The dreaded July

July is over! And sickness be gone! The whole month, we were overwhelmed by kids falling sick one after another – food poisoning, fungal infection, viral fever and the persistent cough.

Life still went on. Registered the girl in the father’s alma mater and realised that this whole process was truly stressful. I’ve not monitored numbers so closely like this time round. Thankfully, we were involved in the earlier phase. I couldn’t imagine the pressure for those who had to register in the subsequent phases.

Racial Harmony Day celebration 2018 edition. Sullen faces. Tired souls.

Art piece with Teacher Heidi. During her preschool years, I’ve tried to expose her to different forms of sports and the arts, and this within my ability. I’ve come to the conclusion that she’s not into music for now but she likes art. Most probability, we will continue the art lessons for her once she enters formal school.

This is a castle that she did from another art class. She went out of the studio feeling so proud!

As part of homelearning, I had wanted to bring them out to explore the museums, parks and what not. Since they were down almost the whole month, we couldn’t. Towards the end of July, we could finally step out, to the National Gallery for some fun. It was crowded during the weekends so weekdays are still the best.

A BSF friend knew about the son’s health condition and recommended Nutritional Immunology to me. You could tell I am desperate. The boy has been taking medication every SINGLE day and this shouldn’t be the case. His appetite wasn’t good and he’s super picky about food. Hopefully, his immunity would be strengthen in time to come. It really made July a bit depressing with unwell kids.

Despite what we had to go through in a very packed July (sick kids, meetings and trainings for both the hubs and I), God remained faithful and restored my soul. It must have been the prayers of fellow believers as well and I found myself getting better towards the end of the month. In teaching the kids in Sunday school, the Lord also gave me joy through service.

We ended July with a trip to Jacob Ballas, with both of them almost completely well. I was relieved, thankful and immensely happy that we could head to the outdoors. We really can’t take our health for granted and I resolved to continue to prepare healthy meals for the family. Can’t relax in this aspect!

Welcoming August with open arms. It’s a month of celebration and it’s gonna be good!
