Singapore Chinese Orchestra was performing at the Japanese Garden. We made our way there after a slight drizzle.
Perhaps next time if it rains, I won't go. The grass was muddy and the kids ran around everywhere and got mud on their shoes and clothes (when they splashed or fell). There were more mozzies and insects flying around too. And it made the weather humid and somehow the still wet air hung about like a huge warm blanket, I was soooooo hot!
But we did enjoy the music and had a picnic. My mil prepared glutinous rice, and we brought the fruits.
During worship, in the Cradle roll, dd sat in the high chair there for the 1st time. And I held my hymn book to sing the hymns. She was pretty curious about all of us adults opening and closing our mouths. She stared at us for some time. I used the strawberry cushion to support her back so she could sit longer. The cloth in front is for her ever-dripping drool! :-)
ds2 had a day off from school: his teachers had a staff bonding exercise at East Coast Park.
I asked him where he would like to go and what he would like to do. He said he wants to go to NTUC (for those who don't know, NTUC is Singapore's Walmart/ Kmart; or Woolworths/ Coles).
So ok, he made his list and we went. I got to run errands and buy my groceries too. What a great request. It's like, if he asked to go to the zoo, it'd be very tiring for me. But this is easy!
Then we had lunch at Swensen's (also his choice cos he wanted ice cream), and my mom joined us too. While waiting for the food (the restaurant was crowded), he kept playing happily with dd.
I think he had a wonderful day off from school.
I let the boys wear their new tees (gift from American friend in Tianjin) to school and for Bible class; and let dd wear her new sundress with the hat to church on Sunday too! It says 6-12 months but she can wear it already. The hat looks a bit big for her, but it's soooo cute, I love dressing up for girls!
Here's a handsome boy from church carrying her. He comes visiting her every Sunday at the Cradle Roll glass window. Maybe he wants to wait for her to grow up.... hehehe.
There she is, fast asleep during the sermon. Always choosing the lesson time to sleep.... :-)
rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
