PS 122 in winter

Bo’s school this morning. …

Brrr…so cold and the snow was just hurdling down with the wind..
We didn’t get a chance to pose for our daily selfie today due to the cold and the heavy snow ❄❄❄. Well, it’s better getting him safe and warm inside quickly before the cold bites.
But for sure, he’s in high spirit for the gym today…Way to go Bang :).

Have fun at school ya bang.. – with Rudi, Bo, and Obi

❄❄❄❄ –

Sepertinya, hari ini adalah hari yang paling dingin..Minus 14 sajaaa saudara-saudaraaaa ;o. Untungnya kami semua sudah siap. Yuuup, suka tidak suka, winter is here to stay, so better get ready, people :).

Minggu sesudah natal kami sekeluarga sudah melengkapi winter gear yang ada. Mulai dari thermal underwear, insulated jacket, gloves and beanies, sampai kaos kaki extra hangat. Benar-benar membantu lhoooo.

And frankly, winter di NYC beda deeeh rasanya dengan winter di Jenewa. Walaupun Swiss notabene dikelilingi pegunungan salju juga, tapi winter di Jenewa jarang dihiasi dengan angin yang merontokkan tulang seperti di NYC. Mungkin karena NYC memang dikelilingi sumber air alias sungai yang besar-besar seperti Hudson and East river, sementara Jenewa hanya ada Lac leman (yang super besar juga sebenernya). Entahlah..yang pasti , kesimpulannya winter di Jenewa lebih hangat :).

Well,Β mari kita nikmatiΒ winterΒ pertama di NYC ini πŸ™‚

Wake up, Bo …

Ada yang masih bobooo niiih… padahal udah jam 7 pagi hehehe

Setelah semalem bacain mama buku winter days in the big woods, Bo kecapean kayaknya :). Ceritanya, selama home schooling sambil tunggu rumah dan daftar sekolah untuk termin berikutnya, Bo banyak latihan baca dan matematika di rumah, Mostly sama Bapak, karena mama kerja hiiks. Tapi kalau malam, drilling baca giliran mamaaa…so, last night, we managed to finish Winter Days in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Yuup…ini buku favorit mama, terus ditulis ulang dan dibuat edisi bergambar untuk anak-anak.

Bagus deh.cerita diambil dari penggalan buku aslinya dengan hanya mengambil segmen musim dingin. Di sini laura cerita bagaimana mereka mempersiapkan musim dingin..mulai dari Pa yang setiap hari berburu untuk persediaan daging mereka, Ma dan anak-anak, termasuk Laura dan Mary, her sister, yang berkebun dan memanen hasilnya untuk disimpan selama musim dingin, sampai membersihkan rumah :). Terus Laura juga cerita serunya musim dingin..mulai dari bermain di kaca penuh embun dan salju sampai snowball. Quite entertaining deh pokoknya…

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do Bo :)…

Our first winter trip…

This blog has been intended to immortatlize my memories, – or ours to be exact, regarding Bo and Obi.

Well, I will start my story from out first winter trip back in 2007. I knooow, I knoow…it was almost 7 year ago..but it is still worth to tell it..

For sure, Bo was not the only happy person at that time…Mama Bo (Obi was not born yet πŸ™‚ ) and Bapak Udi were having fun, too…

I remember it was quite a sunny day at Col de Mossess, one of the famous winter spots near Geneve, Switzerland…well, I guess it is located in Canton Vaud, around 2.5 hours from Genve by car. The trip to the top was quite an experience itself..Curvy roads heading up to the mountain and snow made it challenging, let alone my hubby who was not that experienced with snow road. But we managed to arrive safe and sound and ready to hit the snoooow…

Bo was only 11 months at that time..but he sure loved the toboggan, sledding in snow, while Bapak Udi learnt how to ski….

Oooh, lovely days…..

Check out these photos and you’ll see how happy we were…
