This day in history from:

Nico's First Day

It was Nico's first day at school today. Felt like Marlin taking Nemo to school, without the East Australian Current adventure part, of course.

We were prepared for a morning class (8:30 to 11:00 a.m.) for the nursery class, but fortunately for him, he was bumped up to junior kindergarten (11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) due to his age. But for this week, they will have one-hour sessions only, to orientate (yes, this is an English word) them on the school routines, etc.

My father joked how well he performed in school because he got promoted even before he attended a single class. That's the good news.

The bad news is his class schedule will make it impossible for me to take him to and from school, if I still want to earn a living. Fortunately, his school is technically walking distance from the house (it's in the same subdivision).

Nico was not one for separation anxieties. He did not cry when I left. But then again, the nanny stayed with him today (and only for this week). Bea cried a lot during her first day.

Since this was pre-school, I think they will have light sessions for the first two months and then the teacher will attempt to teach them gradually.

So now, I have all my kids in school. It's very scary, if you ask me, given the cost of education these days, but hopefully, I can pull all of them through until they finish.

My, how time flies!

One moment, I was just cradling my children in my arms, the next moment, they're all in school. Pretty soon, they'll be old enough... and so will I. I hope I will have time to attend to both my kids. But wait a minute! I have to make time...

Again, the travails of a single parent...

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.

and will conduct myself as a lawyer

and discretion with all good fidelity
as well to the courts as to my clients;

or purpose of evasion.
So help me God.
