Art Show

The kids have made some amazing pieces of art this year.  Their art teachers are amazing.  I love the art show at the end of the year.  It's curated just like a real-life art show and the kids are so proud of their work.  If I had my "stuff" together a little better, I'd love to add some photos of the rest of the kids' artwork from the year to this post.  However, we're in the process of moving this family across the world so... some things have to slide.  
Here's what the kids presented at the art show this year.

Recently Colin and I have been able to go out on a couple of dates. Man, that sure is fun!  
One time we went to an Argentinian restaurant called Bochinche.  It was super yummy!  
I think the appetizer was my favorite.  Afterward we were able to go cruise around downtown and we ran into a fashion show on Orchard Road. That really isn't my kind of thing but it was fascinating to watch the models for a little while.    

Another time we went down to Arab Street for dinner and shopping.
This was a really a fun time.  
We did some window shopping, bought some table cloths at Dillips, ate some dinner, and bought a beautiful Persian rug.  
This was definitely a successful night.  
And it was also one of those times where you think, "I'm really going to miss this place."  
Ahh... Singapore!

Farewell Tour

This past weekend we went on a duck tour, had dinner at a hawker center, and rode the Singapore Flyer.  We were on our Tacky Tourist Farewell tour celebrating our good friends' 10 years in Singapore!  Man, we are sure going to miss this beautiful city, and all of our amazing friends.

Musical Informance: Evan's 1st Grade Class

Evan's class had their Musical Informance to show off their musical skills learned this year.  
They danced, sang, and performed on musical instruments. 

I'm so proud of Evan.  He's a great student and loves learning.  He loves to be creative and this is true even for music.  This is another reason why we will miss our school next year! 

MacRitchie Field Trip with Ryan's Fourth Grade Class

Ryan's last field trip this year was to the MacRitchie Reservoir.  We went on a nature walk in the jungle and learned all about the plant and animals that live there.  We had a great guide who taught us all kinds of interesting things.  The jungle was nice and shady and although it was humid it wasn't too unbearably hot.  We saw lots on the field trip but I think the best is the monkeys! 

Ryan ate a wild berry! 

You can tell if it is a fern if the seedlings are on the underside!
Ferns will be the first to regrow after a natural disaster because of this.  

Yikes!  Spikes.  This is a variety of palm that is spiky everywhere!  

Last week we found a really interesting bug on Woodgrove Drive in our neighborhood.
A girl in Ryan's class actually spotted this caterpillar in the wild.
I found out they are toxic!  

Can you spy the monkey?

This monkey was down on the path and we weren't sure if we should cross or not.  

The reservoir is such a lovely place!
