Vanilla+ Sky

Finally!  The kids have pets already.  They have been wanting a dog, but we find it so impractical to have one. Rabbits are way to prolific, it might be hard to take care of little ones when they become too many.  They agreed to have a cat, but somehow it never worked out.  A fish would not be one of the choices.

Since we were given a big cage by (Ate) Ruth and her family, we decided to buy a pair of lovebirds at Chatuchak market last Friday.

Ria chose the white one (male) — we named him Vanilla.

When Roi chose the light blue one, we decided to name her Sky.  The names were based on the colors, and NOT because we are fans of Tom Cruise or Penelope Cruz. LOL! :)

Surveying their new abode...
They seem to be not so in love yet... :)
Vanilla up close...
And Sky poses for us! Beautiful!

Every morning Ria and Roi take turns in feeding their new pets.  We love it that it has developed in them a strong sense of responsibility, and that they have little ones to look forward to seeing when they come home from school.

Welcome Teacher Belle!

So kids’ homeschooling officially starts next week and the kids excitedly welcomed  their teacher with this poster!


While waiting for our ride, the kids posed happily –they couldn’t wait to meet their Teacher Belle!



Ria and Roi played  Bingo while we set up their home schoolroom on the second floor.
This is actually our workplace, a foundation here in Thailand that teaches free English to less privileged kids, but Ria and Roi along with our team mates’ kids would get to use one  of the rooms.  Isn’t it great?  They will be enjoying these books as well!
