Wonderful Wednesday with Oh My Heartsie Girls

What a busy week we have here!

As the end of my term in NYC is coming to an emd, we have many farewell parties amd courtesy calls to make. Not to mention the packing!

It was really a bone-and-back-breaking rituals, but I have to admit I enjoyed it.
At least a bit.
Writing down all those items in the packing list, making sure they are well packed and secured.
As always, we have last minute shopping and fingers-breaking-amazon time :).
Now we’re ready!
The container is coming on Tuesday and here we go!

The last days of school has been wonderful as well saddening at the same time.

Can't believe time flies and we are staying here for almost 4.5 years now!
My kids really enjoy their school and they have so many wonderful friends.
For this year, both my kids got honor rolls, alhamdulillah.
My son was inducted as one of the members of National Junior Honor Society and we were so grateful. 

He got the honor class but we all will move to Indonesia.
I sincerely hope Bo et Obi will enjoy their schools as well in Jakarta, insya Allah.

Now let's have our party!

Bo's Winter Concert

Have I told you before that Bo joined the school band and played trombone ;)?

Ahaaa.. Trombone it is :).

It all started last fall when Bo's music class offered any kids who were interested to join a band or a chorus. Bo chose the band. And when he came home with the permission slip, he told us that he wanted to play trombone. The other choices were flute, clarinet, alto sax, and trumpet. Seruuuu ya :) #langsungterbayangfullband #NewOrleansmodeon 

Well, he played recorder in the 3rd grade and Udi, my hubby, has introduced him to guitar as well. Sementara mamanya teuteup dengan tamborin andalan dan suara altonya hehehe. Kalau Obi, asyik dengan suara cemprengnya dan suling Abang yang ditiup sekenanya. But trombone? Never crossed our minds :).

pilih yang manaaa ayoo :)

Singkat cerita, perjalanan musik Bo pun dimulai. Karena trombone bukan alat musik yang murah dan sebagai percobaan, oleh guru musiknya Bo, Mr. Blake, kami diminta untuk menyewa tenor trombone untuk Bo.  Dengan begitu, kalau ternyata Bo berubah pikiran pun, kami tidak perlu menghabiskan banyak biaya.

We went to Laconia Music in for renting the trombone and as always, I always love to see all those musical instruments.

I just to see them all..

Dan bicara tentang trombone, alat musik tiup yang satu ini memang khas sekali. Baik bunyi yang dihasilkan maupun cara memainkannya. Dari hasil ngintip di Wikipedia, trombone sendiri berasal dari bahasa Itali yang artinya terompet besar. 

Dan entah mengapa, dari sekian banyak alat musik yang tersedia dan ditawarkan oleh sekolah, Bo memilih trombone. Saya bolak-balik tanya, beneran Bo mau coba trombone. Mamanya masih ngg percaya kalau anaknya bisa jadi trombonist atau pemain trombone hehehe. Orang alat musiknya aja hampir seukuran Bo tingginya. Tapi tentu saja, I have faith in Bo for sure.

Dan ternyata tidak mudah memainkannya ;). 
It is definitely note that easy at all to play it. I tried it several times, with the instructions from Bo, but still not succeeded. Fail..again and again. It is not just blowing it like when we play a recorder, but you have to do it with a slow, smooth air. Whatever that means LoL :).

But Bo manages to play it. And I guess he nails it ;p.
They practice twice a week during school time, particularly in the preparation of the concert.

Bo and his trombone :)

So, after 2 months of exercise, using Standard of Excellence 1, the school band held its winter concert.
Seperti tahun sebelumnya, band sekolah Bo pun mengundang para orang tua untuk hadir dalam konser musim dingin. Tidak hanya orang tua yang anak-anaknya ikut dalam band, tapi semua. Ramai juga yang hadir, karena auditorium sekolah Bo penuh. Dan tepat pukul 7 malam, konser dimulai.

let the concert begin :)

Konser terbagi menjadi 3 sesi, yang menampilkan band kelas 4, kelas 5 dan kelompok band terpilih. Karena Bo bergabung di kelas 4, maka Bo dan grupnya tampil lebih dahulu. Seperti yang disampaikan Mr. Blake, guru musik mereka, jumlah anggota band kelas 4 kali ini memecahkan rekor terbanyak selama ini karena antusiasme anak-anak yang tinggi. Mau lihat video pendeknya? silahkaaaan...

Meskipun komposisi musik yang ditampilkan masih terbilang sederhana karena pada prinsipnya mereka baru memulai latihan dan rata-rata baru pertama kali memegang alat musik yang mereka mainkan, tapi bangga melihat anak-anak tampil dengan penuh percaya diri mengekspresikan kecintaan mereka pada musik. Saya sendiri ngga bisa memainkannya karena memang susah :).
I am soooo overwhelmed to see them up there. And my eyes watered :). 
Maaf kalau mama Bo et Obi jadi cengeng yaaaa ;p #ambiltissue #sedotingus

bravoooo Bo :)

Untuk band kelas 5, mereka menampilkan komposisi musik yang lebih panjang  dengan selingan beberapa lagu natal. Sementara untuk band pilihan, bahkan mereka memainkan Wrecking Ballnya Miley Cyrus dengan komposisi mereka sendiri. Baguuuus lhooo..

So, all in all, konser musim dingin kali ini seru sekaligus membanggakan. 
Have you watch the school concert like this as well?

Bo et Obi's Open School Week

Last week was Bo et Obi's open school week. As usual, parents are invited to come to school and observe the kids at their class for one hour. Udi and I certainly don't wanna miss it :).

So last Wednesday we went to Obi's class to join others in this ocassion. They were drawing Thanksgiving-related items and coloring them. And Obi chose to draw her purple-and-orange turkey.

gobble, gobble..

In Obi's music class, the kids learned a new song. I forget to ask the title >_< but it's about the hunter walking in the forrest and shooting his arrow to the air. Mrs. Robinson, the music teacher, mimed it and the kids try to guess what is in the lyrics.

We got to meet Lulu as well, the singing giraffe in the class :).

say hi to Lulu :)

It was fun for the kids indeed.
And also us, the parents :).

On Friday, it was Bo's turn.

As for Bo's class, they were working on the latest chapter on their social studies book, about the lives of native Americans. They were making the traditional bird feeder inspired by the native Americans by using cheerios, pancake/maple syrup, and pine cone. 

that's how you do it :)

The picture above is what Bo and his friends made at school that morning.

Simple yet very interesting indeed.
Bird feeder, the American natives way.

ready to hang them..

Using Cheerios (crushed into crumbs), maple/pancake syrup, pine cone and small rope, they started making one by
tighting the rope at the bottom of the pine cone. Set it aside then mix the crumbs and syrup, then spread it all over the pine cone :).
And voilaaa... The bird feeder is ready.

How the kids enjoy this session with their parents. Pounding the tables while crushing the cheerios, mixing the look-oh-so-disguisting gooey syrup with the crumbs, then dipping the pine cone to it... Let alone the messy tables, which, fortunately have been covered by plastic garbage bag.

Once the bird feeders where well dried and ready, they put and hang them on the trees outside on the following Monday.

The day before the teacher has sent a permission slip noting whether the kids have any allergies to the ingredients being used as well permission for taping of video of photography for the school documentations. 

During the open school week, we also have the book fair and Bo managed to get Captain Underpantz comic while Obi got her super Barbie one.

Well, it was quite a fun week for the kids and the parents indeed.

Do you have open school week as well at your kid's school? What activities that you enjoy most during that week?
