I had a good chat with Nissa  last night and she told me about Nate’s progress in school. Nate loves his online classes but Nissa is having a hard time working  from home and at the same time supervising Nate in his schooling. “That’s is why I never dreamed of being a school teacher”, I told Nissa even if Dad persuaded mo to take up Education when I was in college.

They have this subject where they learned to make a simple book mostly drawings of the things they want to put on paper. Nate got so absorbed in it that he made several instead of just one to submit in school.

Nissa actually took a video on how it’s done, unfortunately I could not seem to follow it. I must admit I am not good in following instructions like that. You have to fold the paper so many times and  cut it in the middle then fold it again so it would create pages. Here are the examples Nissa sent me on what Nate did this week.

Children could really be so creative. I wanted to see the other figures that he made especially the flowers and cars. Oh, they still wear uniform shirts even at home with their school logo. Nissa told me they have different colors of shirts every day.

Nissa sent me this photo yesterday. It’s Nate’s latest achievements in Grade 1. By August 24 if schools push through, he’ll be in Grade 2.

And she accompanied it with these inspiring words.

Nate, ever since you started schooling, you’ve never failed to make us proud of your scholastic achievements. You growing up to be a sweet, loving, brave and generous kid means everything. Your medals and awards are just icing on the cake. We hope you know how very happy you make us. We love you, dear Nate. Congratulations on a job well done!

1st grade done, next.

Nate was left home when  Nissa and Obet came to visit us  yesterday but Nissa sent these pictures of him taken today.

Chubby, chubby, tabachingching!

Look at his photos. I just laughed seeing him and I miss him all the more.

Look at how he poses in front of the camera with matching shades…haha!

Enjoying the water.

It still seems like summer here. The sun is in its full glory.

Ang mag-ina….bow!

Two front teeth still missing? They all look happy.

In all the more than four months that I haven’t seen him, he has definitely grown.

Haha, I smiled when I saw this. Nate’s simple gift to Nissa on Valentine’s Day. Look at the crude style those paper hearts were made….beautiful.  It’s a note (again) saying she is an excellent cook and a rose. Sweet. Love it. This is not the first time he wrote to  Nissa. When we were at the hospital a few months ago, he also wrote the same thing that Nissa is #1 when it comes to cooking.

See you in a while Nate.

Nissa calls this “pampagood vibes”, that feeling of being positive and grateful for all the graces that comes Nate’s way.

He is a grader now (Grade one)in the same school where he spent his kindergarten. His hard works and efforts are rewarded.

Great job Nate. Nonna is proud of you 🙂

Nissa says, “parang bida sa sinaunang pelikula (a lead actor in an old film). I laughed but I love his smile. A typical Nate smile, bigay na bigay.

And here’s the colored version of this pic.

Nissa says, “finally, we have a graduate, sixteen more years to go”. 

Sixteen years if of course a long time when you wait for it, but when you just let it pass and wouldn’t mind the passing days, in a blink, you’re done.

There were lots of photos in Nissa’s camera  about the event but she is posting them in increments. These are those photos that stand out though. Since some of them are in high-res, I opted to post them here.

Nate on 3-23-19

It is always a joy to see you with those big smiles Nate. Ang sipag at tiyaga mag-aral nagbubunga talaga. Nonna is so proud of you.

One of the amenities that Tree Top Adventure at Camp John Hay in Baguio offers is the Canopy Ride. Nate is a brave soul. He was not afraid to try everything. I had fun watching the video Nissa took when they were up in the air and Nate advising everyone to be careful or they might fall.  Too bad, I cannot upload it here. The Canopy Ride is a travel- through- trees 100 feet above the ground using a network of five motorized cables. You can see nature from a different perspective. It must be nice to feel the relaxing cool breeze of Baguio and the scent of pines.

Ready for the ride Nate?

Weren’t you afraid of the height?

Haha!

Next time, you might be on a zip line.

 

Nature at its best

I copied some pictures of Nate when they were in Baguio over the weekend.  Too bad we didn’t see each other at the parking lot of Shell Select last Sunday. I met Nissa though, she came for a hug and a kiss.

Nate’s signature pose.

“Mommy, it’s cold outside”. I love this one, a serene shot of our big boy.

Happy together 🙂

That somehow naughty smile…..

What a lovely scenery.

Nissa has thousands of photos of Nate in her camera phone – different places, so many poses.

Can’t help but smile a little at these photos of Nate as Peter Pan for English Week. Peter Pan…the boy who refused to grow up.

Nissa made the hat. That’s real feather on his hat. She bought the costume. You make a “pogi” Peter Pan Nate 🙂
