[The Best of 2012]

Usually the roundup post is done at the end of the year, but with all our travelling this dec, I didn’t get a chance to do it until today!

Owells…. not too late!πŸ™‚

Here they are :

JANUARY:

January marks the start of the year, G going into P1 at RGPS. She was super thrilled with the whole experience..... and we had lots of nice outdoor dinners at the Botanical Gardens.

K just turned 4. She's a lot more vocal, and totally the "girly girl" with her hair always neatly tied up and properly dressed up with coordinating clips and handbag and shoes.

G, going on 7, is the "cheese" to her sister's "chalk"! She's goofy, totally zany and have a carefree streak in her that does not think neatness, looking good and being demure is that important! Much to the chagrin of all of us!

APRIL:

April, the month where G has finally more or less settled down in school. The past few months were super trying on all involved, we were all very relieved when G motivated herself to attend school without much fussing. Here is a happy G after school with her Best Friend D.

JULY:

Back to school! The good thing about being a Parental Volunteer is you get to be present at most of the school events. Which means I get to see G in her school environment with the rest of their friends.

We also started the Ortho K process with G in August. It was a very liberating thing for G, she also totally amazed us with her determination on putting on the lenses! It only took her about a fortnight to master putting them on herself.

It was a lowkey celebration for K's bday party this year. We suggested either a trip to USS, or to the Night Safari, and she chose the zoo! Very enjoyable, although I had to carry a sleeping K at the end of the night!

G also started her weekend bake sales after being inspired by a neighbor's kid selling lemonade. She sold Cookies for the 1st time and this is her being all sold out! :) So happy was she that she did a 2nd one before the year was over!
