ROCKERs Post-All Saints Day Celebration in the news!

From ROCKERs’ coordinator Teachermama Tina:

I was supposed to post this earlier but forgot to! Anyway, the ROCKERs Post-All Saints’ Day party yesterday was a success, thank You Lord and to all the parents and kids who participated. Incidentally, a news article about the party came out LAST week on CBCP for Life’s website (here) and was picked up a few days later by CBCP News (here). I was also privileged to share about ROCKERs, Catholic parenting and homeschooling on Radyo Veritas last Sunday.

Anyway, yesterday’s event went well, and the preparations paid off especially at the sight of the little saints all together! (I will post about in detail soon on my blog and here as well).

(More photos here).

THE NEXT ROCKERS’ ACTIVITY IS ON NOVEMBER 10, SATURDAY, 9AM-11AM AT THE MEDELA HOUSE. We will be having an Advent activity for families. 😉 More details soon!

God bless everyone!

ROCKERs Philippines October 7 “Workshop” with My Masterpiece Movement

Posted by ROCKERs servant Teachermama Tina

Thank You Lord for the wonderful teacher-artists from My Masterpiece Movement, especially Mommy Anna, who offered to hold an interactive multi-arts storytelling workshop/performance for our small group of Catholic homeschoolers (ROCKERs!) We all had so much fun – praise God too for the generous Medela Moms Beng and Maricel, who hosted the activity (again!) at the Medela House.

The kids and I (and Ate Lyn!) went early so we could prepare the place. We rode the FX and LRT to Gilmore station and walked to the Medela House. It was pretty tiring because I was carrying a backpack with my not-so-light laptop in it, plus wearing Rysse in front with my Next 9 pouch (I SO love the convenience of babywearing! hehe!).

Anyway, we had fun setting up. I am/we are trying to teach the kids consistently about the concept of service / serving others by helping out, doing chores, etc.

They also had so much fun playing while waiting for the others to arrive, I was a bit nervous that they’d prefer staying in the designated “kids’ play room” rather than joining the workshop. Hehe. Thank God I was wrong to feel so!

Maricel kindly prepared a few toys and books for the kids to play with during idle time.

Sharing is caring!

To make a long story short, the afternoon was AWESOME! 🙂 Filled with fun, story-songs, dancing, singing and even being quiet! 😉

You can view more photos of the activity here and here.
