A year is almost gone..
So many things happened..
Kids did exceptionally well in school. They got 5 high distinction, 6 distinction between themseles for the ICAS tests.
School report, except for Yaya, who got B for Maths, they got A’s for all the subjects.
Yaya won the outstanding student award, by learning to read, write and speak Japanese in less than a year. ( that is one language I could never master!!). Right now our relationship is fine. I know it can blow up any time. I guess this will last a few more years.
It was a relief that toothless finally come around and understood that if he was going to push the boundaries, he was going to pay the consequences himself. He didn’t get in to trouble the last quarter!
He is also a good cook, can whip up a KD for himself without any trouble. He also makes very good pizza. He has zero linguistic skills and has been trying to learn Japanese along with his sister and still doesn’t know a word of Japanese.
He now cycles to school. ( it was really hard for me to allow him to cycle to school. Daniel Morecombe’s case is always on my mind.. But I know there is only so much I can do and the children need to learn to make responsible decisions, so I let him.. )
Baby is now a good violin player.. she seems to be enjoying her violin lessons. I usually stay to watch her, cause when she is very much immersed in to the music, she nods her head with the rhythm..and it is so cute to see it.
I guess I survived another mothering year..
And I wait to see what the next year will bring..
Wishing you all a merry christmas and a very happy new year.
