I thought these white hair strands are mine but it’s not

I asked my youngest daughter to look and pull some white hairs on my head. Every time she will give me strands of hair, it will be long which is impossible because I have a short boy cut hair style. I asked her if it’s the hair of her dolls and she said no. When I told her that she tricked me, that was the time that she’s smiling from ear to ear. And these hair strands are dolls hair. Every time she pulled one of my hair, she will pull some from the dolls. Then she handed me the dolls hair while throwing my hair on the floor. Oh, silly kid!

Beautiful Erindale Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Parks are one of the places where I can bring my kids whenever they are bored of staying in the house. On this day, one of the parks we visited was Erindale Park with the address of 1705 Twin Oaks Dr, Colorado Springs, CO 80918. We had fun staying there for few minutes and then we decided to go home to finish our homeschooling. Life is fun all the time. It’s good sometimes bring the kids out as they need it most.

And I think this park is clean as there are park regulations for people who will bring their pets. Also, alcoholic drinks are prohibited along with golfing, too much noise since it’s near the neighborhood, no fireworks, no motor vehicles and no camping.

There is just one thing that this park is different and that the playground is in the middle of it. So, you have to walk far from the road on where you park your vehicle before you can reach this play area. Another thing is that there is not much parking as you will park along the road which is just fine with me.

All in all, this park is nice and beautiful.

First field trip of the year 201-2017 (Homeschooling)

Today, my kids had so much fun with the homeschooling kick-off field trip. I am thankful that it was held in Colorado Springs, Colorado as I did not need to drive away from the city. The kids were having fun playing with their classmates and teachers. The parents were having fun with getting to know each other together with the principal’s questions. It was a different start of the year field trip as there was an interaction between parents and principal as well as students and teachers.

I am hoping to have the best homeschooling this year 2017-2018!

Thanks Lyndee dear

I got this surprise mail last July 26 2017 and this is from my friend Lyndee. I was surprised to have it. I didn’t expect that she remember me from their Philippine vacation. I am so thankful to her, her son and her husband for remembering and for surprising me with these yummy Philippine goodies. More blessings to my dear friend Lyndee and her family!

Happy Birthday to my dearest daughter

This is a cake that’s free of cow’s milk, eggs, and peanuts. Even if the birthday girl is not allergy to any of the food but I choose to cook something like that so my eldest can also eat the birthday cake. July 30th is the 6th birthday of my daughter and she’s happy with everything she receives. I am so glad I have my daughter and I am happy she chose me as her mother.

Many more birthdays to come and best health with God’s guidance and protection.

I am thankful to God to have her because she is a good kid and she’s so smart as well. I love her to the moon and back.

Balikbayan box still in route

My box is still in route to Cebu City. I hope it will reach there by the first week of August. And the only I can remember inside the box was the two big Toblerone chocolates. The rest, I cannot recall what is inside. Hope it will arrive soonest!

Got the courage to do things esp learning how to drive (family first)

Looking at my eldest kid, I can remember those years where we will be riding a cab in going to doctor’s appointments because I didn’t know how to drive. Whenever he asked me, ‘Mama, where are my friends? Mama, can I go to the park? Mama, can I play in that playground? Etc.!” I feel hurt coz I cannot do anything. And riding a cab always were expensive.

The first time we visited the park was when he was 5 years old and he was so amazed with all the people and families playing together. I was pregnant with my 2nd baby during that time. I just used an e-scooter for me to bring him to the nearby park. When we reached there, he was bothering a father and son who were playing football. I told him not to bother them coz the father was teaching his kid. Maybe he envied that the father taught the kid in playing football.

And so, I tried my best to learn how to drive so that I can bring him to places together with his baby sister anytime I want to or anytime they will ask me.

I just love family bonding every once in a while, a family bonding away from the house and away from any gadgets, TV, or computers. It’s fun to have a family outing even just within the city parks or even just driving around the streets. When they will grow big and can choose on their own lives, they will not be having enough time to be with me. And so, I want to have a family bonding with them while they are still kids.

Decisions

It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.
– Tony Robins

And this is right! I just love the positive words from this guy. I’ve been reading about his positive quotes for several years now and I need to read more to have a positive outlook in life. No one can be positive for me except myself. Life is good with people who have positive mindsets. I want to be positive always even if others are not.

Global Long Distance Card Tracfone

I just love Tracfone coz I can save money. It is okay for me to limit my phone calls, text and data for as long as I can save and I don’t have monthly cellular fees. The connection also is clear since tracfones are using Verizon system. I am not a heavy cellular user for calls, text, and I also don’t use too much data when I am out of the house, so that’s why I am comfy in using tracfone for several years now.

Recently, I bought a $10 Global tracfone card and it says that I can have 9.7 cents per minute in calling long distance to the Philippines. I will test this one if it’s really 9.7cents and if the line is crystal clear compared to rebtel and onesuite. Another thing that I want to test is that if it will deduct the regular minutes in my tracfone service.

I’ll know everything once I will test this global tracfone card pretty soon. And I will be posting about this thing again!
