Visita Iglesia Today

We have been reviewing the boys’ Nihongo these past days. They studied the days of the week, the months of the year, the katakana and hiragana, numbers 1-20 and the colors. In addition, Nikki now knows left, right, front and back, sit down and stand up in Nihongo. I think it’s great that he learns so fast. We also now know how to say “one more time”: mou ikkai. Cool. Even I am learning as we go! Nikki also knows the lyrics to the Japanese version of Mary Had a Little Lamb. It’s so cute! Next week we will try to study more Nihongo and then review from time to time. This way, they won’t easily forget their past “lessons”.


Today we did the Visita Iglesia (church visit). We only had time to visit 7 churches but I suppose with the boys along, it was enough. Like most (if not all) Holy Week weather it was quite warm today but not as warm as the last time we did the Visita Iglesia. The last time I remember it was sweltering. But today it was just warm and a bit humid. Nikki had fun holding on to the point and shoot cam and just taking lots of photos. Unfortunately, the ISO setting on the cam was set to HIGH so almost all the photos were grainy. I blame myself for this booboo. I should have checked the settings before handing the cam to Nikki. But although most of the photos (almost all) were ruined, I promised him that we would go around the garden tomorrow to take photos to make up for today. He was okay with that. 🙂

Anyway, we went to churches of different barrios/barangays: San Roque, Sta. Maria, Pasonanca, Putik, Guiwan, Tetuan, and the Cathedral. We could have gone to 3 more churches but dad had to be somewhere this afternoon so it was just those seven today. The boys didn’t do much praying because they were distracted by the activities in the church (decorating, cleaning, etc.). It was okay though. As long as they didn’t run around in church and make noise, I was content. 🙂
