My Thoughts on Homeschool Co-ops, Communities and Special Activities

When Pablo was 3 years old, I decided to put together a small play group for him. Fortunately for us, many of our friends from church gave birth to their kids around the same time Pablo came into our lives. Two of these kids – Jaden and Danae – remain constants in his life (thank God for technology!). And although seasons have changed and they no longer see each other as often as they used to, they still consider each other friends, support each other at every chance they get, and trust each other. Those play group days were a lot […]

Theater Alert: AIYT’s Madagascar, A Musical Adventure

When Atlantis Theatrical announced the launch of Atlantis Imaginarium Young Theatre (AIYT), it was definitely news that was well-received in our home. One of the things we do is expose our children to the arts – including and especially theater, and having more options on shows that cater to their age level works very well for us. We had the opportunity to see AIYT’s first offering, Madagascar, A Musical Adventure, based on Dreamworks’ hit, Madagascar, at their opening night last August 2. Despite the heavy rains, audiences young and old alike, trooped to the theater to cheer, applaud, dance, and move it, […]

Highly Recommended: Superbook Season 4 on ABS CBN

”My God is not weak!’‘ David says indignantly right before his sword went down on Goliath’s neck, marking the giant’s defeat. This scene was part of A Giant Adventure episode from Superbook which I received a copy of from Superbook and CBN Asia. I’ve always loved the story of David. His is a story of a true worshiper of God who leaned on Him and walked His purpose. I wasn’t able to go to the Media Conference because of a conflict with my kids’ schedule, but Superbook has always been my favorite since I was a child. It was one […]

Wika’y Galing at The Learning Library

Lukas and Judah attended Wika’y Galing classes at The Learning Library BGC this summer, and it turned out to be a wonderful experience for both of them. As you must know by now, my kids aren’t speakers of the language yet, but Pablo, our eldest, has been trying harder to use it recently, with admirable progress, I must say. As for the two younger kids, The Learning Library in BGC was really a Godsend. Pablo and Lukas attended their summer classes at their Makati branch two years ago, but we’ve decided to keep all special classes – dance, theater, academic […]
