I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools water and the parched ground into springs. I will put in the desert the ceder and the acacia, the myrthle and the olive. I will set pines in the wasteland, the fir and cypress together, so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the Lord has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.

Isaiah 41:18-20

An abridged plug in

Our previous attempt at getting John to look and plug cylindrical blocks into 25 holes was a bit too difficult for him. So we had to modify it by 1st using a more manageable cylindrical piece and by using only 1 blue bar i.e. 5 holes. After he mastered one we added another and now it's 4.
As with all students building confidence and ability go hand in hand. It was a bit 'sad' having to go from 25 down to 5 holes, but it's obviously the right direction. Next step 25 holes!

Monopoly anybody??

During the Hari Raya holidays we went to Cameron Highlands. John went for walks and played his favourite board game, Monopoly. He used to play with his grandpa whenever there's opportunity; there he learned his numbers and count his money. Of course the game played here is a simplified version, no buying of property or houses, just throwing the dice for money and trying to avoid paying tax and going to jail. It ends when the banker is bankrupt. He had a really good time and so did we.
Uncle Aaron Tan passed away last Thursday 28.10.10. He often leave encouraging comments on this blog; we'll miss him but we know for certain he's in a better place.
