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.
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!
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.
