Sfds Kindergarten 2012

It was heartwarming to see the presentation the teachers made of the kids...

...the note

..and for everything in between
the lessons learned
the laughters,
the tears shed,
and the memories shared.

Thank you teachers :)

School Field Trip at Vancouver Aquarium 2013

Vancouver Aquarium is a a popular destination for a field trip for school. We had one last year when Kimi was a preschooler at Burnaby Montessori. It was different this time as the field trip last year was more indoor, talking about the different creatures found in the aquarium and some games.

This year, the kids were divided into 3 groups and they get to go see the exhibits such as the sea otter, beluga, penguin with their classmates. 

The tour inside the aquarium was the first on the list.

* Jelly Invasion Event

* Starfish got Kenzo's attention

This was a popular exhibit for the kids...

* Inside the Glass Globe

The kids had a blast touching these...

* Touch and Learn

The newest addition to the aquarium was the Penguin Point.

* Ready for some cuteness?

* I did not expect the penguin to be this small...

* Cuteness overload

As for the show, the kids sat and watch the beluga do some tricks...

* Waiting for the show

* Beluga Trick

...then it was lunch time

* Kids spread out their lunch and sat with their friends

* Some decided to explore some more

...then off to the Amazon.

* It looks like the outdoors in this area, and it was sort of hot here too!
-it was to mimic the tropical weather

There was a lot of butterflies in these area. Much more than I remembered from past visits.

* Sloth Sighting

It was also the first time that the sloth decided to make an appearance and at such a close range. He was  hanging on a tree with us walking beneath him... 

* Spider Jelly

...there was a bit of time before we had to leave so the kids were given a bit of play time.

I got some pictures of Kimi with her teacher

* Mrs Castro, Kimi and Alessandra

* Mrs. Kazun with Kimi

Children will not remember you for the material things you provided, but for the feeling that you cherished them

2012 Tzu Chi Farewell/ Graduation Rite

It was a year of Saturdays spent in learning Mandarin. There were many a time that I almost gave up and wanted to pull Kimi out of the Saturday Mandarin just to get some rest but we managed to stay afloat and finally the day came for the last day for the year.

It was hard to get dramatic results with just a once a week class and with no practice at home but I am quite happy with how Kimi recognize some words at this point.

* Some students are graduating for good

* Kimi :)

* With her classmates

* Kenzo occupied

* Presentation :)

* Kimi with 老師

* Teaching Assistants for Kimi's class

* My Loves

* Kimi with her handful of cars

Daniel's Soccer Birthday Party

This was the first invite we got for a Boy's Themed Party. 

Thanks to Kimmee (Daniel's mom), we were able to catch a glimpse of a boy's party which was a world of difference from the girl's party we have attended. 

* Kimi doing soccer for the first time

The first part of the party was spent on the field with a game of free play...

* Kimi in action

* Dads as goalie

Then teams were formed for a friendly game of soccer.

* Red Team :)

The girls decided that it was too much for them and decided to stay on the sidelines for a breath of fresh air.

* Avril, Kimi and Natalia

* Pretending to be spiders in a web ;)

* Uhmm... trying out their spider senses

* Group Picture

Snacks were served inside. Pizzas, chips, juice and more to feed the tired players.

The main event was the unveiling of the cake. A big expectation since Daniel's mom is a cake instructor :)

* Fondant with the ball made up of cake all through

* Lemon flavoured cake for the base and chocolate cake for the ball

* Daniel with Mom and Dad
