Idle And Being Busy

My eldest daughter already started their summer vacation, she busy herself now with playing games on her cellphone. She went out sometimes with her friends, just like last Saturday she missed swimming a lot so she ask me if I can give her some money so she can swim in a nearby subdivision. I gave her some after we got home from grocery shopping. Good thing, she decided not to transfer school at all, she would transfer when she finish her 12th grade. I can’t believe my eldest daughter will be in college soon. She is still contemplating with taking up engineering or something else.

While my eldest is just being idle at home, Faith still has some things to be done at school. Their vacation will start on May 1st. They are yet reviewing their exam this month. But today with skipped school aside me, not feeling well, she had a diarrhea yesterday and last night she vomit a number of times, good thing I decided to be absent from work, I was able to attend to her even though I was not feeling good. I guess my adrenalin rushes when I learned she vomited in the bathroom, I did not feel any pain in my back when attending her but when she’s done, the pain started again. Right now, she’s not vomiting at all, but she skipped school so I can monitor her. Hopefully, the pain that I am feeling in my back would also go away.

Definitely A Faith’s Day!

After work yesterday, we walked to get to the bank where we can withdraw our salary. It was early in the morning so we don’t worry of the heat of the sun. After we withdraw, we went to a fast food chain to eat our breakfast. It was already 7 in the morning that we finished our breakfast, I was sure that I could not make it to send Faith to her school. Good thing before we walked to the bank, I already informed my niece to give them fare to get to the school so Faith will not be late. I went home without seeing Faith and I missed her!

So instead of seeing my friends at work in the afternoon, I fetched Faith and together we went to my eldest school to pay to her tuition fee and we went to SM right afterwards. Faith asked me for her to play at the Kidzoona the moment we arrived there but they need someone to be there for her, we can’t leave her there alone and I need to buy a pair of shorts because my jeans got wet with the water bottle of Faith at the Jeepney going to Mj’s school. So we choose Zoofari for her instead, we left her there for one hour while I and sister Merlyn went to look for a cheap pair of shorts. We were able to find one at the department store. It was nice because it was a Jumper short. I was also seeing a friend who sold me a gift certificate at Felcris. She needs the money for her son’s birthday so I bought it yesterday.

After Faith enjoying her Zoofari blast, we went out to have our dinner in Kuya J at SM. No picture, it was just a simple dinner for me, Faith and sister Merlyn. We ordered Kare Kare and half roasted chicken which Faith loves so much, she ate a lot last night and it’s very rare for her to eat without insisting her to eat. She must love the roasted chicken. Yesterday was definitely a Faith’s day!

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.

Walking Around The Village

I needed to fetch Faith early today so we can attend her Kumon but then when I got to school, they’re not done yet. The teacher told me that they are having a small birthday party. One of her classmates is celebrating her 9th birthday. We waited there for a long while since the snacks did not come yet. And I was sure we will not be able to get to her Kumon on time then I realized also that I wasn’t able to bring the Kumon worksheets. So it would be a waste of effort if we still go there.

I promised Faith that I will be walking her around the village before memorizing the Multiplication table. So when we arrived home, Faith changed her clothes right away then we walk around the village. She had a great time though especially when we dropped by at our friend’s house.

She had a blast today but right after she cried because of the Multiplication table. I asked her to memorize them but she tends to forget what number is next. We are still up to 6 though and I was planning for her to master the Multiplication table at least next month.
