Whoa.

It’s been almost three months since I last updated this site. Sorry for that. I missed writing letters to my two kids, too. I have been swamped with a lot of work lately. I’ll try to make an update of the things that made me busy for the past three months.

My two kids and I, and the nanny went for a one-month vacation in the Philippines last Feb to March. It’s my 2nd daughter’s 1st international flight. It’s my 1st daughter’s 3rd time to go to the Philippines. The flight went well. What made us tired during the entire flight was we carried a lot of hand carries. Too bad, really. I never learned my lessons. LESSON #1 when traveling: don’t carry a lot of things especially hand carries.

We reached Kuwait on the first week of March, and I became busy with transferring to a larger flat near our old flat. I spent three weeks unpacking, and putting things on order. LESSON #2: don’t buy lots of things overseas.

On March 4th week, we celebrated my daughter’s 3rd birthday. It came in as a surprised birthday party for her because we had an activity at that time at the church. She was teary eyed and overwhelmed of the presence of her adult friends. On her 3rd birthday, we also joined a Book Reading Club at the Pottery Barn in Kuwait.

My effort as Work-from-home mom has been rewarded. I got a surprised award from the business that I have been doing full time for a year. Thank You, God.

This April, I started to teach my 1st born on how to really use the laptop (with mouse) for her homeschool program. I remember blogging about focusing on homeschooling my toddler sometime last January. I tried to read more about the best homeschooling curriculum, but didn’t find much time to do so.

This month of April, I bought a program at Starfall.com for US$35 per year, and her development has increased tremendously. To supplement that and also to increase her social awareness and vocabulary, my husband and I decided to enroll her in a preschool in Mishref. I’ll blog more about it soon.

My youngest daughter, 10 months, is also very responsive when it comes to “studying at home” with her big sissy. It’s much easier for younger siblings (who learn much from their older siblings) to absorb new lessons around them.

So far these are the things that have been keeping my hands full. Now that my business and online work are growing at a much faster rate than I expected, and my toddler is attending homeschool and preschool, and I’m also trying to give quality time to my 10-month old baby, I will be extremely busy in the next few months, and years.

This is all for now.
