I caught a fish
One, two, three, four, five,
Once I caught a fish alive,
six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
then I let it go again.

Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
The little finger on my right.

Craft time was simple with tearing of paper into strips to make the seaweeds and into squares to make the pebbles for our little under the sea picture/aquarium. Mommy cut some fish, star fish and jellyfish and we counted them as we pasted.
Keziah somehow didn't like the idea of tearing and insisted on cutting her seaweeds out. So here we have the neater version. We talked about some words starting with f and tried to sound them out as we wrote them down. Keziah added in the eyes and decided that she wanted to draw in turtles as well.
Not missing out on our memory verse. For this week, it's John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have either life." We fished the fish with our magnets and the two kids got into a squabble who had more. Keziah was then tasked to arrange them in order.

Next, we went on to be frogs, hopping around and the kids just enjoyed it. Found this song and the kids loved it. You can add on the activity by have 5 paper frogs with different number of specks on each, keeping two the same. Then, we can get the young one to find which two were exact twins, which had most and which had least spots. Last but not least, simple subtraction of (-1) from 5 down to 0. Keziah enjoyed the picture crossword.

Never missing out on the craft. Scissor skills for Abel who cut squares of shades of green and pasted on the frog template. Keziah decided that she wanted to colour and looks like she's really grown in terms of colouring, using different shades to blend.
 Last but not least, a little talk about the life cycle of the frog.

Keziah's Art updates

Keziah's been drawing a lot more building these year.
 Can you see the reflection in the waters?

Coming 10Wks

Coming 10 weeks, the tastebuds are still off tangent. Nothing tastes good and not even much craving. Nausea all the time. Looks like age is catching up and this pregnancy seems even more difficult to cope with. Ever so tired and everything takes an ounce more of energy to be done. Thank God Hb's been really understanding and doing most of the chores. Just praying to get over this phase soon. I need my ENERGY!

Abel's first day @ school

Cheery start of the day. Abel was really excited about dressing up in his new school uniform and white shoes. He kept asking why he had to wear white shoes.
 Easy to settle and he was really comfortable with the teachers. As usual he's start in the cars and trains corner.
 Some song time at the hall..
In fact the school remembered his birthday though it has passed. Together with the rest of the January babies whose birthday had passed, they had a little birthday celebration on stage. The girls were definitely more excited over the cake!
How our dear son prayed! Ok I know I should be praying but I was just so amused by him shutting his eyes real tightly with his hands together to pray. Yes, prayfully he will talk to God so seriously all the time as he grows up.
