Celebrating United Nations

Every 24th day of October, different countries celebrate the United Nations Day including the Philippines. Schools would prepare for this big event; students usually wear different national costumes of different countries. This year, the school of my son has this theme: Peace and Unity to Everyone.

The school management encouraged each student to be creative with the costumes; it doesn’t have to be expensive and can even reuse a costume that was used last year. So, my son reused his costume last year which is for Vietnam.

He still looks confident and happy with his costumes and I’m proud of him. One of the costumes that caught my eye is the costume of his classmate, who is representing the Philippines.

Projects at School

There have been a lot of days wherein classes were suspended. Because of the bad weather school officials are forced to suspend their classes even if it will affect the school’s calendar of activities. Because of these, lessons of the students are affected. Some schools would mandate their students to come to school on Saturdays to keep up with the days lost but some schools would just give special projects to their students like writing research paper or giving them long tests.

In the case of my son who is in Grade 2, their school didn’t extend their school days to Saturdays instead they gave them different projects in each subject. Aside from that, their teachers gave them a contract form wherein they need to do several activities at their books and they set a deadline for it. Students who will be able to do the activities early would receive an additional grade. I have been guiding my son with his projects and activities so he could keep up with his classmates, good thing he doesn’t need to know on how to do a research paper yet, but I know soon, I have to teach him that also.

How about you, what activities did your kids have to keep up with the lost days because of our bad weather?

A gift for Mama

It was my mother-in-law’s birthday last Sunday. We don’t have a gift for her yet aside from the food that we brought at their home that day. We were thinking of giving her an eyeglass which she really needs as she is having a hard time reading. But buying a good and stylish eyeglass can be expensive. Good thing, Firmoo Global Online Optical Store is giving away free glasses for bloggers! And since I am a trying hard blogger, why not grab this chance. I have chosen this one:

I hope my mother-in-law will like the eyeglasses and I’m sure Firmoo’s glasses is of high quality as taken from their website:

Firmo is the emerging global online optical store of prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses. Years of expertise in optical industry enable Firmoo.com to offer varieties of prescription eyewear to the consuming public in high quality yet at extremely affordable prices.

Dancing for the Lord

My son (the one wearing longs sleeves shirt) joined the Dance Ministry of The Pasig Feast. The community where we go every Sunday for mass and worship. It’s the second Sunday that he danced and though he is not that good yet I still enjoy watching him dance with the group. He is the youngest among the group and he serves as an inspiration to the kids that they can dance also. This song was not included in the practice, the group didn’t know that it would be included that Sunday but as they dance it seems they know the steps after all. I would refer this dance as impromptu dance. Congratulations to the group for pulling a nice dance! And I hope my son would be a better dancer in the future.

My Dream

Every Sunday, we attend The Feast at Valle Verde. It is a mass, worship and teaching. While the grown ups are listening to the preacher, the kids have their own ministry as well, it is called Awesome Kids. We play, we pray and we listen as well. Our topic is the same as the topic for the grown ups so last Sunday’s topic was about planning our dream. We were asked to color something and write our dream.

dream - detective

I didn’t know the spelling of “detective” but when I showed this to mom, she told me the right spelling. Why detective? I just want to be like Detective Conan. :D

Daddy and me: Bato Bato Pick with Daddy

Just as I shared on my previous post, last Sunday was the Feast of Sto.Nino at my father’s side. He has work that day so he wasn’t able to see me during the parade. When he arrived, he was still tired so he has to rest for a while and I ask him to play with me. The classic, Bato bato pick.

As usual, Mommy is holding her camera and asked us to pose for her first so we smiled willingly for her.

Kids In Doodles: Clown’s Side Kick

Not like other kids, I am not afraid of clowns. They are part of every kid’s birthday celebration at my Daddy’s hometown. Even when I celebrated my first birthday, clowns are my guests. That’s why when I attended my classmate’s seventh birthday I volunteered as his “side kick” together with another kid when the clown asked for a volunteer.


JJ with clown


This was just a classic act wherein water would come out from the other openings of the body without getting wet. Like, water getting out of my ear while the other kid is pumping my hand. It was fun! My classmates and other guests were laughing so hard.
