Jerry got back to Cebu last Friday after 8 days in Manila. So last Saturday was a specially busy day as I have put off some errands until he was around.
Ruby Anniversary Preparation (Update):
We were out of the house by 930 am, leaving just Jake and nanny at home. Our first stop was downtown Cebu for the florist that we contacted to make the floral arrangement for our church decor on the 40th anniv. The sample was pretty impressive! It still needs minor adjustments but I was glad my idea was executed really well, the way I imagined it to be. Here, the chapel aisle would be lined with this….
My sister had a similar bridal bouquet made for her 2 years ago, 3 dozens of red long-stemmed roses which according to her cost her P3,000. The one we’re using for December…. a total of 10 flower stands with 3 dozens red roses per stand or 30 dozens in all, is not even anywhere near P3,000! I think I’m getting the hang of playing the role of wedding planner. Hehehe….
Report Card Distribution
After the week-long sem break, it was time to find out the result of the boys’ 2nd quarter academic efforts. Grade 4 Kyle maintained his 1st honors status while 1st year high school Matt dropped from the Top 10 in his level after getting 2nd honors. His Math and Science grades went down a couple of points. Oh well. He wasn’t too happy about it.
After getting the cards, Matt stayed behind for his group’s sleep-over at school. It’s going to be a fun time with his class/groupmates/friends and I’m sure this would cheer him up.
Asilo de la Milagrosa
Next stop after downtown and the school was the office at the Asilo de la Milagrosa where we dropped off the bags of stuff we have gathered after doing some de-cluttering at home. We hope to be able to make some orphans happy with these used (but still in good condition) rubber shoes…
So that was how Saturday morning went…A few more stops and then we were back to base for lunch…
