The only person that keeps her communication with me is my student, Ms. Kim. Her name is Kim Min Young but we call her Amy. Thanks to the Social media, we were able to connect with each other. She became very close to our family. We invited her for every occasion that we had in the base.

These photos were taken during our last days in South Korea, the Land of the Morning Calm. My Burritos have a vivid memories of the house we lived in inside the base. We did a lot of fun stuff there especially during summer.

My daughter has been practicing her piece to be played in the piano during their music recital this coming June. She was given the "Can Can" tune to play in the piano. She is very excited about it. I am not sure if Torrance Music Studio has tube screamer at their studio but they might. Their studio, although small, has a complete music instruments available for those who are taking lessons.
He was given two readings during the mass so he was kind of nervous. I must admit, I was nervous for him too but he actually did really well just like all the others. He was very confident actually, he did not need any help from the older student who accompanied him in the podium.
Moments like this makes me really appreciate the time that I spent teaching my kids at home. I know that the teachers are doing great with their job but it is important that we as parents are involve with our children when they come home. It is our role to ensure that they are doing great in school.
|After the mass, I went in my son's pew to give him a hug before we go home and I saw him giving his classmate a hug. I was smiling and asked them if I could take a photo of them, they both smiled.|
We are so proud of you Mr. Burrito. Keep up the good work, we love you!

We visited my father-in-law today and we talked about family members who have passed away already like my brother-in-law, Dave. It was around this time when he had his surgery which led to his demise six months after. I know that if he was still around, he will be carrying his humidor when visiting Dad. That's one thing that my father-in-law misses about him, his morning visits. It was their bonding by having a cup of coffee. Oh life is so unpredictable that's why it is important that we enjoy every single moment while we are still here.

My late MIL could have been 82 this year. She was born , February the 13th. Dad wanted to visit her grave on her birthday but my husband was working that day so we visited last Saturday instead.
Up top of her grave is her two sons, as you can see my FIL going to see his two sons' grave. I can see the pain in my FIL's eyes whenever we visits his wife and kids.
When we were leaving, a flower on someone's grave was blown away so my son picked up and put them back.

This post brought to you by Cooper Tire. All opinions are 100% mine.
My husband and children love to go for a ride all the time. They have "Gas Butts" as what my father-in-law would describe it (lol). I mean, I love to go places as well but not like them who get so bored when we just stay inside the house. Everyday is like a road trip for them which explains why my husband has to change the tires of the car most often to make sure that it is safe to drive on the road.
Last year, he bought four Cooper Tires because it was on sale at the local store. When it comes to car needs, I leave it solely for my husband to decide what is best for our vehicle. He said that he might buy Cooper tires again in the future but it's not his first choice. He was glad though that he tried it because he got to gauge its performance.
On the other note, did you know that there is a Cooper Tire's My Every Day Road Trip Contest this month? You can either submit a video, a photo, or a story about your experience using cooper tires.

I am so ready for Spring and Summer but it seems that Winter is hanging on for..forever. The sudden change in temperature is causing kids to get sick and it's terrible. My little Miss is down with a sickness again and it's very hard to see them suffer with illness all the time.
I can't wait for the time where we can finally enjoy the warm weather and do outdoor activities that we truly enjoy such as going to the lake or even just a family walk in the neighborhood.
Can't wait to see beautiful butterflies and birds once again...

For our movie night last weekend, we watched HOP which was shown in our paid channel in HBO. We never got to watch this when it was released in 2011 so we were glad that HBO featured it in lieu of Easter celebration. This movie was directed by Tim Hill and produced by Chris Meledandri. The stars includes Russel Brand as the voice of E.B. , Hugh Laurie as Mr. Bunny, and James Barsden as Fred O'Hare. Hank Azaria as the voice of Carlos and Phil (Villains).
This is a fun movie to watch with children, it is very entertaining and lots of lesson to learn.

PS. My dear bloggie friends, pardon me for turning off the "anyone" option in comment as my dashboard is getting flooded with anonymous comments since yesterday on this blog. They dig every post I have and leave a spam comment as you can see in the following photos. Such a hyper spammer. Basing from the time log, in every second, ten comments are being posted, whew!
Imagine sifting 2,361 comments in just 12 hours, that's quite a job lol. Take a look at the number of spam comments I have below, 5,591 arrrggghhhh..
When you comment, just click the "Comment as" drag down menu as they gave you the option to comment for Wordpress, Livejournal, etc.

If you ever need some threaded rods and you can't find it in your local hardware store, try to browse it online and I am sure that you'll find it. That is one of the many things that we can enjoy with the new technology. We can easily find the things that we need in a mere click of the mouse. You can even use your cellphone now to shop online so no matter where you are, if you need something, you can very much buy it.
