Let's play ball

One of the privileges a homeschooler can have is the opportunity of having a more flexible schedule compared to a child enrolled in regular school.  Children can learn more when they can actually experience the things taught in the classroom.

Love Life and Sex Education

Sorry for the late greeting, I could have posted this on time but because of internet connection problems, I failed to do so. I'd never thought it will be so hard when you're used with an internet access in the house then suddenly its out.  February is said to be the love month and we needed to prepare for a post heart's day celebration. I usually go online to research for party ideas. I am glad that God had guided me and given me knowledge on what to do with the task I was assigned with. I successfully come up with ideas even without an online help.  Click this link to have a glimpse of the event.

Have you ever thought of when is the right time to teach your children about love, courtship and marriage?

Toddlers' craft activities (3)

Greeting cards are perfect gifts in special occasions because of its message that touches the recipient's heart.  The idea of being it handmade adds up to its value. Heart's month is just around and you might be thinking of something to give to those dear to your heart.

I will be sharing you the crafts that my children and I have worked on during our homeschool sessions.

SJ First Birthday Celebration

I don't have any plans of throwing out a party for SJ's first birthday.  Originally, I planned to cook a simple dinner for the family and buy a cake at red ribbon and took a souvenir photo that I can share to my son when he grows up.  It is stressful to arrange a party - one major reason why I don't want to do it and second we don't have a house helper who can offer help mostly on taking care of the children.   If we are going to celebrate the party in a restaurant, it would be expensive and we had no budget to cover the expenses.

It so happen that our son's birthday falls on Sunday (February 10, 2012) so we are expecting lot of people will come having a husband who is a pastor and the fact that our house is one door away from the church.  Pakner4lyf decided to invite all the church members and friends for a simple celebration not only because it is our son's birthday nor it was the Chinese New Year but there are other church members who are also celebrating their birthdays this month - Kevin, Lizzele and Zymon.

Only moms can fully understand...

I believe that all people whether young or old, male or female, regardless of status in life at some point sacrifices for a better purpose.

I used to think if I will be a good mom to my children.  From the time I have conceived from my first son my fears started if I can nurture and provide the need of our coming child.  Since then I started praying that I may be able to raise godly children in accordance with the biblical principles. This way I know I can never get wrong.

My sacrifices being a mother started when I have conceived for our first born son.
