Today was Little Zoie’s first day in school.
Since I can’t personally send and fetch her in school, I asked my father to do it for me. It will be a new routine for all of us since I can’t leave my one-month old baby, we don’t have a yaya, and the big sister understands. On her first day, according to the Kindergarten 2 student, they only introduced their selves and play games about the under the water world. She was so eager to show me her first star for the school year 2013 to 2014.
Their curriculum is composed of 6 subjects: Math, Reading, Language, Science, Filipino, and PE (with Arts and Crafts). I’m crossing my fingers that Little Zoie will not have a hard time with the Filipino subject, since birth the only language she’s familiar is English. But we started teaching her Filipino words last year. ^_^
I hope that their class will have a music related subject. Only simple music subject and not the hard ones that needed apogee duet equipment. Music is one of Little Zoie’s interests. Me and hubby are planning to get her Piano lessons next summer. Well, that’s yet to happen. Seriously, I wanted a music subject to be included in their curriculum as early as now.
Anyway, their regular school time is 8am to 11:30am but for today, their first day of class lasted only until 10am. I guess tomorrow will be the start of their regular school time. Still wondering if we can keep waking up early for school. ^_^ So, I guess, good luck to us.

Last Friday was the first time we finally went out to the mall as a family. Since baby Matti was born Little Zoie and her dad are the ones who always have fun going out. I am exclusively breastfeeding and I’m currently not using pump to store my breast milk, so going places seems impossible to do with the baby.
But that day was different, we went to SM Muntinlupa for a little family time and picking up some grocery stuff. I said different because as far as I know, SM Muntinlupa, is the only one that has breastfeeding station near our area as far as I know. So, I chose to buy our grocery there and besides, I need to stop by at Little Zoie’s school which is just across the shopping center.
As we are going around the mall, we accidentally bumped to hubby’s sister who is, along with her friend, planning to treat her friend’s niece with food and fun. Good thing the little girl was Zoie’s age, they got along just fine.
While me and hubby, with baby Matti, are picking up groceries, our Little Zoie, with her aunt, is having fun at SM Muntinlupa’s new playground with cute Meg, the niece.

It has been a while since Little Zoie had some activity at home since I just gave birth to his baby brother almost two weeks ago.
I have been busy recovering from child birth and busy with the new routine here at home, not to mention the sleepless nights most of the time. ^_^ Anyway, since I know that the big ate is getting bored at home with nothing to do this summer vacation, when she asked if we could do one of her art projects given by one of her ninangs, I agreed but didn’t promised when we can be able to do it.
This afternoon, since I felt I have more energy and had fully recharged, I made her open the box of the art project she wanted to do.
This was a Christmas present given by her Ninang Pam but as you can see, we just opened the box today. This is now her first art activity since the start of their summer vacation. So let’s see how she did this…
I have her the job of painting the little plaster princesses. I was the one who mixed the plaster powder with some water and let it dry. After drying them all up, the ate was excited to paint them all.
The finished product of her little art project…
