Random: sew much rain..





Typhoon number 15 is here! The rain has been coming since last night and hasn't stopped! There are many neighborhood districts have flooding related news. We are safe and sound in my parents' house. We've been  listening to the rain dropping and speaking extra louder to cover the rain sound. We were planned to make a quick trip to the stationary store, but it won't be happening till the rain stop, maybe tomorrow?!

Yesterday, S attended the new school's meeting. It was only 2 and half hours, but it felt long for both of us, even Lucky. This poor pup was so sad that S forgot to say Bye Luck... He waited by the stair way until I called his name. His tail was down and had the same look till I told him I' am going to pick up S. When S came home, he was just as happy as you can picture.. wiggly tail, kisses, and of course hugs! 

S and I both were certainly nervous yesterday. We met the teacher for the first time. She met the classroom new fellows and sat in the new classroom. I have had to leave her there alone yesterday morning. Her eyes were pink and I could tell she was uncertain about new school, new teacher, new class friends. I promised to pick her up in the new classroom and go ahead, enjoy your first meeting.  I am a proud mama! Just very proud!

The teacher and I had a very nice and sweet conversation when I went pick up S. I have expressed my concerns and hopes for S to experiences the oversea education and learning the culture differences. The teacher understands the our approach. Oh boy... I did feel drop that big heavy stone that have been in my heart over the entire summer. I am positive after the meeting the new teacher, so does S. It will be a great and quick semester and S already look forward school days.  We are rearranging our schedule as first full day of school starts tomorrow.  It seems like it always take a good week or two to get everything in routine. 

Today, as the rain pours, I work on S' new pencil pouch. She has requested one last week; BIG/ Triangle on the side and of course her very special print. I have wished to make her a few tops to go to new school, but when the computer crashed, I have none PDF file patterns that's being saved to the external hard drive.  I think I might need to purchase printed patterns only in the future. I though a pencil pouch might be nice for new school and it is extra large for all the supplies she needs to bring on her own.

Unlike the school in the states that we purchased school supplies and they will become community supplies in the classroom. In the new school, students bring their own school supplies and needed to label their names on every single material that resulted many supplies purchasing. This weekend is uniform purchasing, S is excited about it! I am glad that she will get to experiences wearing uniform to school daily. I have also thought it is very official look and help the children to settle in the school system.

As tomorrow will be the first Full day of school. S probably will be up before the alarm gives her a wake up ring and getting herself ready before I do. Lucky probably will be a bit confused not being able to see S around, but I shall send her a little reminder tonight to make sure let the pup know what's going on tomorrow, so he won't be waiting all day long.  I do think this adventure is heading the right direction even there are/were detours that we take/ taken here and there.

{Extra special Thank You} to all of you who visited here and sent your blessing and great thoughts to us. I hope more regular posting from now on...

  7. Good luck to Stella on her first day, I hope she settles in quickly and has a really fun time. The rain sounds quite dramatic, I hope the flooding isn't too bad and that it stops soon so that you can get to the stationery shop. I love stationery! Hope you both have a lovely weekend.
