From Daddy: Above is a montage of photos from his Orange Belt exam!
From Daddy: We are proud of our Orange Belt! Click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4tCr_0_AwM to see his exam.
He was happy to put on the new belt!
From Daddy: Three weeks ago (during the week of July 17 – 21, 2017), he was a Junior Counselor at the Bay Area Discover Museum. Essentially he was too old (go figure!) to be a student in their camps, so he became a junior counselor instead!
He assisted the main counselor Jackson. In fact, a couple of the campers did not really speak English, so he helped with Cantonese while Jackson knew some Mandarin.
Each morning, he attended a meeting full of adult counselors before the campers arrived.
It sounded like a great experience! When I arrived home at the end of the day, I would ask him how was work!
Super-Hero Poses Through the Years
(The original inspiration for the super-hero pose was Pocoyo. Click above to watch the episode.)
From Daddy: He really enjoyed this week at MV Code Club as well as breakfasts at Mel’s Drive In on Monday and Friday mornings. Mel’s is only about one block from Code Club and Monday’s would be his birthday breakfast.
By the second day of camp, he wanted to demonstrate his “work.”
On the third day, he could show the code (in Scratch) that he created for a game!
A great week of camp and we look forward to weekly afternoon classes in the fall!
Speaking of his birthday, he enjoyed this Mario Mini Radio Control Kart!

From Daddy: Two months ago, I took him to dinner at Nation’s in Daly City. He didn’t exactly know where we were going and honestly his liking burgers consistently was still relatively new and uncertain to me. However, Nation’s did not disappoint and he loved his cheeseburger. Since then, he’s been pleased to eat every burger we’ve given him. He doesn’t have one often, but it’s good to know that we have another go-to thing to eat.
From Daddy: Our new favorite podcast is Wow in the World. It’s cute, fun, makes him laugh often, and teaches him science. #trypod. We recently listened to the episode “Cuckoo For Cocoa: Journey To The Chocolate Forests Of South America.”
From Daddy: He thinks Nate is fun and I think Nate is cute. One thing is certain: We love his show! We recently listened to episode 029 about the March for Science https://www.acast.com/showaboutscience/029-marching-for-science-and-extraterrestrials-with-luoth-chou. Science is important! #trypod San Francisco! Science!
He was also great The Ellen Show!
