Since last year I have been doing round up post at the end of the month as ” Highlights of the Month.  However this year, I intend to do it slightly different as  besides recollecting the posts shared I will be adding on other memories that I have created within the month with the kids.

In Feburary I shared the remaining Taiwan Holiday posts  where we did pottery, paper making and other crafts.

Like the paper  and clay that are made with our hands how the kids turn out depends on how they are molded from young.  Through having such hands on activities the kids learned that they are able to create beautiful works of art with their hands.

They have been taught that they are capable of greatness and embracing their creative side can give unexpected pleasant results.

The kids have learned that one has to put in effort in order to see results. There is a process involve in learning and gaining knowledge and experiences.  Not all things are easily obtained and hard work is required to achieve what they desire.

One is never too young or too old to learn a new skill.  I believe in giving the kids as many varied experiences as they can during their childhood. These experience will help them figure out what they wish to pursue later in life after they have  obtained the necessary academic qualifications.

Physical activity is really important for a kid in their development. Playing indoor golf was a new experience for the kids which they enjoyed.  I don’t think that I will let them do putting on a long term basis but if they do consider taking up  golf in the future they are welcome to sign on for lessons.

Our kids deserve to have us fully present in their lives and contributing to their growth and development.  I’m blessed to be able to have a flexible work/home arrangement, pursue my own interests and at the same time contribute fully to their welfare and upbringing.

I thank GOD for the blessings that he has showered upon me and the family.  He has been constantly providing for us and does deserve the greatest praise.

How was your month of February?

  1. It is really nice to see kids in different hands on experiences.They will treasure these moments when they’ve grown up!

  2. It sounds like you had a great month! We were pretty busy in Feb. with a birthday, Kindergarten registration, and several church activities. I hope you have a wonderful March.

  3. I totally agree that kids need to learn that in order to achieve what they want they need to work hard. Teaching them in a controlled and fun environment is helpful.

  4. February went fast. I admire you for exposing your kids to different fields. Teaching them the value of hard work is very important, I agree.
