happy papa's day

HQ: 5y 1m old; QQ: 2y 11m old.

Last Sunday was Father's Day. As there was nothing from school to mark this occassion (Father's Day fell on the last day of school break; HQ starts his new term today), I gathered the kids for a simple project on that morning.

They were seated at their little table and were given a freehand to write or draw whatever on the art paper. I did not guide QQ and just let her scribble anything that she wants... here's an "A", a "1" and an "O". And she said she drew fishes, birds and flowers (I can't make those out :-)). QQ holds her pencil perfectly since very young, but I would say HQ draws and writes better (compare apple to apple at the same age). QQ, on the other hand, dances and sings very well :-).
Sad to say, HQ has lose interest in drawing long long time ago, and will not draw more than hearts and stars on this ocassion. And a flag. I really missed his drawings.HQ insisted on writing "Happy Papa Day" instead of Happy Father's Day. He also signed off with his name in both English and Mandarin. He wrote this too - "Papa is a gooD man"... made me laugh :-D.
Later in the evening, we ferried mum, dad and my brother and we ate at a newly opened restaurant in the neighbourhood. Food was nice and too hungry to remember to snap any piccie... so, here's the aftermath of what we had (fish, pork, veg, venison and tofu).
Happy Father's Day to my Dad and to hubby! And to all the fathers out there, Happy Belated Father's Day!
