We were able to share any questions or concerns we had and Ms Erickson wanted to share with us our child’s strengths.
We were told Blake strengths are:
- Love of Learning
- Capacity to Love and be Loved
- Forgiveness and Mercy
- Social Intelligence
I took a picture, because who wouldn’t want to remember that sort of goodness.
It’s always hard to leave Canada, but it’s always great to come home.
We’re back in Shanghai now and starting a brand new year. There is always something so exciting about starting a new school new year. Freshly sharpened pencils, empty notebooks just waiting to be written in and renewed energy, excitement and optimism. This year is going to be the best year yet!
Here is our second grader on his first day of school. It’s going to be a great school year! First up we met up with family friends… Then classmates. 1BE reunited as 2BE.Most of these 2BE faces are familiar, but there are some new friends to meet too.
Still the same career goal, apparently.
All good things come to an end.
This August we had to say goodbye to grandparents, cousins, friends (we miss you so much Erin!! your folks too!), the river, our perfect house, trivia Mondays, Little Reds, Hearns, Swiss Chalet, baseball, St Marys, and, hardest of all, my dad.
Goodbyes are tough and our lifestyle means that we say them a lot. Too much.
But we’ll be back at Christmas for fun in the snow and ice.
There are lots of fantastic things to do and play at Storybook Gardens in London.
Imagination Playground blocks, a massive sand pit, 5+ massive climbing structures, a brilliant splash pad, cool little houses to play in and the two activities below are a car race track (this track is turned to ice in the winter) and a giant inflatable lily pad.
