Last Sunday, Nissa asked what food I ‘ve prepared and suggested not to buy anymore because she was sending something for lunch. She sent a box of Mang Inasal chicken and a big tray of palabok. They went home early to attend Sunday mass and had lunch out after at TGI Fridays. There were some photos that they took. Just sharing some here.

Look at Nate, one of his favourites is Macaroni and Cheese.
He bought this gift for Nissa, an everyday journal, out of his own savings.

Look at his handwriting. He writes better in print….haha!
The happy couple.

I told Nissa to fill it with her everyday thoughts. I remember those times when she was the same age as Nate, she also kept one under a tiny lock and key. She maintained journaling until she was in college. They are still kept here along with some of her art paraphernalia.

Nate’s way of making a hot day tolerable. He made that glass of yummy smoothie using whipped cream, soy milk, Oreo cookies and marshmallow.

Look at that smile!
And a glass should be enough Nate❀

Last Saturday, April 29 was Recognition Day in Nate’s school. It was a separate event from the graduation of the higher year. According to Nissa, they no longer give separate medals to students who excel in different subjects except for the graduating students. They give medals though to outstanding students in different grades. Nate got two, Best in English and High Honors Awards. I am not surprised because Nate is bilingual, he speaks both Tagalog and English fluently. Here are some photos of the event.

That’s how he looks in his
school uniform.
Proud of this boy. He earns medals every year since kindergarten.
Proud parents of course.

Congratulations NATE. Nonna misses you❀❀πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸŽˆπŸŽˆ

Nate is now taller than I am. He is just ten years old. Nissa took shots of them while Nate was learning to add soil to the pots of hydrangea which they bought earlier.

Appreciate gardening Nate.
Do you know that the colors of flowers depend on the pH of the soil? Either it is pink when the soil is alkaline or blue when the soil is acidic.
So engrossed.

I miss you Nate😘πŸ₯°β€πŸ§‘πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰

It’s been more than a month since we saw each other, they were here when Noel and Lanette arrived from the USA. That was more than a month ago.

Yesterday we had our Christmas lunch. We forgot to take pictures except for the two shots I took during our meal prayers. Then I also took pictures of Nissa’s gifts to me.

See how serious Nate was in praying.
Nissa led the prayers. Thanksgiving for all the blessings in our lives and being together again.
The various gifts that Nissa gave me, a set of bedsheets, table runner, table cloth and some items from Marks and Spencer. I have a new umbrella too. How nice!

It was a simple celebration but we enjoyed a few laughs when Nate opened his gifts.

I am saving photos of Nate here during their first communion last Friday. He is growing so tall for his age.

He is only nine years old but he looks like a grown-up.
With his dad and mom.
He was one of the readers during the mass. CONGRATULATIONS NATEπŸ™‚ So proud of you.

Oh my!

So proud of this little guy (not so little anymore), he is now almost as tall as I am.

Nissa just forwarded a copy of Nate’s grades for their third grading period. Everything went up despite that most of the time he is unsupervised because Obet and Nissa are now reporting for work in some days of the week. My gosh, Science subject and Math are almost perfect at 99 % each. They are still online every day. I think he is more knowledgeable about his tab than I am about mine 😘

What a smart little guy. So proud being a Nonna.

They came here yesterday to celebrate New Year with us.

After lunch, Nate said, “can we go out at the garden Nonna?”

I asked him why and he added, “I want to pick kalamansi”. That’s Philippine lime.

I told him they are still so small so I showed our two jackfruits.

Can we play instead?” . Then he began making faces and his signature sign which is thumbs up. He has grown so tall and a little more chubby since the last time they stayed here March last year. I took some photos of course..

It is always a thrill having Nate around. When will we see each other again?

Yes, it was his 9th birthday yesterday but they celebrated early last Sunday because of his online classes. We had a video chat for a while yesterday then I sent him an audio greeting.

Here are some of his birthday photos:

Did you notice how he has grown? Look at those long legs.
Goofing around again. He is just a happy boy.
Look at how he acts around his dad.
I gave him a set of Dinosaur toys together with a book on Dinosaurs. Nissa says he loves them.

Time flies! Was it only yeterday that I made my first letter to you!

Again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATE πŸ™‚β˜ΊπŸ˜šπŸ˜‰β€πŸ§‘πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ¦•πŸ¦–πŸ¦•πŸ‘πŸ¨πŸŽ‚
