My Awesome Birthday Celebration at the Beach in Ocean City

Hello again everybody. It's time to sneaked in at Mom's computer while she is doing the laundry.  I haven't had the chance to blog lately because  Mommy said, she is cleaning one of her blogs.  I am not sure what she meant by cleaning but I guess it is something important.  She told me before that this blog of mine lost the page rank (I don't even know what that is....wink and giggles) but she cleaned it and now the page rank is back.  So I try not to interrupt my Mom when she is  working because I know it is something important. 
By the way, I have an awesome  time celebrating my 9th birthday in Ocean City.  Me and my brother, EJ, had a blast swimming in the pool and in the ocean.  It was exciting to be  caught by the waves.  My Mom keep  saying "Be careful" but we truly had a fun time out there.  Below are some photos that my Mom took while we   enjoy the  ocean water with out Dad.

 I love being in the ocean, I wish we live near Maryland.  I would probably bug my parents to take us everyday on the shore ha ha ha.
Making sand castle and burying our bodies in  the sand was so much fun also.
My brother is fearless.  He does not mind the waves hitting his face.  I am more cautious because I don't like the water in my face.    
I would like to thank everybody who left comments on my Mom's post on Facebook during my birthday.  I had fun reading  all your greetings.  I feel loved!

The Little Donkey's Easter Journey

I know, I know, the Easter have passed long time ago but I did not have time to post this till now hehehe.  These photos were taken in April 14 when the  first grade and  kindergartners have their  Spring Play at school.  
The play is entitled "The Little Donkey's Easter Journey" and  it is  in musical form which was  so much fun to watch!  
The play was held at the school's big gymnasium adjacent to the classrooms.
The third graders were also involve as they sang some songs during the play.
It's a joy to watch these kids enjoy what they do!
I am so proud of our son for being so natural  in performing in front of a big audience.
I think that it is very important for us parents to show our support during our children's formative years.  It plays a major role in boosting up their confidence.
I always ask my husband to take a day off from work to witness  this kind of event with me.  It makes me very emotional when I set alone  watching  our kids perform.  Please enjoy the  sort videos I have recorded with my camera.

I'd like to thank Mrs. Bernardi, the music teacher and the teachers Mrs. Gain and Mrs. Runkel for their patience  and dedication in having this play possible for us to watch.  These kids gave up  some of their recess time in order to  practice and learn the songs.

Would You Dance or Would You Play and Instrument

Giving our children the freedom to choose is the right thing to do as parents. It might be early for them but giving them a little freedom also helps them in developing their real talent. When we came back from South Korea, we let our daughter try to take dance lessons but she did not like it so we let her try the piano lessons instead and she loved it. Before we bought the piano that we have at home, we looked at resources online like the musicians friend and compared prices. We ended up buying a re-tuned piano as it was the price range that we could afford. So if you are wondering if your child like what they do for their hobby or whatever they are into, ask a question like "Would you dance or would you play an instrument?"

Fuzzy Peach Fun

Before we went to California, the  3rd  Grade Homeroom Mom, Mrs. Arnold planned an after school  activity at Fuzzy Peach.  Fuzzy Peach is a new yogurt place  here in the area.  Below is  story of the place.
The happy faces of first graders. These three have siblings in 3rd grade so they are always included in the out-of-school-activities of the 3rd graders which I think is really nice.  Below are the 3rd graders (soon to be 4th graders).
 I like the place because aside from yogurt, it also offers  something to do for the kids.  There is a big board where kids can draw and write.  There are also Connect 4 game  on every table which is fun to do while  eating the yogurt.
 The place is big, lots of room for kids to run around.  The selection  of flavors are awesome and there are lots of  topping assortment to choose from.
It was such a fun event not only for the kids but for us parents as well.  Would love to  thank Mrs. Mascio for giving us a ride!

It was really a fun after-school activity.  Kudos to Ms. Arnold for organizing it.  I applaud these homeroom Moms, they really do a great job!
