Last christmas we attended a christmas celebration in one of the schools here in Hatyai. It was so amazing. When we first came, our boys were quite shy of going around and looking for different stalls and games. We could see parents and students coming back and forth making themselves busy. Then after awhile, our friend came and introduced the boys to different games with amazing taste of food. Then they started to roam around with their Papa and started enjoying some games.
We went back home and rested for an hour and went back to the school and spend the whole night there until 10pm. The boys really enjoyed that night and wished to come back next year, huh!
Only this time that the boys enjoyed christmas since we came. Big prizes were at stake by just buying a ticket worth 10 baht. Many went home with big prizes like refrigerator, computer, washing machine, bikes, and other stuff. It’s really fun!
Homeschooling is an amazing thing that happened to some kids anywhere. A school that spend more time at home with the supervision of parents. Others would say that it’s good but not for some especially if the parents had a hard time doing it.
For us here in another country, we have no choice! International Schools are quite expensive. So we choose to get the homeschooling program for our amazing sons because it came from our own beloved country and we have undergone a training before our kids started the program.
Today marks the first day of homeschool for our kids. AJ, the youngest who’s 5 yrs. old, was so excited when their materials came last Thursday and of course excited to start right away! Huh!Em2, the eldest who’s 13, wasn’t excited at all because for him homeschooling is boring and no classmates around only the mother. Maybe he’s bored of looking at his mom always…
Anyway, they had started and everything was fine, except that they started late ‘coz they love to sleep due to heavy rain since last night until early morning. AJ loved to learn but I was amazed when AJ was crying and was telling me “I don’t want to write anymore, then I knew when I checked the clock that it was already 1 pm. So I told them to rest for a while so that I can prepare their lunch.
Then we resume at 2 pm, AJ had finished his activity first before Em2, of course, Em2 is learning more this time and more time to spend. Another day for tomorrow, I’m excited!!!
Yesterday was the busiest day for us as a family because it was my sweetie’s natal day. We just don’t mind at first but when we receive a blessing we decided to bless others too. We called up some of our friends and invited them to join with us in our house for a little party. We had a little fun talking with them and they stayed until 10:45pm.
Sometimes we just take for granted our birthday especially if we are growing old. However, it’s also a time to give thanks to the “Giver of Life”, right? As we grow older we could see how faithful He was and He is to us as His creation.
Hope that we would always give thanks to the “Giver of Life”, the Master Planner of our universe and our lives! More so as we celebrate this coming New Year! A blessed New Year to all!
Thank You Lord for everything!
