The Hubby For All Seasons

The Don of the Family. My hubby for all seasons!

We had a peaceful, family oriented Sunday after a month of our busy schedules.

We stayed at home. Originally, hubby wanted to go to the firing range but due to heavy rains, he stayed at home. As I was tinkering my newly purchased DSLR camera, I cant help but practice using my favorite subject : my family!

C - Consult with the teacher about your child's progress, character, attitudes

D - Demand respect and obedience at home, and your child's success is guaranteed.

Flight Via Qatar Airways

Tonight is the night. Tonight is my long awaited night. Tonight is my flight back to my home sweet home Philippines. I will be back in the arms of my handsome hubby and my lively kids. Thank you Lord.

The long 3 weeks trip to Germany is finished. It was worth the trip. We have found new suppliers and new prospect for business.

I have a lot of things to blog about.. Expect them in a couple of days.
