No tears. We’ll be able to visit. But we went there most days for the last 4 years. An era is over. We’re ready. We earned our wings. Now we have to fly.
Cupcakes for last day at day care August 29, 2013
Shian-Ren and Min made and frosted cupcakes today and Ru-Jun put sprinkles on them when we got home. We’ll take them in for the kids to have after lunch tomorrow. Shian-Ren and I will go in at around 4 to say goodbye to people. It’s going to be different not going to that place every day. We’ll miss them but we can visit. Onward and upward for Ru-Jun.
Candy Crush Saga August 28, 2013
Currently stuck on level 33, which is ridiculously hard and can only be won by luck or using (buying) tools, which I’m not going to do… Genius on the part of King, the company. This far into the game a lot of people are addicted enough not to mind spending $. If the game sucked, a level this hard would have sunk it and people would have abandoned the game like the largely have Draw Something, although it wasn’t a level problem with that game. I think DS just had limited staying power to begin with. CC Saga is simpler and somehow more pleasurable.
Uno August 27, 2013
We’ve played quite a bit of Uno lately with Ru-Jun. I think it’s good for her number recognition and counting (she deals the cards). She doesn’t like to lose but she’s getting to be a better sport. She also doesn’t like to draw a lot of cards, for the same reason. We’re having fun with it.
First day went OK August 26, 2013
First day of the SBU semester went OK. We were worried about technical glitches in the large intro course (which my co-instructor is lecturing in for this week, then I take over after that until late Oct.) but that went OK. Tomorrow is my first lecture in my smaller specialized course. I’m ready (wrote the course last year). We’ll see how things go…
readying for school August 25, 2013
We got a new lunch box, water bottle, and soup container for Ru-Jun today. And new shoes. She’s just about ready (still have a couple of weeks).
