Outstanding Reading Ability Award

One of our bonding moment..
Hello World, how y'all doing? My daughter was fevered last night so she did not go to school today.  Not so sure why she got sick but she had a playdate last Tuesday with her best friend.  Her friend has a lot of  pets and I know that Ms. Burrito is  allergic to  rabbits that's why we  did not bring our rabbit in this Winter.  I know that she  could not resist petting her friend's bunny so it might be it but I might be wrong.  I am still thankful that they invited her over, they live in a rich neighborhood which is the opposite of our abode so she get to experience different environment.

On the other note, I am so impressed of Mr. Burrito's progress in reading.  He doesn't enjoy reading as much as Ms. Burrito does but we read  everyday anyway because I wanted him to  be able to improve of what he have learned  already.  

I was surprised when he came home last week with a reading award during Dr. Seuss' birthday celebration.  We read three books that day and he read it with a very little help from me.  He can read pretty well now.
They will have a mass on Thursday next week and he was assigned to read two  readings.  He is excited  and anxious at the same  time but I told him that he is going to  be just fine.  My little man is not very serious compared to Ms. Burrito but I know that he is  equally smart as her.  He just wants to goof around all the time.  I hope that he would change when he grows up.  He is starting to build his self confidence  now that he can read.  
I want to thank my "Nanay" here in the neighborhood for giving me this pair of  leather gloves.  I don't have an MIL, she passed away before I got here so  having someone like  "Nanay Ruth" is pretty amazing.  My Burritos called them Lolo and Lola as they treat my kids like their own grandchildren.  

Ms. Burrito bakes stuff with her Lola most of the time especially during summer time.  They also learn different tricks from their Lolo especially outdoor stuff.  We are so blessed to have them in our lives.   I am so happy that they always want to get involve with  what we do especially kids events in school.

Anyhow, I have been encouraging my Nanay to start a blog as a hobby because she is retired already and I think that she would like having  to interact with blogpals  on her  free time.  I helped her set up a blog yesterday and I hope that it would be a start of an enjoyable  hobby for my Nanay.  If you can spare a minute or two, would you please help me welcome her in the blogland?  Here is her blog  Ruth's e-Kitchen & Beyond.  Thank you!
