Productive Summer

In a little over a month, summer vacation will be over and a new school year will start in mid-June. Our children are making the most out of their school break. It has been a productive couple of weeks for them and we’re really proud of what they have accomplished so far.

Our youngest was part of the service team of the recent Youth Camp in our parish. He has also been accepted to the SPES (Special Program for Employment of Students) Program of the government. He has been assigned a summer job at our barangay. Our eldest has applied as a student assistant at his school and we’re still waiting for an update on that. He has also been making some advance readings on the subjects that he’ll be taking this semester. He’s in his senior year in college and he knows that this will be a particularly hard year for him especially since they will be making a lot of projects and programs (he’s taking up Information Technology).

And since they don’t get to spend a lot of time online when they have classes, they have also been spending time surfing the web or just catching up with their friends and classmates on Facebook. Our youngest has even been looking for a musicians friend store locator online because he’s planning on setting aside a portion of his earnings from his summer job to buy a guitar.

Anyway, we hope that they will manage to stay productive and enjoy the rest of their summer vacation and be ready when school starts again.

Summer Plans

Summer vacation has officially started for the kids and they’re looking forward to the many activities that they can engage in this summer.  We don’t have any definite plans yet as to how they will spend their summer vacation but we’re asking them if they want to enroll in any of the summer courses that their schools are offering. But since their vacation only started today, we’re not pressuring them to decide right away. Also, our eldest will be busy applying for college so it is more likely that he wouldn’t be enrolling in any summer classes.

By the way, it’s another eventful week for our family because our youngest received an award at school and we attended their Recognition Day yesterday. It is also our eldest son’s high school graduation tomorrow and we’re all very excited about it. We’re also visiting their grandparents this weekend to celebrate their academic achievements.

Have a happy weekend !
