Hi everyone! I know it’s been a looong time since I last posted, I apologize. Life just happened and I wasn’t able to do any sharing on this blog.
But worry no more, because I am back and I now have my own self-hosted blog. I finally did it!
I hope to meet and continue sharing stories with you over at our new home!
Curious about homeschooling? Homeschooler seeking to get in touch with other homeschoolers?
Then I’m happy to share that Manila Workshops, together with The Learning Basket and Unilab supported by the Homeschool Association of the Philippine Islands (HAPI) are proud to present the Homeschooling Conference of 2014, entitled Educating for Life: Homeschooling with Passion, Purpose and Confidence. It will be held on Sept 6, Saturday at the Bayanihan Arts and Events Center in Pioneer Street Kapitolyo in Pasig City from 8AM for registration (program starts at 10) to 5:30PM.
Attend and learn why more and more families are choosing to homeschool and see if it’s something that your family may benefit from as well.
Head on to www.mommyjourney.com for a few details regarding the speakers in this event.

See you there!
Numerous research have shown the negative effect of too much screen time for kids. I try, as much as I can, to limit my kids TV time to an hour a day, and DVD time is reserved for weekends.
I prefer more time spent on independent play using open ended toys like blocks and legos. Majority of our time is spent having read-aloud sessions, usually after lunch and before bedtime.
Below are some of the books we’ll be devouring this school year 2014-2015. Some books we’ve read already but we haven’t done a project for, so I will try to update this soon with links on our books rows, projects and activities.
