This Spring, we also took some gymnastic classes. See1 got to attend with the 3-5 year olds,while See2 attended the 0-3 year old, parent accompanied classes. It would have been perfect if the both of us could attend the classes together, because See2’s class was too elementary for him. It was also filled with toddlers which made it very hard to do much per session.
Our favourite memory about Spring soccer season has got to be the ice creams. Man, those ice cream/ popsicle at the end of each session was everything we look forward to. Jokes aside, See1’s interest in soccer grew over the weeks. It didn’t start off all that well, because See1 would be frustrated that he couldn’t get the ball or couldn’t seem to score. Then Papa and Mama had a chat with him and he decided to change his mindset, focusing only on having a good attitude towards soccer, regardless of the result. And that changed everything.
Coming from Singapore, where we don’t have the four seasons, we didn’t know that Easter actually marks the beginning of Spring. We never knew the significance of Easter (and the bunnies) to non-Christians and never immersed ourselves in the whole Easter festivities, besides attending church and celebrating the resurrection of Christ.
Even though everybody here tells us that the past Winter was very mild compared to the years before, it was still pretty cold for us. And though we could stare at snowfall for a long, long time, we were so happy when Spring arrived. Spring was also the time we discovered the flora and fauna around us.
