Today started with a lot of anxiety and worry (for me)! MilkyBar was far more relaxed and calm. We reached our school with plenty of time to settle in and he was off! Leaving poor Mummy and Daddy to fend for ourselves 🙂 There will be lots of ups and downs but I am sure […]
Just a few last pictures to sum up 2013..
In just a couple of hours, it will be start of a whole new year. 2013 has been mostly good, with some bittersweet moments (eg. MilkyBar graduating from kindergarten) to fun ones (eg, we had 2 short vacations plus several outings). There was lots of learning with MilkyBar (eg. I introduced lapbooking) as well as […]

Am so excited.. we are flying off to Bangkok tomorrow for a week! Going to totally go offline so will miss you all. See you when we get back! Lots of love!
