Matthew's development

Time went by too fast. Only a few days left, then he will be 5 years and 9 months. 

This happened around two weeks ago.

1. He told us that he went on the slide at school. The slide at his school is little bit high and has a curling curve.

2. At swimming course, he was allowed to go to pool 4. He is more confident with swimming. 

3. He's attending group 2 of his school, the teacher found out he is able to read and understand what he reads at the level of mid group 4.

How to Choose the Best Gift for Father's Day

Father's Day is the third Sunday in June, and it serves as an opportunity to thank and honor our fathers for all that they do. Traditionally, we thank our fathers by hosting barbecues, going on picnics, or going out to eat. We also usually give fathers a card that expresses our sentiment and a gift that is appropriate for the day. In the old days, people often gave their father a new tie, which he could wear to the office or at special events. Now, however, that's gone out of style. Instead, choose a father's day gift that speaks to your dad.

First of all, ask yourself what you dad likes to do. Buy him a gift that matches his hobbies and interests so that you'll know he'll actually enjoy it. For example, if he loves collecting firearms, get him some new gun cleaning supplies from a company like Militaria Press. He'll appreciate the gesture and the fact that it will show you know about him and what he cares about. This is much better than a meaningless mug or plaque that says something cliched about Father's Day.

Alternatively, consider buying your father tickets to an event or other experience that you can share together. Studies show that people are actually more satisfied after received experiential gifts than they are when they get objects, even if the objects cost more money. By spending time together, you'll also get a valuable opportunity to bond with your dad and make real memories together. This experience is more valuable than any trinket you may be able to buy for them at a store. Choose tickets to a game or concert, or look into something really wild like white water rafting or kayaking. 

Finally, make sure that you take the time to write a note or speak face-to-face with your dad about your true feelings. No gift or even experience can be as meaningful as a heartfelt talk with your father. When you take the time to thank him for all that he's done, it will stay with him for the rest of his life. An honest sentiment is much more powerful than any object. If talking is difficult, just put a sincere message in the card that you choose for him.

Take time this Father's Day to truly thank your dad. He'll appreciate it.

Thankful lists: Random days in March

1. Remember, I opened another store on Etsy last January. I felt upside down and almost want to give up again. I am glad that I didn't give up because I made sale around two or three weeks ago and I don't plan to give up anymore instead more hard work. 

2. I am thankful each day that I have two amazing smart boys. We are really proud as their parents.



Do You Want to Purchase a Home?

Are you in the market for a new home? Perhaps you will be buying a home for the first time. If this is the case, you are about to get started on an amazing adventure. However, you need to be very careful. There is a great deal of money at stake. A house will be the most expensive item that you will buy in your life. This is why it is so crucial that you make the right decisions where your new home is concerned. Do not fall into many of the traps that new home buyers are often the victim of. Educate yourself so you can purchase a home that you will love living in. Here are some things to think about while you are shopping for homes.

1. How much land is included with the home?

Buying a beautiful home is great. However, you do not want to live on a plot of land that is the size of a postage stamp. You should strive for something much larger. People who have small children should look for a yard that is big enough that will allow them to run around and play. A large yard is also helpful if you have a dog. Take into consideration the size of the property and make sure that it is big enough to meet your particular needs. 

2. How much work will you need to do on the home if you decide to buy it?

Some homes will require much more work than others. You might be able to find a great deal on a house that needs a lot of work. Fixing up your new home might appeal to you. You might enjoy projects of this nature. However, you need to get a rough idea of exactly how much it is going to cost to get the home to the point where it is satisfactory for your family to live in. 

3. Does the home have all of the features that you are looking for?

There are most likely certain features that you want your new home to have. For example, you might want to look at mountain farms for sale that have a wood deck or a hot tub. You should tell your realtor which specific features you are interested in. This will allow your realtor to only show you houses that you might want to buy.

Sunday morning

Sunday morning, 12 February 2017

Finally we had snow in our city. It was not much as some places in the USA cities, but enough to make my boys happy for few hours playing with snow. Few days before that, Matthew keep asking why we didn't have snow in here. I just wish that I could turn on snow to come here. He said "I want to make a snowman like I watched at the television." Our wishes come true last Sunday. 

I woke up Matthew and said he could play with snow after breakfast. He ate really fast that morning and can't wait to go outside. Meanwhile Jason ate his breakfast, Matthew and I were strolling.


When we back from strolling, Jason finished his breakfast and ready to play with Matthew in our backyard. Few minutes later, my hubby joined us. Of course there was snow fight between these boys. It was fun.


I am thankful for this Sunday morning. It was just few hours but it will remind in their mind.
