Posted Amilie's birthday photos up, so today I will be posting Izaac's birthday pictures and videos. While searching the photos, I didn't managed to find 2016. Therefore, I had no choice but to post till 2015 instead of 2016. It's a tradition in our home that the children got a birthday cake and we will start singing birthday song few hours after dinner. The kids enjoyed this tradition and I do hope that they got to celebrate this as many years as possible, one day they will be celebrating with their friends instead of with us.
Found pictures of them doing painting on National Day few years back and decided to write something about it.
When the kids were at very young age, I like to engage them in Art & Craft. Using art & craft to teach them on alphabets is good and interesting as they got to color or create something out of recycled items to form something related with the alphabet. It could leave a deeper impression on them.
Not sure was it because I had engaged them in these activities at a very young age, the teachers always commented that the children love to draw and they draw very nice. They had no problem getting their hands dirty with paint or cutting things using scissors.
However, with the overwhelming school activities and homework, they are often left with less time to do any art & crafts.
Below are one of the moments when they were free and got the mood to do some painting activities. Since that day happened to be National Day, I had suggested to them to paint something related to National Day instead.
See the video how they enjoyed painting on National Day.
It's been awhile since I have posted videos of the kids. This morning, to encourage the kids to practice more music, I decided to post their practices. 🙂
Here's Amilie playing Bacarolle
Izaac's Let's Go On An Expedition
As Amilie is still having fever, she have to miss the mini concert. Therefore, this time round, only Izaac's got to show off. 🙂
Athina got the first time to attend the brother's concert.

The first item is memory singing. The kids gathered around the piano and singing. That's normally how they attend the lessons as well.

Here's the 3 kids of my life.
Amilie posing with a heart shape with a kiss after being "barred" by me not to take with her flower pose. Keke
Izaac the only boy with his shy pose. He wasn't feeling happy when the picture was taken as he couldn't play anymore game for today.
Athina posing with her 1 finger peace sign. She tried to imitate our peace sign but she only managed to pose with 1 finger each. Nevertheless she is still cute.
Although they do make me angry sometimes, its really great to have them in my life. Love you darlings.
One evening, when I was on my way home from work. Izaac called me on the phone. Here's the conversation that we had...
Izaac: Mummy, my birthday over already? (more…)
On Wednesday, Izaac had the last lesson for Music Wonderland at Yamaha. For the last lesson, they had a mini class concert. Though the class is small, Izaac sure enjoys his music lesson very much.
Here's some of the video clips I managed to capture. However, as my camera's battery was low and I had to replaced some of the concert using the phone which the effect might not be good.
Here's the first song that they sang and danced. (more…)
In May, the kids got a chance to participate in their school's opening ceremony. As their school only started in July last year, so they had a chance to attend the school's opening ceremony. It's also a good time for us to see how the kids actually got along in the new school.
Their artwork are also displayed for us to see.

Amilie and Izaac got a chance to be flower boy and flower girl for the first time when BIL got married last year.
It's also the first time that the kids attended a wedding. Here are some of the snapshots of them witnessing their uncle get married.
The kids waking up early all ready waiting for the couple to arrive for the tea ceremony.
