What have you learned this month?
- I have learned that we have to teach the kids that the real main star of Christmas is Jesus Christ. Not Santa Claus or themselves but Jesus Christ our Saviour.

- I've also learned this month that we have to make an effort to make time for family vacations. It takes a long way to bond each relationship. Traveling is one of the greatest things that my parents had given me and my family. I may not get the material things that I've wanted when I was a little girl, but I'll be forever thankful for exposing us to traveling and exploring the world. ♥♥♥

Morong, Bataan Day Trip

We ended the month with a day trip to Morong, Bataan.
