Recital Night, Cars, and Baby Names

Hi! Between homeschooling and WAH gigs, I’m super busy at the moment. Nevertheless, I decided anyway to squeeze in some time for my neglected blog. Don’t count on anything thought-provoking though. I want to keep things light here since I’m doing mental acrobatics with all my writing assignments. It’s really more of just pics from Sunday night. It was our church’s annual recital. I didn’t emcee this year. Chip did, but I wrote the script. Mark sang the solo part of the finale number, btw. So pics!


In baby news, we’re in the process of looking for another vehicle. Right now we have a sedan, which is designed to seat 4, but can squeeze in 5 (3 of whom are prepared to be uncomfortable at the back) without the car seat. When the baby comes, it means he stays in the back with Marguerite, who’s still too little to sit in front, and I will get a crick in my neck with all the straining and craning I’ll have to do sitting in the front passenger seat. That’s why we think we should get a vehicle with three rows. We’re not that particular. It’s not like we want a new BMW, but Mark is determined not to drive a station wagon or a minivan. He’s looking at big 4WD things. Then again, we might just stick to our car. Who knows? Speaking of the baby, we don’t have a name yet. Marguerite likes Diego, but we’re brainwashing her into choosing something else. For starters, Diego already belongs to a problematic uncle of mine… and the name is really very popular in the Philippines.

Looks like a fun event to attend to. We need a bigger vehicle too.

It was. I guess most families reach that point when a bigger vehicle is just called for. :)

Marguerite looks quite rapt. I think of Diego as Spanish or Mexican. Lots of the Philippine names are very foreign to me.

@Sharkbytes: 300+ years of Spanish rule would leave lots of influences. The name thing is at the top of the list. :)

@Chip: That would be cool if we could put in IV at the end, lol - Magnus *insert equally pompous sounding (apologies to the Magnuses out there) second name* Goze the Fourth... We'll see. :D

Sounds like it was a fun event...You really need a minivan.
Hey, I added you to my blogroll since I cleaned up my blogroll. You might want to check it out.

We had to get a bigger car when Hero arrived too. We got a Suzuki APV. Very sensible and roomy.

Hi, Nikka. Yeah, I remember you mentioning that you just bought a new vehicle.
