I haven’t blogged for a long time and I miss it. I have so many stories to tell but I just can’t find time to write (ok I admit, most of the time I’m just too lazy to write). Anyway, I’m doing ok, most of the tasks that I listed that should be accomplished in 6 months were accomplished (except for losing weight, which has been part of my list to be accomplished for 5 years already lol!) To wrap it all up, we had a great summer. We weren’t able to go to Boracay as initially planned due to budget constraints but the kids were able to swim in 3 different locations and occasions which made them really happy. We went to Pico de Loro in April with my cousins as part of our annual summer outing, then my college friends and our families went to Canyon Cove to celebrate our 20 years of friendship, and lastly, we had a staycation at Trader’s Hotel in Pasay as our last hurrah before school starts. Lance and Hannah also had their respective summer classes, Lance had Foldabots while Hannah learned how to swim and she’s a trooper. In like 3 days she can float already, and she even got 3 medals on their last day. She just needs to enhance her skills especially in breathing and in doing the proper strokes. I plan to enroll her again soon, if she’s up for it. For Lance, he still loves basketball and we will start his Milo best in July. I got surprised also that he can float already and maybe next time I’ll enroll him in swimming class.
May was a good month for us. That was when we went with our college friends to Canyon Cove and our staycation in Traders. It was also special because that was when we had our batch grand reunion. The sleepless nights and weekly meeting paid off when our batch mates attended and they told me that they had a great time. We also had an outreach program and it was very heartwarming and fulfilling. 🙂 I’m glad that the batch spent time and resources to give back what we have to others who needed help.
Come June, the kids started with school already and it is now an exciting year for Hannah since it’s her first time to be in big school. I’m really happy and excited for her and so far she said she’s having a great time. She was even saying na her lessons are easy haha! Hopefully she’ll still say the same until March 😀 For Lance, it’s a challenging year for him as grade 3 because they have lots of activities for this year. Also, we are telling him that he should do and learn things on his own already so he can apply it now in grade 3. He’s also having a hard time in Filipino as early as now and we’re hoping na he won’t have a hard time eventually.
As for Paul and I, we celebrated our 9th year wedding anniversary last June 18, with a dinner. It was a simple dinner but there’s nothing more I can ask for. We have 9 wonderful years together and that’s more than enough for me. (But as early as now, I’m telling him to save so on our 10th year next year, we can go back to where we had our honeymoon :D) His challenge naman to me, ok I challenge myself na din, na I should lose weight so I’ll be able to wear nice swimsuits when the time comes hehe!) I guess for now this is all I can say as an update on what’s going on with me. Hopefully it won’t be too long until I get to update this blog again. 🙂
