The Thursday before Mother’s Day Ellie had her first over night field trip to the Dairy Farm Adventure Center here in Singapore. It was only about 20 min from their school but they went on a bus and had to have everything for camping out overnight. There were dorms for them to sleep in but no cots or beds just wooden floors. Lots of “risk taking” adventures were had and she made it home Friday afternoon full of stories. The only down point was the rain and thunderstorms caused a few activities to be cut short so instead of doing four things Ellie was only able to do one.
While Ellie was risk taking I was at Sadie’s school for a Mother’s Day celebration. The kiddos sung to us in Chinese and in English presented us with a paper rose, a necklace they made and a picture they drew of us.
Sunday was a beautiful day in every sense of the word. It started with me sleeping in until 7:45 and then getting up and going to breakfast. Ken found a very neat French bakery and cafe not far from us. We had a lovely breakfast at Choupinette complete with French toast and chocolate donuts.
After breakfast we went to Sentosa to Palawan Beach. We hung out at the Bora Bora Beach Club, laid on beach chairs, had frosty tropical drinks, played in the sand and surf and just enjoyed being together.
Late afternoon, sun kissed and high on vitamin D, we went to friends for Mother’s Day drinks and socializing.
It was pretty much a prefect Mother’s Day. I’m a very lucky lady and I couldn’t have asked for more from my two girls and husband.
