Just like that, the party was over. The concept for the party was in my head for months, even tiny details such as leveling mounts and DIY stuff, but I only actively prepared in less than two months. I’m so glad everything fell into place. The kids had so much fun, I think, and the adults appreciated the entertainer. I’m excited to see the pictures. And I must blog about the party soon, too.
On Monday, we were THIS CLOSE to running over a boy, age between 6 and 8. Ane and I were happily chatting in the front when the boy suddenly crossed the street. I’m so glad that despite talking to me, Ane’s reflex was still good and he was able to break right away. We didn’t drive away immediately, we waited for things to clear out BUT we soon realized that the car beside us driving the opposite direction hit the kid :( I saw him with his legs under the front tire. I was hysterical and Ane was trying to calm me down. How can I calm down when there’s a child hurt before my eyes? The driver of the car was a middle-aged woman. She was crying and pleading for help.
We had to drive on because we were causing build-up, besides we had both girls with us in the car. We whispered a prayer for the kid and the driver. Nobody wants an accident. And it’s just sad that we were there to witness it.
Drive safely you all!
Less than two weeks ago, we attended Joaqui’s Rockstar 7th Birthday party. It was what he wanted and his mom obliged. The birthday boy, even in his age, already loves music. I would have given him this fender deluxe gig bag at guitar center but he’s more interested in drums right now. He even had lessons before his party and and he performed with his drum set at his party. He is truly a rock star!
K enjoyed the party!
Well…she doesn’t look too happy in this pic but minutes after I took this shot, she was dancing and jumping on the stage with the rest of the kids. She had a blast, I tell you. Only, she needed me to dance with her too, LOL! A mom does anything for her kids, eh?
Rejoice, for He has risen!
I hope you all had a meaningful Holy Week. Celebrate big time today. God bless us all.
We’ve always stayed home during Holy Week. While some have gone to the beach or even abroad, we grew up (Ane and I) spending the Holy Week just at home, so that’s we did. We can always go on a vacation later (and go Ski Shop hopping for a wardrobe in a European ski resort. Hah, dream on!) when time and budget allows, but Holy Week is always time for prayer and time for family rather than for recreation for us…unless it’s spent in Vatican, I guess, which means more prayers, right?
Anyway, just saying. I was offline most of the week (I had to work some) and got to spend quality time with my family. This Saturday-morning capture is priceless and something I will cherish:
Ate and Sam left Wednesday last week. The last few days were loaded with activities and it didn’t help that we had to bring Ate to the ER one night for gastric pains (deserves another post). And we’re just about getting back on our old routine. And as always, it is hard for me to do that. It was only last night that I started working again (after about two weeks of hiatus). So I’m taking it easy and one step at a time. Sorting out our laundry can wait, harhar. I’d even browse everythingyoga.com for yoga pants first if I’m not on a self-imposed internet limit this Holy Week ;p Anyway, I guess it will all become normal again next week. I have lots of stories to blog about too. TTYL!
