GLORY layout

I started scrapbooking. Thot I'd do a LO that is different. But now....I'm stuck.

I call this LO "GLORY" because I know Jonathan is always surrounded by the Lord's glory.

I used string art (something I learned in primary school) to do the corner borders but made a mistake in the middle and got stuck. So now I've asked a good friend to give me some suggestions. Hope I can do something nice with this LO.

Well...the annual health check by the National Health Board for school students started.

This year, I heard the Health Board decided to give injections to 11 and 12 year-old students. Previously, it was only for 12 year-olds but because some students don't turn up, they end up not having that compulsory jab when they leave for secondary schools.

So...the Health Board decided that if the 11 year-old students don't turn up for the jab, they will still get it next year when they are 12 years old.

Today was the pre-checkup. They did the eye check and our prince Jonathan has perfect 9-9 eyesight! Praise the Lord. This I say despite the fact that he watches alot of youtube and television (all from a far distant of course!)

How do they test the eyes? Instead of alphabets and numbers that we are normally shown, our children in the Special School are shown symbols. They have square, circle, plus sign and star. So they start with the biggest image from the first level and go all the way down to the 6th stage which is pretty small for my eyes if I don't put on my glasses.

They have a symbol board for the children to point if they are non-verbal like Jonathan. But because Jonathan's motorskills were not that strong, I had to ask him if it's the star, the square, the plus sign or the circle and he point to yes or no signs. For each level he answered correctly in front of the Health Board nurse and our school nurse.

I'm grateful to God for this. An answered prayer for me! Hallelujah!

Jonathan hardly does this: "Smile, extend his hand and greet".

This he did....yesterday, Saturday afternoon, when my mum, aka mama (grandma), came over for lunch with Uncle Kevin.

When mum comes, the first thing she does is go to Jonathan and call his name. She calls him Kai Ming all the time.

Normally, this prince, will either take a short look or extend only his hand when I push him to. But yesterday, it was different. He looked at his mama, extended his hand and gave her a two-sound greeting. I believe it was "hello" or "mama". Mum was very happy.

Mum makes an effort to talk to Jonathan. She will ask him questions, etc. Yesterday, she played peek-a-boo with him...haha! So cute on my mum's part. Maybe that's why whenever she comes, Jonathan puts in that extra effort to greet her.

I'm very proud of him for doing that and I thankful for my mum's presence in Jonathan's life.
