Another milestone reached

As Matilda is nearing her 2.5 years old anniversary in few days, she has also reached another milestone. She is fully potty trained and wears her Kai-Lan undies with big pride. Where did the time go? When did she start talking in full sentences? When did she start to bossy her brother around? When did she become this sweet person we can't get enough of?

I'm cute like that

She put the whole outfit together by herself.

Hello sunshine!

Flying high!

The rising Kungfu Star

Lukas' new interest is Kungfu. I have found a summer camp with some kungfu teaching, Chinese language and arts/crafts and so this week Lukas is attending that camp. He loved the first day and was excited to go back next day.

New moves.

Our summer so far

As you might have noticed, I haven't posted any photo since Lukas' graduation two weeks ago. Since he is off school, we have been doing lots of fun trips and excursions. We have visited the San Jose Children's Discovery Museum twice, went to the beach and picked strawberries at an organic farm in Watsonville, went to the Oakland Zoo and newly remodeled Happy Hollow Park in San Jose. Of course we have season passes for Great America and have just met Snoopy and his gang yesterday. Time is flying by so quickly and we love the summer.

What are your plans for this summer?

Here are Lukas and Matilda at Auntie Pauline's recent company festival.

Lukas' kindergarten graduation

Last Friday, Lukas' Kindergarten class graduated. After singing many songs to us parents and other guests, each child received their diploma and a special award. Lukas special award was "Most Atlethic" and the teacher highlighted his great spirit and energy. He made his daddy proud with this award, that's for sure.

The children also performed a play and Lukas was farmer #3 with few lines to say. He did very well, spoke loud and clear. What an improvement to his social skills after being shy and softspoken few years back. Maybe there is an acting future in the stars. :)

Overall it was a great evening and it will be sad to not see the other children anymore. Many of them are moving on to 1st grade in different schools.

At the beach

Finally, the sun came back and the summer started. Of course, that made us pack up and go to the beach right away. The kids love to play in the sand, drift through the hours without an agenda, just enjoying themselves.
Here is Patrick showing off his Hulk skills and making the boys scream.
We were even lucky enough to see a bunch of dolphins gliding through the water. Amazing how graceful and wonderful they are.

Matilda and the scooter

Yes, she is fierce. Yes, she is fearless. And she can go on her scooter like big brother can.
