November 30 is Bonifacio Day

Today is November 30, Bonifacio Day here in the Philippines and it's a regular holiday. This means that there are no classes and no work in most of the offices here. It totally slipped my mind that today is a holiday, and we woke Keisha up for school. She got all dressed up, and went to school. She came back a few minutes later.

We have a tricycle service that fetches her to and from school, and he didn't come today. Also, there is a public school close to where we live and I noticed that it was unusually silent. I should have known, lol!

Keisha felt embarrassed that she went to school when there was no school, but I told her it was better compared to not going to school when there are in fact classes.

Active Fun @ SM North EDSA

Last Saturday, Henry and I took the kids to Active Fun in SM North EDSA. Henry had scored two gift certificates for an hour's worth of playtime, and we grabbed the chance to take them there.

Keisha had a blast with the slides, the pool filled with balls, and almost everything the playground had to offer. I took a lot of pictures of them, before Nicole decided she wanted me in the playground instead of her dad.

The day was concluded by a trip to Toy Kingdom as we saw they were having a three day sale. Keisha and Nicole bought a big box of battery operated kitchen toys which they love playing with.

I'll be uploading pics of the kids in the playground as well as Nicole's video on the slide soon.

Keisha's Birthday Party at School

Today Henry, Nicole, and I went to Keisha's school so that we could give out the food we ordered from Jollibee to her classmates. Although her birthday was on the 29th, we decided to have her party at school today, because last week was their schedule for their second quarter exams.

Because of the recent storm that hit the country, classes last Friday were suspended and the exam Keisha was supposed to take then was scheduled for today. Our supposed to be party set for today at 9AM ended up with us just giving away the food. It ended up OK, because her teacher asked both sets of the students to sing for Keisha the happy birthday song.

Keisha enjoyed the day, and I'm glad her birthday this year was very memorable.
