Chess Winner

Hello everyone, I apologize if I haven't been around in your blog today. We were so busy in school and other activities at home.   Today was the first day of the Catholic School Week celebration at St. Joe's dubbed as "Faith , Academics, and Service."  It was an Open House today and parents and grandparents were invited to come  to the classroom and   see how  the kids  act and participates  with the teacher's lessons.  Mr. Burrito   got a special seat in the classroom and he got the chance to participate with the other children.  This experience  helped boost Mr. Burrito's confidence to go to school.
In the afternoon, they had the computer class.  It's amazing how kids are so  good with computer  stuff nowadays unlike  in my generation lol.  Mr. Burrito learned some  stuff on the computer too.
Ms. Burrito and Billy.  These two are the Asians  in their class.  Ms. Burrito and Billy were  awarded   for their good deeds.  In their class, they have this behavior chart where the teacher give them  sticker every time they do a good deed then at the 9th week, the students with most stickers gets a a prize.
When we came home, we played  play doh.  Ms. Burrito  made these, pretty timing for letter C of  ABC Wednesday  isn't it?  Believe me, I did not ask her to do that.  She showed it to  me  when she was almost done.
This reminds me when I was still single.  I am always at the end of the line whenever we have to claim our   Christmas Bonus in the school where I worked then because  my Maiden name starts with letter O but when I got married to C, I got in front of the line... such a relief lol.
After dinner, Ms. Burrito  challenged Champ to play chess with  her but Champ thought it's  boring lol.
Ms. Burrito played with  Mr. C and today was the very first time she  won against my husband  wohooooo.
Alright, sorry for this long post,  I am  just in the mood to go on and on lol.  By the way, please join me with Ms. Burrito's  Color Connection meme every Friday.  You can  post  any color that you like.

Ciao everyone and thank you for  your visit and comments.

Yours truly,

Rose a.k.a Chubskulit

    School is certainly different from when I was there, or even when my boys were there. Your little Burrito will o just fine.

  10. What fun! I taught in a Christian independent school and we had days like that. The best day of the year was always "Grandparents Day" and the kids loved to show their grandparents around. It was way more fun than having the parents in - sorry! lol
