I was so happy that both of my kiddos are doing excellent in school. They brought home their first progress report and was so pleased to see their ratings. Now, I can say that it's all wort it when I decided to teach them at home instead of sending them to school for their pre-school year. When they entered kindergarten, they are ready for the challenges. I even got a praise from my daughter saying "You're the best teacher Mom!" I feel good that I taught them the basic stuff that they need to learn before they started the "real" school. The great thing about teaching your kids is that you can basically get materials such as math worksheets for 4th graders online. These tools are really helpful for an effective teaching whether at the school or at home. Scholastic Printables offer a wide range of topics that covers different subjects from Pre-K to 8th grade. So if you ever need some materials to use in your teaching activity, check out the link I have provided above, they have plenty of useful materials. Below are the report cards of my kids.

Ever since "Santa" gave Ms. Burrito her kitchen set, she has been so interested with foods. Both of the Burritos has been pretending to be chefs and restaurateur. They set up a booth at their bedroom which they named "Space Bar". They would "cook" different menus using their play dough and they would invite us to eat. They have prices on each so we pay real money and they put their cash in their piggy banks.
Both of them are very business minded and it always makes me and hubby smile. Ms. Burrito love watching Food Network. Her favorite, which also my favorites, are Chopped, Iron Chef America, Giada at Home, 30 minute meals, Cupcake Wars, Sweet Genius and more.

We know a lot of friends and family who is celebrating birthdays this month including Kelli, Dad Jennings, Gracie, our Jack Russel Terrier dog, Champ, and Lola Ruth. THe kids made some puto during Lola Ruth's birthday and they spent some time with them.
My own little model is always ready for photo opportunity. As a Mom, I love taking pictures of them so that when they grow up, they would see it and look back to their childhood years. Aside from clothes, my little girl love to showcase her shoes when she's posing in front of the camera. She loves wearing shoes with heels and she can't wait till she can wear her boots again.
We were eating our dinner tonight and she suddenly remember Abby Sciuto, the character that Pauley Perette has in NCIS TV series. My daughter would always ask why Abby is wearing a dog collar and her shoes has spikes in it. I told her that her style is Goth and I showed her the same shoes that I found at Jildor such as the jeffrey campbell shoes. Most of Jeffrey Campbell shoes selection has spikes in it. I like the Bullet-2 Platform Pump Black leather that they have. It is so chic and stylish.

Our kids are very close to two families in our neighborhood. I mean all of our neighbors are really nice but the Howell's and the Fanchers are the ones that they always visits and bond with. One of the girls from the H family gave Ms. Burrito an anklet. My kids call the ladies their Ate's (older sister). Their Mom was the one who also gave Ms. Burrito the special angel bracelet below.
I was taking snaps of my daughter's feet and Bolt posed for me too. Pardon for the dark photos, these were taken at nighttime.Color Connection. You can post any color that you like. Just copy the code below and put it in your post and have fun.

Gracie brought some of her games at Dad's the other day and the Burritos had a great time playing with her. It's so nice to see these three playing together. They don't have many cousins to play with, only the three of them are the closest in age.

My husband ignited our children's interest in collecting stuff when he showed them his old stamp and old coin collections. Now both of our children collect things like rocks, buttons, bottle caps and such. Here's my son looking at the coins that his Dad collected over the years. We actually looked at the value of some of his collection and some has a high value and some are just average. Collecting as a hobby is pretty cool because you never know if the stuff you are collecting is worth a lot as time goes by.
However, if you really want a good collection, you can invest to an American eagle gold coin and watch your investment go big like a balloon in years. If I have a lot of resources, I would invest into this kind of venture because it can be worth in the years to come. The important thing to remember though, before investing into coins is to make sure that the company you are investing your money into, is authentic. You don't want to be a victim of fraud and believe me, there are people out there that are good in deceiving others. So to make sure that your investment is in good hands, check out the company's standing and reputation in the market.
How about you, do you collect as a hobby? Do you venture into this kind of investment? You may leave me your opinion about investing into gold coins at the comment section.
