I'm a busy mother but I still find time to blog. Actually,I have a lovely daughter who inspired me to blog so you'll find my pages inundated with posts about her. I'm just new to blogging but I would like to post anything that pops up in my mind and share them. Since my first language is not English, please bear with me. I am open to suggestions and constructive criticisms. Please post your comments also. Thanks and happy reading....

Mama and Daddy in Thailand

Just for 22 days, Daddy seems to be enjoying his stay here even though there's not that much to see around Wangnamyen. Since this is his first visit abroad, he doesn't expect to see many places. I bet he is very eager to see the Floating Market in Damnoen Saduak when he gets there because my hubby's workplace is near the world re-known tourist destination in Ratchaburi.

I am posting here  pictures when we fetched them at the airport and  some photos taken here in Wangnamyen.

The agenda included English and  Chinese speaking, phonics, crossword games , songs,puzzles and other interesting games.  After all the entertaining activities, the parents went back home with a handful of materials and knowledge to teach their kids.

Suppawit School's Big Day

Suppawit School celebrated its foundation day and our General Manager's birthday this morning (General Manager is also the Over-all Director of Saimit Suksa Affiliated Schools of which Suppawit School is a member) . A two-in-one fe'te which made everyone busy prepare for the event earlier. While the celebration is going on, the honoree, Dr. Salit Butnian (General Manager) is traveling from Australia after his three week educational trip. Everybody was informed that the show must go on even without his presence.

The stage backdrop says "Suppawit School Foundation Day on the 24th of July 2011"
but we ante-dated the celebration since 24 is a Saturday.

The Golf Car

My boss smilingly gave Frances the car key when she asked  to borrow the golf car for us to drive her around the school park. She always do this when  Daddy  comes to visit us. Although I find time to drive her around, she is just excited to have Daddy bring us to the park.

One hot Saturday morning

Happy, yippee!!!

Frances' Handwriting

When Frances was 2.5 years old, she could identify  the 26 letters of the alphabet. Her favourite was the letter "Q". Now that she's 4 years old, she can write dictated- simple words like common names. She really likes to write our names continuously in one line :)

English Language Seminar

Our school conducts English Language Seminars intended to upgrade the  parents' functional English literacy every first Saturday of the month . This started a month ago. Organized by the Parents-Teachers Association and the Community, this seminar was evaluated after the first  session as a worthwhile activity for the parents of our students to share their language learning-teaching strategies.
The activities are focused on speaking-home language but some writing and reading are also integrated to facilitate learning among our participants.

Everyone's busy on the workshop

Interactive Participation
English Through Music
Learning activity: Conversation Practice about Having Coffee Breaks
