NDGM celebrated its 53rd Foundation Day last week. This year's theme is "Imitating Mary as Witness to Jesus' Love and Mercy". Elementary School Day (Preschool to Grade 6) is scheduled on September 7 while High School Day (Grade 7 to 10) is September 8.
The September 7 Event started with Notre Dame procession. The procession is from the Main Gymnasium going around outside the school's vicinity. We didn't join in the procession to give the little girl some time to rest.
After the procession is the assembly of the ES students to assigned classrooms per section to prepare them for the presentation. Then, it was followed by the Elementary School Mass Demonstration at the Main Gymnasium.

We went for a night swimming three weeks ago to celebrate my MILs birthday in a nearby resort across our house. Everyone agreed for a night swimming so we can make preparations for the event in morning. This is also to avoid sunburns in daytime and for a much cooler dip in the pool. The youngsters were happy to see each other again for a longer cousin bonding. The day after, we went for a buffet dinner in Solaire Fresh as hubby's treat for his mom. Since it is our first time, we stroll around the casinos for some picture taking :).
My two boys confirmation day was held yesterday in Shrine of Our Lady Of Grace, Grace Park Caloocan. Catholic churches usually schedule confirmation only once a year and normally falls on the Feast Day of the Church. Their confirmation was administered by Bishop Pablo Virgilio David, the assigned bishop of the Diocese of Caloocan.
We decided to only have one pair of sponsor each as godparents for their confirmation. We chose our closest relative as their Ninong and Ninang.
