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.
My two kids are too busy at school nowadays.
My eldest daughter is one of the dancers at school and they were practicing really hard since they are going to perform it in NCCC Mall next month for their recital. And right after their dance practice, she would go to the other room to practice for their school band; she is the lead guitar so she needs to practice especially when she will be given a chance to have some time to strum the guitar in solo. Next week she will also be in training for MTAP, she is one of the representatives for the incoming Math Inter-school Competition.
My youngest daughter is also busy nowadays. It has been like two Saturdays already that she needs to go to school for her declamation practice. The declamation contest will be on February 7 in Colegio De San Ignacio and I am sure to watch it since I already filed a leave to watch her.
Yesterday was Mj’s competition for DCAA and as usual I was not there to attend to her in the morning. Just like in DAPRISA she was attended by her teacher at school. One of her teacher fetches her here and sent her to the venue. I was not there because I had work until at 12 noon. I didn’t have to worry anymore of whom I should ask to attend to her because the school represented already. This is what I like of her school because everyone is just so supportive.
When I arrived at the venue, I didn’t expect that her principal is there also to watch her swimming. I was so overwhelmed; it is simply my first time that everyone including the Principal is there to support. If only I can turn back time, I already transferred my eldest daughter to this school way back when I transferred Faith, maybe we did not stop the training because I have the whole school to cheer Mj with her swimming competition. Thank you Proverbsville for the undying support, salute to the Principal and the whole faculty members including the students.
Wow, it has been a month that I was not able to update this blog. Oh well, so many things happened and I believe it happen for a reason. Remember last March, an incident happen to my daughter, in which I decided to have her transfer this school year. At first I was really confused if to transfer her or not but when I tried to enroll her to the same school, the teacher asked of her at home, and I told her she’s absolutely okay at home. If she could not use gadgets or watched TV she just simply read her favorite books. The teacher made a comment that she sometimes have tantrums at school. So even if I already have some money on hand, I decided to have her entrance exam in a different school, non traditional this time. Oh well Faith likes the new school because of the violin, geez I need to save to buy her a new violin.
The result of her exam was perfect in English but on her Filipino, we might not want to talk about that but for sure Faith will going to have a summer class at the school nearby. I am so excited for her but I hope on the first day I am there to attend her, how I wish it will be my day off.
