Friday night was Date With Dad. It was awesome. 350 kids and dads hanging out together, playing together and trying out a bazillion activities that Scott had organized. At the beginning there were huge games involving almost everyone. Here, Blake and Scotty are showing everybody how to play Rock, Paper, Scissors, Chicken, Human, Supreme Being. While Scott introduced the second activity Blake took a break under his legs and chatted with Emily.There was a huge circle game.And then it was a free for all.
I wandered around taking pics of our dads and kids and Blake and Scott spent some time with the activities. I caught up with them a couple of times. Blake enjoyed the big blue blocks, as always.
At the mat room station, Blake showed us how amazing he is at the vault.
Blake and I both got haircuts today. It takes 4 minutes to cut his hair and an hour and a half to cut and colour mine. While he was waiting for me he mostly played Minecraft on the ipad, but sometimes he chatted with the employees.
Hair salon lady: Where are you from?
Blake: Just me or my whole family?
Lady: Your whole family.
Blake: Well, me and my ayi are Shanghainese, and my mom and dad are Canucks.
She was pretty surprised.
SAS is hosting a super soccer tournament for our girls varsity teams. That means 12 teams from all over Asia have come to play at our school. All of the players are housed in with students from the community. We are very excited to have two girls from Brent International School in Manila. There names are Chelsea and Elly.
Today was Blake’s Student Led Conference.
Blake eagerly showed us around his classrooms. He is so proud of his work and so confident sharing his successes. Once again, I am so thankful for the people who nurture his love of learning, and share their expertise with him. We are such a lucky family.
I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of Blake and Ms Iqbal because she was sooooo busy. I forgot to take a picture of Blake and Mr Magsi, but I did remember to take one of the rest of his support crew.
