Brandon's Taekwondo Promotion Test (Red Belt)

Thursday, Dec. 8th was Brandon's Taekwondo promotion test. It was right after school so we had to go quickly through the snow to get to our car 3 blocks away. Brandon was definitely nervous because he cried. He didn't want to go. We keep reminding him to have confidence.

Everyone was relieved when the test was finally over. Brandon did a great job. Mommy and the Instructors were proud of him.

Congratulations for earning a trophy for "Most Improved".

Built a Snowman on this First Snow Day of the Season

So little Brandon and I woke up to a snowy, Monday morning. Lucky for us, there was no school as it was Pro-D Day. Of course, Brandon wanted to play outside and build a snowman. I allowed him. I just watched him from the window as I worked on my laptop.

We also planned to go to Metrotown Mall to get photos with Santa. Traffic was horrible, but we got through it. We got there and just missed the first session of Santa's Photo Op. We had to wait about an hour for the next one. Lucky for us, there was wifi in the mall and we play some PokemonGo gym battles and catches while we waited in the line. So lucky we were the first in the line. The line-up eventually got longer.

Visit to the Museum of Vancouver #atMOV

Our next visit right after checking out the HR McMillan space Centre was the Museum of Vancouver. This is a separate museum in the same building as the Space Centre, but on the opposite side. Admission was also separate as well but we have inspiration pass to go inside for free.

There were displays on items we see back in the 80s. They were also items that were back from expo 86. This was long before little Brandon was born and this was when mommy was his age.

Some people thought neon lights were cool and amazing while others did not like it, so these were taken down. The museum have kept it for display.

Little Brandon had a hands-on experience with an old typewriter. I remembered my mom had one when I was his age. These things were way before electronic typewriters or even computers and printers were widely available.

Pumpkin Patch Field Trip to Aldor Acres Farm

It was the day of the Pumpkin Patch Field Trip to Aldor Acres Farm and I was one of the parent volunteers. I had to get him ready for school. I drove to the school and parked my car.

When the teacher assigned groups, Brandon got upset because none of his friends were in our group. He was crying all the way to the school bus. Then I heard the teacher said that the kids can sit anywhere and finally Brandon slowly started to calm down. I took out his NDS to share with his friends. The boys had a good time sharing the games on the bus ride.

At Aldor Acres Farm, the group parted ways and checked out what's around. We first went into the barn on the right side. The kids played on the hay stacks and held baby bunnies. Then we went over to the left side of the barn. There were bigger bunnies, puppies in the pen, and more hay stacks for the kids to climb on. They enjoyed that. I was carrying the kids backpacks while they played.

The kids got messy with the mud puddles. I was glad there was a hose to rinse most of it off. It started to rain and got chilly as we were finishing lunch. After lunch, it was the hay ride to the pumpkin patch. The kids were so happy to pick their own pumpkins.
