Yohan is 7

My youngest, Yohan Amiel celebrated his 7th birthday last Saturday, November 4. We celebrated it miles away from each other. If you've read some of my previous posts, Yohan is in my hometown with my mom and sister. Our lack of full-time caregiver urged us to be in this quite challenging situation. He's in first grade now, and we are missing some of his "firsts".  In contrast, the little man is enjoying  his stay there to bits. We are in constant communication, thank you for the presence of mobile phones and the Internet.  

My Mama is also happy and proud of my smart and active son's company. Sabi nya pa nga, "May isang ugali akong hindi nakita sa inyong siyam na magkakapatid. 'Yon ay ang pagiging sobrang matanong at observant nya sa lahat ng bagay." 

For his birthday, we decided not to throw a party for him there. Papa and I sent money and a box of brand new clothes (and school bag). My sister took him to nearby town and they ate at one of the famous fast food chains.  In the afternoon that day, they gave pansit and cake to our relatives and neighbors. And... the highlight of his most-awaited day - a brand new bike! 

His 7th birthday celebration will have a Part 2 next month. He'll be home for the holiday school break  which is pretty much exciting!

Happy birthday, my love.  We pray that you grow healthy, smart, and most of all God-fearing. We love you very very much!
