A Recognition For This Two, Congratulations My Beautiful Daughters

Faith made it, as I mentioned on my previous post. She was able to make it to 2nd place during the Spelling Bee just this month in school. She woke me up with great news when they arrived home. During their recognition, she asked me a favor to be there to witness her getting the medal. At first, I asked her if I’ll just let her teacher do the pictures but she said that it is important for her, for me to be there. Faith asked favor, I mean with serious rarely, so even I don’t have sleep that time, I dragged myself, drank a cup of coffee so I will be awake the whole time I was there. She was so happy when she saw me, feeling so proud of her achievement.

She was embarrassed at first because she thought she doesn’t have an award and she was already at the stage. She run towards her teacher and hugged her. I told her to climb the stage again because her Principal is already waiting for her. She went back and had a wide smile when she received the certificate and the medal.

This is the time when finally she was able to hold her certificate

Faith was just a substitute for the Spelling Bee,  she was the 2nd choice and yet she made it. Congrats my little Faith!

I was sleeping at that time when my cellphone rang, I didn’t hear it. I didn’t know that Mj tried so hard to reach me out so she can get her report card. She needs a text message from me that she can get her report card because she knows that I will not able to make it to her school because I was sleeping during day time. She text her cousin who was at work that time to confirm she had our approval. My niece sent her a message that she can get it. When she already has her report card on hand, she took a picture of it and said “Just a little bit more Mom and I will be one of the honors”. I usually don’t ask for anything more, what I am asking from them is to do good at school, no line of 7 for their grades and I will be more than happy. But Mj went beyond my expectation especially with her major subject; seeing her report card brought me tears I am so proud of her.

They Ended It With A Blast

Just got too busy this month, you see been attending parties at almost every weekend. Oh well spare me, who would not party when it’s December right?

The kids ended their classes with a blast. Faith was awarded for 2nd place during their Spelling Bee at school. It was so unexpected because she was only a substitute, her classmate who supposedly a representative was absent at that time and her teacher just grabbed her. During the contest, while she was waiting for her contender to finish, she got bored that she draw and make doodles on the answer board, when it was the time to show the answer, she had so many drawing on her answer board, it made her Principal laugh so hard.

Just after I learned that Faith got the 2nd spot on the Spelling Bee contest. Mj called me and told me that she was able to do it, her grades was higher this time. Yes she was not one of the honors but knowing the fact that she worked hard for her grades to make it higher than of what we expected that is good enough for me already.

Indeed, they deserve the gifts this Christmas.

Their Awards Are My Jewel

There is no things that can surpass of these gifts during my kids Moving Up day, I was surprised when I found out that Faith was able to get an academic award, she received a silver medal for that. When I arrived at the venue, I saw Faith smiling so wide, grinning while looking at me. Her eyes are saying something, something that I and she will be proud of and I know exactly what it is.

My eldest daughter Moving Up day is scheduled in the afternoon. Mj was able to get a special award from her swimming. I can’t be happier seeing these awards on our wall, wish to have a wall full of their awards.

Dream Big But No Pressure

It’s not that I am losing hope; I mean I know my youngest daughter is full of surprises good or bad, bad or good. But honestly, I didn’t know she will receive an academic award during her Moving Up day. I asked my 2 sisters to accompany Faith at the venue since I could not attend the ceremony and when I got there, I was surprised when I found she had a silver award. I congratulate her right away when she saw me in the back. But she was too busy to respond, she said she needs to get the portfolio from her teacher and the school newspaper.

I know Faith can surpass my expectation, it is just that I don’t expect too much it is because I want her to enjoy her school without feeling any pressure. But she did it, she just did it! And too bad I wasn’t there to put the medal on her, work sometimes sucks especially during this very important event but I know I can’t stop I need to work hard for them, for my family.

Faith is grinning so wide while eating her lunch, she felt so proud that she was able to make it although she said she wanted to get the topnotch, I answered “As long as you enjoy what you are doing, dream big”. Although I wish of her to get to the top but I don’t pressure her because I know and I am sure that instead of her being inspired she might end up affecting her negatively.

So we are taking it slowly but surely. As long as we were able to study in Filipino and Sibika, everything will turn out fair.
