Making a TU chocolate

Not yet complete, but I just made a smile for a TU chocolate. I’ll mix the chocolate soon. 🙂

Tingting bought a kiddy fence online 2nd hand, then we repurposed a small area rug and a picnic mat, and it looks great! Leo seems to love it, and is moving all over that space on his own. He still mostly moves by rolling over, but he is able to push backwards, and with great effort, he can move forward about 4 inches at a time.

I want!

Don’t ask me why, but I want these so bad! Ban Dai makes the coolest toys. I found these in Takashimaya. I did not buy them if course, as everything in Takashimaya is at least twice as expensive as it should be. Maybe I’ll hunt TaoBao later.

Spring is near!

Spring is almost here. We took Leo out for a bit of fun yesterday, though he did not enjoy it as much as we did.

SCIS is remarkable! In the photo below, you can see 4 iPhones and at least 4 laptops laying around. The kids leave them when they go to the gym, lunch, etc. Nobody steals them, messes with them, or anything. It really is wonderful, to work someplace so safe.

Great photos

Tingting takes so wonderful photos of Leo. All shot on her iPhone XR.

Keepsakes!

Tingting does not have a lot of photos of her childhood, but today she found this one. That’s her, kid of course. Her mom is on the left. It’s a great photo. I’m so happy she discovered it.

King of the mountain!

Leo has reached the top!

When I was growing up, if I wanted to build something in the 7th grade, my options were so limited. But the students I teach these days have laser printers, laptops, 3D printers, laser cutters, milling machines, band saws, workshops stacked with tools, and so much more! It’s amazing! Here are some USB powered night lights my kids are creating.

Swimming!! Sorta…. :)

Tingting found another of those great baby swim places near our home. So, today we took Leo for a half hour float. It was really rough at first as he cried and cried, but 10 minutes in, he finally chilled and then seemed to actually enjoy it. He even met a girl!! Haha
