What makes me smile....

Looking at this picture makes me really smile.... Its a low quality photo but i just love staring at this. I just love that smile on Harvey's face. This was taken while harvey and I were having dinner at home.

Last Friday, was Harvey's first day in school...I was feeling all sorts of emotions as my husband and I brought him to school. I was feeling excited, scared, happy and sad all at the same time. Excited because, I can see excitement in Harvey's face as he was changing to his school uniform in the morning. Scared, because I have fears that he might have difficulty in adjusting to a new environment - having new classmates etc... and of course the fear of most Moms - being bullied by other kids. I pray everyday that he will not experience that. Happy - because he is now a school boy again. He was already studying back in Manila before we flew here in Australia. I felt so guilty when he has to stop schooling because we have to move here last August. When we arrived here, I could not enroll him to school because he was still under age. So I still have to wait for a few months before I can enroll him. So for these, I tried teaching him and refreshing all the lessons that has been taught to him back home. And Sad because, I have no one to tag alongwhen I want to go to the mall, groceries and even the post office. It feels so weird walking and doing things alone. Miss him.

Neways,I just wish my son will have a great time in school - that we would easily adjust to a very new environment and that he would excel in everything he does.I just want him to be happy.

Then for some scrap sharing... I have made these as gifts to 2 of my closest friends here.

Close up... and here is the other set... I forgot to take a pic of this when it was already framed...You should try creating these!!! I'm in the process of making a set for our walls too!!! will be sharing it as soon as im done!!!

I love those wall pieces, Ate Cooks! Am very inspired. Might give them a go now that I've finally unpacked my stash. Haha...

And I'm sure Harvey will do well - he seems like a smart kid. *huggies*
