So How's School?

Hello there! Chasey boy, our grade 1 son,  is now officially on sembreak. So far, it's such an interesting, yet challenging, school year for all of us. You ought to know there are a lot of new factors in play during this time, first off we are a new student, it's our first taste of traditional school, plus it's an all boys school. More so, I'm back to corporate employment, so I'm not really geared to take on the taxing tutoring roles as before. Oh well. Glad we survived the First Trimester. His grades are relatively a-okay! :-D Except for Filipino. Hah. We're actually working hard for him to catch up, or else he needs to take Saturday developmental classes, which is optional but recommended. The interesting thing though, he's doing mighty well in Sibika. So it's not really a non-Filipino proficient issue, but perhaps Sibika comes out more interesting as an informative subject vs. technical. Anyhow,  it was not all peaches and cream, I actually had major rant post, that I didn't get around posting, I'm glad I didn't because we survived it, a bit wiser now, and back on track.  Chase had some issues at the early onset of his class. So yes, bully vs. bullied part. So sad. It was totally new for us. We were summoned by the school's Prefect. We took a stand, since I know that it was out of character. Chase was saddened and uber bothered, so was I. It was such a catalyst, that if not for my hubby's intervention, I almost pulled him out of the class.  Oh well, boys will be boys!  But in the end, we decided to do a more objective stand. It helps to keep in touch with other co-parents too.  Plus we decided to be actively part of the PTA of the School. And thankfully, our lives are changed forever. ;-D

August 2012, for the Lingo ng Wika Culminating Activity, he was asked to wear  a local costume, instead of the usual Barong Tagalog, the more practical and economical option was to go for Katipunero Costume. Hah. ;-D Bought the pants, and other effects at Pasig Market. 
To reinforce it, and as a way for him to make more friends, we made him take Karate Do. He's just successfully completed his White to Yellow Belt Promotional Exam. ;-D Off to the next colors. 
Our little Karate Kid., at AAK Megamall. Don't ask me, but hubby opted for Karate Do vs. Taekwondo (Imagine my frustration with my crazy affection to almost everything Korean *LoL). 
Chase was also getting some stints and opportunities to showcase his eloquence. 
For the United Nations Culminating Day Costume, he went on to be Spain's Little Bullfighter. ;-D Bought at SM Department Store. 
So far, so good. 2 of 3 Terms to go. Cheers! ;-D

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
