Walking Around The Village

I needed to fetch Faith early today so we can attend her Kumon but then when I got to school, they’re not done yet. The teacher told me that they are having a small birthday party. One of her classmates is celebrating her 9th birthday. We waited there for a long while since the snacks did not come yet. And I was sure we will not be able to get to her Kumon on time then I realized also that I wasn’t able to bring the Kumon worksheets. So it would be a waste of effort if we still go there.

I promised Faith that I will be walking her around the village before memorizing the Multiplication table. So when we arrived home, Faith changed her clothes right away then we walk around the village. She had a great time though especially when we dropped by at our friend’s house.

She had a blast today but right after she cried because of the Multiplication table. I asked her to memorize them but she tends to forget what number is next. We are still up to 6 though and I was planning for her to master the Multiplication table at least next month.

Too Busy Today, We Went To Magallanes Condominium

The road is very quiet, after the incident last night, everyone I guess just stayed home except us. The moment I went out from work, I have to fetch the kids to send them to Kumon. I supposed to meet them in Kumon, but I did not let them commute this time because of the incident last night. It is dangerous for them to ride a Jeepney.

I need to have the horn of my car repair so I send them to Kumon first; I leave them there for 30 minutes so I can look for someone to repair the horn of my car. Good thing the repair shop just near at Kumon, I was thinking to grocery shop but I just brush the idea.

After Kumon, we went to Magallanes Condominium. Mj needs to have training for her swimming since she will represent her school for DAPRISA. She needs to have some air so to survive during the competition.

While we are there, Faith meets a new baby friend, a 2 year old baby who is a resident there. They have so much fun, they were able to ride in a see saw, climbing and do the monkey bar. Faith is now behaving but she can’t stop talking.

Battle Of The Band Soon

I am so excited for this month. I can finally watch the performance of my eldest daughter on their Linggo ng Wika. Probably it will be held on the last week of this month. They have this competition called “Battle of the Band” and she is one of the participants, she is the base in her group. I saw her practice once but they are already almost finishing when I arrive. I forgot my phone in the car so I was not able to take a picture of her strumming her guitar. But just watching her makes me so proud. They practice at school when they get the chance. That’s why I am thinking to buy her the electro harmonix, it is a sound retainer compression effects. I actually don’t know how it can improve the sound effects of her playing the guitar, Mj should know after all she knows everything about music. I can’t wait to see her perform, thank GOD that the school has this kind of activity in their school. I could not even be contented and happier seeing her so happy with her new school.

Under The Heat Of The Sun

Since Mj and I are so seldom to be together since she is not yet swimming for her training, I always posted Faith’s updates instead since I am already the one monitoring her updates at school. I could not take pictures of Mj as well unlike before since she is already a teenager and she somewhat enjoyed her being a slight independent. Her school now keeps her busy from projects, assignments, exams and even other activities. Recently she is an official Girl Scout member; they had this pledge at school that it made her very tired when she got home. She said that they were under the sun for like a half day, they have to do some pledge for their Girl Scouting, they also have to listen to some programs that were scheduled for them. She could not wait for their camping that would happen very soon.

When the program was finish, she didn’t wasted any time and she went to the carpool right away. It was so hot that she could not contained it anymore, their carpool had an aircon so it helps her freshen up. There is one wish that I would like Mj to have and that is a certificate, proving that she finished the school until college. I have a trust in her that she would finish, if she would concentrate more on her studies.
