California sushi

# 346
Since my boy dismissed at 1.30 pm and the school was within walking distance from our house, he normally ate his lunch I prepared at home. Above is one of his bento box with California sushi, tamagoyaki and some Japanese cucumber sticks. We have been playing with flags of different countries which I bought from Tokyu Hands from Orchard Central.  These flag picks are 2 sided; iconic picture on one side and the country flag on the other.  I used black and white soccer ball flag pick to blend in with the white box.  The country that present it was England on the other side of the flag.

We craved for cold drinks everyday after school.  It has been scorching hot and sunny during the afternoons.  I literally have free sauna standing outside the school gate while waiting for my boy.  Nothing beats a cool honey avocado milkshake!

It was the end of second week of his Primary school days.  There was no pressure and he managed the lessons like a breeze.  He brought back his first spelling lists for English words.  A balance of some easy and difficult words which I thought was very encouraging to the children for a start.  I have started practicing spelling with him and would do the last round this Sunday before he would be tested on Monday the next day. 

The school also introduced a 15 minutes snack time on Mondays only starting at 11.00am on top of his early recess time at 8.30 am.  I have mistaken it was an everyday affairs.  Hence, I gave him a packet of oats biscuits on a Tuesday which he told me he "secretly ate under the table" in the classroom.  I bet the form teacher knew it since the latter reminded the class that snack was only allowed on Mondays ONLY although he said nobody saw him eating.

I hope I did not bore you with some snippets of this Primary school days and yeah, I would be writing more about it on my blog for a while.  Have a nice weekend ahead!
