Finishing Strong

by

As students from conventional schools are ending their school year this week and next week, Coby is just a few weeks away from completing his third grade. Hopefully, we end just before his 9th birthday, which falls on a Holy Week, again 🙂 I have already expressed in my previous blog that this year has […] Read more…

Move the Body, Awaken the Mind

by

Reposting an old blog post. I came across this article the other day about why kids fidget in school. According to the writer, studies show that kids who were given time for physical activities were more receptive in class and had their brains “awaken” by the freedom to move. Then, I remembered I had written a […] Read more…

Rush Rush

by

Rush…Hurry…Hasten…Run… I asked Coby to read aloud his lesson in Language this morning. I noticed he was rushing through the paragraph without even stopping for the periods. I called his attention and reminded him to read slowly and with understanding. I would often catch him at times doing that, rushing himself to complete a task, […] Read more…

Our Little One Can Read

by

Homeschooling this year is different than the previous years. Primarily, because I have a new student. Our youngest, Jianne, just entered Kindergarten this school year. I have no idea how to divide my time between a third-grader and a preschooler. But again, I know that if God calls me to do this seemingly impossible task, […] Read more…

Jonah, Katie, and Matthew learn in different ways. All three students have different learning styles. The Science teacher explains the leaf system in class.

I received a phone call from my editor-friend, Beng Alba, two weeks ago. She said that she recommended me to fill in for her as a storyteller for a book table event of OMF Lit Pergola. I was surprised that she would even think of me, gosh! I would only read stories to my kids […] Read more…

A 100-Peso Afternoon with the Kids

by

After days of rain, rain and more rain, the sun finally came out today… well, let’s just say, the sun just peaked through the clouds.  I thought of bringing the kids to the park or the soccer field in Ayala Alabang but I remembered the grass might still be wet and we might end up […] Read more…

Ligo Sardines Levels Up

Disclaimer:  I am not a professional food critic nor am I a product reviewer.  Just sharing my two cents on certain food products my family consumed over the last month or so. This would be the first time I would be “reviewing” a product in my blog.  Well, this post is not really a review but […] Read more…

New Family Routine Brings Blessings

by

Our family’s Sunday night routine recently included a family devotions hour.  I have been wanting to start this “ritual” with my family but I have yet to allow my husband to initiate it.  Good thing our pastor introduced the family devotions booklet to the congregation last Sunday and my husband was encouraged  to start spending […] Read more…

To Multi-task or not to Multi-task

by

(Imported from my previous blog) Women, or more precisely, moms have been known to be great at the science of multitasking.  I, for one, has succumb to the call of the times to do hundreds of things all at the same time.  In my pursuit to juggle the daunting task of raising kids, managing a […] Read more…
