The Big Shift

by

I have shared in my earlier post that my husband and I were contemplating on moving to a different homeschool provider. Last week, we took the plunge and enrolled under Peniel Integrated Christian Academy (Homeschool). The principal, Teacher Au, briefed me on their requirements and what she expects from the parents. When she learned that we have […] Read more…

Gearing Up for Year Five

by

It’s been a year and a half since we moved in to this apartment. Even though the rent is higher than our first apartment, this current one is much better. I don’t know how many times we have reorganized our home  and our homeschool area but I feel that our “makeover” this year will not only conducive to […] Read more…

Time for a Cool Change

by

I’m so happy to know that the number of homeschooling families in the Philippines have increased significantly. I have talked to other young parents who are planning to homeschool their toddlers, even their babies too when the time comes. Our family has been enrolled in this homeschool provider A for four years. Their system is […] Read more…

Required to Learn

by

Every quarter of our school year, Coby is required to create an output or a project that would be included in his quarterly portfolio. I’m not such a fan of this requirement of TMA but I’ve learned to love the process throughout these years. The output has allowed Coby to think out of the box […] Read more…

VBS 2013

by

This summer was Jianne’s second time to join Vacation Bible School. She was so eager to be part of this summer experience again in church. If last year she was sad because she didn’t get any award, this year we all received a surprise. She received the Most Attentive Award for Grade 1! I saw […] Read more…

Quitting Homeschool—Not!

by

In my four years of homeschooling Coby, I could no longer count the times I said, “I’m done!” “This is over!” or “It’s just too hard, I can’t do it anymore!” I guess I’m not the only homeschooling mom who felt this way at least once in their entire homeschooling life. Until one day, I […] Read more…

When Will I Go to School?

Jianne is almost done with school. We are wrapping up her lessons in Preparatory as she would be graduating and moving on to the first grade 1 next school year. It has been her first official year of homeschooling. Official, meaning, she is enrolled her in The Master’s Academy (TMA), our homeschool provider.  When she […] Read more…

Reach for the Goal

by

Today was quite a stressful day for Coby and I. He was asked to review Section One of his Language Arts Lifepac booklet after which he would take a Self Test. After giving him time to go back on the previous lessons, he quickly answered the first test. Unfortunately, upon checking, he did not make […] Read more…

No Woman is an Island

by

When I look back at the faithfulness of God in my life, I couldn’t help but stand in awe. He has indeed been the one who brought me out of the rut I was in before.  However, I also believe that God used other people to minister to me, to encourage me, to get me […] Read more…

Crafty Li’l Miss

by

This year I “formally” started homeschooling Jianne. By formally I mean, enrolling her under The Master’s Academy Homeschool (TMA) together with Coby. I discovered at the beginning of our school year that Jianne also has a knack for the arts. I thought that the artist in the family is Coby because of his love for […] Read more…
