Sunday, April 24, 2016    Sometimes Jun goes into the Amazon Prime box to spend time alone. He even tries to close the box flaps and make his whole body fit inside. Jun’s play brings to mind my own childhood memory of making a small shelter using three umbrellas with my brother.
  Saturday, September 3, 2016    Jun brought home some cosmos flowers in his hands from a walk with my mom.
  Friday, April 1, 2016    Jun collects transparent pieces from his Legos and he calls them “Treasures.”
  Saturday, May 28, 2016    I was exhausted from an hour of play in the pool with Jun.I fell asleep to the annoying noise of Jun punching holes in paper. When I woke up this was left for me.
  Wednesday, March 23, 2016    My mom brought an inflatable globe for Jun from Korea. He enjoys dribbling it around the house. He learned to do this at school, and will dribble for so long that he breaks into a sweat.

  Sunday, October 23, 2016    I found a bag of maple cotton candy at a farmer’s market. I would try not to feed the candy to Jun because it could cause cavities, but I thought it would not be as bad for tooth decay as regular cotton candy.
  Sunday, February 21, 2016    Jun was 3 years old, and he needed a high chair for his mealtime.
  Sunday, October 30, 2016    On Jun’s birthday last summer, we bought two pots of lavender from Lowe’s. We planted them in our garden plot. Due to the scorching summer sun, one of the pots of lavender died. Summer is done. Fall is coming. The temperature had dropped a lot this morning. I was worried that the lavender would freeze, so I dug it out from the garden plot and planted it in a sunny place beside the stairs.
  Tuesday, February 16, 2016    I woke up to a snowstorm alert on my phone. The Village was buried under snow and the school was closed. I shoveled snow for an hour and a half and I was dead tired while Jun was super excited digging a snow tunnel. He exclaimed, “The best day ever!” but that was my worst day ever.
