Before the school year ended, our family was faced with a dilemma. Do we go back to homeschooling for both girls or do we put them both in regular school? Or should we keep one in regular school and keep the other in homeschool? Our original plan was actually to put both girls in Danae’sContinue reading “We Can’t Afford It”

Field Trip to U.P.
It was the first week of July when I stumbled upon an article saying that one of the University of the Philippines’ most popular eateries was going to close. Apparently after around 30 years in business beside the Main Library, Beach House Canteen was being evicted because they were too close to the drainage, makingContinue reading “Field Trip to U.P.”
Still, Why Homeschool?
I still encounter people who ask why we homeschool, as if it’s a step backward or a step in the wrong direction. Well, I’ve written a few articles about the perks I’ve experienced so far. I’ve also actually written about why we homeschool, but it’s not like I can just direct people to visit myContinue reading “Still, Why Homeschool?”
Please Support Danae!
Please support Danae and some of the homeschoolers as they join Soderno’s bazaar this weekend! They will be there on Friday and Saturday only, November 23 and 24, selling all kinds of great stuff! For last year’s bazaar, the older kids sold some of their own work — paintings and paper products among other things.Continue reading “Please Support Danae!”
Perks of Homeschooling — Flexible Hours
One of the perks of homeschooling is flexible hours. When we were starting out, I asked one of my go-to homeschooling moms, Michelle, how I ought to fix our daily schedule. She gave me great advice — set a schedule and see how it works out for the next few weeks, then adjust accordingly. IContinue reading “Perks of Homeschooling — Flexible Hours”
Noelle in School
Noelle’s school, Kidvantage Learning Center, celebrated Linggo ng Wika (Language Week) two weeks ago. All the kids were asked to wear Filipino costume, and each class prepared a Filipino number to show to the parents. The day before however, I forgot about the adjusted schedule and brought Noelle to school when practice day was alreadyContinue reading “Noelle in School”
The question I asked myself last year was “To homeschool or not to homeschool?” Now that that has been answered, the question a few people ask me is “Why? Why homeschool?” Maybe I should answer that by answering the question “Why not homeschool?” first. We’ve always been open to it, but our considerations in theContinue reading “Why Homeschool?”
Another Season of Firsts
The past few months have been another season of firsts for our family. Last April 20-21, King and Danae participated in their very first Me and My Dad Camp. It was held on a mountain in Quezon, with just dads and little kids aged 6 to maybe 10. It was also King’s first time toContinue reading “Another Season of Firsts”
TO HOMESCHOOL OR NOT TO HOMESCHOOL?
My 5-year-old Danae is in Kinder. She goes to Kidvantage Learning Center, a school 10 minutes away from our house. We were always open to homeschooling, but seeing that Danae enjoyed her first tries at school so much and that she’s such a people person, we decided to enroll her in a regular school —Continue reading “TO HOMESCHOOL OR NOT TO HOMESCHOOL?”
