After ds1 arrived home from school, we set off again, with a sleepy ds2 who had been napping, to Jor's house.
Jor's mom had invited ds2 over for a playdate. But it was more than that because in that compound, there were 20 kids, and many of them from the same school. ds1 himself was looking forward to seeing Ellie and Jade, his friends from after-school activity and kindy class.
For ds2, 2 of his best friends will be there. This pic is taken with Coop, one of them.
Coop was very sweet in lending both ds his Buzz car. And it was very fun for them, because it came complete with the gun. (They love to watch Toy Story.)
They had a nice big compound to ride in. There was a playground and it was huge enough for the kids to play hide and seek and have us moms worry if they are lost.
This car both ds were sitting on belongs to Jor. Both ds played together very nicely yesterday, a rare but very welcome change.
The boys formed a group and built their own clubhouse. It's only for boys, and they caught several geckos from the gardens to play with and probably to scare the girls away. Boys' club, girls stay away.
Jor's little brother, Ry. Very adorable. He let me carry him!
Sheraton Hotel is right there, and when Jade finished her swim lessons at Sheraton, ds1 was happy. They play very well together.
Jor's mom, Kim (Coop's mom) and Ser all prepared yummy snacks and we had tea in Jor's house. It was very fun for me too, to get to know more about the other moms.
When it was time to go (5.30pm came so quickly), ds1 said that's his home (where Coop, Jor and Jade are), cos his teacher said the "World is our home".
ha, ds1 is getting good at lifting quotes and applying them at the wrong time. I informed him that "home is where your family is, and daddy will get home from work, and wonder why the house is empty and start worrying where his wife and kids are", so yes, we still have to rush back to our estate.
ds2 found it difficult to tear himself away from Jor too. Kept telling him "See you tomorrow in school", "I will go to school tomorrow with you", and then he told everyone, including Kim, "I will come back!".
I don't have to ask them if they enjoyed their day that day. For sure, they did.
rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
