Open House 2015 – Adam’s Faces

Adam’s class did their project work on faces! They made many different kinds of faces such as balloon faces stuffed with flour, animal faces made of clay, paper thaumatrope faces, silhouette printing, papier mache faces, and so many more! The whole class worked together to make a giant face and they also put up a performance and they sang two action songs

Part of the Open House involved raising money for charity. In Adam’s class, there were some paintings on display that were painted by the students and these paintings were up for auction. We were admiring them and remarking that some of the kids could paint so well. Then we discovered that one of the pictures (of a yellow cat in a blue shirt) was done by Adam! We were pleasantly surprised because we weren’t aware that he had any artistic inclination. I’m sure he had a lot of help from his teachers but we were very proud of his work (and of course we bid for his painting).

Less Stress with AXA Family Advantage

Pregnancy is a time of wonder: you wonder if baby is growing well, wonder if you’re eating the right things, wonder if you’re eating enough (or a little too much), wonder if the baby is a boy or a girl, wonder if you’ve managed to buy everything you need for the baby, and wonder how your life is going to change completely once baby gets here! This entertaining AXA Family Advantage video reminds me of that exciting but stressful time.

When I was pregnant with Anya, I worried a lot because we had a bit of a scare early in the pregnancy, and again towards the end of the pregnancy when her weight gain was less than ideal. And since there were a few hiccups during the pregnancy, it meant that we had to see our OBGYN quite often and that added significantly to our expenses. I also needed a C-section so we ended up spending more than we expected. Looking at Anya now, it’s hard to imagine she was such a tiny baby!
