School Summer

Hello March, Hello Summer!

Raise your hands with me if you also can’t believe it’s already March!

Wasn’t it just yesterday when Yuri was starting kindergarten? I still vividly recall how frazzled I was during the first day (I ironed everything…down to Yuri’s socks — now I know better!), how I looked forward to the orientation and the first PTA meetings, how we made friends in class… Of course, it wasn’t that long ago, only 9 months ago, but you know what I mean!

In fact, just earlier this morning, I went to the school’s PTA General Assembly, the second for this year (the first one took place in July). As usual, I got out of the general assembly feeling more stressed than usual (loooong story), but it’s okay. I’m just rejoicing because Yuri’s final exams are finally over!

Yes, they had their final exams last week. Ang aga, ‘no? I am not complaining at all! It’s been terribly busy for the past two weeks, with all the work + real estate commitments and studying with Yuri for his finals. I’m so glad it’s over. Tomorrow, they’re going to start rehearsing na for their Moving Up ceremony. We’re still going to school but at least, no more stress na (at least for this aspect).

While I love taking Yuri to school, I’m looking forward to summer break when I don’t have to dress up and get out of the house. I can almost taaaste it. On the other hand, I want Yuri’s summer break to be productive, and we’re already starting to plan for it. Here are some of our plans:

1. Swim School

I’m waiting for Red Cross Davao to make their announcement regarding this year’s summer swimming lesson schedule. We missed last year’s so now I’ll make sure to enrol Yuri in their program as early as possible.

2. Jollibee Mini Managers Camp or McDonald’s Kiddie Crew

Isa lang, not both! I’ve heard good things about either two. I like McDo because the nearest location to our house is more convenient. However, I think Yuri prefers Jollibee because he likes the uniform better. Whichever works, honestly.

Apart from this two, I’m also thinking of enrolling Yuri to a music school. Yes, I’m still not over this ambition! However, while I want our summer break to be productive, I don’t want it to be hectic. Still, if I can find a sweet spot in between to achieve a balanced schedule, I might as well take it (with Job’s consent, of course, since he already vetoed last year LOL).

What are your plans for summer?

    I am more than excited for vacation. Haha the fact that moms are not forced to wake up that early. I mean, this time we wake up early but with a different aura because there’s no presseure! Hahah
    I’d love tot try the jollibee mini managers. We’ve tried the mcdo crew last year. 🙂

    Yesterday was the start of our vacation. Ang aga din nag-end ang school namin though we have to go back pa for Recognition Day but at least no lessons, homework and exams. I’m still convincing my son to join swimming class or Jollibee Camp din.

    Yes, I think swimming is a great summer training for kids. Necessity for me yun. My kids will take formal classes in swimming this summer, too.

    As for kiddie crew, I just responded to the nearby branch’s invitation text to it (my kids joined their kiddie crew last year) to say I was not happy with last year’s results. I wouldn’t go into detail. Okay lang for me ang mejo tamad ang crew, pero yung parang mean sa anak mo, ibang usapan yun. Pasalamat sila di ko sila inaway last year. hahaha, biglang nagrant.

    Me too! Can’t believe school year is almost over for us! 🙂 Yey to longer sleeps. 😀 I am also thinking of cool summer activities for my little one this year. Last year he joined McDoald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop. You may watch some of his experiences here: 🙂

    Yes to swim school! Today’s kids are very fortunate ang daming mga workshops and summer activities (some offer free trial classes pa right?). My nag-swimschool and kiddie crew na yung panganay ko and worth it ang gastos 🙂 Happy summer to you and your family!
