We’ve been meaning to take the kids to Penang in Bethesda because it has all the dishes we loved to eat when we were living in Singapore. When I ask Vince about his memories of Singapore, it’s clear he still has a bunch, but many things he can’t remember anymore. It’s hard to remember things that happened to you when you were 3 or 4 years old.
We went to Penang to celebrate Vince being on the honor roll this past quarter. It’s been a hard first quarter of middle school for him – the amount of schoolwork that he needs to do has really been overwhelming and it takes up a lot of his time. There have been tears and less time with his pals just goofing around.
