TRAVELS: SUMMER 2017 IN LONDON


Summer 2017 in London you say? Yep, I have long overdue posts that I have to share, so I thought it's never too late.

I had all the best intentions in this world to write each time I'm travelling to the destinations on my list during this sabbatical year but life must be lived. So after a long day of exploring, taking care of the children and relaxing, it was difficult to do much travel updates. INSTAGRAM is the best place to keep yourself up to day into glimpses of our life.

So back in July, on the third week of our sabbatical year abroad (because now we call home Canada), being in UK I had to go see my nephew that I haven't seen since he was born and my niece whom I last saw in 2009. All the children were excited to meet each other.

One day I booked a megabus ticket and together with the children, AMI was in Canada for that week, we went to London. We were hyped. My father in law as always commented on my travelling arrangements because he thinks I carry too much. I only had one two little suitcases and three backpacks.

We took the bus which was exciting for the children because they haven't been on a bus in such a long time. We travelled all the way to Thamesmead, where my sister in law met me at the train station. It was tiring but the children were amazing. They are truly the best travellers.




The following day we planned a day trip to central London. First stop was London Eye. Then Buckingham Palance via St. James Park, we walked past Westminster and through the change of guards field. We concluded our trip at Trafalgar Square. The funny thing is we took some photos on the lions, the girls sat on it, but we didn't set the camera properly.













The birth of the fake bloggers, lol!

My heart cries, but it rejoices to see your personality bloom. 

4 years old, a world traveller, a clever boy who is accepting that your he is a masterpiece created by God. I'm proud of you, of the little loving person you are. You can be naughty, especially when you want something and start crying your fake cries that turn into a laughter a second later.

I've been so nostalgic since the second week of the month, thinking this day is approaching. The year has rushed a bit. I'm stuck in time a bit, especially I can't believe that you're four. Over the time we've been living away from Saskatoon (since July), you've turn into a proper big boy. One of your favourite word is actually. I wonder if you will start behaving differently though I don't think so because I was looking through old photographys and you've changed in size but you are always your old lively, shy guy.

I pray God will keep you under His everlasting blessings.

OUR EVERYDAY LIFE: 2018 WEEK 2









 



WEEK 2 of 2018

This week AMI was away for a work trip in Cyprus. The day after he got there he said we should add to the list of places to visit few days later he said there are other interesting places visit. Well, Cyprus was not on my list so I wasn't hurt.

Suddenly TOI is scared of monsters.

For instance to go to the toilet he asks me to sit in front of the bathroom door (opened) so I can looked after him. One morning I was reading messages on my phone when he came to say he needed to go. I told him to go. To which he said "Why don't you come sit by the door? It's better than sitting in bed with your phone." I looked at my invisible self as I thought about this clever little boy who is about to turn four in few days. He answers for everything.

Five minuted before we leave the house and he get water on his school uniform. "Why did you do that?"
"I don't like green trousers. I just like blue and black. I didn't want to wear is the shirt." He said smiling his pulled the lips tight fake smile. I was fuming, so frustrated I was avoiding his eyes. "You won't be cross with me when I turn four."
"I like you TOI, it's your behaviour that gets me frustrated" I explained what has becoming a vintage record. He looks up and his deep sweet brown eyes get me.

Sometimes he says "You are the best chef, doctor

AOI was very pleased with her mood.
On our way to school, on Monday, she looked up at me beaming. She said "I haven't cried at all today. I'm so happy."
"I'm happy to see you happy." I smiled back at her stroking her sweet porcelain face, round cheeks that remind her each day of the little girl she used to be.

That night they kneel down to say their prayers.

I know God is working through them. On Tuesday TOI asked me "Who is belly were you in?"
"My mother."
"And who is belly I in?"
"Mine."
"I was a seed, Jesus created me."

For sometime I've been reminding them of the fact that they are God's masterpiece, created with created purpose."

 I PRAY FOR LORD TO KEEP BLESSING THE CHILDREN so they will know Jesus and He is unconditional and conditional love.
