The 2nd half of 2015 has certainly been more hectic for me as compared to the 1st. I seem to get more busy as we move closer to December .
Last month was another roller coaster month for me. My normal schedule was badly disrupted by the constant holidays. I’m not kidding!! There were holidays EVERY SINGLE WEEK in September.
The kids were having a blast with their long weekends due to – public holidays, school holidays and haze induced school holidays.
September was a month of celebration like August as we celebrated Tiger Girl’s 5th birthday. She is officially no longer a toddler and will be attending formal school in a year plus. Time really whizzed pass super fast.
We couldn’t spend as much time as we liked outdoor due to the HAZE and am still suffering from the effects of continuous bad air due to the man made forest fires in Indonesia.
Since we couldn’t be outdoors we did more activities indoors. The boys had a fun time reviewing the Junior Explorer Activity Package which we received. They enjoyed themselves going on an expedition to the Arctic Circle and did both online and hands on activities related to the theme of the month.
This year we decided to make Hama bead coasters as Teacher’s day presents for the kids teachers. It was great to see them engaged in creating unique pieces for their own class teachers.
In September I learned more about accident insurance when I went to the launch of AXA’s SmartFamily package. It is always good to be protected in the event of an accident happening. It will certainly be a benefit for us if we do have the 8 services provided by AXA if an accident does occur.
Over the weekend the kids and I gathered at a relatives house to celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival. The kids seldom get to meet up with their cousins and other relatives so it was a great chance for them to mingle and mix around.
We were invited for dinner but went a bit earlier so that the kids could enjoy themselves in the pool. My water babies can’t get enough of the water and happily jumped in when we reached my aunt’s house.
The boys went out on their first lantern night walk after dinner. It was the fun carry a lantern each and having the place lit up by the candlelight.
It was also the first time that Tiger girl got to carry a lantern which was lit up by a candle. When she was younger we only allowed her to carry battery operated lanterns for safety.
The kids has lots of fun carrying the lanterns and walking around.
It was a blessing that the air was good that Saturday as we had been affected ( and am still affected) by poor quality air which range from the very unhealthy to hazards at times ( PSI of 200-300++)
Both the adults and kids had lanterns to carry and walk around. I think the last time I went for a lantern parade was when I was in Primary school. That was certainly ages ago!!
Were you out carrying lanterns too this Mid Autumn festival?
