Fun Kindergarten Trip

Saturday, March 13, 2010
Four days ago I went on a kindergarten trip with my son. We were scheduled to leave home at 5.30 am and I was worried that we couldn't make it on time, because his occasional morning blues. Thanks to all wonderful tips and comments. They were a great help. We did make it on time. Yippee!

... and the bus finally left at 6.30 am, because three other kids had their morning blues. LOL. Some of you might have been wondering why we had to leave so early in the morning. Well, the reason was to avoid this...

A nasty traffic jam caused by us and many other kindergartens, which were heading to Taman Impian Jaya Ancol or also known as Ancol Dreamland for an annual gathering. The kids can participate in many fun kindergarten activities and competitions at this event, like singing, dancing, drawing, parades and more.

My son had a great time and I ended up with 160 new photos on my camera. It could have been more... if I weren't busy keeping track of my son who loved to play and run around. It was not easy to keep an eye on him in the crowd. Here are a few shots I made into a collage. From the top left corner, you can see in clockwise order: 1) My son and his friends posing on the bus. 2) My son and some of his friends participating in a word game. The goal was to run as fast as you could to pick a word out of a bucket and match them with related images on a blackboard. The team came in second place. 3) There's nothing more refreshing than an ice cream on a hot day. 4) My son's team posing with one of the teachers. 5) My son having great fun playing with soap bubbles. They were flying around the area and he was chasing them and clapping his hands to pop them. 6) Fun on the beach. The kids decided that they couldn't wait to get in their swimsuits and go in their underwear. Sigh. 7) Finding shells and crabs in the sand.

We arrived at home in the afternoon and I literally fell on the bed because of exhaustion, while my son was already pushing his bike out of the house to play AGAIN! My goodness, I really envy kids' energies. It took me two days to recover from my aching feet. May be I should start working out to improve my stamina. But I must admit that I'm too lazy . Have a wonderful week, everyone.
