We celebrated Anya’s birthday in school a day before we left for a short trip to Ho Chi Minh City. I was looking back at the photos from her 3rd and 4th birthday celebrations in school and realised that she has a round Bengawan Solo cake every year. Totally unplanned but an interesting coincidence! This time, we got little wooden model kits for the boys and felt stitching/ cross stitch kits for the girls. Reinforcing stereotypes, I know.
We pulled Adam out of his class to join in the celebration. I think Anya was happy to have her brother there because she can get a bit self-conscious when she’s the centre of attention. You can see her holding on to his hand the entire time while they are in front! I really cherish these celebrations in school because I know we won’t be able to do it anymore when the kids are out of kindergarten.
