Easter

We had a fun Easter egg hunt early Sunday morning.

He moved pretty quick and I was still pretty sleepy, so this is all I got for you.

Date With Dad

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.IMG_0468 While Scott introduced the second activity Blake took a break under his legs and chatted with Emily.IMG_0562There was a huge circle game.IMG_0516And 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.

Easter Party

Blake’s class had a spring party on Friday.  I could only swing by for a few minutes.  I dropped in while Blake was waiting in line to do an egg and spoon relay.

He was bouncing with excitement and gave Allegra a big squeeze.

Identity

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.

China Alive

Our Junior School had a special day celebrating China today.  They did loads of games and activities that recognized our host country.

I was in charge of the photobooth.  Kids came and got dressed up in traditional costumes and we took pictures.  Here are Blake’s.IMG_0129 IMG_0136

Home Stays

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.

IMG_9857It’s 8:00 pm here and everyone but me is fast asleep.  I think the girls are worn out from traveling and I’m pretty sure Blake is tired from talking to them non-stop for 2 hours.

Student Led Conferences

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.

Here is Blake’s class.

normal kmiThey are a really terrific group of kids!  Blake has the most amazing teacher we could ever hope for and an incredible teaching assistant.

Then the photographer asked them to do a goofy pose and he didn’t have to ask twice.
