Last week the 3yo took his first proper swim class and he loved it. Everyday he asks if it’s his swim class day! Hope he actually learns something…
Otherwise it was the usual busy week. The boys go to school at different times so weekdays are always busy. Preschool drop-off, do some work and play with the 5yo, get him to eat an early lunch, drop him off at Kindergarten, then go pick up the 3yo. Get him to eat lunch, try to get him to nap (not always successful). At 3pm, Kindergarten is over. On Mondays, an afternoon swim class for the 3yo. On Fridays, a 9am swim class for the 5yo. I’m trying to see about adding a tennis class too. And what about music? Martial arts? I don’t want them to do TOO much but at the same time, I want them to be able to try different things and find something that they like! #firstworldproblems
It was Mid-Autumn Festival (the 15th day of the 8th lunar month) last week. And we had mooncakes, walked outside in the backyard with lanterns and gazed at the full moon.

Leftover mooncakes! It was Mid-Autumn Festival last week.
I saw this video for Yaki Curry (Japanese curry baked with cheese!) and am very curious about this mix of curry and cheese….! Although of course Japanese curry isn’t really curry more like stew, in my opinion (but that’s because I like my curries really spicy and more you know, Pakistani/Indian kind of curry)
