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 kids had their recital on March 3 last month, I really asked my boss to allow me to take a half day absent because I need to attend and will watch their show. Good thing, they approved it, even though it was already the last minute that I informed them about the event.
I think I already posted here their recital but not this video that I will be posting a little bit later. I loved to dance and when I was still young, I used to dance; I even joined dance performance during our scholar’s sports fest in college. And I am proud to say that I and my team dance hip hop so well (grinning) and maybe Mj took that talent from me because she danced so well too. She looks conscious with the stepping but she conquered it until the very last minute.
I was a proud Mom when I watched her and I can’t help to scream and cheer for her. Yeah, it sounded like she is in a competition, striving so hard to win, I feel like it.
On the other hand, I was able to take a video of her and her school mates dancing their heart out in NCCC Mall. They look so cool and I was teary eyed!
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.
This is it! This time I really have to transfer my eldest daughter to another school. When I got her report card the other day, I was disappointed. She didn’t have any failed marks but the grades are not so pleasing to the eyes. I’d been planning her to transfer school since after first year high school but didn’t do it because she promised she will do better this time. I can see her effort, her sleepless nights just to finish her projects but I guess her teachers don’t see it. All of the efforts don’t count at all. We gave up swimming just for her to concentrate in school, but maybe just maybe she couldn’t cope the standard in their school.
I thought Mj was the only one who’s grades are almost failing. I didn’t know that many of us complaints of how those teachers compute their grades. Just to imagine one student was given 63, of course the Dad complained, he even questioned the teacher, if the attendance doesn’t count at all. I wanted to complain but because I don’t have base of all her scores because I was not that active at all following her and her scores, I didn’t anymore.
