Randomness from November 2021

Here’s a quick look at what else our hero got up to in the second-to-last month of 2021.

This and that:

A goofy dance at our regular Italian restaurant:

More this and that:

He had a school project where he and some classmates did a rap version of a Dr Seuss book. Here he is , practicing his lines on a Zoom call with his classmates, and mostly being shy for the camera:

And one last set of pictures. See you next month!

More Fun with Friends 

Just a quick look at Nyan and some of his friends in the month of November 2021.

He’s often in the pool with Nadia; here they are from ground level and from 20 stories up:

Hanging out with Ellie in the mornings, waiting for the school bus:

Chilling with Jayden, often while staring at a screen, for better or worse.

And a two-fer of Ellie! Thist time with Orie, a gentle old man of a dog who lives in the same apartment block as all of us.

Christmas Warm-Up Sleepover

Not that Nyan and Jayden need an excuse or a theme for a sleepover, but an overnight in November ended up being a pre-Christmas sleepover.

We got the tree ready:

And the evening’s activity centered around gingerbread men. We bought some cookies at the store and the boys set out to decorate them.

And… eat them.

It wasn’t all about the holiday, of course. There was time to draw:

And, since both boys take piano lessons, there was some work on a duet.

Notice how Jayden is wearing an eye mask in that video? Yeah, that was a whole thing for a while: wear masks around the house and try to do stuff.

Goofy boys. But hey, they had fun, and that’s what counts!

Going Downhill, Fast

Singapore has an entertainment district on a near-shore island called Sentosa. It’s attached to Singapore proper by car, walkways and whatnot, and it’s got hotels, beaches, the amusement park, the aquarium, etc. And…a luge ride! Basically motorless go-carts. One day in November, Nyan went with Jayden and his family. 

You have to ride a ski lift-style cable car to get to the site. Pretty great views from up there! 

And finally, the ride itself! 

Not much more to say. I think Nyan was a little nervous ahead of time, having never done this before, but he had an absolute blast and is already making plans to return!
