Home Hug January Update 2024

23 Jan 2024

As we step into a new year, we are thrilled to share a heartwarming home update from Baan Home Hug that encapsulates the essence of our shared experiences and accomplishments.

In November, Baan Home Hug buzzed with activity as we eagerly participated in the Kathin ceremony at the temple, which is the ceremonial presentation of new robes and gifts to Buddhist monks in Thailand. In the spirit of community and giving, we made various delicious fried snacks to join in the almsgiving festivities.

Venturing into the fields of Baan Rai Rice, we experienced the gratifying harvest season firsthand. The abundance of rice brought a sense of fulfillment, connecting us to the earth and the cycles of nature. It was a wholesome family activity that reinforced our appreciation for the simple joys of life.

Creativity flowed through our home as we engaged in various artistic endeavors. Drawing and coloring activities became a source of delightful souvenirs, capturing moments of laughter and imagination. The discovery of making art with soil-based watercolor paints added an eco-friendly twist to our artistic pursuits, fostering a deep connection to nature.

Our journey into craftsmanship continued as we learned the art of paper mâché using rice straw. The intricate process unveiled the beauty of transforming humble materials into unique pieces of art. Additionally, the vibrant world of tie-dye unfolded before us, guided by the magic of natural dyes. Each creation told a story of patience, skill, and the joy of learning new crafts together.

Celebrating the achievements of our young ones, we are proud to announce Mek's remarkable success in the football competition. With determination and skill, Mek not only represented our household but also advanced to the regional round. This achievement is a testament to the values of discipline, teamwork, and perseverance that we hold dear in our family.

As we reflect on these shared moments of joy, creativity, and success, our home becomes a tapestry woven with the threads of tradition and achievement. We look forward to more adventures and shared experiences in the coming months, enriching the fabric of our home with love, laughter, and growth.
