Yes, how 2018 so far. I would say there are ups and downs to it. The ups are children are growing up so much that we both can't catch up, the down will be we both were blocked down with office works as well as house works and hardly had time to organize photos and writing my blog.
Annabelle has entered her "Big School" finally. She has her ups and downs too in the total immerse Chinese school environment. She gone in with her basic (at time she can't understand teacher's instruction) to now she can tell me what she learnt every day, we are very pleased and proud of her improvement. She getting used to writing the strokes very carefully, listen diligently in class, used to the school environment, buying her own lunch occasionally as well as she has friends that she will be playing badminton with on every Friday. She had her first 背写 lately and she did well. We hope she will learn well and enjoy learning in this school too.

As her playful self, she says wanted to play in the play land.
That was the little about them in school.
In the house, both girls knew mommy has many chores to complete especially during weekend; they are very good children in helping. Jie jie love it when I told her to help in the kitchen (cooking with supervision). Annabelle will set up her room every night before she sleeps. She took on the responsibility to award the sister "star" on the star chart if the sister behaving well the day in school and daycare. While Abigail being younger and still a "baby" to us, she plays a lot and will also help out in the house too. She loved to collect laundry from the rack.

That was a little about them at home.
Since January too, Annabelle has joined the church choir and she took up the interest in ukulele. So every Sunday after Catechism class, she will be busy in the choir and practicing ukulele. Abigail also wanted to join but when we took her, "When you are seated at the choir, you can't ask papa mommy carry you.", her reaction was "I think next time then I will join!". This give a smile on all our faces. Since the choir started, Annabelle and Abigail love the Lord's praise and worship hymns and will hum away when they are at home. So nice to hear that isn't it.
With that, I think 2018 is treating us well so far. We hope our Lord will continue to bless us through the year 2018.
