Panaad 2012: Divine Mercy Shrine

7:12 PM | , ,

At early stage of her life, we taught Alex to be prayerful. She can memorize the basic prayers like Our Father, Hail Mary, Angel of God, Grace before Meal and Glory be. She somehow can utter some words of the Apostle Creed. Most importantly, we tried to make her understand that the Easy way to get something is to pray Hard.

Panaad or Panata is the time for us adults to spend time for reflection and prayers together with the family. And we in the family have made it an annual practice. The Carmelite Monastery was our favorite destination during Holy Thursday. But this time we decided to go for a change. We chose to have our Stations of the Cross at the Divine Mercy Shrine, El Salvador City.

This was Alex's second time to go to the Divine Mercy Shrine but it does looked like her first time seeing some new scenes and buildings and she even wanted to stay there a bit longer on a tent. Probably next time around.

It was a fun moment with the family.

Alex's Silver Medal Award - Recognition SY 2011-2012

6:19 PM | ,

If have something to show, flaunt it!
During the Second Half of the school year 2011-2012, Alex was showing a spectacular performance. She was among four candidates to receive a Gold Medal award if grades are maintained until the end of the school year. Unfortunately, kids have flaws and so is Alex. She had this habit of being so talkative and lazy at times copying what's required of them.

We were not pressured or worried anyway. We just have to keep her reminded of her good performance at school. She's still a kid and we don't want her to miss that moment in her life being one. Let our kids be kids during their days.

Alex receiving her Silver Medal had made us happy more than ever. But unlike the previous Silver Medal award, daddy was a bit more cautious this time unwilling to scramble trashes to look for lost medal.

Some of Alex's special moments:
