We have been very busy lately and I am finding it harder and harder to update this blog regularly. With JE joining in most of the activities, it takes a longer time to finish a project or chore, but we are having lots of fun. JS has been able to help with a lot more chores than before. He seems to enjoy them, feeling like he is working like an adult. However, he is still a kid so he sometimes would back out if he finds it too difficult but with some encouragement, he is able to give the more challenging tasks a try again. Once he is able to complete it, he has this sense of pride in him that I could see in his smile. The smile that says "I can do it, all by myself. I feel like a grown up!"
Here are some of the household chores that JS has been helping with lately.
2. In The Kitchen

3. In the garden

|JE wanted to join in too. She put on a glove given to her by JS and tried to open a garbage bag.|
|Cleaning the windows.|
As of now, JS is most keen in helping out in the kitchen and has offered to do the dishes several times. He loves to help with preparing meals too which make the cooking time much longer, but it is much more fun doing it with him rather than doing it on my own.
