When you’re lost on the hi-way, you’ve got to turn around and find the right way

It was the birthday of the daughter of my friend yesterday, and she asked me that if possible I can get one of our friends from the other city before the party and then send her back home after the party. It was just fine for me coz I love driving on the interstate. I woke up around 5:30am, prepared myself and then drove to the highway. I told myself that I will just text my friend that I am near her place when I am almost near so that she can still sleep a little coz she’s pregnant and I didn’t want her to get tired of waking up early.

I knew I set up my GPS before driving the hi-way

While driving and I was almost 9 minutes (maybe) near the exit road, my TOMTOM GPS stocked at 9 minutes, and there was no signal. But I still continued my driving hoping that my GPS will mention that I need to exit in a particular place. It won’t give me a signal, but I still continued to drive until I passed STEM Beach, Colorado, then drove to a place where I saw a windmill on the left area of the road, but I still continued to drive. Until I said to myself that I need to stop and check on my GPS when I can find an exit after turning around coz I remembered that the road I was passing was the one I drove on the way to Sand Dunes Colorado. So, I exited on a particular place, turn to the left side and stopped on the road to prepare myself going back to the northern part. When I reset my GPS, it gave me at least more than 30minutes away from my friend’s place. So I have to hurry, but I had to check on my GPS to make sure it will give me the right road so that I won’t get lost again. Until I was able to reach her place.

After I turned facing the northern part

Stopped at the side of the road to check my GPS again

On our way back I shared with her my experience. It was confusing, but I think it was for my safety and our safety in going back to Colorado Springs.

We reached my place safely at the right time coz, I have to cook some cupcakes to be brought to the party so that my kids can eat a cupcake free of eggs, peanuts, and cow’s milk.

I told myself, maybe it was just for safety that I was lost. Maybe it was not safe for me to exit on a particular place at that early time of the day. So I needed to drive past the certain place and turn around when I was safe to drive in that place. Thank God for the experience. I just love traveling sometimes. It’s refreshing to be able to see beautiful places and beautiful creations of God.

Never give up on your dreams

No one is u and that is ur power. We may be a little broken but the last time I checked, broken crayons still color the same! Stop hating yourself for everything you aren’t. Start loving yourself for everything that you are. And anyone who tries to bring you down is already below you. So no matter how u feel, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up. – The Law of attraction FB Page-

I just love LOA and I love this quote today coz this is for me. Don’t give up on ur dreams. Thanks to my friend for this photo. This is during our travel to Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado.

Driving in the interstate be like

There are times I’d love to drive on the interstate highway. I don’t mind if I will drive for few minutes to hours. You know I am a home buddy, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t love to go out. I’d love going out and just driving around especially with the whole family coz I want to bring my kids out.

And in this video, I cannot remember why I drive on the interstate. Maybe it’s a field trip for the school of my kids. The date stated that it’s September of last year. Oh well, I am just sharing this video and saving it in my channel. Hope you are having fun watching.

Driving on the interstate highway, you’ve got to be brave coz u will be driving with vans and other huge trucks plus other aggressive drivers. Also, you’ve got to pray for the safety of your travel, and for the safety of all motorists.

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!

Cool weather in Colorado Springs today

Colorado Springs today is having cool weather and it feels good. It was so hot the past days especially for the first day of summer. Whenever I will be out, I easily get drained with the hot weather, although, I love hot weather as it is not a whole year round event. Anyway, with this temperature today, I need a jacket whenever I will be out.

USAF Thunderbird Air Show

It was a fun day last May 24 during the USAFA graduation as there were around 6 Thunderbirds flying for about 30 minutes here in Colorado. There were lots of people gathered from a far to witness the air show. According to my friend this was one of the most awaited events here in Colorado Springs. It was fun seeing all of the exhibitions of the pilots. They were great.

Next year, we will try to witness this USAF Thunderbird air show again.

Gardens of the Gods 2017

Since the weather was a bit okay last Saturday, May 20th, my kids and I were able to visit Gardens of the Gods. This is one of our favorite places to visit. We will just be driving around the place and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. We also love this place because it offers fresh and a little bond with nature. It’s nice to bring my kids out every once in a while. They deserve to be out since they are kids and they need to discover places outside our home.
