He told me: Mom, I got three parts in my brain. Here is for piano, here is for violin, and the back is for Wii. You should remove Wii from the back.
That was cute. I did as he said. And we finished practicing violin perfectly and efficiently. Also, we finished the piano practice very fast. The whole practice together only took less than an hour. For a six-year old kid, I consider that is good enough. And Winston realized being concentrated could make things go smoothly.
At last I told him: You should always do what you ought to do first and do whatever you like later. So, next time what is the order of things to do on Sunday morning?
He said: Breakfast, piano and violin, Wii....
So he ran for Wii. No blame!
Richy came out from the other room and told me: The words you just said are great and should apply to yourself.
I knew he meant that I should always do housework before blogging. And it is very true. When I said it out I was reminding myself at the same time. That is the cruel part about learning with kids.
After violin, piano, and Wii, we went out to kick soccer in the park. As usual, many were flying kites in the park but the wind made it difficult to fly kites this time. Winston and Richy played soccer while I was flying the kite. I could not believe that Winston could kick the ball well. He used to kick to the unwanted direction two weeks ago. He had learned soccer from his classmates. They even "kicked" basketball at school when teachers wanted them to practice throwing balls to the basket.
Kids just learn so fast in skills and attitudes.
Religious Rites are popular in some places of China.
This is a tradition in some places of China where some kids are selected for religious celebration. The "real" kids sitting on the top are wearing traditional Chinese costumes. This rite is still popular in some places. However, you can see the ones holding the high chairs are older folks. It would be hard to pass this tradition to younger generation. Soon this can only be seen in the Discovery Channel.
