One of my projects while
CJ has been in the this past week has been to update his scrapbook. We opened up a box of old pictures, stored under Joshua’s bed, and found these from the fall of 2000 when our family was featured in the Tianjin Daily. US
Charly was teaching in the Philosophy department at
that year and Nankai University CJ (5) and Joshua (almost 4) went to Nankai’s preschool 3 mornings a week. (2) started preschool the following year. Jordan
Our family’s form of transportation was to bike with the kids in back of our three wheel “station wagon”. When they got bigger (and heavier) we upgraded to a battery powered three wheeler. And eventually transitioned to them riding their own bikes.
Joshua wasn’t quite ready for the classroom setting yet. He enjoyed preschool a lot more when he and Jordan started attending a different one closer to our home the next year, where they both made some great friends.
Early homeschool lessons.
