Our first Sunday after New Year

Sunday morning, after taking a cup of Milo and a few pieces of cheese crackers, April and May watched their favorite Toy Story 2 on TV. I was busy at the kitchen preparing lunch.
Putting in shredded carrot together with rice into rice cooker.  This was to give  them additional vitamins. 

I cooked lotus roots with cranberry beans soup, and stir-fried cabbage and pak choy. 
Since their papa was at work, we needed only one soup and one veggie.
After lunch, I did some housekeeping on my two girls' wardrobe. I still have my own wardrobe left for housekeeping. I plan to do it these few days. I have got  myself more than 15 pieces Chinese New Year tops and bottoms. I really need some time to rearrange my wardrobe, as it is overloaded now.

Sunday noon, I sent the girls to their art class, and I went to the gym to sweat it out for 1.5 hours.

Sunday evening, I took them to the pool for their swimming lesson, and I also swam for 1 hour there myself.

After dinner, I let them practice their Chinese New Year singing competition song. I coached April in her Chinese Story telling, the competition is held in March. Before off to bed, we did a short revision on her Science subject.

When I said good night to them, it was 9.30pm. I myself conked out at 10.30pm, may be due too exhausted with too much exercise.  No pain no gain. This morning, I weighed myself, I lost 1 kg. Hooray!
I did this for April as her first assignment in her Standard 3.

I urged April adding more things in the background to make it more like her own work. This is  one of the New Year competition work for all  students. 
I had a very busy, packed and contented Sunday. How was yours?
