Educational Fieldtrip at Art in Island 3D Museum in Cubao 

It was Kuya Angelo’s fieldtrip yesterday and his day was full of fun filled activities. One thing that I learned here in the Philippines is that school are requiring kids to bring companion with them. 

Luckily last minute Tita Racel decided to bring her girls and her yaya so Angelo can still come since I can’t be with him. 

Their first stop is at La Mesa Ecopark where he experienced Bunjee Jumping.

   
    
    
 After lunch they head over to Art Island. It is located in Brgy. Socorro, Cubao, Quezon City near Gateway Mall, Araneta Center, Ali Mall, Cubao Expo, etc.

If you are looking for a new fun thing to do in Manila. Or if you are in the middle of organizing a field trip, excursion, team activity you may want to consider this fun interactive museum in Cubao, a new attraction in the Metro.

Wow that’s unexpected! Good Job Kuya Angelo…

When we moved back I really don’t have plans of enrolling you to a regular school because we want you to rest first. You just finished your grade 1 and we thought that you deserve a long break.

But at the back of my mind I want you to fully understand the culture of being filipino and socializing with new environment would be helpful.

First few months were really struggle because we never used to have every day assignments and quiz. But in the long run we managed to adapt the new school. You love your teachers and classmates but hated waking up in the morning. 

Today we got your report card and I was surprised to found out that you are part of the honor roll. I wasn’t expecting a lot considering we had a hard time learning the Filipino and Sibika subjects. But you made it! You are one of the Bronze awardee for the whole Primary Department. 
 Im in awe seeing your grades with high mark. We are so proud of you! Continue to soar high my son! We love you!

Happy 2nd Birthday #chinitoinigo

  

 Two years! I watch you sleeping and I can’t believe you’re already two! I remember how tiny you were when you were born. You came out a bit too early and we got worried if you will be okay. Well, nothing to worry about because slowly, the little baby grew into a precious little boy!  

   

Two years. I cherish every moment. I learned how big my heart is because I met you.I learned that I could give until there was almost nothing to give. I learned how far I could go without getting regrets of becoming a mother of three. I learned that a life of chaos with you and your siblings could be so fun! I haven’t learned everything yet, so if I fail you sometimes, please be patient with mommy. I will try again.

   You have the sweetest little voice and my goodness, you are talking so well. Communicating with you has gotten more and more fun because you can tell us what you need and want and you are speaking in full sentences. You even starting using your manners “excuse me please, thank you & you’re welcome bulol nga lang

  
You are smart, #chinitoinigo. It’s amazing what you understand and can communicate to us. You have such a loving heart. Sometimes you will grab my hand and say “UP UP” so we can play hide and seek. It is so much fun to see you interact with Nanay Celda and Lolo Bossing.You call Lolo Bossing”Boboss” and light up when you see him. And you and Boboss have a very special relationship. You love eating beside him and mimick him especially when he’s teaching you kalokohan.He loves you and plays with you and you two have a wonderful bond that I have loved getting to see grow! 

One of my favorite relationships that I have loved watching blossom is with our princess. From day one, you have been smitten to her- but in the last few months as you’ve gotten old enough to really play and love on her, you two have become the best of friends. You loves chasing her around, messing her around, singing with her, playing with her, and snuggling with her. Your love for each other radiates from both of you when you’re around each other. It is one of the most precious things I have ever witnessed… and I know it will only grow stronger. Princess Isabelle must be very lucky girl to have you!

Your dad and I talk about you all the time… we feel so lucky that you are our baby boy. You are building such a strong relationship with both of us and I know you will always be one of my best friends. I have so many special memories from the last 2 years. I feel beyond blessed – you are so unbelievably loved. What a privilege and thrill to get to watch you continue on this adventure through your life. You are such a gift

Learning through play – V is for Vegetable..

Hi there!!Whee.. can’t remember when was the last time I blog. 

It is becoming the season of cold weather here in Philippines. Not to mention its been rainy too, which means lots more indoor time (and sadly not nearly enough outdoor time to burn off their energy).

For our lunch today Nanay Celda cooked Pork Sinigang and I asked her if I can have a few bits of the vegetables. #chinitoinigo has been bugging me to do art activities again. If he’ll not ask for paper and pencil he will begged to paint using watercolor.

  
Today we made quick and easy fine motor activity — just for this occasion. Because, man, when you *need* one, you really, really need one, right?to ensure that your busy baby has something productive to keep him occupied.  

How about vegetable painting? Sounds fun right?!

  
Who says vegetable are just for eating when you can make a great artwork out of it.

While things could get messy, it allows him to embrace his creativity and hone his artistic skills.
