Summer Break

Garden of Grace Girls Academy ended the school year on May 26.  We were all looking forward to a break after the intense weeks of work finishing the term.  We did not have a long time to relax though, as we began again on June 6.  That means that summer vacation for our girls was a total of 10 days!

Before we sound like mean and despicable homeschooling parents, allow me to explain.  We began the school year after we returned from furlough in September.  That is why we are just completing.  In the Philippines, school begins in June.  (The students here began June 6, also.)  June is also the beginning of the rainy season so it's not the best time for playing outside anyway.  We also want to finish school before our furlough which will begin in April, 2012 due to the girls' passports expiring.  So they are trading a short summer now for an extended one when we visit the US next year.

In order to make the most of our time, we took a trip to Baguio for a change of place and some indulgences such as McDonald's and Starbucks.  We also took a mini-vacation at Riverview Water Park while in the area.

It is a beautiful place,

In a beautiful setting,

With beautiful people,

The weather cooperated and we spent 2 days in the water and sun.
