One Proud Partidonian



Maundy Thursday, I was cleaning upstairs and sorting-out some old stuff when I stumbled on this valedictory address.

Gabi’s Drawing 101: Sharks


Gabi became fond of sharks when he is 5. He started to draw by simply copying them from books. I started collecting his drawings only when we started homeschooling (when he is in Grade 2 at age 7).





He usually uses scratch papers that's why most of his work would end up in the trash (too bad).


But I've learned my lesson now, so Mommy is always on the lookout for his best drawings before getting rid of his used papers.

Art Time: Bleeding Crepe Paper



Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~ Pablo Picaso

I was thinking of an art activity for my homeschooler and I’m just glad I can always run to Pinterest for some ideas. 

Last Saturday, we made Bleeding Crepe Paper Art using materials available at home.

Photography by Romel



Photography has become hubby's another favorite thing. I shared before he got interested with graphics and layout.

He started using a bridge camera and by God's grace, we were able to buy our very first DSLR when we received our severance pay. I didn't hesitate when he say he wants to buy one because he has been praying for it and I can see that he really wants to take it seriously. Besides, who doesn't want a good quality photos? (wink)

Unconditional Retreat 2.0



"Men are from Mars, women are from Venus"

Men and women are wired differently. We were created based on our God-given roles as husbands and wives. No wonder there are misunderstandings along the way. As wives, we want our husbands to act the way we want them to be. We even try to change them in order to pattern to our own expectations which often resulted in frustrations.

Adiós




When i started to understand and internalized my biblical role as a wife and mother, my conviction was to be at home with my kids, parenting and teaching them while they are young.

"And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." ~ Deuteronomy 6:6-7 ESV

Origami in Action


We introduced origami to our eldest when he was about 5. Our goal at first is to divert him from playing gadgets or watching too much TV. 

Heart Origami for Mother's Day

We started using a book which i bought from a book sale. Then when our son turned 7, we finally allowed him to watch video tutorials in YouTube following a strict weekly schedule. He became very fond of it that he will spend his free time just folding papers. He also found his favorite origamist, Jeremy Shafer.
