Kien plays Skip to My Lou

This year I got Kien a new keyboard teacher who comes to the house every week for 30 minutes. Its been so great! Kien has made tremendous progress with his reading of both the base and treble clef. I've only ever learnt on the treble clef, so its been a learning curve for me too.

He's just finished learning this piece. He insists on memorising his music, which the teacher says he doesn't have to do, but Kien thinks its a lot easier to play if he can commit it to memory.

Visiting the museum

I swapped my day off to be Wednesday last week due to the teachers strike. Kien had his buddy over for the day and I took them to the museum. We had stopped to grab some sushi so we could have a no fuss picnic lunch.

Kien loves to climb. He'll climb anything and everything that looks climbable, and dangle or jump off.

We spent at least a couple of hours here. We explored all our favourite exhibitions, especially WWI and WWII areas. The boys pretended they were fighters, intercepting enemy intel and calling in reinforcements. They ran around and verbalised everything that was going on in their brains.

Always a good time at the War Memorial Museum, especially with boys who love it as much as I do.
