Just simply add snacks and grapes, and there you go!

With a combined effort of 4 families, we had a successful garage sale this past weekend.Well, successful, not necessarily profitable. It was a great way to clear out the clutter in all of our garages. We had great childrens’ books, clothes, toys, housewares, tables, bookshelves, electronics….Books and electronics were biggest winners.

Received this Certificate yesterday, and felt so proud of my little boy. Including this certificate was an invitation to the Award Ceremony held sometime next year. The letter also indicated less than 30% of students who test qualify to attend Award Ceremony. Considering that all students who enroll in this Talent Search are very bright, scoring at the top levels is a great achievement! Way to go!

A Friday ritual.

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

A moment I want to pause, savor and remember – {this moment}.

For my nieces who have been bugging me to get a cat pet. And here is my answer: we are not getting a cat, but I can certainly make them for your lunches!

First time having tacos at home yesterday night for dinner. It was fairly easy to make, hard and soft tacos were store brought and so was the organic tomato basil soup (from Costco). For the stuffing of the taco’s, Istir fried ground turkey with corn kernels and diced tomatoes. IT was a big hit in our crib! Just for fun, using a cookie cutter, I cut out the soft tacos and toasted it for the soup.

Winnie the Pooh Bentos for today’s lunches. I didn’t have enough time to carve out Winnie 4 times, so I only did two. These are smoked turkey sandwiches on torta bread which every one enjoyed!

Did not plan on making bentos, but when you have cabbage, rice and leftovers, you would want to make something appealing. Right? The lunches were for my nieces since they have microwave in school and could heat them up. These bentos were made last week to celebrate the first week of school is over! From hereon, we raise the bars.

Today Dai Bee told me he learned so much during lunch (hanging out with his friend, who’s a history whiz), than he did this whole week. After lunch, they talked about forms of government. During dinner, he asked questions about similarities and differences about communism, dictatorship  and democracy. How free are the people in communist countries? What kind of rights do they have?

So what did we do? Library was where we headed to.
