This was Jan's 1st outdoor activity organised by her Girl's Brigade and together with other uniform clubs in her school.
Jan has been very excited and looked forward to this event for weeks. She wanted to experience the fun and games with her friends.
So, few days before the actual day, I helped her to pack her stuff. Each students have list of what to bring for the overnight.
I dropped her off in her school yesterday afternoon around 1pm and came back to check on her at 5pm. The tents have been set up in the lobby and everyone was busy marching in the hall. And the rain started to pick up that time so it was a cold night. Luckily they put up the tents in the lobby, not the garden as the initial plan was. But it was a cold night. Luckily Jan has her sleeping bag so it was comfy and warm for her.
I got to catch her and her camping mates after the marching. Look how happy the girls were?

He complained of teeth ache yesterday. Then it was alright but Jay complained it was painful this afternoon.
A visit of dentist has been long overdue. So for the first time, Jay went to a dentist this afternoon.
Nervous and curious at the same time. But in the end after checking, dentist prescribed gel to put on his gum. No filling or pulling needed.

How happy that the kids are back to school!! No more messes and less arguments in the house.
We spent a couple of days in Sri Aman, then went to Lundu for its beach. And tuition and afternoon classes started again last week. Jay was not well last Friday but happy that he has recovered in time for school.
Yesterday, everyone woke up early. Slightly after 7am and since the weather was good, we went to the nearby park for a morning walks and exercises.
Kids were sweating out. Everyone did.
In the evening, we went to the pool to cool ourselves down. The water was nice and warm. Everyone has a big splash and water fight.
At night, the kids had an early night. Even Jamie dozed off after the bath from the pool.
When is the next long school holiday? Would not be that soon, I think.

Kids were busy rehearsing for their 1st church repertoire
Never ending schoolworks, spellings and revisions. Noticed that more schoolworks for Jay this semester.
Tuition centre hunting for the kids and glad we found one nearby.
Weather is turning warm and one evening I treated them to a cooling sweet dessert of yogurt ice-cream
Jan went for her grade 2 piano exam, which she passed with merit of 135/150 marks
Kids entered a colouring competition on one Sunday morning
Celebrated Jan's 10th birthday with a lunch treat and birthday cake
They have time to play together and some nights, everyone has sleepover in my room.

My girl is hitting the double mark. She is turning the big 10 today!
Jan is a big girl now. Just feel like yesterday when my first born slept quietly in my arms and now she is no longer that small. She is in between a child and pre-teen. A tough transition with all those stubbornness.
May God bless you with good health, joy, good and kind heart and wonderful things in life. We love you.
Happy 10th birthday, Jan!

One day during the school holiday I brought the kids for their hair cut. The boys prefer the traditional barber shop for their hair cut.
This old barber shop is very antique. Uses old stuff that you could not see around anymore.
First thing first, some snack for the youngest one. He must have snack while have his hair cut. Tough customer he is.
Jay was happily sitting in the seat.

Jamie loves to swim.
Actually it has been months since we brought the kids to the pool. However last Saturday as Jan had her swimming class (after a month of absence), we brought the other 2 for a swim.
How happy Jamie was!! He kicked, he splashed, he drank the water!
Hope the weather would be good on weekends to allow the kids for a good fun in the pool.
