Funny February Friday

Gianna is four but sometimes she talks like she’s not. I don’t know why I even wonder when her older sisters were the same when they were her age. Just this morning, we had a conversation that went like this… Me: Stay here. I’ll be back. G: No. I’m scared. Me: Scared? Why are youContinue reading “Funny February Friday”

Low Expectation, High Appreciation

One of the best lessons we have learned, and also teach to other couples, is the concept of Low Expectation and High Appreciation. Coming from a place of hope instead of demand or expectation. A few months ago, I noticed this in action. Not that it’s never at work in our marriage haha. I justContinue reading “Low Expectation, High Appreciation”

Tidying Up

I’ve heard of the Konmari method and since Marie Kondo’s show came out on Netflix recently, I’ve been reading posts about how people have been sorting their stuff and keeping only those that spark joy in them. And since I’ve finished binge watching Grey’s, I decided to watch Tidying Up while organizing the girls’ homeschoolingContinue reading “Tidying Up”

Great Faith

It’s prayer and fasting again! Nothing like starting the year right as a family. Using the kids’ manual, we talked about the great faith of Abraham and then Sarah last night. When asked what could be keeping them from hearing God’s voice, perhaps distracting them during their quiet time, Danae and Noelle gave such honestContinue reading “Great Faith”

One of them is writing down what we are thankful for for the year. This time, we did it by month. I wrote down in my March box our trip toContinue reading “2018 Hongkong Highlights”

Last Funny Friday for 2018

Some words, for some reason, Gianna can’t pronounce properly… Jimastix. Her sisters have been in gymnastics for over a year and it’s still the same. Axe. Just last night she was telling her dad to “axe” the guard where a certain restaurant is. Minja. She said it so convincingly that I “axed” Noelle if itContinue reading “Last Funny Friday for 2018”

Funny Fridays – Enchanted Kingdom

Some time last year, we went to Enchanted Kingdom with the volunteers of our church. Upon approaching EK…. Danae and Noelle: …..screaming in excitement….. oh we’re here! i see the wizard! Gianna: ……quiet until…….hotdogs! I see hotdogs! She also seemed more excited to see (and eat) corn than to see (and ride) rides. This girlContinue reading “Funny Fridays – Enchanted Kingdom”

I thank God for VBC

Aaah, Vacation Bible Camp. Not something I have to do, but something I get to do. I thank God for the privilege to be part of a huge team of amazing volunteers. Their passion to serve, their love for God and for the children, their commitment and dedication to do things excellently, to push toContinue reading “I thank God for VBC”
