The First Day Of School Was Fine ( Momimhar posted on June 8th, 2012 )

The first day of school went very well.  My niece and nephews did not have problems with their class schedules or anything.  My sister is, however, just enrolled this week.  She is in third year college now.  How fast time flies.  Her school required them to attend a training at Red Cross Philippines.  The training in Red Cross was to give them knowledge on how to care for a patient in emergency.  This school year my sister and her class will be having duties in the operating room.  The nursing books are getting more expensive now.  My husband and I are doing our best to provide for my sister’s school needs.

On the other hand, my niece and nephews were excited about school.  My niece, who is in 2nd year high school, thought she and her classmates are included in those students who will be required to wear a new uniform in different color.  The high school administration in our town back home, in compliance to the public school region’s new policy on uniforms, is implementing a change of school uniform for high school students effective this school year to the incoming freshmen.  So sophomores and juniors will retain wearing the old uniform until next school year.

My nephew who is in the 4th Grade now is happy that he got new pair of shoes.  My other nephew who is enrolled in a Summer Day Care is very glad that we bought a trolly bag for him.  At first, he was hesitant entering his class because he thought the teacher is unfriendly.  But with proper encouragement from the grandparents and his mom and dad, he goes to class now.

As usual, everybody got new school supplies and some new clothing for school.  What we are still needing right now are raincoats and boots because June is the beginning of rainy season in the Philippines.  These will help protect the kids from getting sick.

Summer Vacations in Orlando Are Great For Families ( Momimhar posted on June 8th, 2012 )

By Alexandra Jacobs

For a summer vacation, nothing beats Orlando and Walt Disney World for families. Summer is a great time to visit Orlando, with warm, sunny weather. It is catered to families, and offers a variety of activities that parents and kids alike can enjoy. Wait until later in the summer to get Hamptons Rentals, or travelling to the Cape, and spend the beginning of your summer in Orlando.

Disney World

One of the reasons families from around the world flock to Orlando is to visit Walt Disney World Resort. Walt Disney World consists of four different theme parks – Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom Park, and Hollywood Studios. The resort also offers two water parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.

offers shows, interactive experiences, and a chance to experience cultures from around the world right in Orlando. For a fantasy experience in one of the seven lands of enchantment, families can have the time of their lives at Magic Kingdom. Animal Kingdom Park gives families the opportunity to watch and interact with real, live animals, in addition to experiencing live
shows and unique attractions. Meanwhile, Hollywood Studios offers all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood in a family-friendly setting. For the maximum amount of fun and enjoyment, families should allow at least one full day to experience each of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks.

Walt Disney World Resort has a variety of accommodations to choose from right on the resort grounds. The resort offers a number of great deals on hotels throughout the year. Families should check the Disney World website periodically for the most up-to-date prices. Just outside of Disney World are hundreds of other hotels, so it’s easy to find somewhere else to stay
if staying inside the resort isn’t the preferred option. Five nights and four days is about the minimum amount of time needed to fully enjoy Disney World.


While it may be its most visited attraction, there’s more to Orlando than just Disney World. Families planning on spending a week in Orlando may consider spending five of their nights at the resort, and the remaining two discovering all there is to see and do in and around Orlando. If the adults aren’t tired of theme parks yet, Orlando has LEGOLAND Florida, Universal Orlando, and Sea World Orlando.

For more adult activities, Orlando has plenty of dining and nightlife. The city offers a variety of cuisine from all over the globe, perfect for all budgets and palates. Parents looking for a night out without the kids may want to consider Victoria & Albert’s or Chatham’s Place for a romantic evening in Orlando. For a dinner that the kids will love, families should try Yellow Dog Cafe, Padrino’s Cuban Bistro, Sweet Tomatoes, and TooJay’s Deli, all of which are great for adults and kids.
