Soccer mom stays home

Pablo’s been asking for soccer for years.  Four years, to be exact. This home school year, the Lord finally allowed us to fulfill our promise to our son. We took him to his first soccer class at ASCOM Soccer Field last Tuesday afternoon.  The kids in his class were already so good at it! My eyes almost popped out my head when the goalie three years Pablo’s junior jumped so high and hit the ball with his forehead. And Pablo…well, he obviously didn’t understand the rules of the game yet and he looked like he didn’t know what he was doing half of […]

PDF-ready for home school year 2014

This home school year 2014 is different for us. For one thing, Lukas is entering Kinder level and is already required by the Department of Education to enroll with a DepEd-approved umbrella school. We’re home schooling him, of course, and though going independent has been a huge consideration for years, we’re putting our faith in God’s provision and enrolled him under Peniel Christian Academy along with our 9-year old, Pablo. Late last year, Jay and I also agreed to move their  Music, Arts and P.E. classes within our vicinity. For years, we’ve been with our South-based co-op but it was […]

Sometimes, my kids bring their activities to […]

1st HAPI Homeschoolers’ Talent Fair 2011

Jay came home rather late the day before. It was the last day of VBC and he was one of the people in charge of the activities, it being a Kids Ministry event. I opened up the package and saw that the frames he bought to hold Pablo’s oil pastel works were broken. It was 8:30pm. Shopwise closes at 11pm and we weren’t even sure if they have the kind of frames that we needed. Nevertheless, we donned the kids up and headed out to take our chances. We got back home before midnight, put the kids to bed, cleaned up the mess […]

10 Things Every Homeschooling Family Should Know

I’ve recently finished 3 E-books on homeschooling. I’ve long fell in love with the concept upon getting to know 3 homeschoolers who impressed me with their character at their very young ages of 5, 9 & 10 years old — their understanding of the Word of God & their relationships with Jesus, their parents & their families, their above-par ability to go forward to speak or participate, and the genuine quality of their confidence & attitude in relating to people of different ages, status & nationalities. I have seen beautiful children who are regular school-goers and I applaud their parents […]
