Keene ISD, Here Comes Triz!


It’s been a week since this 6th Grader of ours started school for 2017-2018 school year. What’s the most exciting part about it is that we are going public school this year! Yes, after three years at a Christian School, we feel like it is worth trying what the Keene Independent School District here in Texas offers. So, out Junior High Schooler is super ecstatic!

It was a tedious registration process. It took us half of the day from the first step to the last step until we got the congratulations part and until she got to buy her Keene Chargers t-shirt. Nonetheless, it was worth it because I can already feel that she will love it here with all the programs she is interested to take advantage of especially the Gifted and Talented Program as well as the Robotics Club.

So, we will see what the school year brings. I am sure this learner of ours will do great like she always does!

A Drum Set with Cymbals


I think it is just right to start planning for holiday gifts even if it is still over a couple months far. You see, when you have a lot of people to consider giving a gift to, it helps if you start the planning early. I think it also is easier if you want your recipients to help you pick what the best gift you can give them. So when I asked my 10-year-old daughter what she wants for Christmas, she answered me saying a pdp drum set with a cymbal would be great. I thought she was kidding but she was not.

I looked for drum sets online and yes, there is one that looks affordable. It wouldn’t make her a spoiled brat if I will get her one, will it? Well, this girl brings in all A’s from school every week so yeah, I think she deserves it.
