The Art of Kaelynn

OK, so now I know the whole family (on my Side) are all Arts related despite me being more to the Science/Technical stream. But let's face it, its a struggle even for me. All the time, while I was in Technical, every Artistic ideas/dreams/acts will come flowing out while I try my very best to stem it. And while I was feeding to the Arts side, every technical/engineering/rules, etc wants a share in it too.
(Those who talks to me, will know what I am talking about)

But at my Age now, whatever goes, lah.

But this blog today is not about me anymore, it's about my kids. In genetic terms, they do have some of our traits. My side is more on the Arts, curioisty, imagination and well, spontaneity. I got a wonderful shock today when I walked over to see what Kaelynn was doing as she had finished her homework. Lo and behold!

She copied an image from the cover of a book. At first I thought she just put the paper on top and copied it but no, she actually did it by just looking at the picture! This is something which I cannot even do! A few years ago, her picture was just your run o the mill kiddy scrawls. My Wife downplayed the talent saying its great but this does not encourage creativity...

Well, if she wants to continue with this, I'll let her. (In the meantime, Kristine saw what was happening and she too, started to draw...)
My wife lamented they did not inherit her Science side...

09092014 Kristine's Day Out

After a very long mano et mano chat with my Dad about my current situation and future, I got his blessings to continue doing Scale Model lighting. And not only that, there are plans too since the project that he and my brother was interested, had a lot of risks which, in our opinions, was not worth pursuing.

Anyway, as my Dad needed to get out of the house for two hours, I decided to bring Kristine with me for the whole day.

One thing I would like to note is that she loves to sleep late and at first, I thought it just nothing but then again, she has been doing this since young. And all the while, we capped the girls' Bedtime at 2030. And this morning (sorry, I took out the photo) she actually slept while sitting on bed!

An hour into the office, she has done all her homework her Mommy gave her and.....

Not sure if it was a productive day for her but she got to ride the LRT, learn how to pay for her fares and also, well, see how I work so that she will grow up and study harder...
