In a Nutshell: Summer Activities 2013

In the midst of all the activities that we had for Summer, it was had to keep my blog updated. 

I was in and out of the house, with playdates and work in between kept me from my laptop the whole Summer.

It was good to finally find some activities for Kenzo. I wanted to make sure he will be ready for Pre school and signed him up on several Summer activities to get him into the routine of being with a teacher and a group of kids his age for a short while. 

Some Summer Activites that I previously blogged about:

I was excited for the opening of the New Edmonds Community Centre (Fred Randall Pool), I was especially excited because I was waiting for the pool because it was right across our house and it was really convenient to have the kids swim and wash at home instead of the public shower. I was able to get a slot for Summer but Fall Season was really full. I hope the waitlist will open up and we will get in soon to keep swimming as part of their regular activity outside school. For now, all we can do is just wait.

Soccer for 3 year olds. I signed Kenzo here to test the waters. It was hard to get him in. Out of the 4 classes, Kenzo decided to spend 3 of the classes outside crying. It was frustrating to look outside the class with him for 3 classes, and was able to get him is when I decided to let Kimi in with him. For the whole month of August, it was a package deal for them so it was 2 kids for soccer just to get Kenzo to cooperate. Good Luck to me on sending him to Preschool...

* Gymnastic for a week

Kimi and her friend from school, Thea, went for a week of Gymnastic. It was quite a ride from our place but well worth it as each class was a full day. They were tired after each class but always happy which was what matters in the end :)

Kimi loves to draw and I thought that it would be nice to try the Cartooning class that was offered at the New Edmonds. I got several of her classmates to join her in this class to make it more fun. 

* Daniel and Kimi

* Natalia, Kimi and Avril

Shadbolt was a great place to learn lots of dance and arts, and when I saw that New Edmonds offered dances for a short term with instructors from Shadbolt. It was a no brainer, I got Kimi in for a class (8 sessions) of Creative Ballet. She misses her ballet class from before but we had to drop it in lieu of her Mandarin classes. I hope I find a good dancing class for her that is closer to our home... *fingers crossed*
