Busy day around the clock. Started the day at 8am and didn’t come home until 9pm. As one of the gym commissioner to Ah Lo’s basketball organization, I had to show up early to setup and make sure all goes well with the tournament. Dai Bee and my sister are the official time/score keepers. In the middle of the day, Dai Bee needs to be dropped off for this school’s orchestra spring concert (rehearsal). I took over his job as timekeeper. As soon as the last game ended, we rushed to see Dai Bee’s concert in the evening.

With all the madness, it was icing on the cake to know Ah Lo’s team won both games and will be going to championship tomorrow morning.

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}

Another jam packed Saturday. First we have a 5k Run in the morning. When I signed up, somehow I thought it was 5k was ONE mile. I know?! Of course, got some lip service from my boys since one of them has a basketball game in the afternoon. Still, they were a a good sport and came out to run with me in the morning. IMG_2046-EDITEDAfter the race, we went home and took a short break and went off to Ah Lo’s basketball game. It was a nail biter since we won by one point! These games are a lot more interesting to watch now since Ah Lo has been improving. Way to go!

We had to part after the 1st game since Dai Bee has a piano recital in the evening and Ah Lo has another game. Mr. Piggy reported our team won the second game.

Tonight we enjoyed Dai Bee’s school orchestra and choir performances. This is extremely different from his middle school where the orchestra is so much bigger. Even the set up takes about a couple of minutes for each rotation. Tonight was a much more intimate feeling. Students introduced their piece and the timing of each piece was perfect. One hour flew by while enjoying this group of talented musicians.

This old photo popped up in my FB memories, posted way back in 2013. 5 years later, some things just don’t change.

Performing for seniors, second stop. Since most of the seniors at this home are Chinese, I suggested to the boys to play classic Chinese songs. This time their younger cousins and a friend came along. Glad the boys were given this opportunity and more importantly, that the seniors and staff enjoyed their performance.IMG_1016-1

Second year in a row we stop by a senior home for the boys to play some Christmas music for them. We have another one next week. They have been practicing Carol of the Bells and did a wonderful job. Wished I had their gift…IMG_0953-1

Another recital in the books.IMG_0573

The boys will be performing a duet (Carol of the Bells) for the seniors at senior home and then for the family during Christmas. Dai Bee will be playing violin and Ah Lo on the piano. They have been working to finalize the piece. I can’t wait to hear it.FullSizeRender 4
