The Garfield in our Dictionary

A month ago, I caught my son holding a dictionary and intensely reading it. It was a surprise for me because he is more inclined into ready books with pictures or anything with colorful pages.

That dictionary day was followed by another, then another.  When he’s not doing anything, he’s at a corner or inside our bedroom reading the dictionary. That’s what I thought.

Then, the “AHA” moment came when he came to me giggling and shared to me what he read: A Garfield comics strip! So, technically, he was not reading the dictionary but was reading the comics strips found in it.

How I turned my hesitant reader into a happy reader

I have a homeschooler who is a hesitant reader. He learns more by moving around and reading is not his priority. If he reads, he will stick to his favorites: fact books, almanacs, science and anything non-fictional. I asked him once why he does not read any other books  and his reply, ” What do I get from reading them? At least, fact books let me know the facts!” Good point. But I told him that there is something magical that happens when you read fiction stories.

Planning for 15 days Visayas land trip

I am back! And this time, I might be writing more as we are planning a Visayas land trip soon!

So many things have happened after my last post. I am still homeschooling my son and we are already on our 3rd year as homeschoolers. Also, I accepted a position in our organization and it has kept me very busy lately.

Hubby and I have been planning for so long to do a land trip from Mindanao to Luzon. However, with the opening of our new office in Davao City, we have to set aside that plan and concentrated on our work. Hubby took over the office while I decided to stay at home and teach. But despite that set up, it seemed that I was even busier than him because of the unending calls, messages and emails that I receive, reply and answer everyday.

Then, hubby just blurted out 2 months ago that it was time for us to relax. All work with no play is not good for the soul, so they say. So, here I am now, going over some blogs and websites and researching how we can maximize our time as we travel to Visayas – Negros in particular. We only have 15 days to go around Negros Oriental and Occidental.
