Today we went to a Thai church-- our first time in this particular church and they give out gadgets for non-Thai speakers so that we could listen to translation.
Here's Roi with his "gadget"-- and he seems to be... busy taking down notes??
A closer look-- nah, he's not! LOL!
It was the kids' first day of class last Monday, June 20. They were so excited! I am so happy because despite the fact that they will be homeschooled, they would have 3 other kids to learn with, so it's going to be that lonely for them.
Aside from that, they will be learning at the center, where we hold free English tutorials. So it's really like a school atmosphere for them, with tables, books and a teacher! Yes, this is really one of the greatest blessings we have received this year. A teacher from the Philippines has come to help us. She is so gifted, sporty,funny and loves the kids!
Ria and Roi ready to head out for school! Ria is wearing her pink dress-- My, she is really getting taller now. Maybe she should stop wearing that dress as it's getting to be a little bit skimpy already. Haha!
Clockwise: Roi studies with James, another kid his age. Lunch with Teacher Belle. They have so much fun telling "knock-knock" jokes and laughing a lot. The kids recite the Panatang makabayan or the pledge of allegiance to our country and to the Bible and the last photo is Teacher Belle gives an orientation before they head out to their individual desks.
Thailand celebrate Father's day every 5th of December, in time for the King's birthday. But of course since we have gotten used to celebrating it every June, our family along with another family went to the park to celebrate it.
We went to the King's Park, or "Suan Luang" in Thai. This park is built in honor of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. It is so huge we were not able to see lots of things including what is inside this beautiful museum!
The kids fed birds and fishes with this thing they sell at the park. Funny how birds and fishes eat the same stuff. Hehe.. The girl in purple is Ria with our family friend's daughter, Zoe.
There are so many people who exercise at the park for free. Here's Roi
Me and my friend did the hoola-hoops!
Our family posed for a photo...
We also got to enjoy lots of beautiful sights while we went around the park.
A little field of these little sunflowers ( I don't know the name of this flower, but it seems to me like they're a baby version of sunflowers)-- Pretty, eh?
Another lake-- this is on the other side. I love the waters -- the weather
was perfect too!
Dusk photos. I love sunsets and how they paint the skies with different hues which change by the second.
There's me and my man in a scripted "gazing at the sunset photo"-- LOL
Ria and Roi's turn-- though a choreographed pose, I think this is precious!
And here's another family photo.
After this, we went for a pizza with very special friends! That was our family time... and our celebration of father's day.
