Summer must-dos

-A A +A

Friday, March 27, 2015


This year will definitely be a summer like no other for our family.

For the first time, my 13-year old daughter will be away from us for a two-month study tour overseas. Although we will surely miss her, I know that this trip will be a significant learning experience for her, just like when I joined a similar program when I was 14.

Summer is not just about chillaxin’ and lazing around. It’s also supposed to be a time for growing beyond classroom walls, acquiring new skills and making friends outside your usual circle.

This is the 8th year that I have been compiling the Kiddie Summer Workshops of Davao City. I hope you will have a blast checking out these summer must-dos for your kiddos!

Happy summer!
