Cool Straps

A relaxing Thursday while we are still on school vacation. We still got a month to go before classes of our little guy officially starts this school year. Yes their school has adapted the new school calendar year starting this year.

Anyway, we went out this afternoon with my little guy while waiting for Papa to come home from work. We passed by the music store at the mall and checked on some stuff. I suddenly recalled my friend's son mentioned about looking for guitar straps. Okay he actually specified he was looking for cool types of guitar straps. Yes teens these days know what they really want and they go for it all the way sometimes.

Well I do remember coming across those cool guitar straps at guitarcenter.com two weeks ago. Those straps ensure your guitar stays securely in place while playing and helps to alleviate stress on your arm and shoulder muscles caused by the added weight of holding your instrument.

I was also scouting for an affordable guitar with good specs for my little guy. My mom was also asking about guitars to choose from since they are planning to get one for the chapel's use in their community for use during their prayer meetings. Hope we will find what we want soon.

Two Summer School Breaks in One Long Vacation This Year

We are now on the middle of the third week of June 2017. Yet we are still officially on school vacation while most students in regular schools have already started the 2017-2018 school year last week or the first week of June. It's really one long school vacation for us this year. The first I've experienced in my entire life and for my little guy as well. If we all three have passports and budget of course, we would have flown to visit my sister in Europe. But I am still saving up for that trip and perhaps when my little guy is a little older.

My little guy had about two summer vacation break worth this year as their school has moved the beginning of classes later to adopt to the new school calendar already implemented in school like the University of South Eastern Philippines and Philippine Science High School in Davao.

This change in the school year that gave us almost five months of school vacation this 2017 was to give way to the building construction of the senior high school building in their main school campus. 

I was thinking way back then to transfer to another school that will still implement the regular school year and one that has no Chinese mother tongue. But then upon my little guy's request, he wanted to experience the long summer vacation while I was thinking of the adjustment we had to go through next year during the already hot summer months and we are still on our last quarter of our new school year. Basically most students will be on vacation already by then and we're not yet. Imagine summer, going to school every day during the week on a hot summer. But we will get there when we get there. I have a mommy friend whose son already had it this year. We were already on vacation while they still had school until last month.

Well I was thinking we will finish grade school in the same school God willing.
