Homeschooling Fun: DIY Light Box


I've been thinking of making a light box for Noah ever since a friend told me about them, but the ones I've seen online all seemed rather difficult to make. I also wasn't sure what I'd use the light box for, and shelved the idea until recently, when I saw a Dayre mum (thanks, Choopeechu!) making one for her son, who's ... [ Read More ]

Goodbye Seems to be the Hardest Word

Death Quote 1

Elton John sang "Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word", but I beg to differ. "Goodbye" is infinitely more difficult, especially when it's for forever. I know that as Christians, we believe that we will get to meet our loved ones again in heaven, but I'm not writing this post to talk about heaven or religion. I'm writing ... [ Read More ]

I wasn't sure if it would be a good idea for us to host it, since Noah usually naps in the car before playgroup, but thought it wouldn't hurt to try. I managed to get him to nap at home, instead of in the car, but ... [ Read More ]



Every month, I tell myself that I really should get started on Noah's monthly update, but somehow, it kinda slipped my mind this month, and I'm extremely late with his 32nd month update. Oops. ... [ Read More ]

The Tans in Taiwan (Part 2)


When C first mooted the idea of driving along the east coast of Taiwan, I wasn't very keen on it, as I didn't quite like the idea of being cooped up in a car for hours on end. My friends suggested that hiring a driver and taking day-trips out of Taipei, but that didn't appeal to me either. Thankfully, C found Juhu ... [ Read More ]
