On vacation

First day of my two-week vacation.

RG started band camp today at Jubilee Place. He received a band scholarship from Junior High. He was awarded this scholarship for his excellent performance in Band and diligent attendance in the flute choir and jazz band. Yesterday was registration and audition day. 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. One-week camp started today, from 8:45 am to 3:30 pm. We got up early, dropped off RC and RK at my sister's place and then I dropped off RG at Jubilee Place. I couldn't let RG on the bus by himself since he had to cross the highway and the cars and buses go very fast there. Besides, there are no traffic lights on that stop, only a crosswalk where you push a button that turns the lights on to alert drivers that you are crossing the street.

It rained almost the entire day.

Auntie D and Sparky came from Minneapolis. They will be staying here for one week. We went to Folklorama - Pearl of the Orient Philippine Pavilion. The show that we watched was almost the same as the one we watched last year. The wedding dance, the tinikling, the binasuhan. The show was still fantastic. The mayor was in the audience. Auntie D wanted to watch the next show, the one with the Igorot dance. I did too, but the kids were already tired. Oh maybe next year.
