Spring Fishing at the Pond!

Oh the weather outside is perfect; perfect to go fishing. So, Kyle got up and prepped himself to go fishing. Little later, he came back home with two fish in the bucket! He is into fishing now after his Dad took him to several fishing trips at the lake; but, this is much better just walked and fished right into your yard. Anyhow, Kyle always come up with his fashion of what to wear. Take a look of this chosen outfit...

Definitely, he is into fishing! He spent most of the day being out in the pond...

Surprise Gift!

       Our son, who is 10 years old now, always  wanted a pet... He had fish and turtle before but it didn't suit him. He wanted a dog, but it will be impossible because he has hair allergy reaction on it. One day, he decided to have a dog, a short- haired  dog because it didn't seem to bother him. Since we moved to our place, he has been wanting to have one... We wanted him to have one but it has to be a surprised one... So, after a long three weeks wait it finally came true. 
     We were out in the yard prepping for  our garden when two dogs excitedly greeted us... Our friend Mike was behind carrying a tiny puppy... Kyle asked him, "Why do you have three dogs?" Mike replied, "Well, I heard that you have been doing so good at school and you want to have your own dog." So, this puppy's parents are here to give you their puppy!" Kyle still didn't get it, he asked Mike back, "What do you mean?" Mike answered, " This is your puppy now!" He handed the puppy to Kyle. Kyle was in disbelief and so surprised that he didn't know how to react. He was in awe and totally elated! He said... " Mommy, I have a puppy now." He held the puppy with his tender care with his big smile and about to cry.

Mommy's Blooper

First Day of school is my most anticipated day as a mother. Unfortunately, I can't do it this time, so I asked my husband to do me a favor. But today, it didn't turn out right. The only thing I asked from my husband is to take Kyle's picture during drop-off time. Unfortunately, Kyle convinced his father of not doing it because it embarrasses him. I was so disappointed when I found out that no picture had been made. So, I decided to wait on him at the bus stop and take his picture. I waited for almost 40 minutes and these are some pictures that I took out of my boredom
weed flower (love the color)

Then, I saw the bus approaching. I was so excited to see my 4th grader! Then, he saw me with a camera, he started screaming, "Oh no! No picture, Mommy!"  I begged him to be still so that I can take picture, but he was so defiant.  I told him that I waited for 40 minutes just to see him but it didn't work. Until, I pulled out
the last card and I said,
" Kyle, I need to do this because this is one of my precious moments to look at when I get old :)." Finally, he said, "OKAY!" Now, he is calmer. So, I continued, "It will be nicer if you show me where Daddy dropped you off so that I can take a picture." He instantly replied with his wide eyes of disbelief, "MOMMY, are you serious?" After looking at me pitifully, he agreed. Basically, we redo the scenario this morning, pretending I'm dropping him off.  I'm so proud of him for doing it all over again for his mommy. Definitely, he deserved a good treat! 

So proud of him!!! 

First Day at School

Today is Kyle's first day at school as 4th grader. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to drop him off. So, I asked my husband to do me a favor of taking his picture after being drop-off, but Kyle refused to have his picture taken because he is big now. It crushed my heart. My husband added that Kyle said, "It just embarrasses me." I certainly couldn't believe it. So today right after work, I will make sure to get home on time so that I can wait on him right at  the bus stop. Today is his first time to ride a school bus too. So, I definitely need to take his picture because it is significantly important for my scrap book :)

Happy Anniversary!


    Today, we celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary; it doesn't seem that long. The man I married hasn't changed, and he remains sweet, kind, and thoughtful. Sometimes the meanness in me resurfaces, he stays  calm, and subtle. I might drop the dishes intentionally because the dishes are not done; he would just say, "I can do that." Or, I might fussed because the clothes were not folded right, he would just say, "I'm sorry, I tried." Perhaps, I was just looking for any reason in order for him to get mad. I surely brag my sweetest husband; even though, I don't oftentimes cook hot American meals for him. He is perfectly fine if I go to Publix and just get a combo-meal.  But selfishly, I cook Filipino food more often just exclusively for me. It is so unfair, but he doesn't care at all. I think, he had rather eat that way than eat the unappetizing meal. Obviously, I'm not a very good cook and Kyle can attest to that.  Wow, I sound like I domesticated my husband big time.  Not only  is he the sweetest husband, but he is a wonderful father to his kids. He always brags about his three boys, and his grand-baby Gaige. Happy Anniversary, asawa ko!

Cub Scout Graduation

            It has been three years since Kyle began his journey as a cub scout. Last Monday, he has his graduation as a Bear cub to Webelos, a closer rank of becoming a boy scout! Woohoo! Cub Scouting is a great opportunity to help develop his interests and skills, strengthens family and more. He loves it so much that I sometimes talked to him of quitting. But, Kyle's dedication and commitment to his pack is solid! Apparently, he is having a great time learning and venturing the fun task assigned to him. We don't have any reason to make him quit, but just our laziness to chaperon him :( 

            He is looking forward to his another journey as Webelos! 
For the boys! 

Kyle is wearing his complete baseball uniform underneath his class A uniform shirt because he has a game right after the ceremony.
