The School Starts On June 13, 2018

The school year just started this Wednesday and I got too busy, although Faith already had a carpool so we don’t need to hop for a Jeepney in the Jeepney stops, I still have to make sure she’s doing okay at her new school. This is already a big school with big class, so expect of 30+ students in the classroom, so while she was riding in a carpool going to school, I hailed a Jeepney with some of her requirements and off I go!

And since they had number of stops to picked more students in our village, I went ahead of her. I was already at school when they arrived, so I guided her to her room. She seems like comfortable already, she saw her classmate from Precious International School. But I know that she’s still finding one classmate whom she will be close with. She tried to communicate with them but to no avail maybe they were just shy of her. Some of her classmates are close to being a teenager and Faith looks like she still in Grade 2.

Her sister was worried when we went there on the 2nd day, because she went to the canteen alone, we waited for her there and Mj noticed she doesn’t have company. I asked Faith if she was bothered and she said confidently not at all. I hope though she can cope up with the subjects especially with Filipino and Aral Panlipunan, although I got her a tutor, I am still worried. I just hope everything will turn out right.

Stroller Bag Or Backpack?

I am contemplating of buying my youngest daughter a backpack or a stroller bag. I really thought to buy a stroller until I sent a message to my friend whose daughter is also studying at the new school. She said that when her daughter was in grade 5 last year they were not using a stroller bag anymore but a backpack. They felt awkward using stroller bag since they are already little teens and you see, my youngest daughter will be in Grade 5 this school year. Good thing, I did not buy yet when I went to the mall last week. I was actually, until now though contemplating whether to buy a stroller bag or a backpack. You see with her new school they should bring books everyday back and forth so to study in advance to cope up. They are actually strict with academics and grades so Faith needs to do her best. Everyday, ever since I enrolled her to the new school, I kept on talking to her that to do her best with her lessons for her not to be left behind. But anyway going back with stroller bag or backpack, I am still confused! Yeah, I am!  My friend told me that carrying backpacks caused his sister to have scoliosis. And I am afraid since my youngest daughter is very thin she might get that too. Oh God! I hope not! What do you think guys? Should I buy backpack or stroller bag.

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.

Where is the Love?

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!
