|My lola’s home is just 1km away from the beach.|
He asked, “Bakit gumagalaw ang water mommy (while pointing at the waves)?” I paused and asked myself too, “How can I simplify my answer to his question? Should I give him a dose of my Earth Science lesson when I was in first year high school?”
Not to sound too technical I responded, “It’s because of the wind anak. It pushes the water when it blows. You call that waves. Say it again, waves.” I said.
He responded, and then smiled. Since he is a brilliant boy, I’d like to believe that he understood me. 🙂
After that, he started to ask questions after questions. I grabbed that opportunity to answer them.

His cousins also taught him how to catch one. 🙂
|A refreshing morning!|
|To date, this is my favorite picture with Mama.
I can’t believe she was so game with my jump shot idea! (Papa took this picture)
|Mailiw nak kadakayu amin. (I am missing all of you!)|
*Thank you for warmly accommodating us. I am looking forward to spending more days with you. Let us not meet after three years again okay? Let us meet soon! 🙂
Before we left, my son waved good bye to the beach. He remembered what I taught him. He said, “Good bye waves!”
How I love that morning!
