Wearing glasses is already very inconvenient for most people, especially during sports practices or sports events. I wore spectacles when I was in school and I married a man who also wears spectacles. So, as we expected, our children are all short sighted. Sometimes, when I look at people with presbyopia who also require a correction for astigmatism, myopia or hyperopia,I feel I am blessed. These people would need bifocal glasses and they may get www.greateyeglasses.com bifocal lenses to help them see clearly. So, no matter how inconvenient glasses are, it's how we count our blessings that is important.

Every year, on sports day, I would be in school supporting my daughter and her team mates while they participated in various sports events. I would always be impressed by their school band performance. In their uniforms like those band uniforms at musicians friend, they look smart. I love to see the formation that go so well with the songs they play. At one point, I wished my children were part of the group. However, non of my children are interested in being part of the school band and I usually won't force them if they do not have the passion.

School holidays are usually filled with travels and vacations but this time around, we did not go anywhere or should I say we have no travel plans so far as we are all very busy. The children are busy training for their Taekwondo tournament while I'm busy helping with the preparation of my brother's wedding. So, this school holidays would be one without travel but will still be filled with fun and laughter.

The UPSR examination is finally over. For the past few months, students sitting for this exam gave up all their fun time for studies, tuition classes and revisions. Now, they could sing, laugh and play all day without the stress of what seems to be an important examinations. For me, result is not everything, rather it is only a small part of our lives. So, dear son, no matter what result you obtain, we will accept it with an open heart.

Life in the village is different from life in the city. My children love going back to the village. They love to get in touch with the nature and they love doing sports there. One day when they were back in the village, they had the opportunity to ride on what seems like a 110cc atv. It was really a new experience for them. Children living in the city are confined at home most of the time. Even if they want to get outside, there is always worries about crime. That's why they love the village.
I have never participated in any treasure hunt on wheels. So, we decided to join our friend and her family on a treasure hunt trip to Kuala Terengganu. The hunt was organized by Nanyang Press and it was a three days two nights trip with good accommodation, food, goodie bags and prizes. The hunt was exciting and the questions were really difficult but challenging. We brought the kids along and although they didn't know how to solve the questions, they helped with google search and photo taking.
The treasure hunt on wheels ended at 6pm on the first day and on the second day, we had a walk hunt in China Town. Lots of thinking and head cracking, searching and guessing were involved but in the end, when some of our guesses were correct, we felt satisfied. Although we did not win but it was a great experience for all of us.
Hubby was really happy with the trip and he said we will participate again next year.

The idea of homeschooling has been in my mind for quite some time. Everyone homeschool for different reasons. For me, I wish to see my children love learning and finding their passions along the way. Children can go deep into the fields they like. Some would discover music, art, baking, medicine, design or computer studies. I believe that children would do well if they do what they love best. A person who loves music may practice on their instruments and maybe learn how to use the lachapell audio signal processors. They can really excel when they have some first hand experience. Homeschooling would give the children an opportunity to gain knowledge, skills and character to bring along into their adulthood. That's why I support the idea of homeschooling and really hope that my husband would support my decision to homeschool my children.
