Art is not one of my strong subjects. If I get to choose between art and music I would certainly chose music as it was what I am more inclined to. However this week I decided to join in with some friends of mine to try out a 3 hour painting session at Arteastiq. I felt that it was time for some me time without the kids and have a girls outing. The last outing that I had without the kids was went I attended the bread making course two months ago.
It was the first time that I tried painting on canvas with acrylic paints and it was really fun. I initially chose a picture from the files which they had on the counter for customers to browse. However after partially drawing the picture on the canvas I decided to make my own alteration to the picture and add in a pair of cats instead. Painting on canvas wasn’t as easy as I expected and it was not easy to blend the colors as compared to painting on drawing paper.
I found it really relaxing being at the painting session as I could clear my mind and just focus on painting. The kids were not around to distract me and it will really great having the bonding session with the ladies.

As the year is coming to an end I can’t help thinking about Ryan and that he will be in K2 (Kindergarten 2) next year. 2010 will be the year that we will be registering him for Primary One . I have already decided on which school to place him in and that is less one hassle for me.
My students just finished their end of year examinations and I had the opportunity to look at the Primary 1 papers. It seems that Ryan is up to par in the preparation for transition from Kindergarten to Elementary school. I just need to give him more practice in Mathematics.
I also took a look at the Secondary school selection which was given out to the Primary Six students. Scanning through the various pages which listed the achievements of the different secondary school it got met thinking about what I will have to do after the kids enter primary school.
The emphasis nowadays is on a holistic environment and overall development of the child. I intend to let Ryan and Roy try out all the different sports they are interested in and then choose a sport or two to master.
