The wonder of summer

Janette Huang-Teves

SUMMER is finally here!

It’s time to disable the recurring 5:30 a.m. alarm on weekdays and indulge in another hour or so of much-deserved sleep. Oh, what bliss to bid adieu to baon preparations and the stress of after-school traffic for the next few months!

This is the magical moment when kids can just be kids happily playing to their hearts’ content. In addition, this long break is the best chance to nurture their God-given talents. Lastly, don’t forget to squeeze in some memorable family adventures, too!

Play. Learn. Explore. Such is the wonder of summer!

Sharing to you my personal compilation of the Kiddie Summer Workshops of Davao City (Year 10).
