Faith finally had done her declamation last February 07, 2017. All I prayed was that she won’t forget and that she can recite well. I even asked before the day of the competition if she knows what to do already with her declamation, she answered YES confidently and when I said really, she said she will just have to pray.
I got so nervous when her number was called; she was even in the number 1 contestant. I could not take her a look on the stage. I even told her teacher if she can take a video of Faith while she’s on the stage for remembrance. She gladly went in front to film her.
And we were so happy that Faith was able to finish the whole piece without stammering, she finishes it all! She doesn’t have many actions unlike with the other contestant but I don’t care. This is a long journey of Faith and she accomplished it so much. Thank God!
Yesterday my youngest daughter and I went to her previous school to attend the literary contest of her school mates, she needs to watch to get some ideas on how to do things on the stage. I’m telling you I am the one who is very nervous of this contest, it’s her first time and she is just so cool about it.
When we arrived at the school where they held the Poem and the story telling contest, Faith then exclaimed “wait, a minute, I know this place!” of course she know the place because she spent her pre-school, kindergarten and grade 1 years in that school. She was looking forward seeing her classmate but her classmate is in another building already because they are in the same year with Faith and the building that we went was the pre-school/grade 1 department.
Faith asked me to take a picture of her, she never been to this place after she transferred school and I guess she was overwhelmed seeing the school that she started.
Today is her declamation contest and upon writing this post, I have goosebumps already. I am not asking her to win or something, she just has to memorize and do the actions that she has been coach with. And I am sure she can do it. Way to go Faith! I am always proud of you!
I have mentioned before that our eldest daughter is progressing very nicely with the guitar. She is becoming a skilled guitarist. She has recently expressed and interest in learning to play the drums. This past summer she started taking lessons. We were thinking of taking advantage of a musiciansfriend stupid deal and getting her a practice drum set pad set. Hopefully this will let us practice, save us the expense of buying a full set of drums (if she decides to not continue) and save our eardrums when she practices. We hope she is successful in her music endeavors and want to help her in any way we can to help her improve her music skills.
It was on Monday, we were so indulged on watching the Ms. Universe at home when I received a text message from my friend at school, saying that Faith is one of the awardee. I didn’t expect that she will be one of the honors at school, it has been two consecutive periodical that Faith wasn’t able to receive anything so I didn’t expect already that she will receive one this time.
I was not able to attend to her recognition at school, I was too late already and as usual Faith complaints about it that I don’t have time for her already. But good thing Faith is very understanding when I explained to her everything, she kept quiet and went on with her regular activities. I promised next time, I will be there.
