Chinese School


It's pretty clear from the look on your face that you would have probably liked to be somewhere else. But I think the second class went better than the first since I could sit next to you and help you. Your mother was brave taking you there the first time not speaking a word of Chinese. She was sweet for trying though.

Treasures On A Slide




I think I took this picture in the summer. Although neither of you looked into the camera but I can still remember how happy you both were there with mama.

Kai's Lego Catapult

So cool. He made this with lego without any springs. Such an inventive boy. I don't think I could've done it myself, but then again, he could already do more than me when I was his age. He can already ride a bike, speak two languages (hopefully 3 soon now that Chinese classes have started), and help set the table.

Anna and her juice













Lately you don't like me taking pictures of you. But when I saw you sitting in your bed quietly drinking your juice you just looked too cute. So I asked for permission, and luckily it was granted!

Anna's 1st Kindergarten Day














































Anna Maria Chan, 2 years and 10 months, Hedge Hog Group, St. Sebald's kindergarten, 01/09/2010, Erlangen.
































Last Day with Maria



I was so sad. It was the last day you were at the day care with Maria and Gisela. You spent almost 2 years there. 6 hours per day, 5 days a week. You talked about her all the time.
I generally don't do well with goodbyes. But this one in particular was more difficult, that's why I couldn't bring myself to go there. Maria was very good to us and helped us a lot over the last few years.
You are just growing up so fast, already going to the kindergarten. Maybe in part I was sad for myself, that one day soon you will be leaving us and having your own life and family. I can't tell you enough how much I love you and you will always be my little girl.
